Apple has introduced a program that replaces the batteries of some 13-inch MacBook Pros without a touch bar for nothing. The company says a "limited number" have expanded their batteries.
9to5Mac recognized the program that allows users to swap the computer's battery for certain 13-inch MacBook Pro models with non-touch bar. Apple notes that a small number of computers manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017 have a faulty component that causes the battery to expand. On the page for the program, there is a field where owners can enter their computer serial number to verify their eligibility.
If the computer is qualified, users can take their MacBook Pro to an authorized retailer or retail store or send it to the Apple Repair Center. Users who have already replaced their battery can contact the company for a refund. Apple points out that damage that prevents battery replacement must be repaired first and that the program does not extend the standard computer warranty.
