Apple Announces Battery Replacement Program for 2016 and 2017 Non-Touch Bar 13-Inch MacBook Pro Models

Apple today announced a new battery replacement program designed for 2016 and 2017 13-inch MacBook Pro models that do not have a Touch Bar.

Apple says that a limited number of these units feature a component that can fail and cause the built-in battery to expand. It is not a safety issue, according to the company, and Apple will replace all eligible batteries.

Affected units were manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017 and eligibility is determined by the product serial number.

Customers who want to see if their machines are eligible for a fresh battery should use the serial number checker on the MacBook Pro Battery Replacement page.
