So, I sent my precious 15" Mid 2015 MacBook Pro in to Apple for battery replacement under the recent recall program.
After applying inserting my MacBook Pro into a “battery proof” envelope and applying some some scary stickers to the shipping box I sent it in on July 12. It took four days to get from Minnesota to Texas, because they must use ground shipping. Apple received, repaired and shipped it back in a single day. It is scheduled to arrive tomorrow thanks to overnight (non-ground) shipping back to Minnesota.
If anybody else has been hesitating to send in their beloved non-touch bar MacBook Pro to Apple under this repair program, I’d say do it. It will be great to have the battery cycles and battery health reset.
As always YMMV, but I’d be surprised if it’s by much.
