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

Macbook Pro

Apple has today begun rolling out a battery replacement program for the non Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro.

While this sounds risky, Apple claims it isn't a safety issue.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro model that was introduced on 27th October 2016 is being available with less expensive configuration with 8GB 1866 MHz memory and 128 GB SSD storage with non-touch bar and conventional function keys having only 2 USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports. Touch bar model users don't need to worry about the issue does not affect them. The units with the possible defect were manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017, though it isn't clear exactly how widespread this issue is as no official number of affected MacBooks has been released.

The program's webpage has a built-in serial number checker for immediate confirmation on whether your device is covered. If in case your laptop is found affected you will need to take your MacBook Pro to either to a nearby Apple Repair Centre, or Apple Retail Store, or Apple Authorised Service Provider to get the unit repaired.

In order to find your MacBook's serial number, you can click on the Apple logo given in the Menu Bar followed by selecting "About this Mac", now scroll towards the bottom of the information window. It is worth noting that you should backup all your data before giving it for the replacement.

The tech giant is reportedly already offering the opportunity for a refund to any MacBook Pro owners who already got their battery replaced and paid the $129 fee typically charged for the service. Apple further notes that the replacement program will not extend the standard warranty coverage of the affected MacBook Pro. "In some cases, there may be a cost associated with the fix".
