Apple is offering a battery replacement program for some of its 13-inch (non Touch Bar) MacBook Pro models. The affected models of MacBook were manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017. 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.

Apple took to Apple support page to post details about the eligibility criteria for the replacement program. The company has said that there is some component failure in the built-in batteries of some limited number of MacBook Pros.

Haberman responded with a tweet that linked back to her story and took a jab at Trump's misspelling of her name. Trump accused the Times of relying on "non-existent "sources" and a drunk/drugged up loser who hates Michael".

In case, you have already gotten your battery replaced, you can claim for a refund, Apple has assured. However, Apple didn't reveal the actual number of MacBooks that have been affected by the issue.

The Cupertino giant has now announced a worldwide "Battery Replacement Program" for the 13-inch MacBook Pro (non-Touch Bar variant). You can opt to use an Apple Authorized Service Provider, make an appointment at an Apple Retail Store, or mail your device to the Apple Repair Center. You will need to get in touch with Apple Support for that. Apple has requested customers who are getting their batteries replaced to backup their machines well in advance. After that, it's a matter of 3 to 5 days for service to take place. Apple says hardware warranties remain unaffected by the policy update. "In some cases, there may be a cost associated with the fix".
