Some of the MacBook Pro and MacBook owners have experienced problems with the keyboard.

Recent models of the MacBook and MacBook Pro have been plagued with hardware issues since 2015 (MacBook) and 2016 (MacBook Pro). While the main complaint about the MacBook relates to the keyboard, an issue shared with the MacBook Pro, MacBook Pro owners are also contending with a problem causing both the SSD and logic board to require replacement, an issue that can cause data loss or drive failure, an issue with the Thunderbolt port, and speaker issues – which are also appearing on the 2018 MacBook Pro according to reports.

The most issue is the keyboard is stops working, both on MacBoo and MacBook Pro. As of the end of June 2018 Apple has admitted that there is a problem with the current keyboard design on the MacBook and MacBook Pro and is offering free repairs to customers who have been affected.

Apple maintains that the new keyboard design is purely to quieten the keys, but it looks like this new design will also avoid the problems that have plagued the past few generations of keyboards with the ‘butterfly’ design.

Apple itself previously recommended using compressed air to blow the dust from under the affected key. But this is not the solution for fixing the keyboard problem, due to it was impossible to remove the dust without removing the entire keyboard. It is not possible to take individual keys out to clean the keyboard as it used to be with older models. And it’s not just the keyboard that must be removed but also the battery, frame and ports – a repair that can only be performed by an Apple service professional.

iPhone 8, X, XS and XR are not waterproof !

It’s not like an Apple watch that you can wearing it and do water sports, like swimming, snorkeling, surfing, or taking part in other types of water activities. The iPhone models are not waterproof, they are however water resistant (to a degree).

With an IP rating of IP68, Apple designed the iPhone XS to be waterproof in situations where it’s submerged no deeper than 2 meters or about 6 feet in water for 30 minutes or less.

The iPhone XR and the original X are rated IP67 under IEC standard 60529 much like the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus models when it comes to water resistance.

Examining the tech specs for these iPhone models, you find a small footnote that calls out the details of this.

As per Apple’s disclaimer via the footnote on the new iPhone XS Technical Specifications page:

iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are splash, water, and dust resistant and were tested under controlled laboratory conditions with a rating of IP68 under IEC standard 60529 (maximum depth of 2 meters up to 30 minutes). Splash, water, and dust resistance are not permanent conditions and resistance might decrease as a result of normal wear. Do not attempt to charge a wet iPhone; refer to the user guide for cleaning and drying instructions. Liquid damage not covered under warranty.

 

This means that your iPhone XS or iPhone XR/X/8 will not get damaged if it is exposed to a little rain splash while you are on the run.

Likewise, if you accidentally dropped it in the toilet or splashed some beer on it, you will be ok. Your iPhone will not be permanently damaged.

 

Remember Apple iPhones are Water-Resistant but not Waterproof!!
