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.

    The Apple business model is definitely moving toward destroying third party repair and punishing there loyal customers in the process. If this product was a car and no repairs could be done outside of a dealership, they would never get a sale here in Australia and the department of fare trading would destroy them in day! 😡

    Well, the newer android phones are hard/ impossible to repair as well, from what I've heard. Been on android for a few years but they lost their advantage. They used to be cheaper and easier to repair. If I have to pay a similar price to an iPhone I'd rather just have an iPhone.

    This is how companies treat customers when they become the #1 or #2 in the market. They start coming up with bullshit excuses when the real purpose is to create more revenue by limiting the options consumers have. Seriously, when the F did u buy a phone that did not come with a charger? Won't be surprised if Samsung pull the same stunt.

    This has long been my biggest complaint with Apple products. They want to totally control and dictate how you should use your device in terms of software, apps, and parts. Remember when you upgraded to a new iPhone only to discover that your old USB charger wasn't compatible with the new phone? Things like that are really annoying. Then there's the case of having to pay a whopping 50 dollars for a charger that Android users would only pay 20 bucks. Apple's list of offences are endless. But at the end of the day it all boils down to greed. Apple is greedy. Sure, they make awesome products. But id much rather have the freedom you get with Android phones.

    Terrible. Its unbelievable that we have gotten to the point that, even using genuine repair parts, the manufacturer has doomed you to fail in your repair. I totally disagree with any company that does this. Sure, they need to offer their own repair service; and lets face it, the majority of people will use it for the assurance and convenience; but monopolizing repair and preventing the use of any other options, EVEN with the correct parts and techniques, should be prohibited by law.

Not able to fix your f*cking delicaded phones for a cheaper price? Now people have to pay 100 USD- 600 USD just to fic up a device? WORST COMPANY ever. They only care bout their pockets now.
