Apple has recently confirmed that a small amount of MacBook Pro sold from September 2015 to February 2017 has a battery error and may affect user safety. Specifically, the battery inside the MacBook Pro may experience overheating, resulting in explosion and ignition.
Which MacBook models are affected?
Apple says the only model that has battery problems is MacBook Pro 15 inch screen life 2015. If you own any other MacBook line, you won't be affected by this error.
To be able to check the model of the device, users can click on the Apple logo in the upper left corner of the screen and select "About This Mac". At this time, the machine information will appear.
The machine information is displayed in the "About This Mac" window.
Interestingly, it was only three weeks ago that a DJ's 15-inch MacBook Pro exploded. The device was later recalled by Apple for investigation purposes, and most likely, today's announcement is the result of the incident.
