Important notice for batteries in certain MacBook Pro units

"Apple has determined that, in a limited number of older generation 15-inch MacBook Pro units, the battery may overheat and pose a fire safety risk", the maker of upscale cheese-graters said.

The tech giant issued the voluntary recall on Thursday and it affects 15-inch MacBook Pro models that were sold between September 2015 and February 2017.
