Apple has announced it's fixing some faulty MacBook keyboards on the house.
After three years of backlash and multiple lawsuits over issues with its butterfly switch keyboard, Apple finally seems to have given in.
Users with newer MacBook and MacBook Pro models complained about unresponsive or sticky keys and letters or characters that would repeat unexpectedly when typing.
In 2015, Apple switched from the traditional scissor mechanism to a butterfly switch keyboard that they built on its 12 inch Retina MacBook.
This allow the keys to lie nearly flush on the computer.
Giving the new models a slimmer form factor.
Now the company had originally suggested cleaning the keyboard of bottle of compressed air as a potential solution.
But that didn't seem to fix the problem and a proper repair at the store could cost nearly $700, if the device was not under warranty.
Apple published the news about the free repairs on friday stating that the type of service will be determined after the keyboard is examined and may involve the replacement of one or more keys or the whole keyboard of eligible models with the butterfly keyboard These include all laptops released from Apple since 2015.
User with affected devices can set up a repair appointment at the store or mail it in.
And those who've have already paid for repairs can contact Apple for a refund.
