Apple shipped us a 79-pound iPhone repair kit to fix a 1.1-ounce battery

quote [ The more I think about it, the more I realize Apple’s Self-Service Repair program is the perfect way to make it look like the company supports right-to-repair policies without actually encouraging them at all. ]

Maan what a nutty corporate joke.

None of this should surprise anyone. Meanwhile, my Motorola phone has a user replaceable battery. You don't even need tools.

I repaired a lot of iPhones with dead batteries and broken screens using DIY tools, and some of them even worked afterwards.

I just hope that legislation will improve on apple weaseling out of the rtr requirements.
Somewhat optimistic about the EU, tbh.
