Apple is having battery troubles again, moving on from iPhones to MacBooks this time; specifically the 13-inch MacBook Pro (non Touch Bar). The company said a component failure may lead to battery expansion, and that affected devices can get their battery replaced. Apple has announced to offer free replacement for such batteries worldwide. "If your 13-inch MacBook Pro (non Touch Bar) has an eligible serial number, Apple will replace the battery, free of charge".

The issue is limited to the non Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro, and only those that were manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017.

The Cupertino-headquartered tech giant claimed that there have been issues with a "small" number of MacBook Pros, assembled between October 2016 and October 2017, 9to5Mac reported on Friday. This issue is not present on older 13-inch MacBook Pro models or the 13-inch MacBook Pros with Touch Bar.

Apple's battery scandal has some new confessions to make. Owners can head over to Apple's battery replacement program website and type in their laptop's serial number to see if they are eligible. Well, such replacements are in the rage and so is the Apple.
