Apple has faced some pointed criticism over the butterfly switch keyboards on the 12-inch MacBook and current-generation MacBook Pro.
To that end, users Kyle Barbaro and Zixua Rao have filed a class action lawsuit against Apple accusing the company of knowingly selling MacBooks with faulty keyboards.

Barbaro and Rao assert that Apple must have known the keyboards were “defective” by the time they reached the public, since complaints started mounting soon after the original 12-inch MacBook launched in 2015.
They also accuse Apple of suggesting “self-help remedies” (such as blasting the keyboard with compressed air) that it supposedly knows won’t work, and noted that repairs haven’t offered permanent solutions.
The lawsuit asks for both damages and refunds for anyone who has paid to replace their MacBook’s keyboard.
