The Butterfly Keyboard

In 2015, Apple unveiled a new “butterfly” keyboard on its MacBook laptops. The butterfly keyboard enabled Apple to make their laptops thinner. Apple promotes the butterfly keyboards as more responsive than traditional laptop keyboards.

The Keyboard Defect

Thousands of consumers have reported that Apple’s new keyboard has resulted in sticky and unresponsive keys, which interfere with a user’s ability to type.  Our lawsuit alleges that Apple’s butterfly keyboard is produced and assembled in such a way that when minimal amounts of dust or debris accumulate under or around a key, keystrokes fail to register correctly. 

Because typing is the primary purpose of laptops, over time, consumers have become more and more frustrated with the keyboard defect. In early May 2018, Apple customers started a petition requesting that Apple institute a recall of its defective laptops, noting “Apple’s relative silence on this issue.”  The petition has amassed nearly 34,000 signatures.
