From Apple’s press release:
Apple today announced Self Service Repair, which will allow customers who are comfortable with completing their own repairs access to Apple genuine parts and tools. Available first for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 lineups, and soon to be followed by Mac computers featuring M1 chips, Self Service Repair will be available early next year in the US and expand to additional countries throughout 2022.
I’m curious to see what type of pricing is offered on the parts and how that would compare to paying Apple to perform the work for you. I also wonder whether the existence of this program will change the way Apple designs products, does this mean we’ll see more easily repairable devices?
