Apple To Replace Some Macbook Pro Batteries

Apple To Replace Some Macbook Pro Batteries

Apple has started the process of rolling out its battery replacement plan for the MacBook Pro 13-inch model without a Touch Bar. While not deemed a safety issue, Apple says affected systems feature a component that could fail and cause the laptop's built-in battery to expand. The company is replacing out-of-warranty batteries for just $29 for eligible phones through December 2018. In all cases, Apple advises you to backup your data first so as to ensure you don't lose it if the fix somehow wipes your MacBook.

Apple didn't provide any further details, but if you own a non Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro that was manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017, you might be eligible for a new battery. Owners will be able to tell if their unit is eligible by checking the serial number and typing it on to Apple's dedicated replacement program page.

This includes in the "About This Mac" option on the Apple menu, on the underside of the laptop near the regulatory markings, or on the original product packaging or receipt. There you'll find an overview of the computer, including OS name and version, model name, and serial number. The good news is that the battery replacement program will last for five years.

The replacement is free and can be switched out at an Apple Authorized Service Provider, an Apple retail store, or by mailing your MacBook Pro to the Apple Repair Center. I've previously taken my iPhone 5S and my older MacBook Pro into an Apple Store for repairs and on both occasions, I got my devices back the same day.

In order to check if you're MacBook Pro qualifies for the replacement program, Apple has set up a specific page to look up the laptop's serial number.
