FINALLY fix the MacBook Pro's keyboard dust issues

Apple appears to finally be issuing a fix for the MacBook Pro's pesky keyboard problem.

Last week, the iPhone maker released updated 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro models that sport new keyboards, but Apple said they'd only be quieter than previous models. 

Now, leaked documents show Apple has resolved the issue. 

"Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider will examine the customer's device to verify eligibility and then perform the service free of charge," the company said. "Service may involve the replacement of one or more keys or the whole keyboard."

Apple added that customers who've already paid for a repair related to the service program can contact the company to get a refund for the service cost. 


A document sent by the company to Apple Authorized Service Providers describes a membrane that 'prevents debris from entering the butterfly mechanism,' according to MacRumors, which obtained the files. 

'The keyboard has a membrane under the keycaps to prevent debris from entering the butterfly mechanism,' the document states. 

'The procedure for the space bar replacement has also changed from the previous model.
