@Raven67854 gbryant, as both an Apple user and an independent repairman, I have some comments about your right to repair segment. Currently I work for Batteries Plus Bulbs, however this isn't my first job as an independent repairman. First let me say this, CAT is just as bad as John Deer (my dad is a mechanic too so I get my technical experience from him). "Warranty Void if Removed" stickers and the like are illegal under the Magunson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975 (aka The Lemon Car Law). Per the act, manufacturers (not just car manufacturers either) can only void the warranty if the attempted repair caused the device to fail - not just because someone else worked on it. (I actually read the whole thing xD). Worse yet, while the FTC created and is supposed to enforce this regulation, the only thing that they have done is send a strongly written chastising letter to Apple, Samsung, John Deer, and others. Also, the battery thing isn't the first time Apple has done this. Apple also currently does it with Touch ID and Face ID. If you mess up your home button or front camera on the iPhone X or higher, then the phone is trash (unless you are content without those features like I am) because you cannot fix them since they "marry" them to the iPhone motherboard. Also when you do break it and use "non-genuine Apple parts" what it does is periodically display an annoying pop up in the middle of the phone's screen at startup and other random times saying that "Could not activate Touch ID for this iPhone". I do not know what exactly it says for the iPhone X battery yet as this battery thing fortunately only hits the iPhone X and higher so I haven't had the privilege to see it first hand. What I find funny is that Apple is really shooting customers in their faces with their $1000 phone more and more and the customers are completely oblivious. They also disabled fast wireless charging on the iPhone X (thankfully iPhone 8 still has it). Which based on the way that Lithium Ion Polymer batteries work, fast charging actually improves the overall longevity of the battery. Furthermore, Raven said that it would probably be easier to repair Windows PC than Apple devices, but might I point out that Apple devices are trash like you said. The components they use in their iPhones are such low quality that they are way easier to fix than any Android phone (sometimes it is just that the Android phone in question is worse trash though). For example to repair an iPhone 8 Plus Screen we charge $139.99 and a Samsung Galaxy S5 is $149.99. There is a better quality screen on the Samsung Galaxy S5 than on an iPhone 8. I repaired a Macbook before and a PC, but tbh they're about the same. Getting parts for a PC can be hard since the vendors are so diverse, and often times there really isn't that many more replaceable parts on a PC anymore simply because the market is so fad with thinness that everyone copies Apple by soldering on ram, storage, and gluing in batteries.
