Apple shows repairability scores of its devices in France to comply with law

Apple has introduced repairability scores in France for iPhone and MacBook, in compliance with a new French law that forces gadget makers to list repairability scores for the products they sell in the country. It covers how easily a device can be disassembled and whether repair manuals and spares are available. The iPhone 12 range received a low repairability score of 6/10 in the new index.

Fantastic idea. Products today are so difficult and/or pricey to repair. Once they're damaged there's no incentive to get them fixed. Money is squandered on purchasing newer models to replace them. Without being able to reliably own something for more than a year, customers only end up getting the latest models, which in turn fuels a necessity and expectation of infinite growth from companies. This isn't sustainable. For those on the left who want to tackle carbon emissions, much of it is produced today by the manufacturing of items (even electric vehicles which aim to help reduce them). Lower the output of manufacturing and you'll make significant strides in this area. Now, why not add a mandatory measurement of product durability too?

The right wings (corporate socialists) of America would cry with many comments if this was happening in the United States. Right wings, crying since 2020. The real snow flakes since 1776.

A 6 out of ten?!? Should be more like a 1.

Good to see France in the news for other than police violence and protests.
