What is The Apple Macbook Keyboard Settlement

Apples Butterfle Keyboard and the numerous defects customers encountered while using the keyboard has led to the company getting sued. Emails have already been sent out to claimants, explaining that Apple is paying $50 million into a settlement fund.  The suit however applies to people who purchased a MacBook in California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, or Washington state. The affected customers will only receive a share of the pay out if they had keyboard repairs done by Apple or an authorized service provider.

What is the Lawsuit All about

A settlement has been reached with Apple Inc. (“Apple”) in a class action law lawsuit alleging that certain MacBook laptops sold between 2015-2019 were equipped with defective butterfly keyboards that can result in characters repeating unexpectedly; letters or characters not appearing; and/or the keys feeling “sticky” or not responding in a consistent manner.

Apple is however denying the allegations made in the lawsuit, they deny that any Macbook was defective so the proposed settlement to resolve this case is not an admission of guilt or wrongdoing of any kind by Apple.

How to know if you are in the settlement class

You are included in this Settlement as a Settlement Class Member If you are in the United States and purchased, other than for resale, an Apple MacBook, MacBook Air, or MacBook Pro laptop between 2015 and 2019 that was equipped with a butterfly keyboard mechanism. The list of models covered by the Settlement are referred to as the “Class Computers.”

“The Settlement provides for a $50 million fund for payments to Settlement Class Members who had the “Butterfly” keyboard on their MacBook laptop repaired. The two repair procedures covered by the Settlement are: (1) a Topcase Replacement, which involves replacing the entire keyboard module; and (2) a Keycap Replacement, which involves replacement of one or more keycaps. If Apple’s records reflect you received two Topcase Replacements, you are a Group 1 Settlement Class Member. If you received a single Topcase Replacement or one or more Keycap Replacements, and you declare that the repair did not resolve your keyboard issues, you are a Group 2 or Group 3 Settlement Class Member. The amount of the settlement payment varies depending on whether you are a Group 1, Group 2, or Group 3 Settlement Class Member. “

Unless you exclude yourself, you are automatically part of the Settlement. If you do nothing, you will not get a payment from this Settlement and you will give up the right to sue, continue to sue, or be part of another lawsuit against the Defendant related to the legal claims resolved by this Settlement.
