Apple Achieves $50M Settlement Over Popular Gadget – Find Out If You’re Owed Money

MACBOOK owners could face payout in hundreds of hundreds after Apple agrees to settle lawsuit $50m / £42m.

Angry customers claim the tech giant knew the butterfly keyboard on its MacBook laptops could go wrong — and believe Apple has kept quiet about it.

The problem affects the MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.

Keys reportedly became sticky and unresponsive.

And even tiny dust particles would make typing difficult, users claim.

People weren’t happy with Apple’s service program either, as they seemed to have been offered replacement keyboards that were plagued by the same issues.

It’s estimated that the maximum payout for anyone who has had to replace more than one keyboard could be $395/£330.

Anyone who only did it once could get around $125/£104, while those who just had to change keycaps would get $50/£42.

Customers are also entitled to four years of free keyboard repairs after purchase.

But the settlement has yet to be approved by a judge.

And only certain customers will be eligible if all goes ahead.

First off, it only applies to people who bought a MacBook, MacBook Air, or most MacBook Pro models between 2015 and 2019.

And since the case was heard in federal court in San Jose, California, it means only people who live in certain locations will be able to get some money.

Therefore, only those in California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, New York and Washington are eligible.

Apple denies any wrongdoing in agreeing to a settlement.
