We've all had it happen: a cracked or shattered phone screen. But how many of us have tried to fix that on our own? It might not have been an option. But now Apple, which had long resisted it, is giving iPhone owners a way to repair their phones on their own.
CNET's Chris Parker took them up on it. He ordered a repair kit from Apple's Self Service Repair Program and put his DIY skills to the test, and he lays out the process step by step so you can see what's involved. "The support manual was very helpful," he reports, "even if I did bungle a couple of steps along the way."
