We don’t understand it, but Apple is onboard with a new California bill that is working it’s way forward. Under this Right to Repair act, manufacturers of products that cost over $99.99, will have to make parts, tools and repair diagnostics readily available for seven years after the point of production. I’m all for this, as it’s common sense that we shouldn’t be left high and dry after just a couple of years, with no options for repair. I’m all for this as it opens towards encouraging companies to think about long term aspects of their devices. Apple already has a 5 year requirement internally, but it’s poorly supported, so we’ll see how this evolves from here.
Did Apple just do… a nice thing?
