Broken Mac Screen

If the screen on your MacBook has broken, don't despair.

We use the same screens as Apple so you don't need to sacrifice on quality either.

There are a number of different models of MacBook, each of which takes a different screen. We are able to fix any model of Apple MacBook that has been released since 2008, right up to the latest Retina MacBook Pro models. We guarantee that we are cheaper than Apple for MacBook screen repairs

Plus we were able to return the MacBook to the customer faster than Apple said that they could.

White or Black MacBook

The earlier white or black MacBooks had a screen that was not unlike a PC type laptop. We can have these MacBooks repaired very quickly.

MacBook Pro

One the MacBook Pro, Apple introduced a glass protective screen which sits in front of the actual screen. So if your MacBook Pro has what looks like smashed glass, but the graphics look fine underneath that, then it should be possible to replace the glass. This is a much cheaper repair with SimplyFixIt than Apple.

MacBook Air

The MacBook Air has a design that even now looks fantastic. It is so compact. But in order to achieve that, Apple had to make some decisions about how it was built. One of these was that the screen, including the aluminium casing, is a single component. This design was later used in the Retina MacBook Pro models.

The Retina models of the MacBooks Pro are designed in the same way as the MacBook Air; The screen can not be removed from the casing. This means that if the screen breaks on the Retina models, the entire top "lid" of the MacBook needs to be replaced. The good news is that, at the time of writing, we are able to do this repair for over £150 cheaper than Apple. Same parts – Simply Cheaper.
