Apple will fix some MacBook Airs, free of charge

Apple has identified a serious issue with a "very small number" of 2018 MacBook Air laptops that requires the replacement of the main logic board, 9to5Mac reported on Sunday, citing internal documents from the company. If the issue is present, Apple will sub out the logic board free of charge.

According to MacRumors, affected users would have been sent out an email from Apple.

As 9to5Mac reports, Apple has sent an internal document to Apple Stores and authorised fix stores that reveals there's an issue with the main logic board in the 13-inch Retina versions of the MacBook Air 2018.

Customers who think that they may have a faulty MacBook Air, they can take the device to the nearest Apple store or authorised Apple stores to get it checked.

Because the fix program is yet to be announced officially, a list of the serial numbers that would indicate what MacBook Air models are affected isn't available at the time of publishing this article.

Apple hasn't yet listed the issue on its dedicated exchange and fix extension program website, though 9to5Mac noted it does not always do so when there isn't a large-scale problem with a product. In this case, models sold between September 2015 and February 2017 are concerned, with a serial number verification tool available on the official page of the program.
