Those of you with non-Touch Bar models of the 13-inch MacBook Pro should swing by Apple’s Web site to see if your Mac may be covered by a program that replaces batteries that could expand, damaging the laptop.

Had this problem with my early 2015 Macbook Pro, it looked like it was giving birth to an iPad Mini! Luckily I noticed that I had one more month left on my AppleCare coverage, so they not only replaced the battery and the bottom of the MBP, but also the top display part as well since it was subject to the delamination problem encountered on the anti-reflective coating! When I got it back, it worked exactly as before without the need to restore anything. Very happy!
