Apple is replacing the batteries for some 13-inch MacBook Pros

Apple has unveiled a program
to replace the batteries of some non-Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook
Pros for free. The company says that a “limited number” have
had their batteries expand.

9to5Mac spotted the program
, which will allow
users to get the computer’s battery replaced for certain
non-Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro models. Apple notes that a
small number of computers manufactured between October 2016 and
October 2017 have a faulty component which causes the battery
to expand. The page for the program has a field for owners to
submit their computer serial number to check its eligibility.

If their computer qualifies, users can bring their MacBook Pro
to visit an authorized dealer or a retail store, or can mail it
to Apple’s repair center. Users who have already replaced their
battery can contact the company to see about getting a refund.
Apple notes that any damage that inhibits the battery’s
replacement will need to be repaired first, and that the
program doesn’t extend the computer’s standard warranty.
