Apple To Allow iPhone Users To Repair Their Own Phone

Stuck with a broken iPhone?  You don’t have to lug it to the Apple Store anymore.

Apple has finally launched its Self Service Repair program in the U.S. – allowing users to buy their own parts, manuals and tools to handle repairs themselves.  Toolkits can even be rented for a week for $49.

Why is Apple launching this program now?  Pressure from state and federal governments over ‘Right to Repair’ policies.  The program will expand to Europe and other parts of the world later this year.
