Apple has been dealing manufacturing issues with some of its most popular revamped products. Apple has admitted there was a manufacturing defect with the battery in some iPhone 5S smartphones. That defect meant that the batteries can take longer to charge and didn’t last as long once a full charge was achieved.
Apple has now admitted that there is an issue on the new 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro notebook. Apple says that it is aware of the keyboard and trackpad issue on the new 13-inch notebook computers and is currently working on a fix. A number of users have complained of that both the keyboard and the trackpad of the new notebooks will freeze randomly, requiring a reboot to fix. There is currently a huge thread over at the Apple Support Communities that details the problem.
For its part, Apple wrote, “Apple is aware of rare circumstances where the built-in keyboard and Multi-Touch trackpad may become unresponsive on 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display (Late 2013) computers and is working on an update to resolve this behavior.”
Apple is also suggesting a way to help users try and resolve the input issue until the official fix lands. Apple says that MacBook Pro users who encounter the input issue should try putting the computer to sleep by closing the computer display for about a minute before opening the display up again to see if the machine resumes normal functionality.
