Apple has announced that it will be replacing the batteries of select non Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro units. The company notes that a “limited number” the devices have an issue in which a component failure could cause the built-in battery to expand. Apple also noted that the affected units were manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017. The company insists that this isn’t a safety issue, and it will replace the batteries free of charge. Apple notes that this issue does not affect the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar or older 13-inch MacBook Pro models. 

Eligibility is determined by the product serial number. Users who think that their device might be affected by the issue can check by clicking here and typing in the serial number in the space below.

This isn’t the first time Apple has to provide battery replacements for its products. A few months back, Apple admitted that it was deliberately slowing down older iPhones. The company said that it was doing so in order to provide a better user experience at the cost of reduced performance. The company would later offer a discounted battery replacement service, in which it would charge users Rs 2,000 for those who wanted to replace the batteries on their phones. Eligible iPhones include the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone SE, iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus. The discounted battery replacement program will be valid till the end of 2018.
