According to sina.com, Apple CEO TIm Cook is optimistic about the upcoming self-repair service, which he believes is perfect for "trained" technicians and apple fans.
Apple announced on Nov. 17 that it would make parts, tools and repair manuals available to individual consumers, starting with the iPhone 12 and 13, according to public filings. The program will initially apply to the iPhone 12 and 13 series, with macs powered by the M1 chip soon to follow.
"The self-repair program will start early next year in the U.S. and expand to other countries in 2022 or later." Apple said the initial phase of the program will focus on the components that most often require repair services, such as the iPhone's display, battery and camera.
"I feel good about putting manuals and accessories out there so people can fix them themselves," Cook said in a recent interview about allowing customers to fix their iphones and Macs.
Meanwhile, Cook added that Apple will always be there for customers who don't want to fix things themselves. "If you're not a technician, we're there," he said.
