Apple is allowing consumers to fix their phones and computers at home. The firm will begin selling parts and tools, as well as step-by-step instructions on how to repair Apple products without having to bring them into a shop or a third-party repair business. Apple will begin with the iPhone 12 and 13, followed by Macs with M1 chips. At first, you’ll be able to replace the iPhone’s display, battery, and camera using components from Apple, with additional choices becoming available later.
Apple will sell iPhone parts
This is a significant change from Apple, which has historically been opposed to the right-to-repair movement and opposes any repairs done outside of its stores. Apple is backtracking on software that would disable Face ID if customers replaced their own screen.
Apple announced Self Service Repair
The program is called “Self Service Repair” at Apple, and it will be available “early next year” in the United States and then expand to other countries. The initiative is restricted to “individual technicians with the knowledge and experience to repair electronic devices,” according to Apple, which claims that most customers should still visit a professional. Customers who don’t feel comfortable taking the device into a repair shop may now take advantage of Apple’s new DIY repair option. According to reports, making these repairs yourself will not void your device’s warranty, but damaging your gadget in the process will.
