Apple, among other things, acknowledged that the keyboard is prone to problems like sticking keys, as well as duplication of characters.

Laptop owners can bring them to the Apple Store or an authorized service center. Replacement will be made for individual keys or for the entire keyboard. Customers who previously tried to solve problems with the keyboard, promised to refund the cost of repairs.

The program was launched as a response to the discontent of Butterfly-keypad users (the butterfly-type mechanism) of the first and second generations. They filed a class action lawsuit against the company and launched a petition on Change.org .
