This needs to be heard and understood by as many people as possible. It’s a decoy program to have something to show the court / politicians when the Right to Repair movement calls them out. They’ll say “See? We’re already doing it, no need for this bill to pass hehe thank you bye ”
Meanwhile, their “self-repair program” offers NO self-repairs for:
any of their product lines except the iPhone
any iPhone older than the 12 (!!!!!)
any broken charging ports or faulty chips
And lastly: it still provides NO schematics.
So basically, Apple is telling us this:
Got a broken Macbook? iPad? Apple watch? Display? AirPods? Mac? Please go and have intercourse with thine self.
What do you mean “iPhones that are most susceptible to require repairs are not the last two generations released”? You dare wish to repair your iPhone 11? XR? 8?!? Well… sucks to be you.
Now, of course, you could pay us a criminally high price for poor service and we’ll repair it for you though 🙂
Oh, and for the few of you who actually need what we are offering in our self-repair program: the price will be just a few dozen of dollars cheaper than what you’d pay for us to do it.
Thank you for choosing Apple!
