In a surprising announcement, Apple told the world that a “limited number” of 15-inch MacBook Pro units might contain batteries that may overheat.

They clarified that these units were mostly sold between September 2015 and February 2017.

So if you bought your MacBook Pro within this period, make sure to check your serial number, yeah?

Apple will be giving a free battery replacement for all affected units.

The first step, make sure that the 15-inch MacBook Pro is one of the affected units.

Choose “About This Mac” from the Apple menu in the upper-left corner of the screen.

But in Singapore, unlike the past, we now have a huge Apple Store smack dab in the middle of town.

It’s a safe bet to say that you shouldn’t have any issue rectifying the situation if you suay suay have such an issue.

Apple added that battery replacement normally takes one to two weeks. By the way, your warranty will not be extended.

Cause Not Known

When Samsung devices started exploding and caused them to be banned from aeroplanes, the company explained that something was wrong with the manufacturing process.

Apple, on the other hand, did not divulge the reason for the defective batteries this time.

However, they’re taking problems with their MacBook Pros over the past year, offering solutions for problems that before, they did not care about at all.

It was speculated that Apple is doing this because of the backlash their brand faced with the newer MacBook Pros since 2016.

But whichever it is, check your MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, made in mid-2015) to see if you’re in danger of having to call the SCDF to your home.

Even if it’s not made in mid-2015, just double-check the serial number just to be safe, yeah?
