Basically Apple have a Camera calibration software that has to be run after replacing the camera (or swapping them around in this case) otherwise you get this.

Apple are dickbags when it comes to any third party repairs.

There's a security failsafe hidden in the new battery design. Very sneaky. If you remove the battery and wrap it tightly in aluminum foil, that should form a faraday cage and block the errors.

>> No.83666702

Screen, Battery and Logic Board are serialised and any change in serialised parts will trigger the said fail safes.
The security chip (from Logic Board) has the record with registered parts (against the iPhone).

Screen and battery can be replaced in a normal repair, but the Logic Board can't (do dead Logic Board = whole unit replacement).

You are so incredibly wrong it's astounding.

Iphones have literally been designed to be easier to break so that you will spend more money on repairs.

I have an LG android from 6 years ago. The thing can go flying across the room and it has never once had the screen crack or shatter. But making good phones isn't profitable enough to stay competitive in the market anymore.

Keep sinking thousands into your phone repairs wage slave.

This. Say about the EU what you want (and the EU did a lot of trash decisions), the EU did actually more good than harm for normal people who don't have a few billion $ on their shelf to sue the big companies.
The best part is that the EU is the one who sues big companies if they violate the law, so you don't even have to fear any retaliation like getting your account banned.

>That should be illegal
But it won't be, because Apple and companies like them just pay politicians to oppose right to repair laws.

Apple users are retarded nigger cattle and don't care so long as they can show everyone their new iThing and thus how rich and cool they are. In more general terms of why nobody else stops it, see above. The common man has no power, and politicians are more aware of that than ever. That's why they spend so much time paying lip service to identity politic talking points, rather than tackling anything that might affect their bribes.

I was ready to buy the 13 mini but seeing this video puts doubt on the entire enterprise for me. So much of it has no purpose other than monopolizing the repair market. It's not even just that they're warning you that components have changed which I can at least kind of see an argument for although I don't buy it, they're actively bricking the device.

Holy christ stop being a dumb fuck. The recycling business started as and has always been an excuse for the worlds largest polluters to use up scarce resources and pollute the environment when no recycling process can prevent the fact that every time you recycle your phone a bunch of the materials are not reusable or recoverable.

The truth is the only way to actually achieve environmental goals is to reduce your cooonssummpttion. You need to buy a phone less often to be environmentally savvy. You need to buy less plastic wrapped crap. You need to stop using so much single use shit. However there is no financial interest in promoting this shit so companies go WHOAH RECYCLING WE'RE SO ECO-FRIENDLY! Recycling has become a way to greenwash to justify evil.

The issue is that Apple, when its been a sufficient amount of years will stop supporting software updates for your phone, stop supporting the hardware for your phone, and the entire system is so locked down if you want to do anything about it, "sorry bud". Your battery will inevitably degrade and you can't even replace it without fucking up your phone. Don't worry though, just go to the Apple store, RECYCLE for the ENVIRONMENT woooooo, and buy a new one! I love Apples environmental stewardship! So long as I RECYCLE I care about the environment!

>> No.83675901

Cool. The batteries wear out over time due to technological limitations, the battery has a fucking serial number, and apple will eventually mark the product "legacy" and stop offering warranty support. When they do so, your battery will wear out, and then your phone will be fucked for no other reason than Apple being cocksuckers.

Purchasing warranties including applecare is retarded and so are you. You lose tons of money on average to offset a small risk. Paying for repairs out of pocket even through offical sources saves you money.

I'm ok if it's not repairable though. Corporation should be forced to establish a bill for your repair. If it's unrepairable or the bill exceed the price of the product when you bought it (minus value drops for years of ownership), they should be forced by law to give you the latest flagship for free. And when they're tired of this shit, they will make them repairable.
