Apple launched a program to replace the batteries of its non-Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pros for free, as announced by a company on April 21, 2018.
9to5Mac unveiled the new program for some MacBooks Pros. This program will allow users to be able to get their computer’s battery replaced for certain non-Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro models. According to Apple, few computers manufactured by them between October 2016 and October 2017 seemed to have a faulty component. The company said that this faulty component was in turn, responsible for the batteries of the computer to expand. The program’s page displays a field for owners to submit their computer’s serial number to check for its eligibility.
In case their computer qualifies for those that fall under the category of batteries that require replacing, users can bring their MacBook Pro to visit an authorized dealer or a retail store, or can mail it to Apple’s repair center. Apple has also made arrangements for those users who have already replaced their battery, by allowing them the privilege of refund on contacting the company. Apple also notifies its users that any damage that obstructs the battery’s replacement will be required to be solved and repaired first, further stating that the program will not extend the computer’s standard warranty.
