eevBLAB 97- Is Apple Serious About Right To Repair? (The Verge)

(1/27) > >>

EEVblog:
The Verge just took Apple to task over their new authorised repair tools and manuals and parts as part of Right to Repair. Are they giving Apple a fair suck of the sav?

This whole thing is just malicious compliance. Nobody wanted that. All we need is for the non-apple service centers to be able to repair the phones.

iPad Rehab did a comprehensive overview of this kit. One of the biggest gotchas there is that after you replace the screen you have to agree to a EULA stating that you allow apple to get all your data from the phone. And if you don't like that, you are stuck.

But yes, the price of the equipment is actually surprisingly low.

High time that user-replacable batteries were mandatory in phones, you should need no tools except a screwdriver at most.  Having to go through all that extreme disassembly just to replace a cell, madness.

I agree wiht the last part.
I wouldn't call releasing your repair manuals and selling your in-house repair jigs at very low prices "malicious compliance" though. It's simply not enough, and as you say not really want people wanted.

Does Apple ship outside USA. E.g. EU.
