The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has banned the transport of some Apple laptop models on the plane. It is reported by The Hill.
According to the publication, we are talking about the MacBook Pro technology, implemented from September 2015 to February 2017. It is noted that in June Apple found that a limited number of 15-inch early-generation MacBook Pros might overheat, creating a risk of fire. In this regard, the company announced the recall of products.
The regulator is aware of the battery problem in some laptops and reminded carriers to follow safety rules. According to them, devices containing batteries recalled by the manufacturer should not be carried on airplanes both in baggage and in hand luggage.
In 2016, the U.S. Department of Transportation banned the transport of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphones by air. Prior to this, Samsung announced that due to cases of spontaneous combustion and battery explosions, smartphones stop production and sale of Galaxy Note 7.
