Does apple not know how to build hardware? Seems almost everything they release has a recall that reads "a small percentage of devices have this issue".

Huh, this happened to my before M1 16 inch MBP recently, though it was an internal crack (not a back hit, not something in front cracked), so luckily it was covered under warranty.

Their perpetual compulsion to make things impossibly, impractically thin causes all of the issues. It's a matter of industrial design taking priority over engineering. They would rather produce a sculpture you need to replace every two years than a functional computer that would last.

Now that they have these low-power m1 chips, it's just going to give them more rope to hang themselves with.

Functionality follows form - but Apple applies it in reverse, and worse, cut costs however possible.
In short, they sell good looking crap at a premium.
And people wonder why I only buy Xiaomi smartphones and Lenovo laptops... Hint : they do what they're designed for.

First it's long past due for Apple to drop their thinness for thinness' sake. I can live with it being a mm thicker and a fraction ounce heavier, if it won't crack itself or thermal-throttle when doing actual work.

Second, class action reform is also long past due. Yes lawyers should charge fairly for their services, but collecting a historic windfall while the people actually harmed get a crumb or two is hardly fair.
