Apple is offering a battery replacement program for some of its 13-inch (non Touch Bar) MacBook Pro models.

Numerous affected laptops may not have experienced a swollen battery at this time, but Apple explains that it has identified a component that can fail and result in damage to the built-in battery. Apple has announced to offer free replacement for such batteries worldwide. The units with the possible defect were manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017, though it isn't clear exactly how widespread this issue is as no official number of affected MacBooks has been released. The issue doesn't affect models with the Touch Bar.
