Apple will pay $50 million as a settlement in a lawsuit involving its butterfly keyboards.
One of the class action lawsuits filed in the US was successful. Victims will receive between $50 and $395 depending on the problems they face. Those who have had their keyboard changed at least twice, but after that it still failed over time, will get the most.
At the same time, 30% of those same 50 million will not be paid to the victims, but will be used to pay for lawyers and other expenses.
The butterfly keyboard was used by Apple in its laptops for five years: from 2015 to 2020. During this time, she has shown herself to be quite unreliable. Apple eventually acknowledged the problem and even extended warranty coverage, but that didn’t save it from at least three class-action lawsuits in the US alone.
Apple, Samsung, Dell and HP exhaled: India, under US pressure, changed its mind about banning the import of laptops
India will defer license requirements for importing laptops and tablets, two government officials said. Industry and the US government have previously complained about the move, which could hit Apple, Samsung and other companies.
The plan will be delayed for a year, after which the government will consider introducing a licensing regime, one of the officials, who requested anonymity, told Reuters.
The licensing regime, announced abruptly on August 3, was aimed at “ensuring trusted equipment and systems” enter India, reduce dependence on imports, boost local manufacturing and partially address the country’s trade imbalance with China. But due to industry objections, the original plan was quickly delayed by about three months.
Last month, US trade chief Katherine Tai expressed India’s concerns about the move, which would also affect companies such as Dell and HP. India’s Ministry of Electronics is now proposing to simplify the import registration process, which is set to begin in November.
The new “import management system” will require companies to obtain “certificates of registration” to import laptops, tablets and personal computers, instead of the licenses previously proposed by the August 3 order.
India’s electronics imports, including laptops, tablets and personal computers, totaled $19.7 billion between April and June, up 6.25% year-on-year.

Microsoft’s budget laptop now starts at $800. Surface Laptop Go 3 is better than previous generations, but has become very expensive
In addition to the unusual and very expensive Surface Laptop Studio 2, Microsoft also introduced the more affordable Surface Laptop Go 3.
The new product retains a number of features of its predecessor, including compactness and lightness, but at the same time has become much more expensive. If the first and second generation Surface Laptop Go started at $550 and $500, respectively, then the Surface Laptop Go 3 is asking for at least $800.
