MacBook Motherboard Repairs

Are you looking for a reliable and trustworthy repair center to fix your MacBook motherboard? We can help!

Has the Apple Store told you that your MacBook motherboard is damaged and needs replacement? Before you shell out for a costly replacement, try us out. We have the option to repair a defect in your MacBook motherboard. However, every motherboard is model-specific and not interchangeable, and it is not economically viable to replace the motherboard in specific devices as certain parts are linked to it. For example, the touch ID was introduced in MacBook Pro in 2016, and later models are paired with the motherboard.

About MacBook Motherboard Repair Service:

We specialize in chip-level repairs. As long as a previous unsuccessful repair attempt did not damage your MacBook motherboard, we can fix it! Few Apple Service Centers in Dubai can perform motherboard-level repairs correctly. However, we are proud to say that we are one of them. We can resolve motherboard-level repairs for most MacBook models. Our Repair Center is an ESD-protected state-of-the-art facility with highly skilled and experienced technicians.

Fixing a MacBook motherboard requires a unique skill set, technical know-how, and specialized tools and equipment for a successful repair. We believe in performing precision MacBook repair work like a neurosurgeon, which is essential while handling SMD components (surface-mounted devices). Unfortunately, most MacBook repair shops do not have the equipment or experience, resulting in failed repair attempts.

Most places handle MacBook motherboard repairs differently and usually utilize shortcuts to resolve issues. However, those issues come back. We believe in restoring your MacBook to its original state and, therefore, taking the proper route to resolve every problem. We never compromise on the quality of parts we use and workmanship, which comes at a cost. Hence, you may find our motherboard repair pricing to be on the higher side.

Motherboard repair is a complex and time-consuming process that requires patience and accuracy during the repair and troubleshooting process. We sometimes have to keep the device under observation before finalizing the repair. Ensuring a quality repair means being cautious of any express solutions or quick repair promises that may result in irreversible damage to your MacBook.

Damage symptoms:

How long will it take?

Repair time will depend on the severity of the problem and how soon we can pinpoint the faulty component. Most MacBook motherboards are repaired within the first 24 hours, provided there is no previous repair attempt. Complex motherboard faults can take several days or longer.

Is there any warranty for the repair?

Our MacBook Motherboard Repair service comes with a 6-months warranty.

*Warranty is considered void if your device has accidental damage, liquid ingress, user misuse, or if there is any third-party repair attempt carried out.

How much will it cost?

Common problems that are related to the motherboard:

IC* Integrated Circuit

WiFi/Bluetooth Module

The WiFi and Bluetooth are related to one component, which may fail or stop working due to liquid ingress or when you drop your MacBook, or it can malfunction because of component failure.

Common symptoms:

Audio IC

The Audio IC is responsible for controlling the speaker and microphone and communicating the audio signals to the CPU for further processing. The audio failure is indicated when you are having trouble with some or all sound functions of your MacBook.

Common symptoms:

Light IC

The Light IC in your MacBook might be faulty if the screen brightness is low or non-existent.

Nand IC

The Nand IC is your MacBook’s hard drive. It stores all data, applications, and software, including macOS. Replacing the Nand IC involves restoring your MacBook, which results in data loss. Hence, it is recommended that you back up your MacBook if possible. The Nand IC can be replaced with the same or greater storage capacity while maintaining the same serial number.

Common symptoms:


If your MacBook detects accessories but does not charge or does not detect USB accessories, the Charging IC in your MacBook is faulty.

Common symptoms:

Power IC

The Power IC, also known as PMIC, is one of the main components in your MacBook motherboard. It is responsible for regulating, transferring, switching, stepping up, and stepping down the voltage from the battery across the motherboard. Power IC is robust and rarely fails. Most technicians end up with the wrong diagnosis when your MacBook motherboard heats up, concluding as PMIC failure where a connected part or component is the cause for PMIC to heat up.

Is my MacBook covered under Apple warranty?

If you purchased your MacBook less than a year ago and there is no visible damage on your device, you might be eligible to get the MacBook replaced under Apple Limited Warranty at the Apple Store or any Apple Authorized Service Provider.

Not sure if your MacBook is under warranty? Check if you have an Apple Limited Warranty or Apple Care+ by entering the MacBook serial number.

Great service - thank you guys. Had the power button on my MacBook replaced on the spot, then my iPhone lightning socket was not connecting. They just cleaned out all the debris and gave it a thorough clean. The charge for that - zero. Well done guys!

An outstanding place to repair Macs and Apple devices. The employees genuinely cared about providing a high-quality service, and ensuring I left as a happy customer. Extremely rare to find this in Dubai. Asked them to fix the speakers in my 2014 MacBook Pro - received it back within two hours. Repair was completed super-professionally. Communication from the team and front desk was outstanding.

I contacted many service centers to replace the screen on my MacBook that wasnt turning on. These guys were the only one who asked to inspect first to determine the issue, all the others were happy to just replace the whole screen without checking. Turns out a lesser component needed replacing which cost half the price of replacing the complete reconditioned screen. Great service and highly recommended.

Here are some of the most common questions customers ask about MacBook motherboard repair.

Yes, the motherboard of a MacBook can be repaired. However, motherboard repairs are complex and time-consuming, requiring patience and technical expertise. Hence, it is critical to find a reliable repair center that specializes in chip-level repairs.

While Apple does not repair the MacBook motherboard, it replaces the whole motherboard, which is not always economical. The price to fix your MacBook motherboard may vary from store to store and can cost anywhere between $150 to $450

Fixing your MacBook motherboard is cheaper than buying a new MacBook and is good for the environment. However, suppose your MacBook has multiple problems and a faulty motherboard, and the repair cost exceeds the device’s value. In that case, we only recommend proceeding with the repair if your data is essential.
