Users in Europe will be able to repair their iPhone themselves under new regulation
Apple is expanding the Self service repair program to the European market as well, giving users access to original parts, tools and official manuals for selected iPhone and MacBook devices.
Apple introduced the Self service repair program some time ago. This program, as its name suggests, gives users of Apple products the opportunity to service their devices themselves, without the need to take them to a service center.
This program is now also available in some countries of the Old Continent. Specifically, the service is now available in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain, Sweden and the UK and allows users in those regions to repair their devices themselves.
The program itself in Europe covers several series namely – iPhone 12, iPhone 13, as well as the iPhone SE (2022) phone, but not the latest iPhone 14 series. Macs with Apple chips are also supported, but not the latest M2 MacBook Air. However, the program is expected to include the latest devices soon.
Spare parts prices in Germany range from €77 for an iPhone 13 battery replacement to €330 for a screen replacement package. The same parts cost £70 and £282 respectively in the UK. Users who return a worn or damaged part to Apple will be credited with a certain part in order to reduce the price of the package.
The display sensor and cover for the MacBook Pro 14 costs €734 in Germany, while the entry-level motherboard with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage costs €959.
Renting a set of tools for repairing iPhone and MacBook devices costs 59.95 euros, for a period of 7 days.
