Just like Apple doesn't give specific data, the claims made in this article are very sparse on detail, so its hard to take them seriously. I'm inclined to believe it, but people also put up with keyboard issues without complaining or trying to get it serviced -- that hurts reputation even if Apple has limited numbers on that. Also, Apple might not want to dig up previous reports and talk extensively about all the failures no matter how low the percentage.
The problem here is that people didn't like the feel of the new keyboards or the progression towards less and less responsiveness (something remedied a bit in the second butterfly iteration) and when there were reliability issues on top of that, and long delays for super expensive repairs, it was too easy to vilify the design of the keys and demand change. It didn't really matter how many there were.
But it won’t switch until it can replace every Intel processor across its entire range of machines;
Ultra portable MacBook could get big battery life increase and remain fanless potentially, long before new ARM chips were suitable to replace large desktops and there’s no good reason to wait if they can achieve a good compatibility option for current software.
False advertising in the past is not a reason to continue it. I don't care if it's hypocritical of them to call out AT&T at this point as long as it is made very clear to everyone how egregious this stunt AT&T is pulling is. They obviously can't protect consumers themselves so they invite outside regulation or at least some public lashing. Bring it and continue and embarrass AT&T. Meanwhile, there is plenty of overpromising going on about 5G everywhere else, too. I say let's keep them honest any way we can.
Also, it looks like this is not the year to buy into 5G for phones anyway, so a skeptic's eye on all the carriers is a good idea. (It's always a good idea anyway. :P )

This is what I meant when I mentioned that Microsoft was helping to solve the boot camp issue. Theoretically, Window 10 on ARM would work for the desperate one or two occasional work apps some Mac users need, at least.
Would have been a good time to offer a $5 plan... can’t really do iCloud at work. Maybe I can get work to support something directly I can’t complain much, though. I’ve gotten tons of utility out of Dropbox and paid nothing. Still I’m definitely keeping iCloud and would like to avoid too many services.
