I was unaware that my warranty got expired, when I called apple support to get an APP I'v been told that my warranty got expired. Is there any way I could get an APP or extend my warranty. I'm a student,so I really need a warranty for my MACBOOK PRO. Can any one please help me?


MacBook Pro with Retina display, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    If your warranty has expired then there is no way to extended it. It must be done within the first year and or before the standard one year warranty runs out.

     

    So No there is no way to extended it or get a new warranty.

    But that does not mean Apple will not fix your Mac no matter what is wrong with it. But it will be at your expense, Cost, as there isn't any warranty on it anymore.

    As I'm a student I cannot afford the expenses if antything goes wrong, so is there any alternative.

    Wait, You have a Macbook Pro with Retina screen? If so then your hardware warranty is not over. they have been out less then one year and Apple give a One Year Hardware Warranty with every Mac sold.

     

    I think what the person was referring to was the standard 90 day Phone Support.

     

    Go to the Apple Support site, Support link at the top of this page, and select "Check Service & Support Coverage" then type in your serial number. It will come up with the amount of time left on your Hardware Warranty and or the date that it ends. You can buy the Applecare extended warranty before that End Date to Extended the Hardware Warranty for 2 more years from that End Date and with that you get Free Phone Tech Support for the total length of the warranty including the extended 2 years.

    Do you have a Mac notebook with the Retina screen? Please Answer that question, OK.

     

    As that makes all the difference in the world.

     

    The Retina screen Mac notebooks have not been out for a year yet so there is no way your standard one year warranty is over IF you have a Mac notebook with Retina screen. The Retina screen models did not come out until June or July of 2012.

    Then you do NOT have the Retina screen as it is listed in your first post.

     

    MacBook Pro with Retina display, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

     

    In that case you are out of Warranty.

     

    Good Luck & Best Wishes.

    Well Maybe you should of thought about that at an earlier time and or maybe you should of bought the Applecare extended warranty when you bought the system or maybe you should of bought a system that wasn't as expensive, as a Mac, and then you could of afforded a better, Longer, Warranty with the system at time of puchase.

     

    It's a little late now to worry about When it will fail. If it's still working you are worrying about nothing. Use it and hope for the best.

     

    Good Luck & Best Wishes.
