Apple to recall older MacBook Pro on ‘fire safety risk’

On Thursday, the 20th of June 2019, the Cupertino-based iPhone maker and the largest contributor to US treasury over the recent past, Apple Inc., had issued a statement saying that the company would recall a limited number of 15-inch MacBook Pro units, as their batteries were prone to overheating and could unleash a potential “fire safety risk”.

Besides, the company had also added in its Thursday’s (June 20th) statement that the MacBook Pro 15-inch sold between Sept. 2015 and Feb. 2017 could be identified by their serial number and would be called on battery overheating issue.

In point of fact, Apple Inc. had also asked its customers not to use the MacBook Pro units susceptible to potential fire hazards. Aside from that, the iPhone maker had relived other MacBook customers saying that the recall would be involved its other units or Mac Notebooks.

However, a similar incidence was witnessed a few years back, when South Korean telecommunication giant and the world’s number 1 smartphone vendor, Samsung Electronics, had ditched its Galaxy Note 7 out of the market less than a quarter since its launch due to fire safety hazards, as several Note 7 phones were reported to catch fire over battery explosion due to overheating.
