Apple Self Service now also for MacBook models

Apple's so-called "self-service" offerings consist of tools and replacement parts that customers can use to repair their devices at home. The program was announced back in November 2021: Self Service Repair - Apple provides parts and guides for customers. And since the beginning of 2022, the first iPhone repair packages have also been delivered. You can find a review of it here: Apple Self Service Repair Review – Too difficult, too difficult, too expensive. As of today, Apple also has the right kits for MacBook repairs on offer; for the time being only in the USA.

In addition to the iPhone 13, iPhone 12 and iPhone SE (3rd gen), there are now also "Self Service" offers for the MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air with M1 chip. The program will first start in the USA.

Apple Self Service for MacBook models with M1 chip

As early as November last year, Apple announced packages with tools and spare parts for M1 MacBooks in addition to the sets for iPhone repairs by customers. These included the respective models of the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. For the time being, however, the offers are only available to those interested in the USA. Whether and when the self-service for MacBook models with an M1 chip will come to Germany is still pending. Apple meanwhile points in a press release points out that the offers for independent repairs are more aimed at technically gifted users:

"Self-Service Repair for MacBook Air and MacBook Pro offers more than a dozen different repair types for each model, including the display, top case with battery, and trackpad, with more to come. Tech-savvy customers who are experienced in electronic repairs can repair these Mac notebooks themselves using many of the same parts and tools that are also available at Apple Retail Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers."

First read the instructions, then order the repair set

So that DIY friends don't overestimate themselves and have to give up at some point of the repair or make a mistake beforehand, Apple notes that the corresponding repair instructions should be read before ordering a self-service kit. Then it can be decided whether the repair or the replacement of parts on the iPhone or MacBook is feasible. As of now, Apple only offers iPhone instructions in English. You will find this with this link. These include repair manuals for the iPhone 13 series, the iPhone 12 series and the 3rd generation iPhone SE.
