Apple is expanding its Independent Repair Provider Program with additional options for customers to access repair services. The industry-leading program enables businesses of all sizes to offer repairs on iPhone using genuine Apple parts, which ensures safety and quality. Following the launch of the program in the US last fall, over 140 independent repair companies have joined with over 700 new US locations now available to customers, and businesses in Europe and Canada can now sign up.
“We are thrilled to expand our independent repair program to more locations across the US and to businesses across Europe and Canada,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer. “When a customer needs a repair, we want them to have a range of options that not only suits their needs but also guarantees safety and quality so their iPhone can be used for as long as possible.”
New US Locations for iPhone Repair
Since the launch of the Independent Repair Provider Program last fall, there are now over 700 Independent Repair Provider locations across the US providing out-of-warranty service for iPhone. The over 140 new repair businesses participating in the program vary in size and include uBreakiFix, with locations across the US.
Independent Repair Provider Program Opens to Businesses in Europe and Canada
Following a successful US launch, independent repair shops in 32 countries across Europe as well as Canada can now apply for Apple’s Independent Repair Provider Program. There is no cost to join, and the training is free for new businesses.
Apple’s Expanding Repair Services
Across its repair options and partners, Apple is working to ensure health and safety as well as access to repair services during COVID-19. This has included offering additional options for mail-in repair for customers and supporting its existing network of providers servicing customers in ways that meet health and safety guidelines.
