One lawsuit after the other, it seems like Apple can’t have a break! Recently Apple was sued over butterfly defective keyboards used in 2015 MacBooks and their 2016-2017 MacBook Pro while knowing that the keyboard was defective before launch. The main defect with the new butterfly mechanism is that keys stop working once enough dust builds up under the keys. As a result, customers were made to pay between 400 to 500 dollars in repairs in cases where the laptop was no longer under Apple warranty. A second lawsuit has been recently filed, with this one claiming that Apple has breached several new laws some of which is due to the company not honoring the warranty.
Apple’s nightmare doesn’t end here, court documents revealed that the company new that the iPhone 6 would bend (remember bendgate?) before releasing the phone. Honestly, of course, they knew… smartphones undergo many durability tests before launching, but here it is a new PR nightmare. Apple, get your shit together. Oh, and my MacBook Pro’s keyboard better not stop working.
