    My 2016 13" Macbook Pro has started presenting key repeating issues after a couple of months using it.

    It's the letter A, which happens to be my favorite and most used letter. It will randomly repeat when pressing (aa instead of a) or not input at all.

    I have done what many others suggested: removed the key, cleaning underneath, pressing hard and massaging it. Doesn't seem to actually solve it, as the issue is random and persists.

    Did Apple ever produce a statement recognizing this issue? Are there known fixes? I would gladly use a software that monitors keyboard input and filters specific keys for repeat, if such a thing exists.

    This happened to me when I first got the computer (the P key) but it went away in a month or so.

    AFAIK Apple hasn’t publicly aknowledged the issue but if you go to the Apple Store they will add the slight modification they made in the 2017 model when they fix it. They added spacers or something.

    I have just got my second top case changed out due to B key repeating. First time it appeared to me was in March, and now it happened again in August.

    I have the B key repeating problem before, Apple replaced the top casing. Now it happened again after about a year. Errr... I'm out of warranty now...
