Apple launches another switch campaign, which this time affects SSD hard drives on Macbook Pro. These may cause hardware failure and data loss to these devices.
After showing that Apple has launched an ad campaign on inaccurate iPhones ("Swiss IT Magazine" reported), another repair program comes around the corner: 13-inch Macbook Pro owners without touch needing to repair their device, because the installed SSD is defective . As Apple states, disk failure may result in data loss and synchronization.
The reminder concerns the MacBook Pro 13-inch model without touch bar, which was sold between June 2017 and June 2018. Owners of a damaged device must first make sure that the device actually works. In the upper left corner of the screen, the device information can be called with the "About This Mac" button, called "MacBook Pro (13", 2017, two Thunderbolt 3 ports) "on the Apple menu, the serial number can be entered on the support page to make sure the device is affected if this is the case, the device must be provided for repair to prevent data loss.
Apple is important that the hard disk is backed up in advance because all data has been completely removed during repair. Also, sufferers should make sure that the appliance can not be damaged, making it difficult to repair. They should be defined in advance at their own expense. The repair does not extend the warranty cover for the device.
