What makes the new MacBook M1 delicate and costly to fix?

Apple consistently pioneers ahead of other electronics manufacturers, such as Dell, HP, Lenovo, and more. Apple meticulously focuses on design, user comfort, and simplicity, investing significantly in research and execution. Take the example of the Apple MacBook M1 and MacBook Air. They maintain the same weight and size as tablets but include a full-sized keyboard and all the essential features users seek in a portable computer. These laptops offer a battery life of over 10 hours. This dedication to innovation is why many users willingly pay premium prices for Apple products.

However, this commitment to cutting-edge technology comes with certain challenges that many third-party repair shops struggle to grasp. Some third-party repair stores mistakenly compare Apple’s technology with that of other devices, finding it more complex to repair. Consequently, misunderstandings and blame may arise in such cases.

Screen Damage: The most frequent issue encountered at our Apple store is users bringing in their devices with cracked screens. It’s undeniable that the display is exceptionally delicate, and susceptible to cracking even from minor pressure. However, Apple’s dedication to slim and compact design leads them to utilize the fragile Retina glass, renowned for its outstanding resolution.

If your screen is cracked, there’s no alternative but to have it replaced at a nearby Apple store. At Bombay Computers, we have successfully repaired displays on various MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models. Feel free to reach out to us for pricing inquiries, but when it comes to cracked screens on MacBook M1 and M2, screen replacement from Apple is typically the only viable solution

Keyboard Damage Due to Liquid Spills: When liquid is accidentally spilled on your keyboard, it can render it non-functional. However, there is a silver lining: taking prompt action can increase the likelihood of saving the keyboard.

As soon as the liquid is spilled, follow these steps:

  • Power off your MacBook immediately.
  • Disconnect it from the power source.
  • Attempt to absorb the liquid by gently blotting it with tissue paper.

After these initial steps, it’s advisable to take your MacBook to an Apple repair store. They have the expertise to assess the damage and potentially salvage the motherboard and display, especially in cases of significant water exposure to the keyboard. This can help protect the valuable data stored on your Mac.

Flex Cable: In pursuit of enhanced portability for the new MacBook M1, Apple has forsaken the traditional display connector in favor of a flex cable. This innovative change has resulted in a significantly more compact device, with the flex cable itself now notably smaller. However, it’s worth noting that this smaller flex cable is delicate, and even a slight tug or stress can potentially harm the display.
