Apple’s Self Service Repair Is Now Available in the US

US customers can purchase official components for home patches

Apple’s self-service repair program, which allows customers to order official tools, parts and repair manuals, has officially begun in the United States.

We’ve known since 2021 that Apple was working on a self-service repair program, but so far we only knew it was planned for some time in “early 2022”. Well, it looks like Apple has decided the time is right, as it just announced that the program has launched for its US customers.

According to Apple, Self Service Repair will provide those capable of performing home electronics maintenance with hundreds of official parts and tools to repair their iPhone 12s or 13s. It also says support for Apple Silicon Macs will be added later this year, but didn’t give a timeline.

The first step is to consult the repair manual for the device you want to repair. Then, once you’ve determined what you need, you can order the necessary parts and tools directly from Apple. And if you don’t want to buy the tools outright, rental tool kits are available for $49. Once the repair is complete, you can also send the old parts back for recycling, which could earn you a credit from Apple, depending on the component being returned.

According to Apple, the parts offered under the self-service repair program are “the same, at the same price, as those available from Apple’s authorized repair network.” It also states that the tools available are the same tools used by official Apple Repair Network partners.

Self-service repair is now available for US customers and will open to other (but unspecified) countries later this year, starting with parts of Europe. However, Apple recommends that you only attempt at-home repairs if you have previous experience repairing electronic devices.
