The problem batteries are found in some 13-inch MacBook Pro laptops manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017. Some laptops built between October 2016 and October 2017 include a component that could cause its battery to swell, Apple said. If you own a laptop that might fit into that time range but aren't quite sure, you can head to the support website, type in the serial number for your unit, and see if it's eligible for fix. Recently, Apple announced that it has come across an issue with a number of its 13-inch laptops produced previous year, which will require a battery replacement to fix. The objective of the initiative is to not only avoid problems with the MacBook Pro as a result of the battery failure but also to prevent burn injuries. The serial number can be found in the About This Mac option on the Apple menu, on the underside of the laptop near the regulatory markings, or on the original product packaging or receipt. There you'll find an overview of the computer, including OS name and version, model name, and serial number. Those eligible can take the computer to an Apple Store or an authorized service provider, or mail the laptop to a fix centre. I've previously taken my iPhone 5S and my older MacBook Pro into an Apple Store for repairs and on both occasions, I got my devices back the same day. Simply visit Apple's Battery Replacement Program page and enter the serial number of your Pro in the box provided.
