Apple MacBook Pro Recall
Given the popularity of Apple MacBook Pro laptops, the chances are that if you don’t own one yourself, you probably know someone who does. While they do carry a pretty hefty price tag, their build quality is excellent and, on the whole, provide some solid value for money.
Apple has issued a formal recall on MacBook Pro laptops that may have a battery fault that could potentially cause a fire. Those affected fall into the following categories;
- Those sold between September 2015 and February 2017
- 15″ retina display variant only
Apple has made it clear that if your MacBook Pro doesn’t tick both of these boxes then it’s almost certainly fine.
What Should I Do?
If you believe that you may own a MacBook Pro that falls into this recall remit, then you need to contact Apple via their website providing them with the serial number. With this, they will be able to categorically confirm whether you need to proceed any further.
Given the potential risk of fire (which is probably minimal), you are strongly advised however to still get this checked and, if necessary, a new battery fitted which, as this is a recall, shouldn’t cost you a penny.
