“Expanding access to genuine Apple parts gives you even more choice when you need a repair. – said Jeff Williams, Apple’s Chief Operating Officer – In the past three years, Apple has nearly doubled the number of service centers that have access to original Apple parts, tools and training, and we now offer an additional option for those who want to complete. autonomously their own repairs “.
As explained by Apple, it is clear that in order to carry out a repair in total safety, it will be important first of all to consult the repair manual. Then you can place an order for Apple original parts and tools through the Apple Self Service Repair Online Store.
Following the repair, anyone returning a used part for recycling will receive a credit to spend on their next purchase. The new store will offer more than 200 single original parts and tools, allowing you to complete the most common repairs for iPhone 12 and iPhone 13.
While it is accessible to everyone, it seems clear that the Self Service Repair service is designed for people specializing in technical assistance who have the skills and experience required to repair electronic devices. Because replacing a display or a battery is not an operation for everyone.
That’s why Apple writes that “for most customers, going to a professional service provider with certified service technicians who use genuine Apple parts is the safest and most reliable way to get a repair.”
