A voluntary recall has been issued by Apple today for some 15 inch MacBook Pro models over concerns that the battery could overheat. That would obviously be a potential safety risk which is why the company has decided to issue the recall. It’s asking users with the affected units to stop using them in the meantime.

The company says that the affected units were sold between September 2015 and February 2017. They can easily be identified by their product number so it shouldn’t take more than a few seconds to find out whether or not your 2015 15 inch MacBook Pro is affected by this recall or not.

No other 15 inch MacBook Pro units are affected by this and the same goes for other notebooks from Apple as well. This recall is limited to the 2015 model year only. Apple hasn’t detailed just how many units are affected by this.

To check if you have an affected unit, open the Apple menu from the top left corner of your screen and click on About this Mac. If you see “MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015),” just enter your MacBook’s serial number on the program page to check if it’s eligible for a battery replacement. Additional details about the product eligibility are mentioned on the program page for this recall. It also includes guidance on how to get the battery replaced.
