Apple to provide free battery replacement for Macbooks

In a recent bug that was detected in the Apple Macbook Pro, the users were unable to charge their batteries above 1%. Apple already acknowledged the issue, and now they are offering a free battery replacement for such devices. For getting the free battery replacement one simply has to go to an Apple Store or Apple-authorized service provider. The most common models that were affected by this issue were Macbook Pro 2016 and 2017 models, both with two and four Thunderbolt 3 ports. 

To make sure that you are facing the same issue and will be eligible for the free battery replacement, check if you are getting a Service Recommended status shown on the battery health. To check simply go to Apple menu > System Preferences, click Battery, click on Battery in the sidebar, and select battery health. In the older Macbook Pro, you simply need to hold the option button and click on the battery icon on the top right. 

The issue came after an update to macOS Big Sur 11.2.1 or the latest supplemental update of macOS Catalina 10.15.7. If you are seeing the same status for your battery on the Macbook Pro, then you can get your battery replaced without any kind of cost. However, in any other case with the battery, Apple will not be providing any kind of free services. Before you go for the free battery change, make sure to backup all your data on the laptop, just in case, to make sure that you have a protected backup
