Back in June, Apple launched a programme of free visible batteries in some MacBook Pro. The reason for this were problems that could lead to overheating and even fire of the battery. Today it became known that the Federal aviation administration (FAA) decided to impose a ban on the carriage in aircraft of the MacBook Pro, to be opinion.
It is noteworthy that the prohibition applies as for the transportation of laptops in the Luggage and hand Luggage. However, the FAA bans are more Advisory in nature and are not binding on American airlines.
In addition, it is unlikely that the airlines will be so thoroughly check the laptops of the passengers, checking the year of manufacture and serial number of the device. Most likely, validation will be limited to verbal warnings to users. Although some do not exclude that particularly conscientious airline employees do not limited to a simple review and warning.
We will remind that under the program for free replacement of the battery covered the 15-inch MacBook Pro that was produced in the period from September 2015 to February 2017. To check the specific computer for problems can be on a special service page.
