Apple Adds Self Service Repair to MacBook Air and MacBook Pro

Apple launched its self-service repair program to allow users to make their own repairs for select iPhone models last year. Now, it is expanding the initiative with MacBook laptops. It will be limited to MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models powered by M1 chips. The Cupertino giant has also restricted repairs in areas including the display, top case with battery and trackpad. A repair program for iPhone is currently available in the US.

On Monday, the maker of the iPhone declared announced the launch of a self-service repair program for the M1-based MacBook Air and MacBook Pro via a post on its newsroom site. Starting today, Apple will provide repair manuals and genuine Apple parts and tools through the Apple Self Service Repair Store.

The program will cover a variety of repairs for each of the M1 MacBook models, including the display, top case with battery, and trackpad. Apple plans to add more laptops to the roster later this year.

A tool kit for repairing MacBook models is available for a weekly rental of $49 (approx. Rs. 3,900).

Apple in April introduced a rental tool kit for users to repair their iPhone 12 series, iPhone 13 series and iPhone SE (2022) under the Self Service Repair Program. It is currently available for iPhone users in the US and is confirmed to launch in Europe later this year.
