iPhone 12 Anti Repair Design - Teardown and Repair Assessment

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?

      @Marco De Amos Stop trying to justify the actions of a corrupt company that only wants money. Also when they make it so the phones can't be repaired they are able to charge people unbelievable amounts of money for the company to fix it or they can charge the customer for buying a new phone. WHile it is their phone and their company, what they are doing is borderline monopoly, which is actually illegal in many countries especially their biggest buyer America.

    I mean, what to expect from Apple? They just want to make more $$$. While they say they want to save the environment and cutting waste, how? By rendering 2 million chargers and cables unusable!? Then they build new centers and storage locations. They are just cutting manufacturing cost and raising cost of the device. In the end, it's all about making even more $$$ than they already do. One new iPhone literally cost a low income salary now. If you live in a country where they ad taxes upon taxes, a iPhone 12 can cost upwards $2000.

    Not being able to repair and reuse a phone seems to make more freakin waste. Apple charges almost the full price to repair their products after warranty expires, which means you may as well throw it away and buy a new one. WASTE. Except in Apples wallet. It’s about money not the environment

    Replaces an Apple Component with another Apple Component; Phone: Component is not genuine. That's the biggest Red Flag in the history of Red Flags. The phones are literally unrepairable if something goes wrong, becuase it won't recognise their own parts.

  43. Dantastic


    Acum 4 ore

    The only reasonable reason I can think of for them to lock it down so much is to prevent unscrupulous refurbishers from fixing the phone with substandard parts and then you buy it from them and it performs poorly and you blame Apple for something that isn't their fault and your opinion of their quality is inaccurate. Why the parts need to be serialized to the phone such that even genuine apple parts don't work seems to go too far though.

    Pretty confident it's not just iPhone. Apple is going to implement this into ALL their products. They've even moved away from Intel-based CPUs to ARM, meaning Mac gamers cannot play Intel-based games without jumping through many hoops. Some devs, like Bethesda, said The Elder Scrolls Online wouldn't support ARM CPUs. Apple doesn't want a walled garden; they want a walled prison!

    This is exactly why I will not buy another Apple product again. I have been in IT for 20 years now and I have repaired many phones over that time as well. When it comes to earlier iPhones, they were easy, but now, when someone brings me a new iPhone, I tell them that I can not fix it because I just don't have the equipment. I push them to go to any other brand so they don't come across this again.
