This is a great victory for right to repair days after iFixit reported the issues with not being able to change a screen on an iPhone 13 without disabling FaceID.
Apple obviously didn’t state why this happened and the fix will arrive via a software update. This is why we need to keep companies accountable and shows that if you fight for something it can make a difference.
I’m becoming more and more aware of the throw away culture that Apple encourages and this is another example of their contradicting stance on the environment. Stopping third parties from being able to fix your devices isn’t a good look and they would much rather you buy new or pay over the odds for repair or make you buy a refurbished device than be able to go somewhere else for a fix.
A really good day for right to repair.
