Apple has unveiled Self Service Repair, which will provide Apple with authentic parts and tools to consumers who are comfortable performing their own repairs. The Self Service Repair will be available in the US by next year for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 lines, and will soon be followed by Mac computers with M1 CPUs. However, the service will be available in other countries during 2022. Customers become part of a network of over 5,000 Apple Authorised Service Providers (AASPs) and 2,800 Independent Repair Providers who have access to these components, tools, and manuals.
Every genuine Apple part is designed and engineered specifically for each product, and it undergoes rigorous testing to assure the greatest level of quality, safety, and dependability. The parts are the same as those available through Apple’s network of authorised repair shops, and they cost the same. Apple also has announced that the customers who return a changed part for recycling will receive a credit for certain repairs.
From the official Apple Self Service Repair Store, iPhone owners may order the necessary parts. They can also get store credit by sending in their old parts. Users may now hire out repair tools for $49 per week on Apple’s website.
Displays, batteries, speakers, camera modules, SIM trays, Taptic engines, and other odd products such as screws and bolts are available at the shop. The cost of things varies according to the products.
