Apple recalls 2015 MacBook Pro with Retina Display

Post by ukimalefu » ... isk-safety

its batteries “may pose a fire safety risk.

The company says there are a “limited number” of affected units, sold between September 2015 and February 2017.

check if your macbook is one of those here ... ery-recall

If eligible, the company says it’ll replace your battery for free

The bad news: You’ll need to send your MacBook to one of Apple’s repair centers, and the company’s estimating the fix could take one to two weeks. That’s quite a while, particularly if you need that machine for work. And Apple says this won’t extend your warranty.

Looks like mine is not "in the affected serial number range."

... that really doesn't make me feel any better...

Mine's a 2013. If it were a problem it'd have caught fire by now.
