Apple products received a repairability rating

In France, of course, under official pressure, the manufacturer himself indicates how much the device he puts in the hands of the customer can be installed and repaired.

In France, a law came into force this year that requires manufacturers to indicate for a variety of electronic products the extent to which a device qualifies for repair. According to MacGeneration, the rating takes into account how difficult it is to disassemble and assemble a product, whether there is a suitable description and, of course, parts for repair, whether there is a suitable service network, how long software support is promised, and even how cost-effective a service opportunity is compared to the price of the product.



According to Radio France Internationale, the system is far from mature, as companies, albeit according to strict guidelines, determine this number themselves, based on software support time and financial considerations, so it is easy to tell the difference that the iPhone 11 is only It received a medium average of 4.6 out of 10, while the iPhone 12, which is also very difficult to service, with even more coded parts, has already received a 6-point, good rating. According to Le Monde, Samsung has also begun to vary the rating, offering an online repair guide for the Galaxy S21 Plus so they can write a better number next to the more expensive phone.


The iPhone XR didn’t perform very well, it got 4.5 points, the SE (2020) got 6.2 points, the M1 MacBook Air has a value of 6.5 points, but the M1 Pro versions are only 5.6 while the 16-inch Intel-powered Pro machines scored 6.3 points.


Incidentally, the law has existed since January 1 this year, in the introductory phase, so it will only be punishable from 2022 if someone does not meet these conditions and still markets their product in the country. In many countries, the charging headset and earpiece are a must-have for a smartphone, so they should be given to high-end mobile phones even if they are not part of the package by default, which is why Apple can hardly expect such reviews to appear in Hungary. on the official side: at least until the obligation to do so is enshrined in law at home.
