Apple recalls 15-inch MacBook Pro
Last week, Apple (AAPL) voluntarily recalled 15-inch MacBook Pros sold between September 2015 and February 2017, stating they may have a faulty battery that could “overheat and pose a safety risk.” Most of Apple’s production is outsourced to China. Shenzhen Desay Battery Technology, one of its suppliers, says it entered Apple’s supply chain in 2004. However, Apple has not revealed any information about the manufacturer of the faulty batteries.
Check here if your MacBook Pro batteries are faulty
Not all MacBook Pros have a faulty battery. Nonetheless, if you own a 15-inch older generation MacBook Pro model with Retina display, you can check if it may have a faulty battery by visiting Apple’s support page and entering its serial number. Whereas such recalls can raise product quality concerns, companies can reassure consumers by promptly addressing them.
