Apple Self Repair Service Comes To UK

Apple has joined forces with the UK’s leading Mobile Phone Repair Service, i-Mend. Their service will allow for users of Apple products to bring their devices into their showrooms at any time for free diagnostic and repair work.

Apple has announced that its self-repair service will be available in the United Kingdom, Sweden, Denmark, France, Belgium, Austria, Luxembourg, and Switzerland.

iPhone 12, 13, and Macbook owners will now be able to fix their own devices without calling someone who, let’s face it, can’t do anything about your device issues.

Apple warns customers that any repair performed by third-party vendors will void the warranty.

Apple launched its streaming service in the US in November 2021. Following pressure from campaigners, it was announced that Apple would be offering the service to US residents only.

Frustrated at the strict control Apple has over the industry, some members of the ‘right to repair’ movement say it hurts independent shops and makes fixing faults more expensive for users.

The Apple Store is a fantastic destination for men who want to buy the latest and most excellent tech products. The service, however, has been criticized for being too difficult for the average person to manage, resulting in some reviewers like Brian Chen of The New York Times risking embarrassment by calling their local Apple Store.

“My iPhone screen was smashed in a split second with an irrevocable error,” he wrote in his article.

It’s not the responsibility of Apple to repair your device for you. However, its experts make it convenient for those who are “comfortable” with carrying out their own repairs. It also offers a warranty service with replacement devices ready when replacement is needed.

There are a lot of tools and steps it takes to perform a repair. If you need help, visit the iFixit website or purchase the iPhone 13 service manual.

The phone repairs available usually involve replacing batteries, screens, and phone casings.

Apple has responded to the criticism in the past by stating that they’ve actually lost money on repair services. But it hasn’t slowed down their innovation.

I.T. firms have been under pressure to help prolong the lifespan of hardware, both for financial and environmental reasons.

With the recent regulation requiring manufacturers of appliances like washing machines and televisions to offer spare parts in the UK, there’s no going back now.

The UK’s “right to repair” law has proven to be in line with the European Union’s policies with the aim of decreasing energy consumption and extending product lifespans.
