- Apple announced late last Friday that it will provide free replacements for some MacBook Pro batteries.
- The program only applies to 13-inch MacBook Pro computers, which were manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017.
- It also only applies to MacBook Pro computers without the Touch Bar touchscreen keyboard. Your computer should look like the one pictured at the top of this post.
- “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,” according to the announcement.
