Apple extends self-service repair program to new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models, allowing users to fix faulty machines at home

Apple’s self-service repair program is available for all MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models that run the company’s M1 series of chips. According Apple, users will receive over a dozen different repair types for each individual model. These repairs will include the screen, top case, battery, touchpad and more.

This isn’t the first time Apple has offered self-service repairs for its products. The company has also been offering the service for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 models since the start of this year. Now, the repair service will work the same for MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models as it does for the iPhone. Users should first consult the manual for repairs before deciding to visit the self-service repair store to order tools and parts.

Rental kits for self-service repairs will be available for $49 for users who want to repair their faulty MacBook Air or Pro for a single repair. The toolkit will be available to users for one week with free shipping. Users will also have the option to send defective parts to Apple for recycling.

Apple will launch the program in other countries later this year, starting with Europe. The company states, “For the vast majority of customers who are inexperienced in repairing electronic devices, consulting a professional repairer with certified technicians who use genuine Apple parts is the safest and the most reliable way to obtain a repair.

Update: Apple is now accepting self-service repair orders for the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro through its official site.
