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

If you have a 13-inch MacBook Pro that lacks the Touch Bar and was made between October 2016 and October 2017, Apple is replacing the battery in some of the machines. They announced the marriage to the manufacturer and received a promise for a free replacement battery.

This programme does not affect 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar or older 13-inch MacBook Pro models, Apple said. The affected models were manufactured over a 12-month span between October 2016 and October 2017, which means quite a number of units could be eligible for a replacement. The exact nature of the problem is left unmentioned, though battery expansion woes are nothing new for manufacturers companies relying on lithium-ion technology.

You can use the serial number checker at the link below to see if your device qualifies for this program. Apple walks you through the replacement process here. 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.

This marks the latest in a growing number of battery-related issues that have hit Apple products. "Service may take 3-5 days". This program doesn't extend the standard warranty coverage of the notebook.

The battery program covers affected MacBook Pro laptops for a period of five years from their retail purchase date.
