Apple butterfly keyboard settlement

From The Verge:

Apple has agreed to pay out $50 million to settle a class action lawsuit that said the company knew about flaws with the butterfly keyboard switches it built into several MacBook models (via Reuters).

The butterfly keyboard is one of the worst design decisions Apple has ever made; it has been the bane of our Macbooks for several years. We've had to make use of the free replacement. We don't live in a state that will benefit from the settlement, but it's good some people will.

Apple Business Essentials
