Surprise! When you force Big Tech to do the right thing, it turns out not to be such a "world-ending" event as they'd like you to believe:

" is opening up iPhones and Macs to at-home repairs. The company plans to start selling parts and tools and offering instructions on how to repair Apple products at home, without having to bring them into a store or a third-party repair shop. Apple plans to start with the iPhone 12 and 13, followed by Macs with M1 chips."

@rysiek Idk what to think about this. Like, who'll buy parts to fix stuff at home? A fraction of their customers maybe.

And if they're giving people what they're giving to the shops, from what I learn from Louis Rossman that's not much, not really useful.

I have a feeling this is just to make people shut up and curb repairspeople's attempts to push Right to Repair.

Guess I'll wait and see what Louis has to say about this.


@cadadr absolutely. It does, however, move the conversation in a good direction, I feel!
