iPhone 12 Anti Repair Design - Teardown and Repair Assessment

Shkencë dhe teknologji

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?

    "keep fighting for our right to repir." Simple, don't buy from companies that think they own the product after someone else becomes the legal owner. Of course, this will be difficult for folks who are addicted to material posessions. I theorise companies will no longer sell their products, but will rent them out for a monthly fee, like many software companies are doing.

    @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.

    My I phone outlasted my android for 5 years now, meanwhile my android backup device breaks down at 1 and a half years, battery bulged and ruined the electronics... I phones generally outlast generic android brands, it makes sense for them to not allow repair and extension of life the thing could last for decades if repaired. Profit margin my friend...

    Believe me when I say , I was THE most diehard apple fanboy up until recently... currently I own the iPhone 11 . I purchased it one of the first days it came out from a version store . since the first day I got the phone, the camera flash for taking pictures simply does not work 😂 but if I record video the flash will work , or if I used a 3rd party app like Instagram to take a picture , only then will the flash work 🤦‍♂️ on a phone I paid over 1000 dollars for and is notorious for having excellent camera quality ...needless to say I was very disappointed. Ive always adored iphones for there simplicity , and genius straight forward interface , let’s not mention the absolutely stunning sleek look and design of the phone. One thing that never fails is the noticeable decline in battery proficiency on all the models I’ve owned , the battery never fails to get really hot after Playing a single cod mobile match . paired with the (often) occasional glitchy Face ID 🙄 What really puts cherry on this whip cream ,is that I’m still paying off my iPhone 11 and the 12 is already out 🤯 I want to switch phones I wouldn’t feel right without my iMessage or FaceTime and of course the exclusive emojis🤷‍♂️... That’s my iPhone rant take what you want from it idk Im just a guy with an crappy iPhone 📲

    the automotive world has been like this for some time. what they have done is at the software level, the components are tied together most likely by serial number. the serial numbers in all the the components must match or it thinks its not genuine. once they install a new part, they marry the components by flashing the new component with the serial number though the charge port with special software. in the automotive world its called component protection or trp (theft relevant parts).

    Right to Repair is important. If the headlight in your car breaks you can take your car to a third party repair shop to have the headlight fixed. If your hard drive in your MacBook Pro breaks you can take you computer to a third party repair shop to have you hard drive replaced. Instead of spending $3,000 on a new computer you spend $300 to fix your old computer. It's better for the environment too as there's less trash in the landfill. If people want to buy a new computer every few years then that's their prerogative. For many of us, we are on a budget and we want our computers to last beyond the warranty period. It's our computer. We bought it. We own it. We should be able to have it fixed when it breaks.

    Only reason Face ID and camera doesn’t work when you do that is because of the flood sensor that controls them it is encrypted data that only responds to its original logic bored so when doing any screen replacement on the iPhone from the iphone x and up you have to remove the front camera and flood sensor from the original screen you are replacing and transfer them to the new screen and it will work I’ve done that with the iPhone XR and the 11

    To be fair to apple... most people have not only multiple Power Adapters at home but also much cables... I have like 6 Apple power adapters that are still in the original packaging (Plus 8 from Anker that i use) and the same with the cables, all original packages. I have some Anker USB to Lightning Cables i use since 5 years... they just dont break... So the power adapter and the cable are not needet, and if you need one they are about 20 bucks in total...

    It's amazing to see how they can sell this with people who are so diehard and would not hesitate to put anyone down who doesn't agree with an Apple. It's all about what SUITS you as a consumer. I have a laptop for my work, an iPad for my law books, presentation stuff, an Android phone and a Sony wireless headphone. If one chooses to only focus on the brand, you're missing out too much and putting money down the drain. There's no reason for example, for me to get the AirPods aa I can get better headphones for the price.

    Not only apple does this, im in catering repairs, Hobart dishwashers are similarly becoming more clever. They used to have built in self diagnosis, accessible from the menu, now the new ones have usb port where only a genuine technician can access these from their laptop software which is of course encrypted and cannot be copied to other laptop... 3rd party repair on those became a nightmare, so a lot of people are just scrapping it and buying a new one when a bigger repair is needed. This should be illegal.

    considering it's been proven that Apple intentionally slows down their phones forcing you to get a newer model cuz they're older ones they have screwed up so bad it forces you to get a new one. well if you enjoyed being used and throwing money away for no reason get an Apple they will screw you all the way to the poor house. Or just get yourself a Droid platform and have a phone that can last you 20 years. Or buy an apple that I guarantee after 5 years will work a quarter as fast as it did originally because of excuses and lies, I completely understand I don't know how I could live with myself knowing that companies can't use racing fuel in their vehicles and can only use premium. I feel so sorry for those that can only afford a $50 million house and not a $300 million house because they didn't screw you as good as they wanted that is so upsetting.

    Planned Obsolescence: Apple is known to make great products, but they realized they can annually make their products old fashioned, outdated, obsolete, so they can make more money. And now, it got to where their products are no longer DIY friendly, no longer include essentials and accessories, and have a shorter lifespan than before, so they can make EVEN MORE money.

    I was thinking it would be cool if there was a phone company that made phones specifically tailored to tech DIY people. As in, make the parts a lot more modular and straightforward to replace and sell upgraded parts and modules. Like where you could just buy all the parts/modules/accessories and whatnot and build your own phone if you wanted to - and then be able to upgrade things like the camera, speakers, battery, RAM, storage, CPU, etc... I know you can already do a lot of that but I mean, make it a lot simpler, more straightforward, more upgradeable, etc. Sort of like open source or whatever. I don't particularly care for Apple. I've always been tech savvy, but I've only had a smartphone since about 2016 and they've all been Samsung Galaxies - 5, 7 and Note 9 I think... I tried to talk my wife out of going with Apple but she was sold on the rose gold. And maybe it's just because I'm used to Samsung, but iphones seem counter-intuitive to use and repair and Apple's obsession with proprietary parts and software is very frustrating. Like where the charging adapter wasn't in the box - my wife just bought our nephew a basic iphone and it didn't have one either - just that weird, useless lightning-to-C thing. And like how their batteries are always a weird, non-standard voltage. Also, like with their weird headphone jack situation. It seems like Apple has historically always stood in the way of various USBs, chargers and cable types becoming universal standards - like they always go against the grain and go their own way when other companies have accepted the new standard. Yet people continue flocking to their products, waiting in line for days to buy them, paying exorbitant amounts, buying their weird proprietary parts, etc... To each their own, I guess. I'm rapidly becoming a grouchy old man lol...
