Apple to allow customers to repair their own devices

(KYMA, KECY) - For the first time in its history, Apple says it will allow customers to repair their own products.

The new program comes as Apple and other tech companies face increasing pressure from regulators and consumers around the world to ease repair restrictions.

It's been dubbed the Right to Repair movement.

Apple announced that its new program will sell parts to consumers, and it will post online manuals to help fix a problem.

The self service repair is expected to launch early next year.

Initially, it will only be available for iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 users in the U.S.
