Apple has determined that on some MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro models, a small number of keyboards may have one or more of the following conditions:

  • Letters or characters are unexpectedly repeated
  • Letters or characters do not appear
  • Button feels sticky or button feedback is inconsistent

Apple or Apple Authorized Service Providers will provide free services for qualifying MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro keyboards. The type of service will be determined after checking the keyboard and may involve replacing one or more buttons or the entire keyboard.
