Apple’s Independent Repair Provider program launched in the United States in August 2019 gives small repair businesses access to Apple-genuine parts, training, and resources as Apple authorized service providers. In its recent statement, Apple announced that it will be extending the program to over 200 new countries.
While there is no cost to join the Independent Repair Provider program, all Repair providers need to commit to having an Apple-certified technician perform the repair.
