When To Not Do Your Own MacBook Pro Screen Replacement

  • If your MacBook Pro is still under warranty, then you should not undertake your own screen replacement. Take your device to your nearest Apple store or Apple dealer to handle the repair for you. Otherwise, if you do it yourself, you will nullify the warranty on your device.
