Apple announced a 13-inch MacBook Pro (non Touch Bar) Battery Replacement Program Friday. The company said a component failure may lead to battery expansion, and that affected devices can get their battery replaced.
13-inch MacBook Pro (non Touch Bar) Battery Replacement Program
From the program’s description:
Apple has determined that, in a limited number of 13-inch MacBook Pro (non Touch Bar) units, a component may fail causing the built-in battery to expand. This is not a safety issue and Apple will replace eligible batteries, free of charge. Affected units were manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017 and eligibility is determined by the product serial number.
This program does not affect 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar or older 13-inch MacBook Pro models.
This worldwide Apple program doesn’t extend the standard warranty coverage of the 13-inch MacBook Pro.
The program’s webpage has a built-in serial number checker for immediate confirmation on whether your device is covered.
