    I need to replace my MacBook as the battery is not holding any charge anymore and I use it for work constantly

    Does any other MAcBook charge using USB C and if so any advice, I dont need a brand new one just need a 13" for work as I cant trust my laptop battery anymore - which is annoying and Apple wont replace unless I pay

    The Retina MacBook (12") all the way back to 2015 will charge via USB-C. The MacBook Pro (13" and 15") will only do so in its current configuration.

    Thanks, I have the current MacBook - the battery has died (which is crazy) and its not on any kind of support\replacement program so its not cheap to fix and I lose the Laptop for 5 days!!!

    Just pay for a new battery... its much cheaper than getting a used laptop (which will also have an old battery btw). Batteries are naturally deteriorating and have to be replaced from time to time. And as to "5 days" — I am sure you can arrange a same-day replacement if you ask nicely. They probably need to order the battery in the first place. if you pay upfront and ask them to call you once the battery has arrived, the actual replacement only takes few hours, if at all.

    Sorry to hear about your troubles. Since you are in the UAE do you deal with Apple directly, or via a 3rd party reseller? With Apple you can usually get to a higher level of management and see if they can expedite the repairs.
