Motorola and iFixit have announced a partnership to offer certified repair kits for some of the most recent Motorola smartphones. The kits contain tools, genuine Motorola-branded replacement parts, complete with step-by-step instructions on how to fix the device. "You get a screwdriver with the necessary bits, some spudgers, picks, tweezers, and (sometimes) a heating pad to melt the adhesive that's so common in today's smartphones," said iFixit in a blog post announcing the partnership, which it describes as "representative of a broader movement in support of our Right to Repair."
