Google Enables Extensive Pixel Fold Repairs with iFixit Partnership
Google Facilitates Pixel Fold Owners to Repair Their Devices with Spare Parts from iFixit
Keeping its promise to Pixel Fold owners, Google has taken a significant step by offering spare parts for repair through iFixit. This initiative provides Pixel Fold owners in various countries with the opportunity to fix their phones, and the support is available in regions where the device is sold, including the US, UK, and Germany.
Google’s approach to supporting repairs is comprehensive, as they offer spare parts for virtually every component of the Pixel Fold. This includes components such as the battery, earpiece, fingerprint sensor, front camera, rear lens, and even a portion of the logic board. It appears that the only missing part for repair is the phone’s metal frame.
Each spare component comes with an extensive how-to guide, guiding users through the repair process step-by-step. Additionally, users receive warnings at critical stages, advising them to exercise caution. For instance, the guide may caution users about the fragility of the smartphone’s glass corners and recommend using heat and gentle handling.
