Apple Announces 13-inch MacBook Pro (non Touch Bar) Battery Replacement Program

Macbook Pro

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.

In a bid to compensate for some manufacturing defects, Apple has rolled out a battery replacement programme for its "non-Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro" devices. They announced the marriage to the manufacturer and received a promise for a free replacement battery. Owners of MacBook Pro notebooks built in the date range mentioned before can go to the Apple support page for this issue and a tool is provided to check if the notebook is eligible for a battery replacement.

Your MacBook's serial number can be obtained by navigating to About This Mac from the Apple logo or on the back of the laptop. The company noted, "Use the serial number checker below to see if your device qualifies for this program".

Apple's battery scandal has some new confessions to make. Keep in mind that the service will take between 3-5 days and if there is another problem that is completely separate from the battery conundrum, it will need to be taken care of first and then come to the problem at hand. Those who have already paid for a battery replacement, and believe their machine falls within Apple's eligibility guidelines, are urged to contact customer service for reimbursement.

A number of MacBook users have reported similar issues on Apple's Support Communities forum, with some complaints referencing 17-inch MacBook Pro models last sold in 2009. Apple further notes that the replacement program will not extend the standard warranty coverage of the affected MacBook Pro.
