Imagine getting a car, and your windshield needs replacing. You go do it, but then your engine says “nope”. Imagine that you even used the official factory windshield. Imagine that both are perfectly fine, other than that. Apple has done it again, crippling those who want to repair their own hardware, who want to go to other sources, and more.
