I spelled some iced tea on my keyboard

I spilled some iced tea (I don't know how much liquid was spelt but not a lot) over my new MacBook Pro 13inch last week and I turned it upside down and dried it as much as possible but I didn't know I wasn't supposed to turn it off for sometime, I had an important assignment that day and I got back to working on my laptop afterwards. its still working and no harm seems to be done but I wanna know if there will be any future damages so I can set money aside. Will it stop working in the near future? will I be able to repair it or should I just start saving for a new one? should I take it to the apple store? Thanks a lot and any answers will be appreciated!

I had a similar problem with my Ipad keyboard. No damage to the circuit board was done, but the keys got sticky, and I damaged them while attempting to clean them.


Thankfully im not running into any problems like that but I read some comments about people who have the same problem as yours and they took it to a store to get the keyboard cleaned so that might be a solution!

Your best bet is finding an independent shop who specializes on Macs to open the system to inspect things if your not up to it.

Sadly, Apples policy is a bit harsh if any of the moisture detectors have been set off so not only won’t they repair it you’ll also have a letter A emblazed on the system so in any future service need it might effect their actions.

Doesn't the warranty expires if the device was opened up by anyone? I honestly don't trust Independent shops as they might do more harm than good without any guarantee and most of the ones in my area aren't truly experts. I think I will hope for the best for now and start putting money aside just in case I need a new one. Thanks a lot!
