> Laptops that have replaced batteries won’t be impacted
Edit: re how to check, in theory you could prove it was fixed by showing the service receipt from Apple. In practice, I have no idea what would happen. But I feel like you'd get through if you showed up with a printed receipt taped to your laptop.
"It's not in the affected serial number range.
Our records show that your device has already been serviced as part of this Program."
But how on earth would the TSA ever know to check or tell the difference, unless they ask you straight up.
I.e same honour-system that works for 99% of bans.
