In this day and age of battery explosion, companies are increasingly trying to overcome any problem. Apple has announced a voluntary recall of batteries in 15-inch MacBook Pro notebooks. Let's start by saying that this will not turn into another Samsung Galaxy Note7 problem. However, Apple is catching this problem before it gets out of control, but some of its older generation 15-inch MacBook Pro laptops are having battery problems that can overheat and pose a security risk to users.
Apple is claiming that MacBook Pro devices sold between September 2015 and February 2017 are the ones being retrieved and can be identified by the serial number on the laptop. The good news is that this does not affect any other MacBook Pro or Mac notebook.
The company prioritizes the safety of its customers and has asked customers to stop using the affected 15 inches and should visit Apple's support website to see if their MacBook Pro is part of the voluntary recall. To find out which model you have, click the Apple icon in the upper left corner of the screen. Choose "About This Mac" and see if you're running the 15-inch Retina Mid 15-inch model of the MacBook Pro. If so, enter the serial number to see if you're qualified to replace the battery.
There is a replacement process available to affected users, but it may take 1 to 2 weeks for the battery to be replaced.
