In a big win for the Right to Repair movement, Apple this year announced a new Self Repair programme, allowing users to fix their own devices at home. Right now, repair kits are available for recent iPhone models, and soon the programme will expand to Mac. But judging by the iPhone repair kit, the whole thing looks a little intimidating.

The $49 rental repair kit for the iPhone 12, 13 and SE 3 is unexpectedly enormous and weighs a combined total of 79 pounds – and even comes with wheels for transportation. (In the market for a new iPhone? Check out the best iPhone 13 deals.)
