MacBook Pro 2016 hits the market with a big surprise when it arrives with Touch Bar. However, some users encounter issues with their MacBook Pro and Apple is issuing replacement due to this problem.

MacRumors reported that a number of MacBook Pro Touch Bar users claim to have experienced keyboard issues. Some of the problems are character repetition, double clicks, delayed or no response, "clicking sounds," non-uniform feel and outright zero functionality.

"My 2016 15" MacBook Pro arrived yesterday (as one of the first). 63 of the 64 keys work fine. But the i-key most of the time types the letter twice," one user wrote. "I suggest you test out your keyboard thoroughly."

The MacBook Pro 2016 owner adds that it is easy to think that the keyboard works with auto-correct. However, his password contains the letter "I" that types twice. The struggle causes him to be super frustrated as he can't get his password right. Due to this, the user thinks that Apple adds Touch ID, so its users will not need the keyboard for passwords.

The good thing about the Cupertino-based tech giant is that they are offering repair and replacement for the affected MacBook Pro users. Apple wants to address hardware problems related to skipping keys and more.

However, replacing the keyboard may not be easy. The process will take multiple days. According to customers who seek for a replacement, Apple replaces it with non-Touch Bar as they send MacBook Pro Touch Bar for repair.

Meanwhile, per Digit, MacBook Pro 2016 with Touch Bar is now available in India. The 13-inch laptop is up for grab for only Rs 1,55,900 while the 15-inch is priced at Rs 2,05,900 up to 2,41,900.
