Good thing is since 2022 – thanks to rights-to-repair groups pushing and movement, Apple has finally gave in to let the owner to do self-service repair by releasing official self-service repair guides for its iPhone.
Unfortunately, Apple has only shared a few models so far and they (the self-service guides) are made newer models only. Well, at least it’s a good start.

Bring it all together
Hopefully Apple will remain committed to let its own users – us, the iPhone owners – to do self-service repair on their own iPhone by providing guides for more iPhone models – not only newer models but also older models, because while there are people who keep replacing their iPhone after 2 years, but there are also people who are still holding into their iPhone after 2 years (like myself), and these iPhone are actually the ones needed the repair guide more, since some components on the iPhone after 2 years started aging – such as the battery that require changing.
