Apple To Start Selling Phone, Laptop Spare Parts To Consumers

Apple has announced today that it will begin selling iPhone and Macbook spare parts and tools for the first time to its customers to enable them perform repairs on their gadgets.

Reuters reports that with this new self-service program, Apple customers will now be able to buy those parts directly to perform their own repairs.

Apple said their online store will start with around 200 parts and tools aimed at fixing the most common problems relating to cameras, displays and batteries on iPhone 12 and 13 models.

Back in 2019, Apple started a program where independent repair shops could buy its parts, tools and manuals. Apple said there are now 2,800 independent shops in its program in addition to its 5,000 directly authorized repair providers.

The company revealed that the self-service program will extend to the Mac computers that use the M1 chip and eventually to less common repairs. Apple customers will be allowed to return the used parts to Apple for a discount after completing their repairs.

The program is set to begin in early 2022 in the United States and will expand to other countries later into the year.
