Amid the COVID-19 situation, Apple is trying to do its part to help people in staying home. It is being reported that the company has decided to offer subsidies to authorized service providers and repair shops to pick up and drop customers’ devices from their homes.

In an internal memo shared with Apple Authorized Service Providers, information has come to light that the Cupertino-based tech giant is offering subsidies on repairs that also include pickups and drops from people’s homes. However, the subsidies are limited to Canada and the US.

Apple said that it would provide a subsidy of $20 for each Apple Watch, Beats, iPad, and iPhone pickup, repair, and drop. The company will offer a subsidy of $25 for each Mac pickup, repair, and drop. The iPhone maker also stressed in the note that “it encourages such arrangements when possible.

The subsidy program begins today, and Apple has already trained technicians and provided further instructions on how to qualify for subsidies. All of Apple Stores outside of China have been closed due to the pandemic and lockdown situations, and people have been facing problems in getting their Apple products repaired and serviced. Customers are having to turn to Apple Authorized Service Centers for support.

Apple’s subsidy program will definitely help people and technicians in feeling safe. The company’s official website lists all the Apple Authorized Service Centers when you initiate repairs online.

The company has been having problems in the development of its products due to the COVID-19 situation. Apple had to close its stores all over the world and its partners and suppliers had to close factories. It had to postpone the launch of the iPhone 9 and turn WWDC 2020 into an online-only event.
