The info massages about the screen etc.. doesn’t seem to really stop third party repairs from fixing them. They will still most likely do it. (my local one just added the phone as an repair option)
Extremely complicated and not worth it at all 💀

Just so you know you can now buy screens for the 11 series that will not show the 'maybe not genuine warning'. No flashing needed.

haha, true. Imagine handing the repaired phone to your customer, it slips out and fall on the floor. and the customer picks it up and says: "oh, so you couldn't repair it, after all?"

Well at this point after removing all those parts you should replace the frame, not everyone got a laser machine or the budget to buy one !! Thanks to Apple for making this process easy to do, thumbs up to Apple for being such a stupid compagnies.

Fr, I think companies that do this should be taxed more. Edit: I’m talking about comps making the ikr products stupidly difficult to repair with 3rd parties.

Can the back glass be removed without a laser and not having to remove the internal components?
The Redneck Ram
The Redneck Ram 3 days ago
sure, it just requires a hammer, some good cut resistant gloves (for safety of course), maybe a metal pick or two, some tweezer, and a lot of patience......oh and a lack of caring about anything inside the phone wouldn't hurt matters

And moreover that if they do remove third party repair that makes you go to their repair services where they literally charge you for a price thats like 200$ so they get even more profit

I always loved my Apple devices but at the same time I always hated the way Apple don’t care about their customers only their customers money $$$$, which by the way it was exactly the opposite when Steve Jobs was around! His customers where important to him so much that me a nobody always got replies from him to my emails with questions that I used to send. But after his death Apple totally changed and now it’s all about how much $$$ they can get you to spend !!!

i never use the Metal Pry Tool as they are way to thick i use the fine tip of a "Best BST-302'' as i can fit it under the screen/cables without force. you can remove the battery without the need of touching the speaker/taptic engine. ihold tool looks cool but overrated ;) u can hold the screen in place with one hand while locking down the connectors with the second hand. still overall a great div

these phones un-repairability tells us that apple doesn't really care about being Carbon Neutral, because there phones cant be repaired by 3rd Parties. They want everyone to go through them so they can sell more phones.

There was no need to remove all of the components to use the laser. At that point you might as well replace the housing. The only reason the dust was there, was because he modified it to run through the center of the phone, which is completely unnecessary as there is no adhesive there.
