The biggest problem with Apple devices is that they are almost impossible to repair. However, if the user decides to repair it, it is far from cheap at an authorized service center.
But that will change now. Apple is solemn announcedto give its users the “right to repair”.
The self-repair program will be launched first in the United States next year, and later in other countries around the world, including Europe.
The company will focus first on the iPhone 12 and 13, and later on Macs.
“In the first phase, the program will focus mainly on frequently replaceable parts, such as the screen, battery and camera. Other spare parts will be available during the year, “they said in a press release. “Access to official Apple spare parts gives the user more options to repair the product,” added Jeff Williams.
But how will the self-repair take place? Of course, the user should first read the instructions on how to replace an individual part at all, so that he can determine for himself whether he could carry out the repair himself. In the next step, however, he will be able to order any spare part he needs online.
The user who sends back the damaged or replaced part of the device will receive additional credit for the next purchase.
However, the question of spare parts prices remains. Probably these will (not) be very cheap, as Apple currently charges up to 300 euros for changing the screen on a smartphone.
