    • It's so much a matter of how YOU feel about it - I actually enjoyed the protection of having only Apple make repairs but I totally understand that people want the right to repair it themselves. Those of us that want to can still get Apple to make the repair. We had a phone screen replaced before by a third party and they fitted a non-genuine part which was really poor quality compared to the original. They said that they were under no obligation to tell us that they weren't authorised to work on the phone, or that they'd use non-genuine parts. At the end of the day, if you use a third party to repair an Apple device in 2021, Apple still get to sell the replacement part so I guess they're happy. Their obligations to repair any damage caused during that repair are zero. As so many have mentioned, if you don't like the product, you're of course free to vote with your wallet and buy something else. Personally, I don't see a consumer right to repair as necessary but respect those that do want that right. There should certainly be environmental legislation extending the supported life-span of products, though. What's the oldest bit of working tech you own?

    • @Umar Gaming 311 It's not just "nice" to have. It affects everyone who use these devices. Whenever someone's phone breaks, they usually go to their local repair shop, and when these small repair shops don't have the necessary parts (because OEMs don't provide them), consumers are either forced to get it repaired on official stores at exorbitant prices or buy a new phone at an even higher price. It's exploitative and wasteful. Smartphones are just one example. R2R covers a lot of consumer/industrial products too (tools, tractors, etc) as the other commenter pointed out.

    • I'm surprised there are consumers opposed to R2R. Expensive, multi-purpose products like smartphones should be repairable, period. Especially now that people are holding on to their phones for much longer and millions of phones are becoming e-waste simply because of one or two broken parts. We can't just switch brands either because other companies are starting to copy Apple's planned obsolescence antics bit by bit. Imagine if most people had to buy an all-new desktop PC because they couldn't replace one faulty component.

  • My cynical mind is saying this is a way for Apple to point and say, 'See?! We're allowing customers to repair their own devices!' Because they _know_ that the vast majority of people with broken Apple products will not opt for this method. Until more details are made available, and until independent repair shops have all the uncomplicated access, I'll be looking at this sideways.

    • Honestly I was thinking about getting an m1 mac but I was thinking ok what if the screen breaks and I have to pay like 300$ for a screen repair (I don't know the cost and what applecare covers because I never owned an apple product), I think I will pass. This is making me think hmm, especially if the cost of the repair trickles down to repair shops this is swaying me towards one

  • My take is that Apple will go further in the direction of tight integration between modules, grouping them in just a few blocks/components. Those will be easy to replace (by anyone), but pretty much impossible to fix due to this tighter integration. At the end, independent repair shops will also lose as their advanced expertise won't be applicable most of the time.

  • I think that even though people are seeing the catch here, it is a great thing. Many people will not dare to fix their phones by themselves, but many of us who have changed screens, buttons or batteries, will certainly appreciate it without having to pay extra for the job. And I hope this is something we see more in the future. Whether you like it or not, Apple is THE company everyone has an eye on them in every single aspect. Other companies making fun of them for not including earphones, then the chargers. They even made ads making fun of them to end up doing the same. In that regard, I think they are in the right path, and again, whether we like it or not, Apple is the most influential company that exists.

  • Its a nice first step though. Thanks Marques for enlightening the topic. I hope other companies will also start doing something for their post sales service improvement. I was a big Pixel phone's fan since beginning. But their pathetic post sales service (specially when there is no warrenty) lead me to remove myself from their fanbase. They (Google) doesn't give post sales service to their customers directly, they do it through a third party (B2X) for all their non-warrenty product's service, which is "pathetic". for an example, tell me, who on earth will spend Rs.34000 to repair a battery related issue for Pixel 2 phone? whereas we can buy a new Pixel 4A device in just Rs.25000 in India. 🤦🏻

  • This sounds really great! I hope it puts a lot of pressure on other companies like John Deer to allow and facilitate repairs and modification. (Hello Nordic Track!) Especially good for people without an Apple store near them, no one wants to send their daily device away in the mail for three weeks. I suspect it will be limited and allow Apple to make maximum profit, but of course, they are good at their job and that is their ultimate job in this capitalist society.

    • @Louis Rossmann I can just speak of my experience. I have little interest in being called an idiot for minimal results. I still try to support the community, to a point where I can add to the conversation, but try not to get too deep. As I said in one of my comments, there are very few people like this and IRL experience is limited to a couple of times (thus making is exceedingly rare), but enough to push me away. I however will do what I can to support people better at dealing with that than me. That said, I am still on your discord server and still join when anything major happens tho because it is exciting! Guess what I am trying to say is I love most of the people in the community, what they do and try to support as long as it is not to my detriment. Edit: thanks for taking the time to respond, my English grammar ain’t the best so it can be hard to understand what I type lol. Edit 2: just to add I still repair my own stuff but atm am far too busy to do workshops etc, that is my own limitation and not a fault of anyone else.

    • @Prateek Chawla It's hard for me to imagine most of the people you are talking about as toxic exist in real life. Most of that is youtube comments. You are more than welcome to come by one of these free workshops I do to meet them in person. You have groups of people with different experience levels all looking to fix their own stuff or learn, with the more experienced people tutoring the less experienced. And many of them come with their own macbooks! I haven't had a single bad experience in nay of the repair workshops I have done in person or streamed. 99.999% of the negativity is comments section stuff from people who would never say that crap in real life. If you can't come to one, try setting one up in your local community so you can meet them for yourselves!

  • Agree. Good first step. I am encouraged by the improved repairability of the new MBPs based on iFixit's disassembly video. But, cost and variety of parts and documentation will be what tells us how serious they are about this. At the moment Authorized repair shops have to charge ridiculous prices if they use Apple parts. If that doesn't change, they've made a meaningless gesture. We'll know very quickly if they are sincere or not.

I haven't broken a phone I've owned in over 10 years so I've never needed to repair one. I just never liked their business practices. I felt the same way about samsung as they want to be the "Apple" of Android. I just don't like companies taking advantage of consumers but really that's just the way of the world today. But remember, they can only get away with what you allow them to. So I suggest you hold all these companies feet to the fire.

And profit margins for example Samsung as a direct competitor is nearly the same( in phone market) so it’s not like every other company earns 2% profits off of their business and Apple earns 600%. Did you get what I mean now!?

      Bo4 EliteBo4 Elite2 أشهر قبل
    • @It's Yaboi A-Dub Except you’re forgetting that less than 1% of users actually fix their own devices. Apple hating sheep like you are the reason Apple gets bad rep in the first place. You complain about Apple being anti-repair, yet complain when Apple actually allows self-repair. In recent years, Apple has actually listened to their consumers and many of their products that seemed “overpriced” actually got to the point where they’re significantly better than the competition whilst being cheaper. So, there’s ZERO chance Apple is going to charge 200-300%, you just pull numbers out of your ass to try and demonize Apple. I don’t know who brainwashed you with the notion that Apple tries to milk money out of their customers when they’ve literally done the opposite.

It's great that Apple is doing this, but maybe they want people to damage their phones so they have to buy a new one? It's great news for us who does this for a living, but if you don't know or feel 100% confident don't go poking around in your phone.

    • @werundwarum “Small percentage” based on what statistics? As we all know, most people are not tech savvy, that means most people don’t know that they’re getting ripped off by a 3rd party. They think they saved a bunch of money instead of going with Apple, but nope! Oh you broke your state-of-the-art OLED display? Here’s a shltty LCD display from China. So, you’re saying 3rd party companies that do agree to their terms are given OEM components, great so there are 1,500 3rd parties across Europe, the United States, and Canada that have OEM parts! Lastly, it’s not like 3rd parties fixed anything related to the motherboard… otherwise that would require an extremely specialized person that alone costs hundreds of dollars. When Apple fixes issues like that, they literally go with a 3rd party… hence the supposed “insane” prices that push Apple to recommend a new iPhone.

      catboycatboy2 أشهر قبل
    • @catboy do some research before talking shit about bad 3rd party repair. There is always a small percentage of bad repairs same goes for buggy apple products and especially their software. check out Louis Rossmann. Apple doesn’t sell parts to 3rd party repair shops if you don’t sign their terms/nda and do only what they want you to repair, basically just whole screen assembly and battery. No ports, smd components, ....

A company should not have absolute control and monopolization of our technology because that would naturally lead to huge exploits that negatively impacts the people. It also creates a future generation that's more technologically illiterate. For speaking your mind and encouraging truthful dialogue on this topic. We all thank you. 👍

Bottom line is that I own a 8 Plus and have replaced Battery that was very "replacement friendly", wasn't sure what to go for next, but now it's clear that my next phone will be 13 Max. And Apple business case should be built on the fact that they will loose on the short run (because now instead of a new phone, we can replace specific faulty components) but for sure they will win in the long run, as more and more customers will switch to iPhones. They will afford loosing some existing customers, but making sure they will buy the model 3-4 years from now.

Would you still want to replace your phone screen at the price point? I guess not so the next option is you rather get a new iphone rather. So its a win win for them. Overprice parts to discourage repairs so that getting a new iphone rather looks more attractive.

Its a win for Apple in every turn , if you buy the overpriced screen thats money to them or buy a new iphone thats even more money to them.

    • It's Apple trying to stop REAL CHANGE back to customers Right To Own. Having the control over the parts, when THEY don't manufacture them is just another way of playing Monopoly. Also, if they were to be ANY seriously about it, they wouldn't open the gates with the iPhone 12 and 13. They would allow the devices that MOST need repair AT THIS MOMENT. So, I'm pretty sure Apple is yet again trowing sand at Regulatory Entities and Customers eyes in order to keep things pretty much as they are.

  • I have a mixed reaction to this. Much of the advance that Apple recently made is due to the fact that the system is more integrated, we all gain from it, and I don’t want to see a step backwards in performance. On the other hand, I understand the importance of making the repair more accessible. Another thing that worries me is security. iPhones are wallets and identity documents, security is fundamental. Would security be compromised with repairability?

  • On the surface it seems exciting, but that is what we thought about the Independent Repair Program, and look how that turned out. I don't understand why a lot of media I've seen is so positive about this new program. There will obviously be a factor that will prevent consumers from using it. Maybe it will cost more or the same as sending your device into apple. Maybe you'll have to sign a concerning contact. Maybe you'll have to open your device twice (once to get a number and the second to repair it when the new component arrives). Ring a bell? You are right, it is a glaring PR stunt, and it gives apple's lawyers talking points against right to repair. Apologies for the rant. I'm very confrontational about right to repair.

In my opinion, this is good as an example to other brands to follow suit - as they Definitely will. Secondly, they also seem to be treating customers as individuals with options and not insulting their intelligence by running essentially a dictatorship/ monopoly on repairs. Don't get me wrong, while main areas are covered, it definitely still needs work, but let's hope apples heart is in the right place and follow through with that. Personally anything beyond the screen, batter and cameras should be handled professionally and/ or with the right equipment, but the option is never bad. Hopefully the follow samsung in also offering services that come to you to repair devices and offer ORM parts via their website.

  • the purpose of a repair is to hopefully restore a product to its optimal state, saving money in the process w/o breaking the bank (purchasing a completely new product). If the repair program concept is a "good first step" but "ultimately" leading to inflated prices (due to ability to repair) ,then I feel this company's process is just to stay under the radar & legal pressure while pursuing the bottom line. Take a fast food chain for example. Renovations to the building, kiosks added to the order line for efficiency, etc. Food quality stays the same, yet the prices keep inflating over the unmodified food--bottom line?
