In accordance with the program's guidelines, owners of brand gadgets will be able to service those devices at home thanks to a partnership with iFixit.

In addition to providing users with the official instructions, Samsung will also sell repair kits at its service facilities and on the website iFixit for customers who wish to fix their devices themselves.

Prices for the kits were not addressed by the corporation, although it was said that price for regular consumers and partner service centers would be the same.

Owners of the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S21 series of smartphones as well as the Galaxy Tab S7 Plus tablet will be able to fix their devices at the initial stage. The promotion will eventually cover additional gadgets. Users will be able to buy components and equipment needed for do-it-yourself repairs of their devices' screens, backglasses, and charging connections.
