Apple is replacing a number of 13-inch MacBook Pro[1] batteries after reports of a defect causing the built-in battery to expand.

Apple says affected units were non-touch bar MacBrook Pros made between October 2016 and October 2017. Device owners can determine eligibility by entering[2] their product's serial number on Apple's support page.

The battery replacement program does not affect 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar[3] or older 13-inch MacBook Pro models, Apple said.

Apple will refund those eligible who have already replaced their MacBook Pro's battery.
