iFixit Prematurely Listed Every Steam Deck Replacement Part It Plans to Sell

iFixit prematurely revealed all the parts it plans to sell for the Steam Deck that will soon allow you to fix Valve’s latest handheld by yourself, if you so choose.

As reported by The Verge, iFixit was already known to be one of the authorized sellers of Steam Deck replacement parts, but the collection of parts were not quite ready to be announced yet, including the motherboard with the AMD Aeirth chip for $ 350.

It appears that some orders were even placed, and iFixit said it will honor those that made it in.

“Earlier today we published some pages related to our upcoming parts launch with Valve,” iFixit wrote on Twitter. “These went live earlier than we planned, so we ended up taking them down. If you did get a parts order in, we’ll honor it. Stay tuned for the real launch soon!”

iFixit’s parts will do more than simply let you fix your Steam Deck, as some parts could be an upgrade to certain models. This means those that purchase the 64GB or 256GB models will soon have the chance to purchase and install the 512GB model-exclusive premium anti-glare etched glass for $ 95.

Steam Deck Teardown

One of the big pieces missing from this list is the Steam Deck battery. According to iFixit CEO Kyle Wiens, the team is working on it.

“We are building a solution for repairing the Steam Deck that includes all the step-by-step guides and parts that you need to fix your Deck,” Wiens said. “Our initial release includes the parts and tools to complete most repairs.

“We don’t have a solution for battery repairs on day one, but we are committed to working with Valve to maintain these devices as they age. Battery replacements are going to be essential to making the Steam Deck stand the test of time.”
