A service that gives customers access to real-time features and tools to allow them to make their own adjustments on the iPhone 12, iPhone 13, or M1 Mac, Apple has launched Auto Repair.
The project will begin in the United States early next year before expanding to more countries throughout 2022.
As things stand now, Apple’s 5,000 Authorized Service Providers (AASPs) and 2,800 independent repair providers are the only ones with access to real features, tools, and scripts. With today’s news, customers will even have access. During the initial stage of the program, the focus will be on common performance modules such as the iPhone display, battery, and camera. Once the system has grown over the years, it will be possible to self-replicate other modules.
While anyone may be going through a personal repair, Apple really intends this program to be used by individual engineers with knowledge and experience of electronic repair. The company also advised many of its customers to visit the professional repair manufacturer that Apple has certified as this will likely lead to some problems.
