The new service will start with iPhone 12 and iPhone 13.
Apple has launched a new programme called the Self Service Repair that will allow users to repair their own products using authentic Apple parts and tools.
Starting early next year, Apple customers in the United States will be able to access repair manuals for iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 devices. Countries outside the US can expect access to the programme throughout 2022.
The initial phase will focus on common repair parts, such as replacing the iPhone display, battery, and camera. M1 chips for Mac computers will come soon after.
The new service will offer more than 200 individual parts and tools, allowing customers to complete the most common repairs on iPhone 12 and iPhone 13.
Customers are advised to first review the repair manual before placing an order for the parts and tools using the Apple Self Service Repair Online Store. Following the repair, customers who return their used part for recycling will receive credit toward their purchase.
However, customers without the knowledge or experience in repairing devices are encouraged to see a certified technician who uses genuine Apple parts instead.
