How do I improve the longevity of my keyboard?

Hey, I recently purchased a refurbished 2017 15" MacBook Pro with the notorious butterfly keyboard because I wanted a recent machine that will last me 2-4 years. It does have a 2 year warranty but I still wanna ask, what can I do to improve the longevity of my keyboard? Btw I really love how tactile and clicky it is 😄.

You could use an external keyboard. At home or where convenient, less wear, longer life. The usual advice is keep liquids away, keep it clean (canned air) It seems these keyboards break at the drop of a crumb, so keep your snacks away... you could go so far as to apply a silicone keycover but that would alter the feel somewhat. Just hope it breaks before the warranty is up if it's going to break,. or it will cost upwards of $700 to fix it...

True, also won't thw the keyboard cover damage my display in any way? I've seen a lot of posts on reddit, where users had cracked screens because they used keyboard or webcam cover.


pavol porubsky I ll do some looking and see if I can turn up any options... like the super thin covers for macs here

Me personally I wouldn’t worry about it too much as some machines go on to live long lives and apple has a repair programme for it if you device is a certain age

The butterfly keyboard issue was there but it isn’t as common a people think as if you look for it online your going to see every one who has ever had it and posted it

It’s like asking the internet who has ever punctured a new Audis tire,your going to have quite a few but that doesn’t mean don’t enjoy the device

My advise would be make sure you don’t get it too dirty and don’t use it in extremely dusty areas

Hopefully this answers your question

Well apple has a replacement program but only for 4 years after purchase. I wouldn't buy one without warranty. But thank you very much, I'll be using it with my docking station and keyboard. :)


Your welcome!



Pavol Porubský & @hellomacos - Sadly the free repair program is coming to an end ;-{

Keyboard Service Program for MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro

"The program covers eligible MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro models for 4 years after the first retail sale of the unit."

A system which was sold by Apple older than 2019 is now no longer covered under the program. A system sold by a 3rd party as refurbished/used might offer their own warranty but I doubt they would replace the keyboard.


Thanks for the information Dan!

It’s really a shame how apple won’t replace keyboards that are know to have some form of issue

In my opinion they should extend the program but I don’t see them doing that
