Apple has announced that its Self Service Repair program will be available for iPhone 14 series and 13-inch MacBook Air and MacBook Pro powered by M2 chip starting June 21, 2023.

In April 2022, the Cupertino tech giant launched the Self Service Repair program in the United States which empowered consumers to obtain repair manuals, genuine parts, and tools from Apple to repair iPhone 13, iPhone 12, and iPhone SE (3rd generation) models themselves. 

Later, the program included support for 13-inch MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, 14-inch MacBook Pro, and 16-inch MacBook Pro in August and Mac Studio, Apple Studio Display, and in December, the program included support for Mac Studio, Apple Studio Display, and M1 Mac Mini. 

It was also expanded to more regions like France, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Poland, Sweden, Spain, and the United Kingdom.

Apple Self Service Repair now offers an easier System Configuration process for iPhone repairs

As per the press release, Apple Self Service Repair has also made the System Configuration process easier to use for iPhone’s battery, display, and camera repairs.

System Configuration is a postrepair software tool that ensures repairs with genuine Apple parts — designed and tested to internationally recognized standards — were completed correctly, and the parts are working properly. The tool is available for free to all Self Service Repair users and participating service providers in Apple repair programs.

Now, Self Service Repair users can start System Configuration by simply putting the device into Diagnostics mode and following the onscreen prompts to complete the process.

Previously, users had to contact the Apple Self Service Repair support team to run the process, the final step of a repair. However, the support team will still be available for assistance.

It is imperative to run System Configuration after a device has been repaired to authenticate that genuine Apple parts were used, update the firmware, and calibrate parts to ensure they deliver maximum quality and performance. 

When a device’s biometric authentication sensors like Touch ID and Face ID are repaired, the System Configuration links them to the Secure Enclave on the logic board to ensure its security and user privacy.
