Apple: We stopped giving you chargers when you spend $1,000 on our phones because...we love the environment. Also Apple: We made it almost impossible to replace a screen on an otherwise fine phone because...we hate the environment?

​@Andrej Cupac - Because with each new generation of phones, the power requirements are changing, usually requiring more amps and different power management. So an old brick may not work optimally with a new phone. When you spend over $1,000 for a phone, I'd expect a new charger in the box, period.

@Dinervc i'm not stupid, i know samsung and most other companies followed suit soon after. but thats the problem. they're copying what apple does. first the companies mock apple to help them gain trust and soon after they do the same. but apples the spark but also dont think im completely against apple. heck, if you looked at what i own you'd probably think im an apple fanboy with the amount of apple stuff i have. i guess what im trying to say its that both are guilty and we shouldn't just blame one company. bear in mind i am the absolute worst person to explain stuff so theres a 1% chance you actually understood what im trying to say

In the UK, a new “right to repair” law is expected to be introduced this summer. Details are sketchy on which appliances are covered. However, it is proposed that manufacturers will be legally obliged to make spare parts for products available to consumers for the first time. A legal right to repairs in order to extend a product’s lifespan to 10 years.

The minute you lift a car to work on it, you run the risk of dropping it on yourself and die. From that point, any safety concern is just an excuse to stop us repairing OUR stuff. I'm just waiting for ev conversions to get more accessible and then get over dealing with car compagnies once and for all.

yeah, I can understand but just imagine that you use some shitty Chinese battery for your damaged apple battery you may face some severe consequences. But apple should allow the selling of parts to some verified and skilled repair people without any tax or anything. but the cars shouldn't be modified for safety reasons.

The problem of viewing an increase in quality with an increase in complexity is that the complexity is not from quality, the complexity is from Apple and similar companies realizing that minimalist aesthetic drives profits. There is nothing saying that your Iphone couldn't be 5% larger and use the extra space to make the components much more reparable. And not only that, there are videos out there showing that if you take two identical IPhones and swap the screens and logic boards in them, they gain artificial glitches and malfunctions because Apple has installed serial numbers into the software of the phone that allows it to detect when anything has been swapped, even for identical apple produced parts. All those glitches and malfunctions seem to magically go away when you put the factory parts back in. The increase in complexity is not an accident and it's not from quality. It's done on purpose solely to drive profits.

This made me think about some Chinese products I have lol. Like, we had a chinese vacuum cleaner robot break the other day, and repairing it was the easiest thing ever. We bought the spare pieces the needed changing, watched a video on how to do it and just fixed it no problem. Now the robot is as good as new lol. Now when we want to repair other stuff, specially from big companies in the US, it's all a crazy mess. Most of the time you are supposed to call them to take the product and fix it. And when you try to do it yourself, you find out that their products are made in a very unintuitive way on purpose, so you can't fix it. Plus buying spare pieces is a nightmare. It sucks.

When talking about Right to Repair and Apple it's important to mention that there are numerous cases where apple says that in order to repair your phone they would have to replace so many components that it would be cheaper to buy a new phone. When in reality all they would have to is remove some corrosion on a connector. They are not only making it harder to repair the phone yourself, they are literally lying to you when you ask them to repair it. Additionally, they now pair all the components in a phone with each other so that, even when you get the exact same genuine replacement component, the phone would refuse to accept it and not function properly. It's a really evil corporation but people are like "oh shiny, bling, nice!"

@RainbowNebula As someone who has used both androids and ios phones, I’d say, they both slowed badly. Iphone 4 and samsung S4, from my family’s experience were not the best and were unoptimised for later software However, samsung at least did not slow down the phones without consumer’s knowledge (to my knowledge) and that is where Apple shadily did that to consumers. Now though? I can ROM hack a samsung S8 from 2017 to android 11 and it would run ok (thought dubious security since roms are usually unauthorised) and I have updated an iphone 5S to ios 12 and it still runs ok. So I think you are just not updated with the progression of tech and software, or you just knowingly stated something that is false.
cazaventa 9 meses atrás
@Andrei Tache I share your stance I guess. Apple products are ok, for the most part. In 2021, I finally consider the iphones they make on par with Android phones. But apple’s anti-right to repair stance (I’m sure you’d agree) is the main reason that this iPhone 11 might be the last Apple product I get for a while. it’s slightly dated, yes, it’s somewhat overpriced, yea, but it is an ok phone for a middle class user imho. I don’t know what phone company I’d check out next, but most likely it would be Xiaomi or going back to Samsung. I would not trust that my iphone wouldnt get bricked from a 3rd party repair, and my only other option is to go to Apple and get my phone fixed for the price of a liver…

OK, so this is one of the best presentations on right to repair I have seen. You also called in probably the foremost expert in this arena for this video. However, I think you did a disservice by painting right to repair as the only way to save the environment, and calling out Apple and others for not being green by rejecting it. What Apple has done, and I know you know this, is made their devices incredibly recyclable. They have also implemented trade in programs. They want the device to be part of the lifecycle and have new life in a future device by being able to return the devices to the materials from which they came. Now, people just throwing their old device in the garbage that doesn't work anymore, is a purely human problem - that isn't directly caused by Apple. I am not using this to defend them. I am a huge believer in right to repair, but it just feels one sided to highlight that problem in that specific way only. Apple has a different vision for a device lifecycle and they are not encouraging people to just toss their device every year in some modern bout of consumerism. Could they do more? Absolutely. I do see them at least trying to offset their impact though. This is the same company that defends taking charging cables away not to promote eWaste.

This was a really awesome video 😃 The iPhone 12 (Red) that's used for making this vid is totally just like mine, my 1st iPhone (&favourite new phone experience) this makes me appreciate it even more now. Seeing the tensor chip, battery and even screen removal process was seriously neat, so thank you 🙏🏽 I think a screen should definitely be sold, by Apple for making quick repairs yourself. I believe that'd be an environmentally friendly alternative, even if they sold it for 150$ or something, that'd be really cool! Apple makes incredible screens, + with the dBrand screen protector and one of Apple's MagSafe cases it's pretty tough. My goal is to make it to iPhone 16-18 release before thinking of buying a new phone And side note: With my vehicle, which I rarely drive (I bike and walk pretty much everywhere)it has a recall notice. So I called today, and ask if I can get it in this Friday.. bruuuh, I'm scheduled for February (3 months from now) and it's for a SOFTWARE UPDATE, LOL! How much is this process gonna cost the company.. they should have at least thought to design it with the ability for users to update the software, either manually or automatically. & The rear-view camera needs a fix, they wanna charge top shelf $.. and I'm like, "Can you at least put a camera in that's like this year's tech, c'mon" or what about "Sell me the camera (preferably newer tech than ~10years old) and I install it"

But I also think he will not convince most people to consider R2R without people like MKBHD or Zack (Jerryrig) backing this. Louis is the backbone, they can be the face.

I too agree that we need to have Right to Repair, because first at all we still Buy the products and not Rent the products. Repairing your stuff isn't something bad, we will have less waste around. But the problem with repair is that many companies are pushing high prices for the parts, I have seen a lot of waste because for many people is easier and cheaper to Buy a new thing instead to Repair it. I think the stuff around us should me more accessible and easier to maintain, right of repair is a right of someone's personal choice. Also right of repair should be a more moral question, If we repair something is that going to be safe and good for the others around, for the people, nature, etc. I'm very very glad because many started to talk about this 😀 I and I love how Marques and Louis talk open about this questions 👍👍👍

@Dishant Seth Louis Rossman has an example where a simple charging chip has been replaced by something similar in function but proprietary that does exactly the same thing, and no longer possible to buy because Apple doesn't permit the manufacturer to do so. So now he has to get them off otherwise dead donor boards. The next step in total control is to have the computer communicate with the chip for a unique passcode. This has also been implemented in some cases so that swapping out from a dead board wouldn't work either.

Ok, I usually don't comment on BRvid videos, but this is an awesome topic. Regarding the safety argument, I honestly think it could be used in the company's disadvantage (considering Brazilian law, and I believe laws from many other countries, from what I studied). I can honestly see a court ruling that if a company goes that far to protect the product from the owner, if the owner succesfully makes a change to the product and there is an accident or something similar, the company should also be held liable, since they took it as their responsibility to "babysit" the owner. A simple analogy would be a website where you can leave comments. If the company evaluates the comments before they are published, if any comment generates a problem (such as being racist), the company could also be held liable, since it analyzed the comment and decided it was okay. That is one of the reasons companies try to not intervene that much in some aspects, even if technically the could, since this would help avoid liability.

You can "try" to repair your iphone, but Apple has gone out of their way to stop you. Say you broke your screen and wanted to change it, and you have a friend who's willing to give you their original iphone to take the screen from, since they got a new one. You do the repair correctly, but you find that touch ID/true tone stop working for you now. Even though you used original parts and did the repair correctly. ONLY because apple chose to disable these features so that if the software doesn't detect the exact part number it was shipped with, it soft locks these features. Are you free to repair in this case? You did everything right and still end up with a worse device, which would make you want to upgrade more.

It a failed term. The right to repair is more about having access to schematics and documents that assist with a repair to anyone who is willing to troubleshoot their product and fix it with parts that are unavailable to purchase or are locked down when you get a used part and still won’t work because you can’t pair it with the software. It should be called the landfill act

@Sam has a BRvid channel i imagine the "custom tools" they're referring to are things like pentalobe/triwing screw drivers for undoing screws on phones or like the logic board removal tool for macbooks. im arrogant enough to think that is precisely what they are talking about and theres nothing special about them other than they're marginally more difficult to find
Sam has a YouTube channel
@Julio Francisco Guillen Oliveira well it was a separate non Apple store, the guy obviously was just as annoyed as we were and understood our frustrations. The way he said it, Apple gives them custom tools and only allows them to repair with those

one time i went to my apple store to replace my iphone and the genius bar employee literally had the back of his iphone shattered and said "you know, it's too expensive to repair it so i might as well just wait for the next one". he didn't even have apple care because it's so expensive. and he repairs iphones for a living.

You can always repair any smartphone or any appliances or product yourself once the manufacturer warranty is over and if you have not paid them for any extended warranty or any care plan, so then since the product is out of warranty any user or consumer can decide whether to repair the product themselves or via third party companies who give you a warranty with the replaced product or replace the product at the company certified service center. All of this totally depends on how much you want to spend on the replacement or repair ( your budget) and the amount risk involved in any of those three methods. As far as Right to repair goes, you just have to wait for the manufacturer warranty to finish, then you can do whatever you want to do with the product, because once the manufacturer warranty is over they legally cannot force you to get the product repaired at their service center. It is then totally the consumer or users choice on how he wants to get his product repaired or replaced.

So as I've always experienced it, you can repair your stuff, though the warranty will be done for if you do. Normally its hard to get the proper parts for a repair but if you're handy you can make it work most of the times. Improvisation is the key. I think it is wrong being more of less forced to buy new instead of repair and companies repair services should be more accessible.
Top Tier Tech

See but “improvisation” doesn’t work when you’re talking about things like CPUs and charger ports. If you legally can’t get those items then you can’t repair it. The iPhone 13 will disable faceid if you replace the screen. Even if you just swap 2 iPhone 13 screens. They’re serialized to prevent you from doing it yourself

I am glad this topic was brought up. Although a lot more challenges before we settle on a fine balance. But at least we (consumers) got the discussion started 🙂
As they are the most privacy-forward, secure mobile platform, I think Apple being like this is not just to lock out third parties, I think it is to ensure security. You never know what a third party repair person might do. Most may be good, most may just do a good job, but some, might install things that should not be there for any number of nefarious reasons. So, I think it is not about screwing third party repair shops, I think it is more to keep security for the end user & single-party accountability.

Very good video. I would fall on the side of wanting legislation that precludes manufacturers from OEMing parts to the point of exclusion for a vibrant repair market place. I would further want the legislation that guaranties that consumables be changeable (batteries) and that high-probability repairs (cracked screens) to have a design requirement that ensure a fast repair. As for Tesla's claims about user-safety...they are pure BS. People have been modding cars (not just bodies but engine components, on out) since cars have been around. And, people have indeed hurt/killed themselves on their work. So be it. That isn't the manufacturer's responsibility (I wouldn't hold Tesla or any other car company responsible for a user modification. Your example of a speed limit isn't valid because it isn't a restriction of the use of your car. It is a restriction of the use of a PUBLIC road. If you have a private road or can wind your car up as fast as you want. As for printers and counterfeit money, that has its own set of laws and one does not have the right to print money.
Lepi Doptera

A federal judge would invalidate such a law in a day. It doesn't gel with the usual reading of the US Constitution. Tesla's argument is not that you can't modify a Tesla. They are simply telling you that they won't repair your car once you do. That is their right because if they do repair the car after you messed it up, then they become legally responsible for its safety, again. As soon as you touch it, they are off the hook completely. Nor should you want to mess with a car that gets regular software upgrades over the air. The software makes certain assumptions about the car's hardware. If your mod does not fall within the limits of those assumptions, bad things can happen that neither you nor Tesla can predict. This was, of course, never a problem before OTA technology came into play. Whoever changed a non-OTA car the last time could rely on it staying the same that it was at the time of the mod. That's not the case any longer.

I agree with a lot of what you said. Here are my thoughts on the matter. Regarding the hazards of taking things apart; Yes it is "dangerous" to take electrical things apart, especially if it contains large capacitors that can store a lot of current. This is especially important when working on a power supply. The quick fix is having some basic information about electronics and the right tools. A person new to repairing could then read about how to safely discharge large capacitors and then it's perfectly safe to work with (when not plugged in a wall outlet). But here is the beauty of right to repair. If more people were more used to repairing their own equipment, they would share it freely on social media or other online platforms. Books are also a good source when it comes to repairing electrical devices. Tools are very cheap now and a lot of devices use SMD components that are soldered with hot air. It's do-able but takes practice to it yourself. I wish I could repair my own devices easier because I think I already create too much e-waste as things are now. It's so expensive to get parts that it's easier to just buy a new phone and it's sad. My dad's old computer was 25 years old when he retired it, and it was still working at that time. Now you can barely have any electrical device last more than 5 years. It can't be good for the environment. I think it's also up to us to settle with having an older phone model and not the latest tech all the time. The device is still serving a purpose. I dabbled with repairing my own things and sometimes I manage to fix it. I fixed my 10 year old television that was still going strong. I managed to fix it with the help of russian BRvid videos that was translated on the fly and I had enough information to repair my TV to a working state. I eventually replaced it but just repairing it added at least 2 years of it's life span. I took to a communal garbage disposal facility so it's taken apart and exposed of properly in a safely manner. Try to repair things before throwing them away is not only fun, but good for the environment. You are learning a new skill! What's not to love c'mon?!

You own things that break down/consumed over time. The creation of software created the need to protect things that don’t explicitly require maintenance. So instead of teaming up the human race and creating a permanent infrastructure of programs we can all share and use to make the world a better place we decided to protect our personal individual interests to sell a product. Good job.

And yet Apple made iphone 13 impossible to repair by a 3rd party... if you change the display with a swapped display from literally another brand new iphone 13... face id stops working. Face id has literally nothing to do with the display... but our friend Apple, just wrote the face id info to the display, giving a huge middle finger to 3rd party reapir shops. This has nothing to do with tech getting harder to repair, this is a deliberate attempt from Apple to make you have no other choice than to make them the only option to repair your devices... for an unreasonable amount of money... A display costs Applr 60 usd to produce, yet they ask 300 for a repair, idk the repair price for the i13, but you get the idea.

oh yes thanks marquees someone finally talks about the mess tech is making with the pile of chips trash. I always tried to repair everything first before taking to some technician, just to learn and as a challenge. At first I destroyed everything, then I studied and work repairing computers and printers and you start to see other things like sticker to avoid repairs and get consumer scared to do it or take to a not official repair shop. I think I fixed my last 3 or 4 phones, broken screens, batteries, charger port, audio, etc. Just searching and with youtube videos. We can ask for modular designing too, but al least rights to repair. I think this is a time where things are getting that small that space allow to make things a lot better. Take Imac or Ipads for example with the m1 chip also there is enough space to get things to be upgradable. But they don't want and we need put the word out to become this an important thing to be aware. Thanks for your time you have a great channel and great content. have a great day!

@Glitching I’ve been jumping back and forth between iOS and Android for years until 2017. I’ve had flagship LG, Samsung, and Xiaomi phones. I dropped them for the XS max when it released. A lot of people talk about apples poor battery life and cheap build, yet fail to note that even the a13 chip made 2 years ago is faster and better with battery consumption than most androids on the market today. And the a14 isn’t even touched in any aspect. And with Apple having stainless steel frames, they’re far more durable than they used to be. Sure ui could be more customizable but at this point, that’s all there is to argue. Samsung sells 1k+ dollar devices and they still don’t tell you if you get a SD888 chipset or an exynos chipset which performs leagues under the SD model. That’s pretty shady in my book.

Another thing that crossed my mind is reverse-engineering. Tesla gets away with making a machine that is unique in its class, and the tech in there is unique to that company. If you can repair it, then you can build a replica, and the ability to do that could be a reason why companies are so restrictive when it comes to repairing stuff. If you think about Apple with their touch displays, that technology would have been unique to them for a long time before others caught up which would have given them a monopoly on those things and they would have always been ahead, but their first iPhone was repairable such that a company like Samsung could replicate the technology and make their own version. I'm pretty sure they were in a court dispute for years over this. So someone like Louis Rossman might want to repair things from a business perspective, but someone more nefarious might use the right to repair to steal a company's hard work and sell it as their own. We see this a lot in China with knockoff versions of everything. I do believe we should have the right to repair things, but it's something worth thinking about.

Great topic, well executed! Thnx for brining this to our attention. One more thought on your last point, companies invest so much on great engineers because they want to make everything more integrated, not just for the product to work better, but also to be more complicated to be repaired. I don't see any problem with a phone battery being removable, and can be easily done by the companies, but they give no proper explanation why that can't be done except maybe "waterproofing".

I suppose that we have the right to steal as well. The complexity of repairing is breaking the black market of having your phone stolen for a use of spare parts, I never felt so much confident with the shiny new phone, that nobody will try to rob me for, as in the past - getting bullied just for your middle class nokia. To decrease carbon waste, and improve repairability - responsibility of the big companies need to be increased from 1 year of warranty to at least 3 or 5 years for logic circuits and batteries. Prices for repair need to be reduced to a lowest as possible, as companies make their earnings from the services more and more, rather from the old good devices that are still runs perfectly, and not need to be renewed.
