The Korean giant today announced the start of a new partnership with iFixit to support users with the self-repair feature for some Galaxy devices.
Through the new partnership, Samsung provides users with original spare parts and kits needed for the repair process of devices, along with instructions on how to fix various problems with devices or replace damaged parts.
This step mimics what Apple presented in the “self-repair” program, which was previously decided to start in 2022, where Apple provides, through this program, original parts with instructions and equipment required for the process of repairing devices through the user.
The Apple program is limited to the iPhone 12 series and also the iPhone 13 at the first launch, provided that Apple provides support for more versions later, and through this program more than 200 original spare parts and kits are provided for these versions.
On the other hand, Samsung also specifies devices that support self-repair at the beginning, which include the Galaxy S20 series of phones, the Galaxy S21 series of phones, and the Tab S7 Plus device. The program also does not include the company’s latest versions of the Galaxy S22 series.
Users participating in the self-repair program will also be directed to the step-by-step repair process for changing the screen, back glass, or charging port.
