Video Overview

This teardown is not a repair guide. To repair your MacBook Pro 15" Touch Bar 2018, use our service manual.

    Final Thoughts
    • The trackpad can be replaced without removing the battery.
    • The processor, RAM, and flash memory are soldered to the logic board. Repairs and upgrades will be impractical at best.
    • The top case assembly, which includes the keyboard, battery, and speakers, is firmly glued in place—making all those components hard to replace separately.
    • The Touch ID sensor doubles as the power switch, and is paired with the T2 chip on the logic board. Fixing a broken power switch may require help from Apple, or a new logic board.

It’s November and there’s still no teardown. What’s going on?
