Apple has initiated a worldwide voluntary battery recall for certain rechargeable batteries that were sold for use with the 15-inch MacBook Pro between February and May.
“We recently discovered that some 15-inch MacBook Pro batteries supplied to Apple do not meet our high standards for battery performance. To give our users the best experience possible, we will replace these batteries for customers free of charge,” the company said.
“The affected batteries do not pose a safety risk. You may continue to use your current battery until a replacement arrives,” Apple added.
The affected batteries have model number A1175 and a 12-digit serial number that ends with U7SA, U7SB or U7SC. To view the model and serial numbers located on the bottom of the battery, you must remove the battery from the computer. The battery serial number is located above the barcode.
After serial number verification, Apple will ship a replacement battery free of charge.
