Apple today announced that Self-Service Repair is now available in eight European countries – Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom – providing repair manuals and genuine Apple parts and tools to customers through the Apple Self-Service Repair Store.
This means that customers in these countries who wish to complete their own repairs can now purchase genuine Apple parts and tools and will be able to perform many of the most common repairs for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 lineups, and Mac notebooks with Apple silicon.
The Self-Service Repair Store, which initially launched in the US back in April, provides access to more than 200 individual parts and tools, as well as repair manuals. Self Service Repair is part of Apple’s efforts to further expand access to repairs and increase the repairability of products over time.
The service enables customers who are experienced with the complexities of repairing electronic devices the opportunity to complete their own repairs, using the same manuals, parts, and tools as Apple Store locations and Apple Authorized Service Providers.
But it is advised that for users who do not have experience repairing electronic devices, it is probably safer to visit a professional repair provider with certified technicians to get your repairs done.
