Apple offers free battery replacement to select 13-inch MacBook Pro users

The units with the possible defect were reportedly manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017

"Apple has determined that, in a limited number of 13-inch MacBook Pro (non-Touch Bar) units, a component may fail to cause the built-in battery to expand".

According to Apple, the potential problem is present in the 13-inch version of the MacBook Pro.

Apple is clear that this isn't a safety issue and that it will replace eligible batteries at no cost. The company on its support page writes that the issue is with a small number of MacBook Pros manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017.

Users who believe their 13-inch MacBook Pro suffers from the described swelling issue can check eligibility by plugging in their device serial number on Apple's dedicated replacement webpage. The company later apologised and lowered the price of battery replacements for affected models to $29 from $79. Apple will cover machines under this program for the first five years after the retail sale of the unit.




The Cupertino giant has now announced a worldwide "Battery Replacement Program" for the 13-inch MacBook Pro (non-Touch Bar variant).

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.

Apple says that the servicing may take 3-5 working days. Apple walks you through the replacement process here. This program doesn't extend the standard warranty coverage of the notebook.
