Get ready to hit up the one tech-savvy friend or family member you know because Apple is FINALLY letting people fix their iPhones and Macs on their own if they're good with technology!
The company just announced it "Self Service Repair" program where you'll be able to buy parts and tools directly from Apple to repair your products at home and avoid a three hour trip to the Apple Store.
Apple plans to start with the iPhone 12 and 13, followed by Macs with M1 chips and you’ll be able to replace the iPhone’s display, battery, and camera using parts from Apple at first, with other options coming later.
The program will launch “early next year” in the US and then expand to other countries with more than 200 individual parts and tools. Pricing for the parts and tools hasn’t been announced., but Apple says customers can receive a recycling credit for returning their used part after completing a repair.
