Here’s how much Apple charges for each part to fix your own MacBook

Yesterday Apple revealed it would be expanding its self-service repair program to let you fix your own MacBooks, and today the program is here. Now you can download comprehensive repair manuals for your 2021 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro and 2020 13-inch MacBook Pro M1 and MacBook Air M1 – and buy the parts you might need.

But what is Apple actually letting you buy, and how much will you really must pay? It’s not obvious until you enter your serial numbers and root across the company store – so we’ve done it for you.

Many prices seem (relatively) generous! Others, not so much. You can’t just replace your own battery or keyboard on a MacBook Pro, for example! You have to buy the whole top cover that comes with this and other parts pre-attached, and it will cost you more than twice the $199 charged by Apple for the battery replacement. Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

And while you box just replace your MacBook Air 2020 M1 battery, you’ll have to spend $39 – the same price as a full set of keys – to replace broken keys on your function line. It may be because Apple ships seven sets of Fn keys at a time:


That’s a lot of feature line keycaps.

Motherboard prices are particularly attractive. Not only will Apple not let you upgrade to a higher-end card, but the company will give you a big incentive to return the original part. He expects you to shell out up to $4,222 for a new logic board – ouch having that on my credit card – but you’ll get the vast majority back when you get back. You should end up paying $588 for a 16-inch MacBook Pro, $500 for a 14-inch or 13-inch MBP, or $368 for an M1 Air, regardless of its load.

You can also opt for the $49 Apple Tool Rental – if you’re willing to forfeit its entire purchase price if you don’t return it within seven days. (It almost got me in trouble when I used one to fix my iPhone, because my parts arrived a few days after the kit, and even though I sent it back in time, Apple first reported that ‘he was missing.)

You can find a list of everything that comes with MacBook Tool Rentals at the bottom of this webpage. Interestingly, only the 2020 MacBook kits come with big, heavy special tools like display and battery presses.
