The Apple Limited Warranty
The Apple Limited Warranty covers your Mac and the accessories that come with it against manufacturing defects for one year from the date you bought your Mac. The Apple Limited Warranty is in addition to rights provided by consumer law.
Our warranty doesn't cover damage caused by accidents or unauthorized modifications. You can check your warranty status online and update your proof-of-purchase information if there's an error in our records.
If your repair isn't covered by our warranty, you'll pay out-of-warranty fees.
