Recently, Apple happens to know that there is a certain number of Macbook pro “non-touch” bar laptop Models, that have been facing an issue of built-in battery expansion. It is due to because some of these models lack an important component that is necessary for the longevity of battery failure thus causing a decrease.
The affected models were produced from October 2016-2017, they also said this is not a big matter of concern. Therefore for this cause,Apple announced replacing battery programme which of course they are doing free of cost. This battery exchanging service also include effected Macbook pro models that had been purchased from the first retail sale of laptops.
Apple 13-inch MacBook pro eligibility criteria:
To check that if you fall at Apple battery replacing requirement, you just have to enter your Macbook serial number at Apple’s support page. You can also check your laptop serial number from Apple’s menu by clicking at “About this Mac” and it will show your serial number at the bottom of the overview.
Once you have accepted for exchange battery service, all you can do is go to an Apple registered service center, or you can contact Apple retail store, or you can Mail at Apple repair center.
One thing to be mentioned here, that by exchanging battery your Macbook warranty will not extend in anyways. If you have already changed your batteries then you can apply for a refund.
This is not the first time that Apple initiated a battery replacement service, Back in 2016, iPhone 6s had also received the same battery swelling issues, and at that time also batteries replaced for free.
