Apple extends do-it-yourself repair program to MacBooks

(Reuters) – Apple on Monday announced it would provide users with tools, parts and a repair guide for its MacBook laptops, modeled after the existing program for iPhones.

As of Tuesday, customers of the brand can either buy or rent a repair kit for a price of $49.

Only MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models equipped with M1 chips can benefit from this repair service, Apple said, while consumer groups have been pressuring the company to make such a service widely available for many years.

Apple launched a do-it-yourself repair service for select iPhone models in the US in April and plans to expand it to Europe this year.

The American group last month agreed to pay $50 million to resolve collective litigation related to the “Butterfly”-type keyboards fitted to certain models of its MacBooks.
