Apple's Self Service Repair Store Now Taking Orders for MacBook Air and MacBook Pro

Apple is now accepting orders through its Self Service Repair Store website for MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models, as per its announcement on Monday.

Apple Self Service Mac Repair August 2022
The online store briefly became unavailable on Tuesday morning while the website was updated to reflect the expansion of Apple's Self Service Repair program to Macs.

Owners of MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models with chips from the M1 family are now able to obtain repair manuals and genuine Apple parts and tools via the store. There are no manuals or parts available for Macs with the M2 chip or desktop Macs yet.

Apple launched Self Service Repair for the iPhone earlier this year for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13. For the Mac, the program works the same as with the iPhone, obligating customers to first review the repair manual before visiting the Self Service Repair Store to order parts and tools.

Self Service Repair for MacBook Air and MacBook Pro offers more than a dozen different repair types for each model, including the display, top case with battery, and trackpad, with more to come in the future, according to Apple.

Apple will offer rental kits for $49 for customers who do not want to purchase tools for a single repair, providing them with access to a tool kit for one week with free shipping. Customers can send replaced parts back to Apple for refurbishment and recycling, often receiving credit for their repair purchase in the process.

The program currently only operates in the United States, but Apple says it will be expanding to Europe later this year. Apple also plans to make repair parts and manuals available for additional Apple silicon Mac models later this year.

I think for most people it is more prudent to let Apple repair do the work.

What is the price of M1 battery?
Right now, it's not showing the 'Battery Only Pricing' for the Top Case Part but the total Exchange Rate. Assuming this will be available later on, the Battery Pricing is usually $149.25 (The same as what our AASP pays to get it). Add the toolkit rental for $49 and you're basically at the exact cost the Apple Stores charges for the battery service.

If you're trying to avoid the cost of the toolkit, you'll need the following at a minimum:

* Pentalobe screwdriver
* Torx T3
* Torx T5
* Torx T8
* 3 mm hex nut driver
* Torx security (1IPR) bit (or iPhone Security Screw bit)
* Black Stick
* Suction Cups for pulling off the Bottom Case (be careful not to bend it open)
* ESD Tweezers, ESD Mat, ESD Wrist Strap, basic ESD precautions, etc... Don't touch anything if you don't know what ESD is

The fact that you can't buy just the battery now tells me you'll never be able to. Which is ridiculous since its the only "disposable" part of the computer.

How hard would it be for you guys to give some indication of the cost? What can be obtained, is it expensive? How does it compare to third parties? Come on guys.
