The company will replace the batteries in the devices for free.
Apple announced the recall of a 15-inch MacBook Pro 2015 with a Retina display, sold between September 2015 and February 2017. The reason was the risk of a battery igniting devices. This is stated on the Apple support site.
According to the company, the problem affects the “limited number” of devices. In this case, Apple is ready to replace the batteries in any 15-inch MacBook Pro mid-2015 with a Retina display, if they were sold on the specified dates. You can check whether the program is distributed to the device on the company’s website by entering the laptop’s serial code.
In the event of replacement, laptop owners will have to send them to an authorized Apple service center. The works will take from one to two weeks, and the replacement program will not extend the warranty of the device.
In April 2018, Apple launched a program to recall some 13-inch MacBook Pro 2016 release without a touch bar. Then the battery also became the cause of the problem, but this did not threaten the safety of device owners.
