An iPhone undergoes repairs. [credit:
First announced in November, Apple is now selling and renting parts to customers who want to repair their iPhones.
In a blog post, Apple describes the program, which closely matches what was previously announced. You can now visit an online “Self Service Repair Store” to read repair manuals and order tools and ports. The store is only available in the United States for now, but it’s coming to other countries later this year. The first additional countries will be in Europe, Apple says.
The store offers more than 200 parts and tools. Apple says the parts are the same as those used in Apple’s network of authorized repair providers.
