How much will it cost?

There's no charge if the issue is covered under warranty, AppleCare+, or consumer law. If your issue isn't covered, the price depends on the type of repair. Ask your service representative for an estimate.

Battery service

Your Mac notebook battery service might be covered by warranty, consumer law, or AppleCare+. We might need to test your product to determine the final service fee.

Is your Mac covered by AppleCare+?

AppleCare+ gives you expert technical support and hardware coverage from Apple, including accidental damage protection. Each incident of accidental damage is subject to a service fee.

If you don't have AppleCare+, you'll pay the out-of-warranty fee for that type of repair.

Model Screen or external enclosure only (with AppleCare+) Other damage (with AppleCare+)
All Mac models NZ$ 169 NZ$ 499

These fees apply in New Zealand. All prices are in New Zealand dollars and include GST. AppleCare+ does not cover excessive physical damage, including catastrophic damage due to liquid contact or submersion, or damage caused by the presence of hazardous materials. Devices modified by unauthorized service providers are not eligible for AppleCare+ accidental damage coverage unless all original parts are returned to Apple.

Not sure if you're covered? Check if you have AppleCare+ coverage by entering your Mac's serial number.
