Apple opened up its Self Service Repair Store on Wednesday, which means that people can obtain repair manuals and genuine Apple parts and tools to fix their own iPhones. The Self Service Repair program, announced last year, is currently available in the US and will expand to additional countries beginning in Europe later this year.

The new program will offer more than 200 parts and tools customers can use to repair the iPhone 12, iPhone 13 and third-generation iPhone SE. Customers will be able to fix features such as the display, battery and camera with the new tools, according to Apple. The parts cost the same as and are identical to those Apple's authorized repair providers have access to.

To get started, you'll want to check the repair manual for the device that needs fixing, in order to work out whether Apple offers a self-service repair for your issue, and which parts are needed. Then you can order them from the Self Service Repair Store.

That said, you will of course also need to order the tools to carry out the repairs, which will add to the cost. However, Apple is offering tool kit rentals for $49, with free shipping, for customers who only need to carry out a single repair. These rentals let you keep the tools for a week.
