Replace Your MacBook Keyboard for Free and Also Get a New Battery

Did you know you can replace your MacBook keyboard for free? Did you know it also comes with a replacement battery? Check it out.

Is your MacBook keyboard not working as expected? Are some keys sticking or not working at all? You’re laptop probably has a pesky butterfly keyboard inside. Luckily, there’s a hardware fix that will cost you nothing. Better still, because of how Apple has designed its MacBooks, other hardware gets replaced simultaneously. Here’s how to replace your MacBook keyboard through an Apple service program for MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro.

What’s the Issue?

Beginning in mid-2020, I began noticing problems with the keyboard on my 2018 MacBook Pro. Gradually, these hiccups took different forms from letters and characters repeating unexpectedly or not appearing while typing. The word “sticky” came to mind when describing the problem.

Working in technology, I knew immediately what was causing these typing problems: the MacBook Pro’s butterfly keyboard.

Butterfly Keyboard

First introduced with the 12-inch MacBook in early 2015, the butterfly keyboard replaced the previous models’ traditional scissor mechanism. Built from a single assembly supported by a stainless-steel dome switch, this butterfly mechanism was supposed to bring more stability and accuracy to typing, according to Apple’s Phil Schiller.

Of the butterfly mechanism, he explained during the reveal, “And that all adds up to a key that is much more precise and accurate. In fact, it’s four times more stable than that scissor mechanism … Yet it is 40% thinner, allowing us to make a thinner keyboard.”

The butterfly mechanism was found in every Apple laptop produced between 2015 and much of 2019. Though minor design changes were made throughout, the central problem (sticky keys) remained and were experienced by many users. Though Apple never admitted any wrong, it did implement a keyboard service program for those affected. And, beginning with the 2019 16-inch MacBook Pro, a familiar scissor mechanism returned on keyboards on new laptops with the butterfly keyboard no more. The new keyboard is nearly identical to Apple’s wireless Magic Keyboard and provides more travel than the discontinued mechanism.

Replace Your MacBook Keyboard Service Program

At the time of this writing, Apple’s Keyboard Service Program covers the following laptops:

  • MacBook (Retina, 12-­inch, Early 2015)
  • MacBook (Retina, 12­-inch, Early 2016)
  • MacBook (Retina, 12-­inch, 2017)
  • MacBook Air (Retina, 13-inch, 2018)
  • MacBook Air (Retina, 13-inch, 2019)
  • MacBook Pro (13­-inch, 2016, Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
  • MacBook Pro (13-­inch, 2017, Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2019, Two Thunderbolt 3 ports)
  • MacBook Pro (13-­inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
  • MacBook Pro (13-­inch, 2017, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
  • MacBook Pro (15-­inch, 2016)
  • MacBook Pro (15-­inch, 2017)
  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2018, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
  • MacBook Pro (15-­inch, 2018)
  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2019, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
  • MacBook Pro (15-­inch, 2019)

To determine whether your laptop qualifies, choose the Apple menu at the top left of your device. From there, select About This Mac to see which MacBook you own.

The Process

There are three ways to get a keyboard replacement. You can:

  • Find an Apple Authorized Service Provider.
  • Make an appointment at an Apple Retail Store.
  • Mail-in your device to the Apple Repair Center.

Typically when I have a hardware problem with an Apple product, I head to the nearest retail store. Unfortunately, that wasn’t an option for me because of COVID-19 restrictions in place at the time. Instead, in early January, I communicated with Apple Support online. After quick questions and answers back and forth through text, the Apple representative determined that my laptop qualified for the program. Overnight, they send me a box to ship my laptop for repair. The box, designed to protect your investment during transport, included a next-day return label, which was definitely a nice touch.

The Apple representative said the turn-around time for keyboard replacements usually took 1-2 business days. Even with the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, I found this to be the case. As part of the process, Apple sends out emails indicating when work begins and ends on the laptop. In my case, the emails were separated by only a few hours.

Beginning to end, the laptop was out of my possession for three days, which I found impressive, given it traveled between Pennsylvania and Texas.

More Than the Keyboard

The way Apple has designed most of its products in recent years has made it nearly impossible to do at-home repairs. In this case, the MacBook’s complicated assembly actually benefits users who take advance of the keyboard service program.

When Apple replaces the keyboard on your MacBook, it must also replace the battery, aluminum top case, and trackpad. As someone who uses his laptop for 10-12 hours per day, I appreciated seeing a zero cycle battery count. My machine even felt snapper because of it!

The Fine Print

Apple’s Keyboard Service Program for MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro really works well. However, it does contain some language that’s important to know. First, Apple notes, “If your MacBook, MacBook Air, or MacBook Pro has any damage which impairs the service, that issue will need to be repaired first. In some cases, there may be a cost associated with the repair.”

Second, the program only covers eligible MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro models for four years after the unit’s first retail sale.

Replace Your MacBook Keyboard: My Advice

Without a service program or AppleCare+ plan, it’s costly to replace Apple products’ hardware. In this case, Apple’s offering free service. If you have one of the laptops mentioned above and detect even minor problems with its keyboard, contact Apple Support. Please do it now before the program runs its course. Otherwise, those sticky keys could cost you a lot of money.

Everything is clear and fast. Well, the price is more than reasonable.

Dmitry Styrov

Master Anton performed diagnostics as soon as possible and identified a problem with 7 IPhone! Within 2 hours, all damaged/faulty parts were replaced! The phone functions, and a 90-day repair guarantee insures! The possibility of paying by card was a pleasant surprise! Reception / repair point within walking distance from Babushkinskaya metro station! I recommend!


Applied twice, and twice for alteration after the crooked “masters”. Attention to the client and the work done on 5+ struck. I recommend and will be back!

Great service!!!! Master Vlad is a professional in his field. He did everything quickly and efficiently. Many thanks to the company Pedant, represented by the master Vlad, for the work!

Ivanenkov Roman

I can not call this service good …. This is too pale a word. Service on Domodedovo – SUPER DELICIOUS!!! Master Igor is simply a magician and wizard! Clearly, literally in a minute made an assumption about the malfunction. Focused on price. I did not have time to get home, after putting the phone in for repair, as I received a message about the successful completion of the repair. The cause of the malfunction and the cost of the repair were fully consistent with those declared at the time of delivery for repair. I am not a young enthusiastic girl, moreover, I myself am a serviceman in another area, I can objectively assess the quality of services. I am delighted. Separate respect and respect to Igor. The man knows his business.

Alina Satyukova

The first thing I want to say is – thank you for the prompt resolution of my issue and for the desire of the guys to help as much as possible. Repaired my favorite Samsung. I was walking from a nearby bar in the morning and broke my phone. She raised her head in tears and saw a sign across the road. In the afternoon I was already there and the next day I took my phone as new. There were different options for the price / quality of the display, but the guys advised exactly the original – that is, exactly the same as what I had. It also seems to me that the manager liked me and he made me some kind of display protection as a gift – it is practically invisible, but after that, my daughter dropped the phone, I picked it up with bated breath and the display turned out to be alive. \


The speaker on the phone began to work poorly, I can hear someone well during a conversation, some are simply disgusting. I thought about changing my phone, but I went to your center on Novoslobodskaya. In 2 minutes they cleaned the speaker and everything was fine. Was very pleasantly surprised. Thank you! Keep it up!


The phone was fixed quickly at a low cost. Very satisfied, thank you very much.

Viktor Petrovich

I express my deep gratitude to the Service! And, personally, master Alexei! Worked great and solved my problem! Thank you! Repaired two Samsung smartphones.


I liked the interior of the office. The employees are literate. They solve all issues on the gadget. They made repairs within an hour. I liked the guarantee: I have 3 months. So I recommend it. The price, by the way, is sane.


Many thanks to the service at Novoslobodskaya metro station! Applied on 04/24/2022. Everything is made for you! Honest, fast, high quality with a guarantee!


Thank you very much for excellent service. Satisfied with the repair. Everything is prompt and friendly.


Thank you very much service center. Convenient work schedule. You can sign up through social networks. They give a guarantee, which is the most important thing when repairing a phone. The phone broke down, the master arrived at the appointed time and place. He assessed the damage and took all measures to eliminate the cause of the failure. The owner is polite and apparently knowledgeable. The time of his work took no more than 20 minutes.


I turned today with a banal problem for a specialist, which I am not) The reaction to the appeal is instant, so to speak, “giving up everything.”
Received my smartphone back serviceable in just 5 minutes.
Master in one word! Thank you.
I recommend, credit!


Good afternoon I recommend the service on Mayakovskaya. Professional, responsive and caring employees who are ready to help the “blonde with a smartphone”. They set up, updated and explained in detail what’s what, for which they deserve a big human thanks!


Great service, courteous and efficient staff. No complaints, everything is great.


After the fall, the phone started to turn off constantly, I came to this service, the specialist quickly found the problem, did everything quickly and efficiently, for which I am very grateful to him. They made a big discount))) in general, I recommend the service, we can’t find better specialists in the city!!!


I want to express my gratitude to the employee Timofey for the high-quality and fast work. Good customers to you!


Many thanks to Rostislav for the quickly completed work, for honesty and quality. We did not expect that everything would be done so quickly and they would not even take the money.


Good afternoon Thank you very much for the fast and high-quality work on replacing the display on the iphone and the protective glass as a gift, it’s very nice, now my phone is like new.


The service is really good, help is timely, good service, everything was explained and told, a small minus that they do not fit into the declared 90 minutes, but still they did everything at the highest level. I will definitely use again and recommend to everyone. The prices justify themselves and the efforts of the staff. Everything is quite popular and accessible.


in just a few minutes again came to life in my phone!!!!
thank you, young man! You are very attentive and sensible in your business!!!
I recommend in the Arena shopping center !!!!


Good day everyone! Back in winter, I turned to this service with a serious problem of my then new Xiaomi Redmi-8 (six months from the date of purchase). The screen was buggy in my mobile, and in such a way that some operations were performed on their own and could not be controlled. There were even cases when, having entered the Sberbank Online application, a transfer could be automatically made. Typing any text in SMS became impossible: it turned out some kind of ABRACADABRA … In short, the phone began to create problems for me in everything. And I had to turn to specialists. I found the address on the internet. From a detailed conversation with the master, I immediately realized that nothing would be imposed on me here, so I trusted him. I was offered several options for solving the problem with a detailed description of the costs (the prices were the same as on the website). I chose to replace the screen… And I didn’t regret it! The very next day when everything was done. my problems disappeared as if they never existed… RESPECT and RESPECT!!! I recommend!


Fortunately, I rarely use smartphone repair services, but …. everything happens for the first time. And the first positive experience in this business is very important. The first time I came with the fact that the phone was not charging from charging. In 2 minutes!!! the master cleaned the connector on the phone and did not charge a penny for it. shock. On the radio market, they would probably say that you got a guy – there is a lot of work with the replacement of a half-phone. Therefore, the choice of the center for the second time (drowned an iPhone in the pool) was obvious, although driving from Odintsovo to the center of Moscow is still a pleasure. And everything is great again. And it’s not just the cost of an old iPhone, but the fact that I really don’t like the process of transferring data to a new one. In general, quickly, efficiently and for a reasonable price. And many thanks to Lydia Konovalova for constantly keeping me informed about the stages of the repair. It’s so nice when such nice people help you solve your temporary life troubles.
So far everything is fine with the phone. I hope for a long time. Thanks guys.


Good afternoon Once again I turned to your service center and was once again satisfied. Parts are always in stock, repairs take a minimum of time, you will not have time to drink coffee before everything is ready. Great artists, thank you! I advise everyone!


Competent and polite staff, quality repairs! The best place in town, I recommend it to everyone!

Nikolai Yurievich Polyansky

Very nice team, prices do not bite) Masters of their craft! I advise everyone to service

Ekaterina Romanova

I am very glad that I got to them


Very polite staff, everything is fast and efficient, I was satisfied with the services provided


We contacted the service on Alekseevskaya repeatedly, always quickly, efficiently, kindly. I recommend to everyone


I really liked the quality of service in this service center. In a couple of minutes they fixed the problem with charging the phone, free of charge, politely and efficiently. I recommend this center.


Came in to replace the charging port. The young man looked and just cleaned it. It took less than 5 minutes. They didn’t take the money. Highly recommend


I broke my phone badly, before going to the salon I consulted on the phone about prices and opening hours, I really liked the chat, politeness and quick response to any questions. The repair itself took less than the promised time. On the website and in the salon it is written that as a gift a free protective glass, unfortunately, the glass was not delivered to me, because it was not available, but they made cleaning the phone a bonus. Most of all, I was surprised by the papers that I signed, in the previous salon, in which I had already repaired another phone, there were no guarantees and contracts, I really liked the responsibility of the salon!
The prices are average but the quality of the work is amazing!
I can safely recommend this salon0003

I addressed a problem on the iPhone 7, the phone did not charge, everything was explained and told on the spot, a very competent employee Alexander, answered all questions, offered alternative options, did his job efficiently and quickly, I will definitely contact you again

MacBook keyboard replacement in Moscow

How the Macbook keyboard (Air and Pro) works

Design differences are: mounting method, surface, presence or absence of backlighting, function keys, cable location, color.

Notebook keys for the European market and the US are also different. So, the Enter key (Enter), for the Euromarket, “G” is shaped, and for USA, it is rectangular.

Buttons fitted with third generation butterfly locks for up and down movement. Under the keys are membranes made of rubber that return the key to its original position after being pressed.

Next, there are transparent films with contacts that close when pressed, sending a signal about the action taken. All at the same time very simple and not quite.

For what reasons do you need to replace the keyboard on a macbook

The keyboard very rarely fails, due to marriage it is mostly negligence and accident. Let’s look at the main factors of failure.

According to statistics, to replace the MacBook keyboard, the price of which is indicated above, is required as a result of an accident, and more specifically: – Ingress of liquid, for example, tea, coffee, beer. After flooding, the laptop starts to behave incorrectly. The buttons begin to stick, due to sugar, liquid that has entered, crunch or not work. It will also cause freezes, unexpected shutdowns and reboots.

You can try to save money and clean it or wipe it with a damp cloth, but the success of such a procedure is extremely doubtful, because the brush and cloth will not get to the contacts and the backlight, which can also go out and not turn on again. It is impossible to guarantee a 100% result after such procedures.

Further, the second place is awarded to the force impact. It includes torn and broken buttons. In these cases, they remain operational, but there are no keys, fastening mechanisms, rubber membranes. The causes of such losses are children and animals. Very rarely, malfunctions are caused by the fall of some objects on the laptop.

The third and rarest cause is a break in the board-to-board cable that attaches to and from the Touchpad and goes to the motherboard. A serious blow knocks out the train.

Symptoms of failure are simple. Keyboard and TouchPad MacBook stops responding or functions incorrectly. Here, most likely, a macbook keyboard replacement will be required, this only applies to new models with a Retina display.

What to do if your MacBook keyboard or touchpad stops working after getting wet

First of all, don’t panic! If moisture enters the MacBook, turn it off immediately before the moisture causes a short circuit in the circuits. Do not try to dry your MacBook in rice or with a hair dryer. Moisture does not evaporate without a trace, it leaves oxides on the contacts, and if it was a drink, for example, juice, also sugar.

Rice won’t help, it’s a myth, but blow-drying will just burn the buttons. Even if you disassemble the laptop, you run the risk of damaging the cables or microchips of the motherboard, and this is completely different money.

In such a situation, you need to follow the instructions that always work, 100%

  • Turn off the MacBook in an emergency. (Press the Power button)
  • We are looking for a box, bag, backpack or package and put the laptop in it.
  • We go to the site and come to the nearest service to you. (Addresses of services on the page – Contacts) with a discount – 7%, if you leave a request on the site or the master will come to you, to your home within the capital.
  • We are waiting for a decision of a free check, we repair and get a working device.

How is the replacement of the keyboard on a Mac in a service center

First, experts conduct free MacBook diagnostics to identify hidden faults that are not visible to the naked eye. Next, the laptop is disassembled.

On older laptops, like the MacBook Pro, it is screwed onto the Top Case. The old clave is unscrewed and a new one is installed. The MacBook is assembled, tested and issued to the client, with a 6-month warranty.

On models from year 12, MacBook Air and Pro Retina, it is different. It is screwed to the TopCase around the perimeter, and riveted in the middle with rivets. In this case, the extreme screws are unscrewed and the rivets are removed. We remove the faulty clave, change it to a new one and fasten it back.
