Apple now lets you buy parts so you can fix your iPhone yourself

Apple has unveiled its “Self Service Repair” online store, a part of the right to repair movement.

The movement has put pressure on U.S. regulators to give consumers more control over their products.

The new program, first announced in November, will offer customers more than 200 parts and tools customers can use to repair the iPhone 12, iPhone 13 and third-generation iPhone SE.

Customers will be able to fix features like the display, battery and camera with the new tools, according to Apple.

The parts cost the same and are identical to those Apple’s authorized repair providers have access to.

The program will also include manuals, parts and tools to repair certain Mac computers later this year, Apple said.

It first launches in the U.S. but will expand to other countries, beginning in Europe, later this year.

Apple still insisted in a blog post that visiting a certified technician with genuine Apple parts is still the “safest and most reliable way to get a repair” for the “vast majority of customers who do not have experience repairing electronic devices.”

Apple has previously warned of safety or performance issues that could arise from third-party parts or unauthorized repairs.
