New Delhi. Several international airlines have banned older models of Apple’s flagship laptop MacBook Pro in both check-in or hand luggage, including in India, fears of battery fire have returned to haunt users of the device.

According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), there’s a chance that the devices sold between September 2015 and February 2017 could overheat and potentially cause fires.

The iPhone-maker reportedly said it had received 26 reports of the laptop’s battery overheating, with as many as five consumers reporting minor burns and one suffering from smoke inhalation.
