First the very bottom of the screen went out so I could not hit the space-bar on the keyboard, or change to the number/character screen. Then it got worse a few days later, now I cannot hit any of the main function button,” a user is reported to have said in Apple’s support forums.
Apple, according to the reports, exchanges the faulty parts with no questions asked. On the other hand, Apple is known for the devices that have no problems.
