Heads up! If you’re using an older 15-inch MacBook Pro—the version with lots of ports that predates the current Thunderbolt 3 models—Apple has started a recall program to replace batteries that could explode and catch on fire. (We’re not kidding.) The affected MacBook Pro models were sold between primarily between September 2015 and February 2017, but to find out if your 15-inch MacBook Pro is affected, enter its serial number into Apple’s recall page. If it is included in the recall, shut it down and stop using it immediately! Contact Apple for a free battery replacement, and if you need any assistance, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

Please note: If you find that your Mac is affected and you need this repair please be aware that this service is dispatched out to Apple directly and they are quoting turn around times of 1-2 weeks. Please be sure to backup your device before bringing it in as there is a possibility that it could be erased while out for service.
