At home, Apple will soon sell its parts and tools to fix its own iPhone or Mac

In recent years, It has been a winner for the “right to repair” thinking, which has given consumers the option of repairing their own devices.

Apple said on Wednesday it will begin allowing customers to repair their iPhones, even giving instructions and selling parts and tools for people to work on their devices at home.

It’s a major change for Apple, which has had strict rules for years on what customers allow it to do to their phones. Customers who try to adjust their iPhones risk void the warranty.

The program will also soon extend across iPhones to Mac computers, the company said in a blog post. Will be in the US “early next year” and then expand to additional countries.

“Creating greater access to Apple’s true features gives our customers even more choice if they need to be repaired,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer. “Over the past three years, Apple has almost doubled the number of workspaces with access to real Apple features, tools, and training, and now we provide options for those who want to complete their own repairs.”

Apple for years has been a hotbed of consumer rights advocates arguing that industry laws against reform are too broad. In recent years, they have rallied around the “right to repair” concept, which has also allowed Apple to allow more third-party companies to refurbish the company’s products.

Apple has begun changing course. In 2019, it began selling parts, tools and repair guides to independent repair shops.
