Apple will pay $50 million to settle ‘butterfly’ keyboard class-action lawsuit

Apple agreed to a preliminary settlement Monday for a class-action lawsuit that claimed the company knew the MacBook’s “butterfly” keyboard was defective but kept selling it. Apple admits no wrongdoing but agreed to pay up to $50 million, most of which will go to customers who had to replace the faulty keyboards.

This is good news for people in seven U.S. states who experienced problems with their MacBook butterfly keyboard.

Apple introduced the butterfly design in 2015 and built it into MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air for several years. It’s very slim but some users claim that the keys can become permanently jammed by small pieces of grit. The fix required replacing the entire keyboard and other components.
