The units were sold primarily between September 2015 and February 2017 and can be identified by their product serial number.
The recall does not affect any other models.
Apple said that, because customer safety is a top priority, it is asking customers to stop using affected 15-inch MacBook Pro units. Customers should visit the Apple website for details on product eligibility and how to have a battery replaced for free.
“To confirm which model you have, choose About This Mac from the Apple menu in the upper-left corner of your screen. If you have a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015), enter your computer’s serial number on the programme page to see if it is eligible for a battery replacement,” said the company.
Apple revolutionised personal technology with the introduction of the Macintosh in 1984. Today, Apple says it leads the world in innovation with iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV.
Apple’s four software platforms – iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS – provide experiences across all Apple devices and let people use services including the App Store, Apple Music, Apple Pay and iCloud. “Apple’s more than 100,000 employees are dedicated to making the best products on earth, and to leaving the world better than we found it,” the company said.
