Your Mac's Specs
2021 M1 MacBook Pro 14" macOS 13, iPhone SE 2, iPad 6, Apple Watch SE.
It may be available but it's not exactly easy to use for the average user.
For starters, it's limited to a silicon Mac running macOS Sonoma.
You need a secondary device like an iPhone, iPad, PC, or another Mac to run the diagnosis on the Mac to be tested.
And lastly you need to be able to interpret the results with a view to repairing the problem. Not exactly self service.

It will be of great use to private repairers and repair shops though. (y)
