What does the 'Self Service Repair' really mean? Many still won't be fond of repairing their own phone.
Many have advised that doing a D.I.Y. repair could potentially damage your device.
Some may feel capable of replacing screens, batteries and cameras etc.
It also allows the ability of independent retailers to fix Apple products while using genuine parts.
In the past, Apple had been picky regarding who they sent their devices to for repairs.
