MacBook Battery Recall

06/26/19

Apple has announced a recall on a specific series of 15” MacBook Pros that were manufactured in 2015.   The recall states that the battery may overheat, and Apple has deemed this a fire safety risk.   If your computer is found to have a serial number that is part of the recall, Apple recommends that you stop using your Mac, and we strongly endorse this recommendation.

The Information Services Computer Help Desk has already identified University purchased computers that are part of this recall effort, and we are working with those individuals to address this important issue. 

University of Richmond faculty, staff, and students, that may own Apple 15” MacBook Pros, manufactured in 2015 should go to the following Apple support page and enter your serial number to see if your MacBook is affected by this recall.
