Apple has announced a voluntary recall of a number of previous-generation 15-inch MacBook Pros. The recall is due to the affected models containing a battery that may overheat and pose a safety risk. Apple will replace all batteries free of charge.
Affected models were sold primarily between September 2015 and February 2017, However it is possible these models were sold outside of these dates, for example, online, Gumtree, and so on.
Customer safety is always Apple’s top priority, and we have voluntarily decided to replace affected batteries, free of charge. – Apple
