Beginning next year, iPhone users will be able to repair their iPhones. Apple’s “Self Service Repair” initiative, which was launched on November 15, will offer parts for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 “early next year,” with parts for the latest Macs coming “soon.” The program will begin with the most commonly changed iPhone components, such as screens, batteries, and cameras. According to Apple, additional components will be available “later next year.”

Apple COO Jeff Williams says that the idea to sell replacement components, which has been desired for years, is designed to provide iPhone customers “even more choice if a repair is needed.” On the other hand, Apple does not suggest the service to everyone.

According to Apple’s blog post, “Self Service Repair is intended for individual technicians with the knowledge and experience to repair electronic devices.” “For the vast majority of customers, visiting a professional repair provider with certified technicians who use genuine Apple parts is the safest and most reliable way to get a repair.”
