Last year, Apple announced the availability of self-repair kits for iPhone. Apple’s Self Service Repair program offered same manuals, genuine Apple parts, and tools used at Apple Store locations and Apple Authorized Service Providers for anyone.
Today, Apple announced that Self Service Repair will be available for the iPhone 14 lineup and additional Mac models, including the 13-inch MacBook Air powered by M2, and MacBook Pro models powered by M2 Pro and M2 Max from June 21.
Apple is also making the System Configuration process used for iPhone repairs, such as displays, batteries, and cameras, even easier to use. System Configuration tool is now available for free to all Self Service Repair users and participating service providers in Apple repair programs.
System Configuration tool is useful in two ways:
- Running System Configuration after a repair authenticates genuine Apple parts, updates firmware, and calibrates parts to ensure maximum performance and quality.
- For repairs involving biometric authentication, such as Touch ID or Face ID, System Configuration links the biometric sensors to the Secure Enclave on the logic board to ensure device security and customer privacy.
Self Service Repair will also be available for the True Depth camera and top speaker for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 lineups — as well as Mac desktops with M1 — in the U.S., Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain, Sweden, and the U.K.
Self Service Repair is part of Apple’s efforts to expand access to repairs.
