Apple's self-repair diagnostics now available in Europe

Apple's software tool called Diagnostics for Self-Service Repair is now available in 32 European countries, including the UK, Germany, France, and the Netherlands.

After launching a software tool that enables users to troubleshoot issues in the US last December, Apple is expanding it to European users.

Now, the tool supports iPhone, Mac, and Studio Display models in 33 countries and 24 languages, Apple said in a blogpost.

Overall, Self-Service Repair supports 42 Apple products and now includes MacBook Air models powered by M3 chip.

The tool, which is also used by Apple Authorized Service Providers and Independent Repair Providers, helps users evaluate whether their product needs repair.

To troubleshoot a device, users need another Apple device. After beginning the session and following the onscreen prompts, customers will know whether their products need repair and which parts need to be replaced, Apple says.

Launched in April 2022, Self Service Repair gives anyone with relevant experience repairing electronic devices access to the manuals, genuine Apple parts, and tools used at Apple Store locations and Apple Authorized Service Providers.

Next year, Canada will become the 34th country where Apple offers Self Service Repair.
