  • Apple Inc. (AAPL) Slapped With Lawsuit Alleging Defective Keyboards

Consumers have reported that Apple's new keyboard has resulted in sticky and unresponsive keys, which interfere with a user's ability to type.

The class action is being spearheaded by the law firm Girard Gibbs which notes on its website that it's now investigating complaints that the keyboard on Apple's 2016 MacBook Pro design is defective. Both plaintiffs experienced key failures a short time after purchasing them, and allege that Apple knew of the problem, but continued to use them in future models of their laptops. The keyboard defect compromises the MacBook's core functionality. The suit alleges that the keyboards are defective and that "thousands" of consumers have been impacted by the problem. In addition, an open petition on Change.org has gathered over 24,000 signatures in a call to hold Apple accountable for these defects.

Of all the iPads Apple has to offer now, the main iPad would be the iPad Pro since it comes with tons of new tech and features but of course, it does not come cheap as well.

According to the proposed class, "all persons within the United States who purchased, other than for resale, a model year 2015 or later Apple MacBook, or a model year 2016 or later MacBook Pro laptop, equipped with a "butterfly" keyboard" are invited to the party.
