Apple is set to launch an online order service with sales of screen, battery and camera parts for the iPhones 12 and 13

Apple has announced a self-service repair programme so customers can fix their own devices

When the program launches in early 2022, it will cover replacing the batteries, screens and cameras of recent iPhones.

Apple’s new repair store will sell more than 200 parts and tools.

It comes after months of increasing pressure on Apple from the grassroots right-to-repair movement which wants individuals and independent repair shops to be able to fix electronics.

The program will launch in the United States first

Starting in the US in early 2022 and then the UK and other countries, a new online repair store will offer more than 200 individual parts and tools for repairing the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 handsets.

The service will start by offering parts for the screen, battery and camera, the bits of an iPhone most commonly brought in for fixes.

“Creating greater access to Apple genuine parts gives our customers even more choice if a repair is needed,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer.
