IPhone users can adjust their smartphones themselves

LoversApple Get a little more freedom. The Apple brand actually offers its users the opportunity to adjust their smartphones themselves and some
Computers. The move is an unexpected offer from a technology company that has made a name for itself as the most closed ecosystem of devices and software.

The online store, called “Self-Service Repair”, buys more than 200 spare parts and tools used for the most common problems of the latest models.IPhone (12 and 13), such as defective batteries or screens, according to the November 17 press release.

Compatibility issues with other brands’ devices, for example, strongly encourage consumers to stay in the Apple world. On the iPhone, Apple’s operating system closely monitors third-party mobile applications that need to go through the App Store.
