Tier 2 Accidental Damage does cover the display, as long as everything else on the computer is not damaged. So if there is a dent or any kind of damage on a component other than the display, it can not be repaired under tier 2. Tier 2 repair is usually about $480 +labor at the Apple store.
Tier 4 Accidental Damage covers everything that could have been damaged in the computer, including the logic board. This is the tier that is usually quoted for liquid-damaged computers. A tier 4 repair is usually quoted at $650 + labor at the Apple store.
AppleCare+ does partially cover the cost of repairing a cracked screen on a MacBook Air. When you buy your computer, you are given the option to purchase AppleCare+. If you decide to purchase AppleCare+ and crack your screen, the total for the repair will be $99.
Apple stores replace parts on computers that are less than 7 years old. If your Mac is over 7 years old, you can still get it repaired, but you will need to visit a repair shop that is not an Apple store to have the service completed.
When they do send a MacBook out for service, they are actually sending it to the same repair depots that the Apple Store does. They quote a marginally higher turnaround time than Apple (about 2 weeks). But generally have the computer back a little quicker than that.
If you are experienced enough to complete the repair, you can find the panels on public sites like iFixit, eBay, Amazon, etc. As a shop, you will probably want to work with your vendor to get panels that have a guarantee so you can hold them in stock. The price for panels usually ranges from around $100 to about $400 for the newest model. Generally, the panels decrease in price with time, but sometimes if an LCD panel is not used frequently by apple, they will become rare and cost more over time for new ones.

The warranty period will be extended for the number of whole days that the product has been out of the buyer's hands for warranty repairs. If a defect exists during the warranty period, the warranty will not expire until the defect has been fixed. The warranty period also will be extended if the warranty repairs have not been performed due to delays caused by circumstances beyond the control of the buyer, or if the warranty repairs did not remedy the defect and the buyer notifies the manufacturer or seller of the failure of the repairs within 60 days after they were completed.

I want to share my experience regarding latest visit to best buy's geek squad ( NY 5th Ave ) vs Apple store ( NY 5th Ave) . I had very low volume issue on my iphone 6s and was not able to hear anything while making calls . Whereas it was working absolutely fine with headphones / Loud speaker . So i scheduled nearest apple support store visit which was best buy's geek squad . The lady was so casual and she ran diagnostic in my phone and said receiver is faulty and we need to replace it and it will cost 99$ + taxes . it would take 2 hours . She also restored all my settings. I was not satisfied so i scheduled another visit to Apple store this time . The guy in store ran same diagnostic and said sir something wrong in it but i would like to clean it properly and give a shot . He also said if the receiver is faulty we will replace it in 59$ + taxes . He went inside ,cleaned it properly and Bingo ,the phone's volume was working fine . It costs me nothing for assistance and i was pretty happy.
The first thing you should know is that Apple doesn't repair a cracked Apple Watch display. Instead, it will send you a new or refurbished unit and reuse parts from the older model on future refurbished watches.
No. Apple doesn't offer a mail-in service for Apple Watch repairs. You will have to take the watch to your nearest Apple Store or authorized service center. After an in-store check, Apple will ship the watch to an Apple Watch repair center. Make sure to back up your Apple Watch before submitting it for repair, no matter who sends it.
Your best option would be to check the repair store's reviews on Google and decide based on that. Ultimately, the chances of getting an Apple Watch repair that will meet Apple's quality standards from a third-party provider are slim.
Apple offers a Self Service Repair program that allows you to repair an iPhone yourself. However, this program is currently limited to iPhone models and doesn't offer any Apple Watch parts or instructions. The biggest hurdle in self-repairing your Apple Watch's cracked screen will be to get your hands on the replacement display.

Customers with in-warranty repairs will still need to visit an Apple store or one of more than 5,000 authorized service providers worldwide, including all Best Buy stores in the U.S. Same goes for repairs on other products, such as Apple Watch and Mac computers, or for more complicated iPhone repairs.
Another revelation from the documents is that FBI agents developed a process for investigating and prosecuting people who sent their devices to Geek Squad for repair. EFF also notes that documents reflect that employees only alert the FBI when they happen to find illegal materials during a manual search and the FBI does not direct employees to actively find illegal content. However, some evidence exists to show that Geek Squad employees made an affirmative effort to find illegal material as in the case of the California doctor, according to EFF. A financial reward would also likely encourage employees to actively seek out suspicious content, EFF says. 59ce067264
