"Apple has determined that a small percentage of the keyboards in certain MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro models may exhibit one or more of the following behaviors:
- Letters or characters repeat unexpectedly.
- Letters or characters do not appear.
- Key(s) feel "sticky" or do not respond in a consistent manner."
Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider will service eligible MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro keyboards, free of charge. The type of service will be determined after the keyboard is examined and may involve the replacement of one or more keys or the whole keyboard...
If you believe your Mac notebook was affected by this issue, and you paid to have your keyboard repaired, you can contact Apple about a refund."
List of "Eligible Models" includes 2015-2017 Retina 12" MacBooks, 2018 Retina 13" MacBook Air, specific 2016-2019 MacBook Pros. See service program page for more details.
"Apple updated MacBook Pro with faster 8th- and 9th- generation Intel Core processors, bringing eight cores to MacBook Pro for the first time. MacBook Pro now delivers two times faster performance than a quad-core MacBook Pro and 40 percent more performance than a 6-core MacBook Pro, making it the fastest Mac notebook ever...
The 15-inch MacBook Pro now features faster 6- and 8-core Intel Core processors, delivering Turbo Boost speeds up to 5.0 GHz, while the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar features faster quad-core processors with Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.7 GHz."
More details on the MacBook Pro product page and tech specs page.
(I wonder how long they can run full bore without thermal throttling.)
Although not mentioned in the press release (or the product page), reports say there's been a material change to the butterfly keyboard to hopefully address problems in the past. (Reference latest Keyboard Service program above.)
