Apple Self-Service Repair available in eight European countries

In April this year, Apple opened its self-repair service in its home country, the United States of America. Now it is Europe’s turn to receive this service that allows users to purchase original Apple parts and tools to carry out repairs on brand equipment, in the comfort of your home.
