Apple Replacing Faulty MacBook Air Drives

MacBook_Air_SideIf you purchased a MacBook Air sometime between the beginning of this summer and last, Apple may owe you a new drive.

Apple said this week that it is recalling some 64 gigabyte and 128GB flash storage drives that were used in MacBook Airs sold between June 2012 and June 2013.

The company has issued a firmware update — MacBook Air Flash Storage Firmware Update 1.1 — that MacBook Air owners can use to determine whether or not their machines are affected. Drives found to be defective will be replaced for free.
