In April of this year, Google and iFixit entered into a partnership in which users were promised access to spare parts for smartphones from the American company. And now the Pixel phone self-repair program has started working – iFixit has begun selling original parts.
The range includes screens, rechargeable batteries, cameras and charging connectors. They can be purchased separately or as part of the Fix Kit, which includes everything you need for a specific procedure. For example, in the case of screen repair, the kit will include a tool, a suction cup, and glue. Kits are available for a wide range of Pixel models, from Pixel 2 to Pixel 6 Pro. iFixit promises to expand the range of spare parts and not delay the sale of components for fresh models. So, spare parts for Pixel 6a will be on sale in the fall.
It is important to note that all components, except for batteries, are provided with a lifetime warranty. Batteries have a one year warranty. In terms of pricing, the Pixel 6 Pro screen is priced at $193 and the Fix Kit version is $200. The cost of the original battery for Google Pixel 4 XL is $43.
