Apple says they are aiming for zero climate impact by 2030.
So to me that says a device should be able to be repaired when the time comes to, preventing it from becoming e-waste. But is that true?

Great video! Very in depth. Apple should be allowing repairs. I'd even be fine if they 'locked' repairs untill after the warranty expires, but after that people should be allowed to fix devices that they own.

I wasn't aware of this until I got my S21 FE 5G. Had an S9 for the last 4 years. Got the new phone, just absurd to not include the adapter with a phone that costs nearly $1000. I don't have a wall adapter with USB C, so an extra thing to buy for faster charging after spending a lot for a new phone. Disappointing.

Apple is forgetting that when someone buys their product, the product belongs to that person, not to Apple. Me and my family were always Apple users but I’m genuinely considering moving to Android.

If you're not committed to moving to android yet, you never will be. What will crApple have to do? Force you to insert your phone in your anus to unlock it? They are going to start opening spying on you. Besides, moving to Android is easy. Even if you have $2k in apps (and I doubt you do), half of those apps don't even work anymore, and of the remaining half, you don't use half of THOSE. Of the remaining apps, you use maybe 10% max of those apps every day. Worst case scenario, you're dropping $200-500 in Google play over the next 3-4 years. Even if you doubled that, it's still less than the cost of a new iPhone, which you just saved over the next release, because your new Android will continue to work perfectly for the next 5 years if you take care of it. MAKE. THE. SWITCH. Your family, too.

@myhax3 Fairphone seems fine in my book, haven't gotten one yet though. They're supposed to be fully repairable by the user/3rd party and also modular so you can upgrade without buying a new phone. Also bootloader is unlocked so you can put any kind of Os in them as long as it talks to the phone.

@Diogo P Shilling much uh. And not being able to handle a battery? Look at me with my Old samsung phone, just oppening the back and taking out the battery and back in again, and again! And look at that, doing it again. And the only complication in mobile phone repair is the ANTI-REPAIR complications added in. A battery swap can be the same, swapping a part for another can be the same. But compagnies don't want you to repair, they want you to buy the next product. Desktop PC are still fully upgradeable, and those are soo many more time powerfull than a mobile phone, how soo they don't need to be locked up? (and yes I looked at a modern engine. there is still way more metal, unless you mean the one that either power the sparks or connect to the engine control, which is a plug and play thing.) Taking away people freedom for "safety" is not the way. Give people the resources to learn about it and how to make it, and if they are too lazy or unable to do it themselves? Offer them a paid repair.

@Patriotic American Android is user friendly, mabye even more at certain areas, like accesing your files. Only time it isin't user friendly is when the provided UI is poop. But grab some android other than samsung as they recently too started going right down the no repair path. Grab a old LG phone even, those are pretty repair friendly.

“We aren’t including an adapter to reduce waste” Now we have to buy entire new cables so we can connect them to currently owned adapters, cars, and other such items. Thus making the cord they sent waste. Wonderful job Apple

@Michael Overholser Wrong. The point was if you're going to use an old adapter with an old cord, then having a new cord for which you'll never have a matching adapter means the new cord is, and always will be, waste for you. Unless the old cord breaks and then guess what? Ya gotta have a new adapter shipped separately. Meaning that extra packaging and transport energy is unnecessary waste, just like the video stated.

i worked at a repair facility. after replacing cameras, battery's and displays on iPhone, there was a process we had to perform on the phone to make the new part work with the device called calibration, which was basically updating the serial numbers of the parts with the serial number of the phone. i think the lack of this process has something to do with what you experienced in this video.

Lol hence proved , those are are some things deliberately used by Apple to make their own parts incompatible with one another unless and until you update their serial numbers. Seriously why do people buy Apple. The only line of products that are actually good are iPads and the latest m1 Macbooks. That m1 macbooks will also not last long as the rest of the processor industry will try to catch up on that ARM design
Carter Thiel

He has done display and battery calibration on devices before. The question in my eyes is, why do we as consumer even accept the premise that I need a to spend a couple hundred bucks on a recalibration tool (that will become obsolete next year) to fix the display or battery. Which are in my opinion, both consumable parts

@Seba i know people can get a phone cheaply, my point is the only reason Samsung, apple etc sell them at 1k etc is because they can, they seem to care more about the money. I think if they block any self repair from fixing any of their products, they will eventually have no one buying the products from them, other than wealthy people.

AND I LOVE THAT APPLE IS DOING THAT😁 As technology evolves more and more, it is no longer possible for non-specialized human beings to make their own repairs. a good example of this would be cars, 50 years ago it would have been perfectly possible for anyone to do a simple repair on their car! not nowadays (have you ever looked at a modern day engine there are more cables in sight than metal). such as, for example, making a small repair to an appliance does not present any risk to human beings, making a repair to a car, an appliance or any other object, may be involved in handling objects that we may not even know what they are or what they are for. example batteries and other hazardous fluids present in equipment.

@Ady my first phone was a samsung galaxy trend lite bcs my parents didn’t want to spend any money on me lmao. I was so dissapointed when my entire class had snap and insta and i wasnt allowed to… and even if i was i didn’t have a selfie camera. It died on me after half a year and became too slow to function with only whatsapp being used. My second phone was a motorola 3rd edition… decent phone… my parents bought an iphone 6+ for me on sale but made me wait a year before using it bcs ‘its so expensive it’ll get stolen aaaaa’. It lasted 6 years in total including the shelf year.. bought half an Xr. (my parents the other half since im jobless) My mom’s previous phone had problems.. my dad’s phone makes unexplainable noises, and my mom’s new phone barely gives any sound when she calls someone. (She can’t hear ppl) they both have samsung eventhough my dad is a motorola fan. I’m using apple for my sight as its most reccomended and easier to use than android… but I’m never going back to samsung tbh… (apple has better help functions when it comes to voice over, text size, etc. Android has them too to some extent but aren’t as usable. Apple is still preferred by the blind community, and even if I’m not completely blind I’m liking my apple… I won’t go for a macbook though, I’m trained to use windows and it’s too big of a change for me) It’s funny how so many ppl have so many different preferences, and how there are wars between the ‘fanbases’. In my opinion every phone is shit at some point xd. If there were any improvements made on the sight thing I’d be willing to go to android again… maybe Nokia, Xiaomi (if theyre sold here), oneplus, or motorola, or something along those lines… but I’ll refuse Sony due to the drop in quality, and Samsung bcs I see to many problems with it.. I’d also try for a phone that isn’t ran on google. Did I use ‘see’ ironically? Heck yes. I can only see 10% of what a normal human being sees.

@SpOtLeSs-MinD I think that in fact it was Jobs himself who send Apple onto this path. He always was a prick who treated his partners and later his employees like crap and had a habit of selling other peoples work as his own. And his true talent was not hardware engineering, but marketing and in that he was quite the genius, you have to give him that. He was quite the combination of marketing genius and unscrupulousness. It was Jobs who realised that the product can be crap and overly expensive, as long as people identify it as _lifestyle_ and this is exactly what Apple does.

I'm surprised to see they are only £19 which is still a lot for a charging brick, but quite cheap for something from Apple. I expected Apple to put a £45+ price tag on them.

I like Apple products. Their software is great and has far longer support than Android. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely have criticisms. And I’m not buying another iPhone for the very reason of repairability. Same reason I refuse to buy an electric car from Ford, GM, Nissan, or Tesla.

The moment I saw this phone as a kid (The first iphone), I knew something feels off. I remember seeing my uncle's very archaic pc to have itunes and other iphone pc apps that my normal phone can just drag and drop directly once connected to it. It was pretty weird to see that you need an app to store stuff or move music, because of security, I will give them credit for that. I was right to check if apple's gonna do something drastic, well...the earphone jack being wireless isn't as drastic for some but for me it was.

Somehow they need to keep the jobs, if everything would be designed to last as long as possible, repairable and upgraded, all the people who produce it would lose their jobs so their lives thanks to the artificial scarcity of the market system, unemployment exists only in the market system, under every other condition it is freedom, but in the market system it means dying homeless from hunger between empty rotting houses and stores overfilled with food that is disposed every day in bigger amounts than there are people who could eat it. It's about time to think further, the market system is the anti-economy and doesn't allow any economic development. Watch InterReflections, no conspiracy required.

There's a product that's made for iPhone repair to swap out a broken screen for a third party unbroken screen. It's a device by the name of the JC - 1V. The device is powered by your laptop or desktop computer. The device has connections on it from top to bottom that are the exact same connectors for the display flex cable that mimic the motherboard connections for that flex cable. The device is a read and write electronics that reads and copies the software data from the broken screen stores it then you remove the broken screen flex cable from the motherboard connection on the device. Then you take the new screen and it's flex cable and attach it to the same motherboard connection on the jc-1v. It will ask you do you want to write the data on to the new screen you tap yes. The data is now transferred to your new screen that will allow you to use facial recognition true tone and touch ID on your new unbroken third-party screen.

Considering the effects of swapping hardware, it's safe to assume that the hardware information is forced onto either the board itself or a small boot section on the main drive. Seeing as this info can be modified at stores ot "repair" the phone, I doubt it's difficult to access, and is most likely just hidden in a place most third-party repair services won't look. That said, if we were to find the source of this data, we could easily modify it (given we also know the required data for the new components) and successfully repair the device.

Literally one of the best financial decisions I've ever made and I don't think I'm ever gonna buy another iPhone ever again

The only things I would ever do with device part pairing would be the following: 1. Let Face/Touch ID work, but all data on them is wiped, so you have to set up new fingerprints/Face IDs. A test may also be needed to make sure it's not a spoofed ID or whatever. 2. Possibly perform a hardware scan to ensure the new parts are working properly. 3. Have it say somewhere that the device is refurbished and thank you for using a refurbished device instead of letting it go to e-waste.

@Nocturnal Pyro The original iPhone was revolutionary. Modern iPhones are in no way technological marvels. They are comparable to other phones with similar specs, only more expensive. If i manufacture a phone, it is my property up until the point that you buy it. As such what i do with it is none of your bussiness. The amount of fucking entitlement you have to feel to even have the audacity to suggest otherwise is frankly sickening.

Apple's view of right-to-repair was made clear in 2003 with the iPod. Once the battery died, Apple charged like $250 to replace it, making it slightly cheaper to buy a new iPod. They got shamed into changing that policy in favor of a more insidious approach we see here.

One reason why they might be doing this is to avoid the risk of malicious repair services putting compromised hardware in your system. I do not believe that should be enough reason, you should be able to repair it yourself if you are capable and if you don't trust third party repair services just go to apple. But of course that is not the reason.
