Being self-dependent is a great feeling! Isn't it? Well Apple thinks like us too. You no longer have to go to the Apple repair store when your iPhone needs a new part or to get a defective one repaired. Yes, you can can carry out your iPhone repair yourself! However, for starters, only iPhone 12 and iPhone repair is possible. Apple announced a 'Self Service Repair' program which will allow users to get access to Apple's genuine parts and tools to repair their own device.

Tech-savvy users who are comfortable with the repair, can get access to tools for the iPhone 12 and recently launched iPhone 13 lineups. However, soon Mac computers will be included in this policy by next year in the US and will expand to other countries throughout 2022. Already 5000 Apple Authorised Service Providers (AASPs) and 2,800 Independent Repair Providers have access to these parts, tools, and manuals provided by Apple, and now consumers can avail of them too. Though, in the initial phase of the program the consumers will be able to get basic service modules such as iPhone display, battery, and camera.

Consumers will first need to review the Repair manual to ensure the repair safely. Following that, the customer will place an order for the Apple genuine parts and tools using the Apple Self Service Repair Online Store. After the completion of repair process, customers who will return their used parts for recycling will get credit towards their purchase.

The Repair Provider program was originally launched in the US in 2019 and has since then rapidly expanded independently in more than 200 countries, allowing independent repair shops to access repair training, parts, and tools as other Apple Authorised Service Providers. Even in the past three years, the Cupertino-based company has increased its number of service locations to double with the access to Apple genuine parts, tools, and training, including more than 2,800 Independent Repair Providers.
