Apple announced a specialised Self Service Repair programme in April 2022. The programme provides repair manuals, parts, and equipment for the following for iPhone 12 repair:
- Bottom speaker
- SIM Tray
- Taptic Engine
Before initiating any repair, you must read the handbook to become familiar with the procedure. The link below will take you to the third-generation iPhone 12’s manual.
The repair manual details the procedure for doing the repair and leads you through the available parts. Additionally, it discusses how to prepare for a repair, the stages involved, and what to do if something goes wrong.
Additionally, Apple provides repair manuals for all iPhone 12 and 13 models, which are accessible for download below.
- iPhone 12 mini
- iPhone 12 Pro
- iPhone 12 Pro Max
- iPhone SE 3rd Generation
- iPhone 13
- iPhone 13 mini
- iPhone 13 Pro
- iPhone 13 Pro Max
Many of Apple’s repairs require a $49 toolset that weighs 70 pounds, which means that significant repairs such as taking out a battery or replacing a display are far more involved than visiting an Apple retail store.
Following the download and perusal of a repair manual, those interested in repairing Apple’s tools and equipment can place an order through Apple’s Self Service Repair website.
