  • No, Apple does not want you to repair broken products. Lamentably, they, like most American companies today, want you to waste small fortunes to buy products you do not need. Good for you for keeping tech kit out of the landfill with your repairs.

  • I recently received a free Apple Watch Series 1 with a broken battery (deep discharge). It's an import and Apple said that fixing it would cost more than a new watch so the owner kept it and was about to throw it away. He was nice and gave it to me so I decided to order a new battery for 17€. I replaced the battery and I now have a 17€ Apple Watch. We should always be able to repair our own devices. I'm glad that the watch now lives on my wrist instead of in the trash.

  • When are people going to listen or learn Apple just want you to buy new every year, I've got apple stuff that cost lots of money just sitting in a bottom draw nothing wrong with them they are like new all but the software, apple stopped updating them because they force you to spend lots of money again for a new model in which a few years down the line yet again no updates. I wish everyone would sit back and look at what Apple is doing to you all, just keep emptying your wallets that's why I'm sticking to android far better.

  • I'm not surprised. Everything except the iPhone and iPad is pretty much useless when goes bad. Airpods can't be sold used and they get lost very easily and the apple watch isn't easy to resale. Apple used to be blood sucking and crazy with their pre iphone customers but it seems like they are really taking advantage of people

  • We as consumers need to show Apple without us they’re nothing. We allow them to pull this type of crap by continuing to buy their products, knowing they what complete control over said product even after purchase. Basically u don’t own the product u just spent $1,300 for 🤦🏾‍♂️. 🖕🏾Tim Apple, that’s just shady business practices with no shame. Not to mention the purposeful speed drops on older devices when newer ones release. They’re pretty much saying 🖕🏾us too.

  • If the screen itself made the watch stop allowing you to use Apple Pay, then it would be an Apple stupid lock. But since it is the NFC antenna, I think that it is definitely a security measure. But extremely annoying nonetheless.

  • You are right to feel like you dont own your device. You don't own your device unless it's running a free (as in freedom) open source operating system (like linux for pc or an open android varient like lineageOS or eOS for mobile), and broken Hardware can be replaced. If you don't control your device you don't own it.

  • Why no 3rd party repair...? What SECURITY REASON IS THERE FOR NFC ANTENA AND SCREEN?? NONE!! It's simple. There's no money in it. There's money only in buying new watch in this case. NO ONE who own's anything made from Apple REALLY OWNS THAT PRODUCT! It's just on a lease and owners don't think about that, that they are TRAPPED in that prison. They don' t know or don't care which is sad really... Brainwashing 101 from Apple's side. And no one from ordinary consumers to figure it out and stop buying ALL OF THEIR STUFF! It's designed only to leave people with empty pocket and a product that is dead after couple of years.

  • hey Hugh, what do you think about the leaks/predictions that apple might put touchid under the screen next year? Will this make screen replacements impossible because the fingerprint sensor is permanently attached to the screen, and the fingerprint sensor is locked to the phone? do other phones that have a fingerprint sensor under the screen require you to replace the fingerprint sensor with the screen too?

  • With such a change of display, card payment does not work. And the worst thing - when you reset or when you sell and unpair with your phone - you get a brick (it is not possible to pair). There is a way out of this situation. Only glass (or glass with a sensor) needs to be replaced. or a more complex repair is needed - transferring the NFC module from the old display to the new one.

  • A$436+ to fix it and has missing features, or A$429 for a brand new SE (version 4 with new processer) with a warranty direct from Apple without the hassle of fixing it. I guess if you're doing it for SEworld points then it's worth it, but it's better to just get one from Apple or look for a few bucks off a sale.
