Apple to offer free replacement batteries after glitch in some MacBook Pros

Apple Launching Battery Replacement Program For 13 inch Mac Book Pro Laptops PSA: Apple Announces 13-inch MacBook Pro (non Touch Bar) Battery Replacement Program
| 24 April, 2018, 05:40

Some MacBook Pro laptops are eligible for a battery swap.

Apple says the flaw is not a safety issue.

Apple says that this service does not extend the warranty on any of the MacBook Pro units affected. In addition, the device needs to have been produced in a specific timeframe. Any problems discovered will have to be fixed before the battery can be replaced. "This is not a safety issue".

Li-ion battery most commonly used in the manufacture of gadgets. They expand because gasses are building up inside from oxidation of battery's electrolyte (the chemical that allows electricity to flow between the cathode and anode). Fret not though, the company will be replacing those batteries for free. Which Apple is doing for free. The damaged Macbook Pro will get a brand-new battery for free.


In addition to this program, Apple has further said that this new program is a complete different and separate program for the Macbook Pro users and their affected batteries.

Apple will determine the eligibility for fix through a device's serial number.

Apple has launched a battery replacement program for certain non-Touch Bar models of the 13-inch MacBook Pro whose batteries may expand following a component failure. The battery doesn't need to show any signs swelling.

Do plan ahead though as Apple has noted that the service might take around 3 to 5 days to be completed. And, you can get the replacement just by visiting any of the authorized service provider or any nearest retail store.
