How to Download All Apple’s official iPhone Repair Manuals for free

Read Time:2 Minute, 10 Second

Here’s how to get iPhone repair manuals from Apple with the steps you’ll need to complete your own repairs via the company’s newly-launched self-service program.

On April 27, 2022, Apple launched its Self Service Repair Store which strives to make DIY repairs more widely available by permitting anyone to order genuine parts and special tools needed to service iPhones. You can buy genuine cameras, batteries, screens, Taptic Engines, microphones, speakers and other components for the iPhone SE, iPhone 12 and iPhone 13. You could deem it a win for the Right to Repair movement, but iFixit begs to differ.

As part of the initiative, Apple has made all repair manuals for its products available to anyone free of charge. The manuals were only available to authorized technicians, and it’s not hard to see why. On almost every page of detailed instructions you’ll see some kind of a scary warning.

To that point, Apple is keenly aware that a repair “is more likely to be done correctly when it’s performed by skilled, trained professionals using genuine Apple parts engineered for quality and safety, and tools designed for the repair.”

Apple provides repair manuals as PDF documents which you can view in a browser or save to your computer. For those using Safari, hover the pointer over the bottom half of the page to bring up PDF controls, including a download button.

To get a list of all repair manuals for all devices, search for “repair manual” on Apple’s product documentation webpage. To narrow down the list to manuals, you can further modify your query. In our case, you’d type “iPhone repair manual” into the search box. There are other methods as well, such as clicking “Manuals” in the navigation bar of Apple’s newly-launched Self Service Repair Store or bookmarking a special link that will take you directly to iPhone service manuals faster.

Or simply download a specific manual directly using this list of PDF download links:
