The Macbook Keyboard Litigation Settlement Website
What is this settlement 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 denies all of the allegations made in the lawsuit, denies that any MacBooks are defective, and denies that Apple did anything improper or unlawful. Apple asserts numerous defenses to the claims in this case. The proposed settlement to resolve this case is not an admission of guilt or wrongdoing of any kind by Apple.
Who is included in the Class?
The Settlement Class includes all persons and entities in the United States who 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.
