If you currently own a 2016 13″ MacBook Pro with Touchbar or a 2016 or newer 13″ MacBook Pro WITHOUT Touchbar, you may be eligible for a covered repair to address one of several issues. As a Premium Service Provider (PSP) for Apple, Lapin can complete these repairs quickly and within all program guidelines.
In addition to the keyboard service program applicable to all 2016+ models of MacBook & MacBook Pro (and 2015 MacBooks), the 13″ 2016 MacBook Pro with Touchbar may also be eligible for a possible display replacement due to backlight issues causing banding, “stagelight” effect, or a completely blacked-out display. See program information on Apple’s site below for coverage details:

Additionally, these models may be subject to battery swelling/failure which may make it eligible for replacement coverage, even if your regular warranty has lapsed:
