Apple Bringing Self Service Repair to Canada Next Year

Soon, those with a level of know-how and the desire to do so will be able to repair certain Apple products on their own.

Launched in April 2022, Self Service Repair gives anyone with relevant experience repairing electronic devices access to the manuals, genuine Apple parts, and tools used at Apple Store locations and Apple Authorized Service Providers.

Self Service Repair supports 42 Apple products, and now includes MacBook Air models powered by M3. Next year, Canada will become the 34th country in which Apple offers Self Service Repair.

Additionally, Apple Diagnostics for Self Service Repair, a software tool that enables users to troubleshoot issues, is now available in 32 European countries, including the U.K., France, Germany, and the Netherlands.

Launched in the U.S. in December 2023, Diagnostics gives users the same ability as Apple Authorized Service Providers and Independent Repair Providers to test products for optimal parts functionality and performance, and it helps identify which parts may need repair. With this expansion, Apple Diagnostics for Self Service Repair now supports iPhone, Mac, and Studio Display models in 33 countries and 24 languages.

Diagnostics is part of Apple’s ongoing effort to extend the lifespan of Apple products. Customers can access Apple Diagnostics to better understand if their product needs repair. They can begin the session on a second product and check the status and performance on the product that may need repair.

After beginning the session and following the onscreen prompts, customers will know if their products need repair and which parts need to be replaced.
