Apple, Microsoft, Google all fail: products cannot be repaired

Published

You may know that some brands of equipment are easier to repair than others, but an influential publicity team may have just confirmed your guess. The Verge notes that the U.S. Public Interest Research Group has released a serviceability report card that assesses the ease of repair of devices (based in part on France’s repair scores) and companies’ overall stance on repairs across major laptop and phone brands. score. As you might guess, Apple, Google, and Microsoft are doing poorly, with a D-rated iPhone , and an F-rated — their historically sealed designs, lack of parts, and lobbying for right-to-repair legislation haven’t worked for them Win any score.

No company on the report received an A grade. However, there are some bright spots. Laptops from Acer, Asus, Dell, and Lenovo all received solid B grades for easier access to repair rights and fewer objections to repair rights, while Motorola was the only one to receive this for its relatively repairable phones. A mobile phone manufacturer of grades. HP and Samsung received C grades each.

PIRG’s goals are clear. As with its campaign to open up ventilator repairs, the interest group wants PC and mobile phone makers to incorporate repairability into their designs, after-sales services and politics. PIRG believes that products that are easier to repair can reduce e-waste and save money.

The tech industry is already evolving to some extent. Governments have stepped up pressure on IT companies to accept a “right to repair”, including a plan to enforce laws that support repairs. Some companies are already changing their stance, if in part to block potential legislation. Apple will start selling parts to customers this year, and Microsoft’s newer Surface devices are relatively simple to repair. PIRG’s influence may still help, but it’s not alone in pushing the tech world toward better maintainability.

According to internal sources in the mobile phone industry, a certain part of Europe has been fined 5 million euros per week since New Year’s Day this year because Apple has been failing to comply with relevant regulations. To a fine of 45 million euros, the equivalent of RMB has exceeded 300 million yuan!

The fine, which lasted more than two months, was due to the fact that Apple charged up to 30% of the commission in the payment system, which is also known as the exorbitant “Apple tax”. Many software developers in Europe have filed lawsuits against Apple many times before, and began to sue Apple in the name of “anti-monopoly” in the Apple Store.

Apple has drafted an agreement with the relevant departments this week to try to stop the departure, but it cannot stop the pace of continuing to be fined. Once the cumulative fine reaches 50 million euros, the weekly fine will be higher.

The world that Steve Jobs laid down… don’t destroy it in the hands of this generation.

In 2017, Apple launched the Apple Watch Series 3. As the third-generation work of the series, it has a narrower frame and longer battery life than its predecessors, and has become a “dream work” for many users.

According to Ming-Chi Kuo’s revelations, Apple will officially discontinue the Apple Watch Series 3 in the third quarter of this year.

It is reported that the reason why Apple wants to stop the Apple Watch Series 3 has a lot to do with the hardware configuration that is gradually unable to keep up with the times.

Although at present, Apple Watch Series 3 still supports the latest WatchOS 8 system, but there have been hardware problems such as insufficient storage space, which means that it will be difficult to run the WatchOS 9 system that will be launched later.

In addition, the design of Apple Watch Series 3 has gradually failed to keep up with the times. In the Apple Watch product line, it is the last product with a large bezel instead of a full-screen design.

In terms of time, with the retirement of the Apple Watch Series 3, Apple will also usher in the eighth product in the series.
