Apple begins 13-inch MacBook Pro battery replacement program

Apple is having battery troubles again, moving on from iPhones to MacBooks this time; specifically the 13-inch MacBook Pro (non Touch Bar). The very latest feed has come from the giant in the form of a news that the company is offering an innovative worldwide battery replacement program for 13-inch MacBook Pro but for a limited number of models that do not have a touch bar.

In case, you have already gotten your battery replaced, you can claim for a refund, Apple has assured. Owners of MacBook Pro notebooks built in the date range mentioned before can go to the Apple support page for this issue and a tool is provided to check if the notebook is eligible for a battery replacement.

According to Apple, the affected laptops were manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017.

A page on Apple's website will check a laptop's serial number to see if it is among those affected, with instructions about the return process if it is. After that, it's a matter of 3 to 5 days for service to take place.

Your 13-inch MacBook Pro (non Touch Bar) will be examined before the service to check if its qualified and in working order. Those who are eligible can take their MacBook Pro to an Apple retail store, an Apple Authorized Service Provider, or even mail it in for servicing after contacting Apple Support. Apple will cover machines under this program for the first five years after the retail sale of the unit.

Apple, however, will not extend the standard warranty coverage of the devices.
