Apple opens Self Service Repair to US iPhone users

Apple announced that Self Service Repair is now available, providing repair manuals and genuine Apple parts and tools through the Apple Self Service Repair Store.

The new online store offers over 200 individual parts and tools, enabling customers who are experienced with the complexities of repairing electronic devices to complete repairs on the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 lineups and iPhone SE (3rd generation), such as the display, battery, and camera. Later this year the program will also include manuals, parts, and tools to perform repairs on Mac computers with Apple silicon.

To start the Self Service Repair process, a customer will first review the repair manual for the product they want to repair by visiting Then, they can visit the Apple Self Service Repair Store and order the necessary parts and tools.

The parts are the same ones – at the same price – as those available to Apple’s network of authorized repair providers. The same goes for the Apple tools available to customers on the Self Service Repair Store.

Apple will offer tool rental kits for $49, so that customers who do not want to purchase tools for a single repair still have access to these professional repair tools. The weeklong rental kits will ship to customers for free.

Self Service Repair is part of Apple’s efforts to further expand access to repairs.

Self Service Repair is available in the US and will expand to additional countries – beginning in Europe – later this year.
