Apple's long-promised Self Service Repair program is finally here.
In a press release, the company has announced that it has officially launched the program and that repair manuals, genuine parts, and genuine tools are now available to all users through the Apple Self Service Repair Store. The program is available first for users in the United States and is expected to expand to Europe later this year.
The first devices to be covered with the program are the iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and 3rd generation iPhone SE. Apple says that Macs with Apple silicon will be added "later this year."
Apple says that all of the parts and tools will be available at the same price as the company offers to its third-party repair partner network. Those who wish to rent some tools can do so with a weeklong rental kit for $49.
