If you bought a 13-inch MacBook Pro without Touch Bar between October 2016 to October 2017, it seems that you might be eligible for a battery replacement. This is because Apple has recently launched a battery replacement program for the laptop where they claim that there is an issue with its battery.


However note that this doesn’t affect all 13-inch non-Touch Bar MacBook Pro models, but rather a small number of them. By that we’re not sure how many are affected but apparently Apple doesn’t seem to think that there are that many out there. For those who want to check whether or not their laptops are affected, they can head on over to Apple’s website, enter their serial number to check against the system.

If your laptop is one of the ones that are affected, you have the option of either mailing your laptop in, find an Apple Authorized Service Provider, or visit an Apple Retail Store to get it fixed. Note that this doesn’t extend the warranty of your laptop, and that if you had previously paid for a battery replacement, you will have to contact Apple for a refund.

This program is valid for 5 years from the release of the 13-inch MacBook Pro without Touch Bar, so you’ve got a couple of years left to take advantage of it if you haven’t done so already.
