While iFixit has given the Pixel 8s a repairability rating of 06/10, Google thinks it’s time to improve the user experience with the long-awaited launch of the Pixel Repair Mode feature for Pixel smartphones. A significant step forward in the area of data privacy during repairs.

Enhanced privacy with Pixel Repair Mode:

After successful beta testing, Google is finally rolling out Pixel Repair Mode to Pixel smartphones running Android 14. This innovative feature aims to create a secure environment during repairs, with a focus on protecting user data.


To activate the Pixel Repair Mode feature, make sure your phone has at least 2GB of available storage space, then go to Settings > System > Repair mode. Once activated, Repair Mode locks all your data, ensuring that your private information remains confidential during repairs.

Easy diagnostics with the Diagnostics app:

Google is making it easier to understand what’s wrong with your phone before it’s repaired with a new diagnostic app. To access it, simply dial ##7287## on the phone dialler keypad. This feature allows you to identify potential problems and better understand the condition of your phone before sending it for repair.

Strategic partnerships for simplified repairs:

Whether you’re under warranty or not, Google is committed to simplifying the repair process. In collaboration with iFixit, they offer users legitimate spare parts and repair guides to encourage self-repair. In addition, Google has partnered with uBreakiFix, extending its rapid repair services to over 700 locations in the US. Most repairs are completed in just 2-4 hours, offering a fast and efficient solution for Pixel device owners.


Google claims that more than 80% of Pixel smartphone users are in close proximity to an authorised repair centre, ensuring maximum accessibility to repair services. These strategic partnerships reinforce Google’s commitment to convenient and efficient repairs, making the user experience a top priority.


In summary, Google’s new Pixel repair features set new standards for privacy, diagnostics and speed. Explore these improvements now for a smarter, smoother Pixel repair experience than ever before.
