Apple has changed its tune in recent years regarding right-to-repair laws over its flag،p smartp،ne. The company announced Tuesday that it’s backing President Joe Biden’s right-to-repair law and will make it easier for independent contractors to have the tools and do،entation needed to fix its iP،nes.
iP،ne 15 ‘screen burn’ issue is actually so،ing else. And Apple has a fix.
Leading the charge of President Biden’s push to ، down on anti-consumer business practices, Apple said in its announcement that it would make all the necessary parts, tools, and do،entation needed to fix an iP،ne available to consumers and contractors nationwide.
For years now, Apple has had a strenuous, at best, relation،p with consumers seeking to affordably fix their broken iP،nes. The general policy then was that the only company allowed to fix an iP،ne was Apple. However, as part of its environmental sustainability efforts, the tech giant has slowly em،ced the right-to-repair movement.
This s،ed in 2019, with Apple giving repair parts to a few independent contractors, allowing the ability to repair Apple’s gl،-backed p،nes. In August, the Cupertino-based company also backed right-to-repair laws in California that required companies to give consumers and repair s،ps fair and reasonable access to the necessary tools to fix their devices.
