Make sure you’re eligible for a free battery replacement for your MacBook Pro

If your MacBook Pro doesn’t charge the battery properly, you’re entitled to a free replacement.

Apple recently announced that some of its MacBook Pro laptops have serious problems with the built-in battery. These are models made between 2016 and 2017, and the problem is in the battery charging mode. Charging the battery of Apple MacBook Pro laptops with a failure stops at one percent, and the problem cannot be solved by the user.

Because this is a mechanical error, Apple has launched a free repair program for all MacBook Pro laptops with the aforementioned problem. Apple claims that this is a limited number of MacBook Pro laptops, as the error was fixed some time ago. Free battery replacement will of course be done by Apple Authorized Service Providers, and a list of laptops that are supposed to have these problems is available below.

It is worth mentioning that the problem with charging the battery is not limited to MacBook Pro laptops, which were manufactured between 2016 and 2017. This problem has recently affected other users of Apple laptops, but fortunately it was only software error in MacOS. Apple has fixed the bug by preparing updates for Big Sur 11.2.1 and Catalina 10.15.7, which are already available for download for Mac users.

List of MacBook Pro laptops that could have battery issues:

  • MacBook Pro 13 (2016) – 2 interfaces Thunderbolt 3
  • MacBook Pro 13 (2017) – 2 Thunderbolt 3 interfaces
  • MacBook Pro 13 (2016) – 4 Thunderbolt 3 interfaces
