Apple recalling some Macbooks due to battery fire risk

[ Edited ]

https://news.sky.com/story/apple-recalls-some-macbooks-over-battery-fire-risk-11746133

 

15-inch Mid-2015 Pros are apparently the only machines affected, Apple advising against use until the battery is replaced.

Current tech used:
Nokia 5 on giffgaff, Core i7 9700F PC with Win 10 Pro. Apple Mac Mini late 2014 with Core i5 running 10.15
Home Internet Connection: Zen Internet Fibre To The Premises Full Fibre 1 38 Mbps Down/9 Mbps up,
I don't work for O2 but have an interest in networks (including mobile) and IT (which is how I earn my living)

No, too rich for my budget Smiley Happy

 

I have a Mac Mini which I bought because I need to know a bit for work but that's as far as I go.
