Apple is focused on draining as much money from their customers as possible while providing as little value as possible. It’s true that they can make a solid product that their customers are willing to pay top dollar for, but the benefits of their devices are starting to wane as each device is only a little bit better than the previous one. Each device is more expensive than the last generation was.
While that itself isn’t a giant issue, as you can see in the video, Apple is doing everything in their power to prevent honest and hard working repair shops from being able to work on the devices. Instead, Apple expects their customers to pay premium dollar to have their devices repaired even when the issue is caused by Apple to begin with. The current state of device repair in the United States (and in other countries) is terrible, and Apple is one of the primary reasons why people have a difficult time repairing their devices even if they have all of the knowledge and skill required to do so.
They have effectively stolen parts that Louis Rossmann has purchased which are not counterfeit products undermining Apple’s legitimate parts in the market. As a result of this, it is in my opinion that Apple is a criminal enterprise. If you’re in the market for a new phone, I would highly recommend not purchasing into the Apple ecosystem as doing so offers Apple the financial support to continue to harm consumers. Even if you’re not an Apple consumer, you’re negatively affected by their business decisions.
