For parts to repair Macs, the service will be available in the United States starting August 23 for MacBook Air and MacBook Pro with the M1 family of chips. Left out, therefore, are traditional Macs (at least for now) and laptops with Intel processors or those with an M2. However, Apple intends to extend the service to more models throughout the year.

As in the case of the iPhone, the most handy users will be able to buy the parts separately and, in addition, add an Apple tool kit. This is $49 per week and it is designed for those people who do not have the necessary tools and do not want to buy them just for a repair.

It will be necessary to wait to see the prices of the pieces. In the case of iPhones, yes, it is true that some repairs are cheaper in strictly monetary terms, but there are others that are more expensive. And that without counting the time invested and the risks assumed.
