Apple on Friday announced that the company is rolling out a battery replacement program for select non-Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro.

The company said the issue was not safety-related and that the batteries would be replaced free of charge.

According to Apple, the affected laptops were manufactured between October 2016 and October 2017.
