Apple Extends Keyboard Service Program to Newer MacBook Pro, MacBook Air Models

Share:

Starting today, all MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro models equipped with any generation of butterfly mechanism keyboard are eligible for Apple’s Keyboard Service Program. The 2018 MacBook Air, 2018 MacBook Pro, as well as the latest 2019 MacBook Pro models now also qualify for free repairs (via MacRumors).

While the new keyboard design on the 2019 MacBook Pro is still classified as “third generation” butterfly mechanism keyboard like the 2018 MacBook Pro and 2018 MacBook Air, Apple says it has changed the material in the keyboard’s butterfly mechanism this year to “substantially reduce problems that some users have seen.”

Owners of the 2018 MacBook Pro and 2018 MacBook Air will have their keyboards replaced with ones that have the new materials during the repair.
