Customers can get an affected 15-inch MacBook Pro battery replaced, free of charge
Apple announced a voluntary recall of a limited number of older generation 15-inch MacBook Pro units which contain a battery that may overheat and pose a safety risk. The units were sold primarily between September 2015 and February 2017 and can be identified by their product serial number.
The recall does not affect any other 15-inch MacBook Pro units or other Mac notebooks, the company says.
A user can confirm which model they have by choosing ‘About This Mac’ from the Apple menu in the upper-left corner of a screen. Those who have “MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015),” should enter their computer’s serial number on the program page to see if it is eligible for a battery replacement.
