As you might be aware, Apple recently released a self repair service. The Self Service Repair is aimed at individuals who have the ability to repair electronic devices. However, the majority of Apple product users continue choose to visit a professional Apple repair provider in the Toronto area. Here at Ask Computers we have a team of certified technicians and genuine Apple parts, which is the most reliable and safest way to repair your devices.
What Is the Self Repair Service?
The Apple Self Repair Service allows you to download manuals, purchase parts or rent out tools to perform your own repair service. To order anything from the service, you will need to provide an IMEI number. You can find this number by going to the Settings app and selecting General > About, to find the IMEI. The IMEI number should be 15-digits.
How Do You Repair?
Firstly, doing Apple repairs is not easy. Ideally, this should only be done by the experienced hands or trained professionals. However, the downloadable manuals guide you through the process of performing your repairs. The manual will also tell you which tools, replacement parts and software you will need to perform the repair.
To download the manual, go to their website and select the model of phone you are using. Currently, the self service is only made available to the iPhone 12 and 13 (including Mini, Pro and Pro Max) and the iPhone SE (3rd generation).
The service is only currently available in the US, but there are plans to extend it to other countries, including some European nations.
Warranty And Damaged Parts
The good news is that using the self repair service does not void your Apple device warranty, assuming you do not damage your phone in the repair process. Any hardware damage will nullify your warranty.
So while the self repair service does present an opportunity to try the repairs for yourself, it does pose a risk if you’re unsure about what to do. Alternatively, the safest option is to contact repair professionals to help you with your Apple product repairs or any queries you might have.
