Apple has today announced the expansion of the Self Service Repair program to include the iPhone 14 lineup and newer Mac models such as the 13-inch MacBook Air powered by M2, and MacBook Pro models powered by M2 Pro and M2 Max. Self Service Repair for these devices will be available starting June 21. It is still uncertain whether the new 15-inch MacBook Air with the M2 chip is included in this expansion.
Along with these additions, they have also announced that the System Configuration process used for iPhone repairs will now be even easier to use with the postrepair software tool, which according to Apple, ensures repairs with genuine Apple parts. As a result of System Configuration, the Self Service Repair program will also be available to replace Touch ID and Face ID modules.
According to Apple,
This new inclusion was very much expected due to the nature of the Self Service Repair program. Back in November of 2021, I tweeted about the possibility of Apple expanding this program to include service for Touch ID and Face ID, and today’s announcement confirms that it has become a reality.
#Apple's Self Service Repair might introduce Self Replacements for #TouchID and #FaceID Modules, along with a pairing software to pair the new parts with an Apple Product. Also, it is still unsure if Self Repair affects warranty status of the device. #RightToRepair pic.twitter.com/cWjZSB1o71
