Apple today launched Self Service Repairs, which will provide consumers who are confident in doing their own replacements with access to Apple’s original components and equipment. Self Service Repair would be accessible first for the iPhone 12 as well as iPhone 13 models, and will shortly be accompanied by Mac computers equipped with M1 CPUs. It will be accessible in the United States early next year and will extend to new nations during 2022. Consumers will be joining over 5,000 Apple Authorized Service Providers (AASPs) plus 2,800 Independent Repair Providers in gaining access to these components, tools, and instructions. The program’s early stage will concentrate on the most regularly repaired components, such as the iPhone screen, batteries, and lens.
Extra repair capabilities will be introduced later next year. Increasing access to Apple authentic components provides consumers with even more options if a repair is required. Over the last 3 years, Apple has almost doubled the number of service sites with access to Apple’s authentic components, equipment, as well as knowledge, and now they are giving an alternative for people who want to complete their own repairs.
When an Apple device needs to be repaired, qualified technicians using Apple’s authentic components may service it at hundreds of locations, such as Apple, AASPs, Independent Repair Specialists, and now product users who can undertake repairs privately. It is critical that a client-first consult the repair manual to verify that they can safely repair their device. Next, the consumer will use the Apple Self Service Repair Web Store to make an order for Apple’s authentic parts as well as components. Consumers who submit their old components for recycling after the repairs will earn credit against their transactions.
The new store will provide over 200 distinct components and equipment, allowing users to execute the most frequent iPhone 12 as well as iPhone 13 repairs. Individual professionals with the skills and competence to repair electrical devices are encouraged to use Self-Services Repair. For a majority of consumers, going to a qualified service provider with licensed professionals who utilize authentic Apple components is the most secure and dependable option to complete a repair.
The fast-increasing Independent Service Provider program debuted in the United States in 2019 and has since expanded to over 200 countries, allowing independent repair businesses to obtain the same instructions, components, and equipment as other Apple Authorized Service Providers. Furthermore, Apple continues to provide consumers with simple repair choices through its worldwide network including over 5,000 AASPs, which assist millions of individuals with both in- and out-of-warranty repairs for all Apple devices.
