If you own a 2018 MacBook Air, you might be due for a free repair from Apple. According to various reports from AppleInsider, 9to5Mac and MacRumours state that Apple has found an issue with their logic boards of MacBook Air units. It is because of this reason that they are providing for warrant free repairs up to four years after the original purchase date of the machine. The company has not disclosed anything about the problem. Not just that but they didn’t even add the Air to its official repair extension page. But according to 9to5Mac, the symptoms can include power.
According to reports by 9to5Mac, the issue was reported nearly two weeks after the company issued a public recall for older 15-inch MacBook Pros over a fire risk.
The number of MacBook Air units affected by the problem is small and therefore, the company doesn’t seem to worry about the matter much.
The company is notifying its customers through email. If you have received any such mail then you can get a free repair from Apple.
The low-key nature of the issue suggests that it is not something serious. Had it been a widespread problem, the situation would have been much bigger than this. However, the timing is not an ideal one. It comes days after the company recalled some older MacBook pros for battery problems and weeks after Apple made MacBook keyboard repairs a higher priority. It seems that Apple products are having too much trouble these days. However, it is still good to know that the company is paying full attention to these problems. At least, they are trying to solve it in order to provide the best experience to their customers.
If you are worried about your MacBook Air that you bought recently then this is a good time to approach Apple to get it fixed. However, you should make sure to take a backup of all your important data. You can also take your MacBook to the Apple store and get it checked.
