Can a MacBook with water damage be repaired?
A water-damaged MacBook can be repaired in most cases. The extent of damage depends on several factors:

-how quickly you came to the service center.
If you turn off your MacBook immediately after the incident and do not turn it back on, you will save the gadget from more severe damage. Even if it seems to you that the laptop is already dry, do not check it until you receive recommendations from the service center.

How much does Apple charge for water damage?
First, let’s clarify that the MacBook’s one-year warranty does not cover water or liquid damage. This means that in any case, you will have to pay out of pocket for the restoration of the laptop.
Secondly, the cost of repairs at Apple can be very different. The price depends on the degree of damage and the model of the MacBook and can reach a very high level. Also, you will most likely have to pay separately for diagnostics.
You can save money by contacting the Repairs Bay Service Center for assistance. We carry out diagnostics for free, immediately report the entire cost of repairs and restore laptops as soon as possible.
Does putting MacBook in rice work?
In short, don’t do it!
Now let’s discuss this in more detail. So, there is an opinion that if you put a gadget with water damage in rice, it will save the situation, since the rice will absorb moisture.
Without a doubt, rice can absorb a large amount of liquid. But try to imagine the whole process. Let’s say you put a damaged laptop in fig. If even a little moisture gets on the grains, they will begin to swell and become sticky. They can get into the USB port and charging port and get stuck there. Or they can stick to the keys. What if the soft grain breaks and the particles get inside the case? None of these options sounds good.
Plus, while you’re hoping rice will save your laptop, the moisture inside the case continues to be destructive. Delays and waiting are very dangerous here.
Therefore, do not rely on the magical effect of rice, but immediately contact the service center for help.
