What’s In Your Warranty

Apple’s limited one-year warranty covers manufacturer defects, including poor battery performance or faults that arise from regular use. It does not cover accidental damage, such as a cracked screen caused by a drop. Apple will check certain markers (like strips that detect moisture inside the chassis) to determine whether any damage has been caused by user error.

AppleCare+ plan covers you for two incidents of accidental damage over two years. If you break your screen, then you will have to pay a service fee of $29. For other damages, the fee goes up to $99.
