The Pixel Fold from Google is finally on open sale in the US, the UK, Germany and Japan. In addition, we now have confirmation that Google and iFixit will extend their partnership for repair parts and instructions with the foldable Pixel. A Google spokesperson confirmed to 9to5Google that the Pixel Fold will see OEM repair parts, tools, manuals and guides for DIY repairs. These will include screen assemblies, batteries and charging ports at launch.
This development would make the Pixel Fold the first foldable phone to offer user-repairs. All other foldable phone manufacturers provide in-house repairs while user repairs would void their warranty. In addition to the iFixit repair tools, Google will offer in-store and mail-in repair options.

Google and iFixit have yet to fully detail the extent of their latest partnership but we should learn more in the near future.
