For this particular issue, Apple will contact impacted customers directly via email. The repair programme will run for four years while owners of the affected laptops can go to an Apple Store or authorised repair outlet to check.

The Cupertino tech giant has had a number of issues with its laptops recently. Apple recalled 15-inch MacBook Pros with Retina displays built between 2015 and 2017 due to battery issues that caused the laptops to overheat and pose a fire safety risk.

Wired reported that since the beginning of 2018, Apple had launched no less than five repair or notices for its laptops including the notorious MacBook keyboard problems, a battery replacement notice and a separate solid state drive replacement programme for some 13-inch MacBook Pro (non Touch Bar) units, “Flexgate” display issues, and the aforementioned batteries that posed a fire risk.Follow us on Social Media
