Apple plans to start this program with the iPhone 12 and 13, with parts and instructions available for Macs with M1 chips. In the early stages, users will be able to replace their own display, battery and iPhone camera.
It’s worth noting that this is a big step for Apple, which has historically made it difficult to repair its equipment. The company called the program Self Service Repair. It will be launched early next year. First in the United States, then it will spread to other countries.
Apple clarified that the program is intended only for “select technicians with knowledge and experience in the repair of electronic devices.” But the majority of clients are still recommended to contact professionals.
How much the parts and tools will cost is still unknown.
