Apple Keyboard Replacement Program Policies: So you might have heard about the Apple Keyboard replacement,

After all the buzz on social media, and rants of tech YouTubers, Apple finally decided to face the issue or otherwise known as a ‘bug’ or manufacturing defect, which led to malfunctioning of the new butterfly keyboards on the Macbooks and Macbook Pros.
so Apple launched their replacement program called ‘Keyboard Service Program for MacBook and MacBook Pro’ on 22-06-2018

Apple’s Sticky keyboard issue

apple confronted this sticky key issue on their ‘ground-breaking’ butterfly keyboards, so decided to replace Macbooks, or really? Apple on their site, agreed to ‘fix’ the issue and not replace them, it clearly mentions that, Apple or an Apple authorized Service Provider will Service eligible Macbook and Macbook Pro keyboards free of charge! let’s think it through for a second! if I have a warantee on my Macbook wouldn’t it cover this? already?

This wasn’t apparently a ‘fix’ but a reassurance that Apple is gonna fix your keyboard if it breaks.

Apple’s Replacement Program:Eligibility

So Apple’s Replacement Program is just a fixing problem you can see if you’re eligible by checking your device in this list of Macbook’s or Macbook Pro’s below,

  1. MacBook (Retina, 12-­inch, Early 2015)
  2. MacBook (Retina, 12­-inch, Early 2016)
  3. MacBook (Retina, 12-­inch, 2017)
  4. MacBook Pro (13­-inch, 2016, Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
  5. MacBook Pro (13-­inch, 2017, Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
  6. MacBook Pro (13-­inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
  7. MacBook Pro (13-­inch, 2017, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
  8. MacBook Pro (15-­inch, 2016)
  9. MacBook Pro (15-­inch, 2017)

you can do this three ways, you can find an Apple authorized service provider or make an appointment at an Apple Retail Store, or instead mail your device to an Apple repair Center.
so basically what happens here is they will fix your keyboards for free, but here’s the catch

The Catch in Apples Replacement Program

It clearly says that this is not going to extend your warantee for the device, in their site, which is a bit unfair, because this was a manufacturing defect and not a physical damage done by the user, so at-least for the keyboard the warrantee should be extended for free!

Another catch is that this is only till four years from the date that you have bought a macbook, now what if the replaced keyboard malfunctions after four years?

What If I replaced keyboard myself paying for it

Apple did solve that problem, you can contact Apple and they would refund your money that you have spent for the replacement of the keyboard in above mentioned devices.
