Tera Thomas O’Brien is not impressed with options to repair Mac, iPhone, or iPad, but has no trouble with the Right to Repair initiative.
I do not want to repair anything with an Apple logo on it and I suspect– no scientific survey here– that more than most Apple customers are good with that. Yes, there are little repair shops who want to make a living helping us when something Apple goes wonky. But I don’t want to repair Watch, Mac, iPhone, or iPad. That’s what the Genius Bar is for. Apple Care takes care of the rest.
I think I’m in the same boat but I would like to swap out batteries, change RAM and or SSD or hard drive. That’s not easy anymore.
The so-called Right to Repair is a different issue and I don’t have a dog in that fight.
Good explanation of the issues and why an iPad or Watch or iPhone that is difficult to repair is not much of an issue except to those who want to do repairs.
