iPhone 11 Pro Max Restoration - Apples trying to stop DIY repair, again.

It seams Apple really doesn't want you to repair your own phone. With the iPhone 11 introducing more paired components than ever before, its time i tried to fix mine which has a badly cracked screen and faulty cameras.
If a manufacture is successfully able to completely lock down 3rd party repairs, what happens after they drop support for the product? Are we supposed to throw it away and buy a new one? I refuse to support that business model and will try anything to stop it from happening.
I will be sticking with my current fruit phone, from Blackberry :)

    • Even though I don’t like how apple makes their phones hard to fix there is one story of their technical support I will alway remember. So here it is summarized So my dad back in 2013 was using the iPhone 5, randomly, for some reason his phone wouldn’t boot, he took his broken phone to the Apple Store and the tech looked at it, told him it was toast, pulled out a new phone, and gave it to my dad. Free of cost.

  • This is the main reason I will never get a new iPhone ever again. It is absolutely ridicules. The sad part is I was heavily considering buying one used, but the fact that I basically need to have it serviced by Apple is an absolute deal breaker.

  • Honestly, I think that Apple should let people do DIY repairs. I understand that they would want professionals to repair it for the best results, but some people cannot afford hundreds of pounds to repair a display for a phone through Apple (or anything else that may be damaged). They really should make it so that users can repair their own phones after a certain amount of time.

  • 0:55 - A little Mistake in the Video that you said "iOS 13.1.5" & that's not what the iPhone 11 Pro Max is running on, as it was running iOS 13.5.1 in the Video. So, basically your Mistake was that you swapped the last 2 Numbers around in your saying of the iOS Version it was currently running on.

  • Why buy any iproducts when the company is squeezing your balls. I will never ever buy any apple product. They will not help restore your data incase of water damage. they blackmail you to buy apple cloud storage space and now with the iphone 12 they do not even give you a charger and they claim it is to reduce the weight and say there are over one billion mobile charges in the word. yet with the change in the charging cable, none of those chargers can be used and one is forced to buy a charger. I don't care if its the best mobile or laptop or pad or watch in the world. My balls are my balls and i don't like rice (he's gay) squeezing them for money. or free

  • The 10 will probably be the last iPhones repairable As Apple the largest Ewaist culprit has just made the problem worse as all their new products are locked down not repairable by third party as you know if you take it to them the price will be so extortionate it won’t make sense having them fix it they will force you into getting a new item each time therefore more perfectly fixable phones and iPads in the bin

If people kees bying, they will keep doing that and it will get even worse. Fianlly you phone is like a mortage, were the bank is the real owner. Who is the owner of an Iphone 11 .... the persona who have pruchased it or Apple ?. It is the consumer way ?. Or the manufacturer's way ?. They are big coporations and until they dont see their sales hurt, they wont stop.
