Apple spent an estimated $10,000 trying to repair a MacBook Pro when the fix was incredibly simple — and it shows a limitation of Apple's latest MacBook designs

Apple tried to fix a photographer's MacBook Pro, with the repairs costing an estimated $10,000.

The issue involved the computer's screen, which didn't seem to turn on no matter what. Apple did some costly repairs.

In the end, it turned out the screen's brightness setting was turned all the way down, which is a simple and free fix.

But special circumstances meant that the issue wasn't so easily diagnosed by the photographer or Apple — and highlight what appears to have been a flaw with the computer's Touch Bar, the touchscreen strip above the keyboard.
