Apple Now Permits Independent Repair Shops To Service Out-Of-Warranty iPhones

Apple announced today, through a Newsroom press release, that it will launch a new Independent Repair Provider Program,, which enables independent repair businesses to service out-of-warranty iPhones, ranging display and battery replacements, but excluding in-warranty repairs.

Independent repair shops participating in the program will receive Genuine parts, tools, training and repair manuals, the same as Apple Authorized Service Providers. The program will be implemented first in the United States. This means that third-party independent repair shops will be able to use the official genuine parts to repair the iPhone that's out-of-warranty period.

To qualify, the repair shop must be an established company and provide Apple with verifiable documentation for review. At the same time, the repair business must be in the business area and must have an Apple Certified Technician. In addition to these requirements, there is no need to pay any fees. Apple also said that meeting these requirements does not guarantee that you will enter the project. Apple COO Jeff Williams:
To better meet our customers' needs, we're making it easier for independent providers across the US to tap into the same resources as our Apple Authorized Service Provider network. When a repair is needed, a customer should have confidence the repair is done right. We believe the safest and most reliable repair is one handled by a trained technician using genuine parts that have been properly engineered and rigorously tested.
Apple claims that it has launched a successful pilot with 20 independent repair businesses in North America, Europe and Asia that are currently offering actual repair parts.
