They’ve done it!
Apple has launched an official repair program for keyboards on 2015-2017 MacBooks and 2016-2017 Mac Book Pros. In my opinion, this is one step short of a recall.
I was recently asked by a client if they should get a new Mac laptop. I said, try to hold out until October if you can. Apple has not refreshed their laptop lineup in 2018. They would be tone deaf to the market if they don’t do it by the end of the year. There are alternatives. Some are switching to higher end Windows laptops. The 2017 Mac Book Air (which doesn’t suffer from the same problems) is still available, despite it sporting a 2010 design and 2015 parts.
