In April, Apple recalled some wall plug adapters for international use that could create a risk of electrical shock. Over the past several years, Apple also announced less critical replacement programs, such as for batteries and storage drives in the 13-inch MacBook Pro.
However, this battery recall marks the second significant issue with Apple laptops this year. Last month, after years of complaints from consumers, the company confirmed that some of its newer laptops have problems with the keyboard and offered a free service program to impacted customers.
Australian customers can check if their 15-inch MacBook Pro is affected at Apple’s support website.
