Owners of the Apple’s 13 inch MacBook Pro are advised to get their notebooks serviced as Apple today, has announced a new battery replacement program for the 2016 and 2017 model owners.
Apple has determined that, in a limited number of 13-inch MacBook Pro (non Touch Bar) units, a component may fail causing the built-in battery to expand. This is not a safety issue and Apple will replace eligible batteries, free of charge. Affected units were manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017 and eligibility is determined by the product serial number.
You can punch in the serial number (on the below link) of your 13-inch MacBook Pro and if your notebook does require servicing, you can head to the nearest Apple Authorized Service Provider.
Note: If your 13-inch MacBook Pro has any damage which impairs the replacement of the battery, that issue will need to be resolved prior to the battery replacement. In some cases, there may be a cost associated with the repair.
