iFixit is now selling parts straight from Motorola

Not a knockoff.

iFixit has long been known for selling toolkits and providing guides on how to open consumer hardware so you can try your hand at fixing your phone instead of spending a bunch of money at a repair shop. iFixit has also sold replacement parts for various pieces of hardware so users can get their tools and replacement parts all in one go.

What’s been missing, until now, is support from a device manufacturer. But that’s about to change: Motorola is partnering with iFixit to sell legitimate parts so that users can fix their phones with official, Motorola-approved items.

The only parts available are replacement batteries and screens, but to be fair those are usually the first things that need replacing. Each kit comes with everything you need to safely open your phone, so you don’t have to go hunting for extra tools. Here are the first round of phones you can get parts for:

  • Moto Z
  • Moto Z Force
  • Moto Z Play
  • Moto X (2013)
  • Moto X Pure Edition (2015)
  • Droid Turbo 2
  • Moto G4
  • Moto G4 Plus
  • Moto G5
  • Moto G5 Plus

None of these are brand new phones, but that makes sense: you shouldn’t need a new battery right after buying your phone.

Are you going to breathe new life into your old Moto phone with a new battery or screen? Let us know down below!
