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

In the meantime allowed to Just replace the battery on your 2020 M1 MacBook Air, you’ll have to spend $39 – the same price as a full set of keycaps – to replace your faulty function row keys. It may be due to Apple charging Seven sets of fn . keycaps in time:

The mainboard prices are particularly interesting. Not only Apple does not allow you to upgrade to a higher board, the company strongly recommends that you return the original part. You’ll be expected to set aside up to $4,222 for a new logic board — or if I have that on my credit card — but you’ll get most of that back on return. You should end up paying $588 for a 16-inch MacBook Pro board, $500 for a 14-inch or 13-inch MBP board, or $368 for an M1 Air board , no matter how loaded it is.
