    Has anyone seen this yet? Moto has paired with iFixit to start selling genuine OEM repair kits for select Moto phones. I think it's a great idea personally. I bought all the tools a few months ago and have already replaced a few screens. The hard part is finding screens, or batteries, that are genuine. This should make that process much easier. And the prices are excellent, compared to other on-line repair parts sources. Obviously the phones they are selling parts for are over 12 months old, so they are already out of warranty. Should more manufacturers start doing this?

    From 9to5Google:

    Motorola and iFixit partner on official DIY repair kits with OEM parts

    I like it. If your phone is out of warranty and your so inclined, have at it. I'd try it if I needed to.

    I ordered the battery kit for my wife's Moto Z Play.....battery swelled, possibly due to the Samsung wireless charger she used (?). It was delivered today at the house.
