Free battery replacement of faulty MacBooks manufactured between October 2016

Free battery replacement of faulty MacBooks manufactured between October 2016

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.

The issue is limited to the non Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro, and only those that were manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017.

Apple on Friday announced that the company is rolling out a battery replacement program for select non-Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro. "This is not a safety issue and Apple will replace eligible batteries, free of charge", quoted the giant on its Apple support page that offers the confirmation on the news. Company gross margins represents its total sales revenue minus its cost of goods sold (COGS), divided by the total sales revenue earned by the company, expressed as a percentage. "Service may take 3-5 days". You will need to get in touch with Apple Support for that.

According to documentation provided by Apple, the new replacement program covers 13-inch MacBook Pro without Touch Bar models impacted by what appears to be a battery manufacturing flaw.

Apple, however, will not extend the standard warranty coverage of the devices. Apple is also offering users who paid out of pocket to replace the battery on notebooks covered under this program a refund. You will have to find your nearest Apple Authorised Service Provider or make an appointment at the nearest Apple Retail Store or send the laptop to the nearest Apple Repair Centre.
