In April, Google announced plans to join its growing list of tech companies working with iFixit. The repair shops distribute parts and tools for those interested in doing DIY electronics repairs, and as of today, iFixit’s store offers genuine Google parts for a number of Pixel phones.

You can order what you need to fix everything from the Pixel 2 to the latest Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, as well as the tools to install them and step-by-step guides to walk you through the process. (Aftermarket parts are also available if you need to repair an OG Pixel or Nexus device.)

Now if you have a cracked screen or broken charging port, your choices aren’t just looking for a repair shop or throwing the device in the trash. iFixit has all sorts of repair kits, and while they get more expensive for newer devices — replacing a Pixel 6 Pro screen with a genuine new one costs $199.99 for the kit — they vary widely, mostly based on age. Cheaper parts for older devices should help keep those phones viable as long as you’re comfortable with the support for Android software updates they receive.

iFixit’s parts and tool distribution schemes have already spanned companies like Microsoft, HTC, and even Valve’s Steam Deck. A partnership with Samsung is also in the works, and while we’ll have to wait for more details on that, it seems unlikely that a 79-pound supply of kit will be needed.
