There Isn’t a Repair Program (Yet)
Currently, Apple has not launched a public-facing repair program to cover the costs of impacted MacBook Pro models. Though, based on how widespread it is and the fact that it could be a hardware-based design flaw, it’s likely that Apple could do so sometime in the future.
Because of the number of reports, it’s likely that Apple is aware of the problem. Similarly, there is also a Change.org petition urging Apple to launch an extended warranty program to fix impacted models. As of the writing of this article, the petition has nearly 6,000 signees.
In the meantime, it’s probably best that users argue against paying the repair costs out-of-pocket. Though if Apple does launch a repair program, it’s possible that the company could reimburse users who already paid the repair fees.
