Self Service Repair is now available to European iPhone and MacBook users from Apple

iPhone and MacBook repairs may now be made at Apple’s European Self Service Repair shop, the company revealed.

After its first unveiling in November of last year, Apple’s repair programme effectively allows anybody to purchase authentic Apple components to fix their broken devices, with the Cupertino-based firm also providing online guides to help users through the self-service repair procedure.

It’s important to note that while the programme is available to everyone in the area where the repair business is located, fixing an iPhone or MacBook is probably beyond the skill set of the typical customer. However, for the do-it-yourselfers among us who are prepared to put in the time and effort to learn, Apple also sells the equipment necessary to perform fault-specific fixes, with the option to rent a repair kit for $49.

In April, Apple launched its Service Service Repair shop in the United States, offering service for all iPhone 12, 13, and SE devices up to the third edition. In August, the firm extended the programme to incorporate more MacBook Air and Pro models.

Starting today, customers in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Poland, Spain, and Sweden will be able to use Apple’s Self Service Repair option.
