It’s open learning that Apple added silicone membrane to its third-generation MacBook butterfly keyboards to keep dust from getting in, yet how well does that work, truly? Not really as much as Apple might want.
Because of a Wall Street Journal piece featuring progressing reports of issues, an Apple spokesman said the company was aware of a “small number of users” whose butterfly keyboards were having issues, and that it was “sorry” for the problems. It didn’t say this was a systemic flaw, however — it contended that the “vast majority” of MacBook Air and Pro users were just fine, and that customers should contact support if there’s trouble.
Organizations like iFixit and Simple Mac may oppose this idea. They trust the butterfly keyboards (which allows for very thin yet stable keys) is naturally delicate, and that even the smallest measure of dust can stick the system.
It’s likewise conceivable that frail springs render them inclined to a breakdown. And keeping in mind that any framework with a third-gen keyboard is still secured under the free warranty, it’s as yet a torment to sit tight for a fix for an apparently incessant issue this way – particularly on the off chance that you rely upon a MacBook for your work. There’s no certification Apple will establish an uncommon fix program, either.
While it’s hazy exactly what number of individuals are influenced, the issue is adequately far-reaching enough that some are calling for Apple to discard butterfly keyboards totally. They trust Apple bargained unwavering quality (also material feel) for the sake of a more slender structure, and don’t anticipate that the circumstance should improve until Apple reexamines its system.
