Fix your iPhone or Mac PC all by yourself? You feel like it but until now you have never been granted it. Things are changing.

Your smartphone or PC has a problem but if an assembled PC can be easily disassembled, checked and put back together, it’s a different matter if you have an iPhone or a Mac.

iPhone and Mac fixing at home, the official announcement has arrived – Sjbeez

These design objects are also designer in the way they are assembled to make it almost impossible for those who have not been trained to recognize the spaces in which to insert the screwdriver. A situation that is changing, however. Apple has in fact issued an official press release in which it announces that it has expanded the range of large and small devices that are part of Self Service Repair.

There are now many more Apple devices which, in the event of a problem, breakage or malfunction, no longer have to arrive at official assistance centers but can be treated with a bit of careful DIY. It’s clear that you need to feel capable of working on your smartphone and you need to have the right tools but it’s a small victory for all consumers.

These iPhones and Macs can be repaired at home

The Self Service Repair service was launched in April 2022 and, as stated in the press release that expands its product range, is part of the commitment “to expand repair options for consumers”. In the same press release it is also announced that the Apple Diagnostics tool will arrive in Europe next year, which allows you to find what is wrong with digital objects that are brought in for assistance.

As already mentioned, getting hold of an iPhone or a Mac is not something that everyone can do and the Apple company reminds us of this but with the right technological knowledge and the appropriate tools, those who are technologically capable of working will be able to do it independently. And it will finally be able to do so on a total of 35 products including the new iPhone 15 and M2 Macs. For the world of technology these are small, big steps forward.

And it’s interesting to note how Apple has gone from one of the companies most reluctant to allow others to look inside its devices to now being one of the standard-bearers of the right to repair movement. And even if many users will perhaps never choose to reach for the screwdriver to open their iPhone and find out what’s wrong.

Or replace an internal component that has been damaged yourself, it is interesting to note how in the world of technology we are realizing that on the one hand end users sometimes have the necessary knowledge to be able to work on the devices and on the other that if they have they also have the right to use this knowledge. iPhones and Macs will most likely never become easy to disassemble but we are still faced with a more than decent step forward and above all a step towards a slightly more sustainable technology.
