Apple plans to offer “more than 200 individual parts and tools” for iPhone 12 and 13 models early next year to complete the most common repairs. ‘Self Service Repair' will expand to additional countries throughout 2022.
It means you’ll be able to buy parts and tools through the ‘Self Service Repair Online Store,’ where you’ll also have access to service manuals and some version of their repair-enabling software.
Apple has long been a target for right-to-repair advocates because of its practice of locking down its software so that parts are encoded to a specific device. Some attempted repairs — such as replacing a broken original screen on iPhone 13 with a new original iPhone 13 display screen — have left phones ID unusable.
The self-service repair programme comes after years of pressure from consumer groups that have resulted in Apple providing greater access to repair manuals and genuine parts.
The Federal Trade Commission, the administration of US President Joe Biden and state legislatures have been considering regulatory changes that would make it easier for Americans to repair their broken devices.
Apple said the programme will begin early next year in the US and expand to more countries later in the year. Now, start phone DIY Repairs with the Spudger Pry Opening Tools Kits
