To provide an option for those who wish to repair their own iPhones

In the new "Self Service Repair" program, customers can do their own repairs on their iPhones. This includes common fixes such as battery and screen replacements. They will now have the access to the brand's genuine parts and tools to complete the repairs.

Basically, customers will join more than 5,000 Apple Authorized Service Providers (AASPs) and 2,800 Independent Repair Providers who have access to these parts, tools, and manuals. 

The initial phase will give them access to the most commonly serviced modules like display, battery, and camera. After that, the company will also make additional repairs available later in that year. Apple's Chief Operating Officer Jeff Williams said,

Creating greater access to Apple genuine parts gives our customers even more choice if a repair is needed. In the past three years, Apple has nearly doubled the number of service locations with access to Apple genuine parts, tools, and training, and now we’re providing an option for those who wish to complete their own repairs.

However, the company noted in its press release that self Service Repair is intended for individual technicians with the knowledge and experience to repair electronic devices. To make sure that users can safely repair your iPhone, it's allegedly important they review first the Repair Manual. 

After that, they can place an order for the Apple genuine parts and tools using the Apple Self Service Repair Online Store. After the repair, those who returned their used part for recycling will receive credit toward their purchase.

Apple said that for the majority of customers, visiting a professional repair provider with certified technicians who use genuine parts is the safest and most reliable way to get a repair.

According to Apple, this new program will be first released for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 series, followed by M1 Macs in the future. It will be rolled out first in the United States in early next year then they will add countries as coverage throughout 2022.

Excited to try the self-service repair soon? What do you think?
