Apple has discovered issues with their Smart Keyboard iPad accessory, including unresponsive keys, stuck keys, and problems connecting to the iPad through the Smart Connector. As a result, Apple is extending the standard one-year warranty to three years and refunding anybody who has already paid out of pocket to fix one of the aforementioned issues.

This news comes from a leaked internal memo being sent to Apple stores and authorized repair providers. The issues affect both the 12.9 and 9.7-inch versions of the keyboards, which retail for $150 and $170, respectively.

This isn’t new for Apple, or for most companies. When a product is discovered to have a defect, it’s only fair to fix that product for free. I would say that lifetime warranties are in order if you are actually selling a defective product, but I also don’t have the slightest idea of how business works.

Like, not even the slightest idea.
