Apple extends do-it-yourself repair program to desktop Macs with M1 chips and Studio displays

Apple today expanded its Self-Service Repair Program to include Mac desktops with Apple silicon, as noted by Jason Snell on Six colors. Parts, tools, and repair guides are now available for the iMac, Mac mini, and Mac Studio with M1-series chips and the Studio display, allowing customers to do repairs themselves.

Availability of parts for Mac desktops and the Studio Display is limited to the US for now, although earlier this month the program expanded to Belgium, France, Italy, Germany, Poland, Spain, Sweden and the UK. Repair guides for Mac desktops with Apple silicon and the studio ad can be found on the Apple website.

Toolkits for Mac desktops and the Studio display can be rented for $49 each from Apple’s self-service repair store and must be returned after seven days.

First launched in the US in April, the program gives customers access to genuine Apple parts, tools and manuals to perform do-it-yourself repairs on third-generation iPhone 12, iPhone 13 and iPhone SE models. The program was expanded in August to include MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models with the M1 chip series.

According to Apple, the program is intended for people who have “experience with the complexities of repairing electronic devices”. For the “vast majority” of customers, Apple says visiting a “professional repair provider” like an Apple Retail Store is a better choice.
