If you own a 15” MacBook Pro laptop, here’s some important information.
Who is affected?
Apple is urging customers who bought the computer between September 2015 and February 2017 to check the serial number on the machine on the Apple recall site due to a battery fire risk.
In a statement the tech giant has said a limited number of MacBook Pro (Retina, 15in, Mid 2015) laptops contained batteries that “may overheat and pose a safety risk”.
What you should do next?
If your laptop, which cost upwards of £1,599, is one of those affected customers should stop using it immediately and return it to an Apple store, find an authorised Apple Service Provider or contact Apple Support to arrange a mail-in service via the Apple Repair Center.
Apple said: “Customer safety is always Apple’s top priority, and we have voluntarily decided to replace affected batteries, free of charge.”
How do you find out if you’re affected?
