  Apple Says Some Older IPhones May Not Turn On Due to Failed Part Apple Inc. on Friday said that some iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models manufactured between October 2018 and August 2019 may not turn on due to a failed part. The company offered a free repair program for users who are affected. The iPhone 6s line originally went on sale in September 2015, but was officially discontinued in September 2018 with the launch of last year’s iPhones. Still, Apple continued producing some iPhone 6s models for sale in select markets, including India.The repair program is the sixth for Apple this year, according to the company’s website.

Apple will have to face a class action lawsuit over faulty MacBook keyboards . The lawsuit covers many Apple laptops with butterfly keyboards , starting with the original 12-inch MacBook from 2015 and including MacBook Pro models produced in 2016 or later.

A new class - action lawsuit claims the company knowingly sold laptops with defective keyboards . Here’s what you need to know about the new lawsuit and how to get Apple first introduced its new butterfly-switch keyboards in 2015 with the 12-inch MacBook (the one without any regular USB ports).

Apple will have to face a class action lawsuit over faulty MacBook keyboards. Federal Judge Edward Davila has tossed out Apple's attempt to dismiss a suit accusing the company of not only hiding the fragility of MacBook butterfly keyboards, but of failing to provide an "effective fix" or full compensation for customers who paid for repairs. The suit claims that Apple violated multiple states' consumer protection laws, potentially leaving the company on the hook for many users who dealt with sticky or unresponsive keys when even a slight amount of debris slipped into their keyboards.

The lawsuit covers many Apple laptops with butterfly keyboards, starting with the original 12-inch MacBook from 2015 and including MacBook Pro models produced in 2016 or later.

That’s because, according to Gurman, it’s going to fully replace the classic 15-inch MacBook Pro in Apple’s laptop lineup. I think some people were expecting it to slot in above the existing options as a premium choice, but apparently not.

Apple has been hit with a class action lawsuit over "defective" keyboards in recent MacBook and MacBook Pro models. The lawsuit , filed in Northern California district court, alleges that the low-profile, butterfly-switch keyboards in 2015-and-later MacBook and 2016-and-later MacBook Pro models are

We've asked Apple for comment. It might face an uphill battle in court, however. While the company has never said the butterfly keyboard design was inherently flawed, it instituted repair programs for that keyboard design and even added the latest 13-inch MacBook Pro to the program the moment it became available. Also, the 16-inch MacBook Pro conspicuously reverted to scissor switches in what many see as a tacit acknowledgment that the earlier technology was too fragile. As such, there's a real chance Apple could find itself paying for its design choices well after the butterfly keyboard becomes a distant memory.
