hello,

MacBook Pro 13.3 2019.

thanks

Well, I’ve got some good news replacing the display is the same procedure as the four port MacBook Pro models!

Review the Teardown MacBook Pro 13" Two Thunderbolt Ports 2019 Teardown and MacBook Pro 13" Touch Bar Late 2016 Display Assembly Replacement There you can see it’s basically the same!

Sadly, this system is so new finding parts for it is not easy! Here’s one source in the UK which is out of stock

MacBook Pro 13" Complete Display - Space Grey, Apple P/N 661-12829

MacBook Pro 13" Complete Display - Silver, Apple P/N 661-12830

I would give them a call to see when they will get them in TheBookYard - Contact

Thank you for your answer. I see the price is 800$ before tax, thought it would be cheaper. How much does Apple charge for a screen replacement?

If you have an AppleCare + service contract they discount the parts price and labor. Sadly, it's likely to be close to this price. In anywise it can't hurt to make the visit to an Apple Store to find out. They at least will have the part.

If it helps, I’ve just a quote at a Genius Bar in an Apple Store for exactly this problem on an A2159 MacBook Pro :

So VAT of £ 78.20 to add bringing up a total of £ 469.20

Paul that seems low, did you have an AppleCare+ service contract for your system? You get a discount for the parts costs with it.

No, I didn’t have any AppleCare product.

I was unpleasantly shocked at the cost until it was explained to me that it’s not just a glass replacement but the whole of the hinged part : i.e. everything including the aluminium back through to the glass at the front.

Other info was that they’d have to order the part in - normally next day and it would probably be ready in 3-5 days.

Having subsequently looked at my accidental cover on home contents insurance and discovered that I only have a £150 excess to pay, this will definitely be my route.

Yes, its a bummer you can't replace the LCD panel alone (cheaper repair)!

To help see why the price they quoted still seems high the same sized display for the 4 port models 13" MacBook Pro, Complete Display Assy - Silver (New) £599 and even if you get the cheapest available (used) 13" MacBook Pro, Complete Display Assy - Silver (Grade-C) £299 And that's just for the part!

In the UK as well as EU countries you have a longer warranty period (2 years). Even still I would get the AppleCare+ contract extending the care with a service contract.

Most insurance coverage won't cover computers other than stolen from the home or in some cases your car (with proof of car damage). I was in the UK in a rental, I had stopped for food at a pub (was a great meal) on my way back to my hotel, when I got back to the car my laptop was stolen from the boot (trunk)! Reported the theft no coverage! As I couldn't prove forced entry.

The cost became unclear after I read this comment. Paul mentioned that the cost is 469 with tax applied. And you mentioned that the cost is going up. my mac is a MacBook Pro-2019 with two thunderbolt ports. I want to know the screen replacement cost at apple store UK?
