18:49 Man that killed it. Thank you so much for covering this. This was beautiful. I completely get that lots of people consider youtube their profession, and their job - and rightfully so, you all do amazing work. and that making a video like this can make it more difficult to get access to products or early looks at products into the future, given almost every company has a very anti-right to repair stance. I can't tell you how much I appreciate you putting your living on the line to talk about this. I hope others appreciate it too. THANK YOU!!!!

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?

@Matt Gurnicz true, everybody just likes to brag. me personally i buy a phone because i like it, not to show it off. i totally agree with you

@Andrej Cupac m1 is in laptops. And yes on synthetic benchmarks they are the fastest. But pretty much any flagship phone released after 2018 is fast enough. Even my 2017 Pixel 2 can run mobile games on ultra quality at nearly 60 frames per second, so it's about bragging rights more than anything else anymore.

@Matt Gurnicz i wouldn't say years behind. because apart from the screen, they iPhones still destroy every other phone in terms of video quality, battery life, and speed. its the fastest phone on the market by far with apples new M1 chip. you can see battery and speed comparisons online

@Matt Gurnicz im 99% sure that 90 hertz isn't a standard spec. obviously its possible but im saying 90 hertz or adding any other spec that isn't standard would mean they need to invest in a new set of chips and the right timing and a bunch of other tech to put it all together (manufacturing anything in general that is non-standard costs more as the tech isn't used very often). i would say they should have put 120hz in all models, but they didn't because they want to force people into buying the top of the range models. pretty sad
Matt Gurnicz

@Andrej Cupac apple iphone 13 is 60 Hz. You need the pro models for 120. Scum that they are, they couldn't even make the base model 90 Hertz. Chances are next year is big "upgrade" Will be to include 90 or 120 hertz on the base model on the vanilla 14. Either way, years behind everyone else.

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.

Would you give up on your waterproof to have a removal back so you can swap the battery yourself, like we used to do for a long time? I definitely would. I never had water damage on any phone I've used so far, but I did need a battery replacement. It would be nice to have some screwable cameras that can be swapped, or even upgraded. It would be nice to have a system that can release the screen, so you can swap it on your own. I mean, it's 100% doable, I'm sure any of these phone companies could come up with something like this. Preventing you (or all of the repair shops) to repair your device should be punished by law (or by us, not buying their shitty phones). These companies are making fun of us in the past few years. Even with the charging brick going away. I had to buy a different brick from Amazon that had a cardboard box AND came into another cardboard box and some bubble wrap. Now that's ecological. You can't repair it, it costs more than a used car, they easily break and they record everything you say and sell those info to advertisers. And you guys worry about Huawei spies :)))

@Owesh Diwan Video I saw yesterday, the guy unboxed two identical iPhone 13 Pro's, opened them up, and swapped some parts. And the phones would not run with Apple's own parts swapped between phones. Apple doesn't want you repairing phones because it takes away repair and replacement revenue from Apple.

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!"

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.

@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.
qavfeva 2 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…

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.

Fantastic video! I think there’s also an aspect worth mentioning, that the process and policies these private companies are implementing entrench extremely unfair and unethical labour practices. You can’t choose to go to an ethical manufacturer of a part for example. Further a private company issuing fines should be illegal. Private companies have perverse profit motives to squash competition. It’s batshit fucking crazy to me that you can put that into a contract.

Thank you for taking a stand with right to repair! We more people on this. My brother’s TV set just died. He was able to detect the problem is in the power supply and that there is a problem with one transformer. I went a repair shop just in my building and asked them to test it. They said they are not able to do that because they cannot get their hands on a spec sheet for it. If they don’t know what to look, they cannot even test things. They told me that 20 years ago that spec sheet would be really easy to get. They’d just ask it to the manufacturer, because they are a authorized repair shop. Right now, they just can’t do it. LG just told them they would have to change the entire power supply, costing hundreds of €, making it too expensive to repair, when this repair should cost about 25€ in parts and my brother has the skills to do it himself! This is bad for everyone, including the environment.

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"

Yeah.. except he's not. He delivers a very censured, family friendly, and most of all, company friendly version of critique. Because he is smart enough to understand how far he can go, while simultaneously not lose his main bulk of subs. Which is the opposite of Louis Rossman, which subscriber count only amounts to 1/9th for the same reason, though not the only reason of course. But Marques and the other tech big cheese reviewers have a problem that Louis don't. They have to be quite nice to the manufacturers to get free product samples to review, otherwise they'd have to buy them, themselves. Which of course they could afford np. But if you don't have to, you usually go that route. Though the manufactures that understand that any press exposure is good exposure, if you just can spin it. They don't care of course and send their products anyways. But Apple and Tesla is quite different. And I guess you can add John Deere and a bunch of others to that list too!😉

@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.

Just buy other phones which are cheaper and easier to repair. If this comes out then all those pro consumer companies which are already making good phones would have been for nothing. You are not just giving up your rights but you are also telling the competition that no matter how consumer friendly they are you wont buy their phone. Its extremely anti competitive.

Thanks for the video! While it asks for a regulation for the "right to repair", after watching this video it is still unclear to me what you are actually asking for. No one can stop us repairing our iPhone, right? If we can open it up and do whatever we want with it, isn't it already a "right to repair"?

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

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 👍👍👍

@Tom Stevens 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.

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

Wow! What a great job you did here. Thanks. Keep up the fight for us small independent repair shops. It helps us help you. BUT! Think about this: If I were Apple and BIG GOVERNMENT came in between me and MY capitalism, MY freedom to run MY business how I want to - I would go ahead and make available ALL the repair tools and components and even training that independent repair shops wanted - but the design and construction of my product would begin to make repair no longer economically viable. The world is still an ugly place, everything is unfair, no safe spaces, I get to give everyone the middle finger including my precious loyal customer fan boys...and your grandchildren's planet Earth gets converted into wealth in MY bank account. I do not see how we can make government make everything fair for us. THIS IS A FREE COUNTRY! Tesla does NOT stop me from making my own open EV. Apple cannot stop me from making my own sexy hip throw away $1,600 phone of the day alternative that is repairable.

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.

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.
