Apple has recently initiated a battery recall programme for MacBook Pro Retina, 15-inch units that were sold between Sep 2015 and Feb 2017 due to the batteries’ potential overheating and fire safety risk. This recall programme applies to selected serial numbers only which can be verified on Apple Inc’s website. As such, Customers are advised not to bring said devices which contain lithium batteries identified under the above-mentioned recall programme on board an aircraft, until they have been repaired or replaced as per the manufacturer’s advice.
