Apple recalls older MacBook Pro over fire risk

Posted by itinabox services on

Apple has issued a recall for a number of its older generation MacBook Pros due to a fire hazard.

The “voluntary” recall applies to 15-inch MacBook Pros with retina displays sold primarily between September 2015 and February 2017.

In a notice issued on 21 June, Apple said the “limited” number of PCs contain a battery that “may overheat and pose a safety risk”, warning users to stop using the device if affected.

According to Product Safety Australia, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC)’s information arm, the models have a 15.4-inch (diagonal) display and  2.2-2.5 GHz processors.

Specifically, the MacBooks are the ones with 256 GB-1 TB solid-state storage, two Thunderbolt 2 ports, two USB 3 ports and one HDMI port.
