Apple is launching a new initiative that will allow many companies to repair broken iPhones.

The decision comes after several years of criticism of Apple’s strict policy of allowing only Apple stores and authorized dealers to repair phones with original Apple parts and tools.

In addition, several countries around the world have criticized the fact that ordinary people cannot (or not “allowed” to) repair even the smallest defects on expensive phones, and several governments have therefore announced new legislation in the area called “Right to Repair”. Legislation that simply needs to make technology companies like Apple allow consumers to repair their electronics themselves.

The company’s new initiative is first launched in the United States, but is expected to expand to both Europe and other parts of the world soon.
