Hey Psyke,

I'm sorry to hear about this. Unfortunately because of how new this product is your only option is to take it to apple as parts for these are non-existent outside of Apple and/or AASP (Apple Authorised Service Providers).

The warranty period is one year, and the device was released less than one year ago, you can take it to the Apple Store and see what they will do

Well its not so simple ;-{

Apple will only repair or replace systems under warranty which have a product defect not one caused by the owner. A cracked display falls in that space it won't be covered.

IF the OP had bought a service contract (AppleCare+) then the cost of the repair labor will be covered and part of the parts cost (I think its half here) So the OP is on the hook for ~ $400 USD (for reference a 2019 display is $820 new) and then you need to add the labor.


@danj It's a shame it broke in 6 months, as that is at least a $3000+ machine.


@guardian10 - lowest end prebuilt is $2,500 the top prebuilt is $3,500 and it goes upto $6000 with more RAM and storage. Just a little bit of pocket change ;-}


@danj He said his had an M1 Max and was a 16". The lowest end of those is $3299.


@guardian10 - True! But what was the config? As we don't know I just gave the vanilla answer addressing the range.
