Warranty Repair

Apple Computer Warranty Repair:

MacLife techs have training directly from Apple and perform Apple Warranty repairs on Mac computers at no charge. Our Apple Certified Technicians can perform warranty repairs at MacLife, your home, or your business.

Call our Service Department to confirm your Apple warranty coverage and to discuss your repair options. You never need an appointment to talk with our service staff, but if you would like one, you are welcome to schedule an appointment here.

In the event your repair is not covered either by the Apple Limited Warranty or AppleCare,  we’ll discuss all of your repair options and work with you to set up a repair plan.


We Recommend AppleCare

Purchasing AppleCare will extend your hardware warranty and phone support to 3 years. You can add AppleCare to a system for one year after its initial purchase date.

All Apple computers come with a standard 1 year hardware warranty and 90 days of Apple telephone support.  Your Apple Limited Warranty covers parts and the labor to replace them.  Apple software and operating system issues are covered for 90 days.

Non-Warranty Repair

You never need an appointment to talk to our service department.  Our staff will discuss your repair options and develop a service plan with you.

  • Bring your system in to either store.
  • Call our Service Team.
  • Have us call you.

Apple has recognized the MacLife Service Department as being among the best in the country with a high accuracy in diagnosing and completing repairs quickly!   All computer repairs done at MacLife are performed by Apple-certified technicians using authentic Apple Parts.

Common Repair Services & Our Rates

Standard Hourly Rate $129

Mac Tune Up / Used Computer Check $69
If your system is running slower or you’re concerned about a change in performance, a System Tune Up is the place to begin. We start with a thorough system cleaning, inside and out. Diagnostics are run to confirm that the hardware is working well and all system software updates are installed.
