Hey!

Was just curious if Apple Service Providers only replace the LCD panel when it is broken but everything else is 100% fine or the entire thing (glass, panel, etc)?

Also, do they have to delete all data on the Mac? Or is it not required for this kind of repair?

Thanks :)

If you're referring to your MBP Retina 13" 2016 model.... Apple will replace the entire display assembly. As far as your data is concerned, you should make a backup using CCC and/or Time Machine just in case. Although I don't believe Apple will wipe the data from your Mac.

Good to know. Backup has definitely been made.
