More details about Apple’s upcoming Self Service Repair initiative are coming to light as the company prepares for a 2022 rollout, with an internal document revealing how the program’s online parts store will operate.

Apple expects to expand the initiative to cover other repairs, including those related to M1 Macs, later in 2022.Ahead of a wide rollout, Apple issued an internal memo to flesh out details of the repair program. According to the document, seen by MacRumors, Apple intends to farm out the service’s online parts store to an unnamed third-party firm.
