How to Download Apple’s Self Service Repair Manuals for iPhone 12, iPhone 13 and iPhone SE Models

Read Time:1 Minute, 57 Second

Apple in April 2022 launched a dedicated Self Service Repair program that provides the repair manuals, parts, and tools necessary for fixing the iPhone 13 Pro Max display, battery, bottom speaker, camera, display, SIM Tray, and Taptic Engine.

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.”

The iPhone 13 Pro Max manual can be accessed using the link below.

To get to a repair manual, you just need to visit Apple’s Self Service Repair website. From there, click on the “Apple Repair Manuals” link under “Support.” You can also click below to get directly to the manual that you’re looking for. Note that all of the links are PDFs on Apple’s site.

Repairs are available for the 2022 iPhone SE, the iPhone 12 models, and the iPhone 13 models below.

The repair manual explains how the repair process works and it walks through the parts that are available for purchase. It also includes details on how to set up for a repair, the steps required, and what to do if something goes wrong.

Apple also has repair manuals for all iPhone 12 and 13 models, as well as the iPhone SE, with download links available below.

Many of Apple’s repairs require a toolkit that is priced at $49 and weighs in at 70 pounds, so major fixes like swapping out a battery or replacing a display are rather involved compared to visiting an Apple retail store.

After downloading and reviewing a repair manual, those who want to proceed with Apple’s tools and equipment can initiate an order on Apple’s Self Service Repair website.
