It’s only been a few months since Apple announced that users will be able to fix some iPhones themselves. The firm promised that the programme will begin in early 2022 for iPhone customers in the United States. It will soon roll out for other devices and areas. For those who have been waiting, the programme is finally here; as Apple has started its Self Service Repair programme for recent iPhone models in the United States.
Anyone using an iPhone 12, iPhone 13, or iPhone SE 3 (2022) will be able to repair parts of the device’s components themselves. Apple has now launched the Self Service Repair Store, according to a Newsroom post. Parts for the iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and iPhone SE 3 are currently available in the store. Batteries, bottom speakers, a Taptic Engine, a display, and other components are included. The most fascinating part is that when you’ve finished fixing the phone, certain requirements will require you to contact Apple through chat or phone for System Configuration.

Apple will allow users to repair their phones for the first time
Later this year, Apple plans to expand the Self Service Repair programme to Europe. It will also support Macs with the M1 processor family. The company also stated that it sells genuine Apple parts at the same price as authorised repair centres do. Additionally, if consumers are successful in returning the eligible replaced components for recycling, they will receive a portion of their money back.
This is a bold move by Apple, as it now joins Samsung and Google in collaborating with iFixit to accomplish something similar.
