Apple is not a consumer-oriented company except for wanting access to your wallet. Apple is on the dark side and anyone foolish enough to use their products get what they deserve.

I hope Right to Repair movement spreads globally, then we'll see how much Apple is really worth without those extra sources of income. We don't even have Apple stores where I live so their products are more expensive than usual. For example, you can get a Note 9 with 512GB of storage for around the same price as an iPhone Xr. No matter how cool or unique their products may be, NOTHING justifies the behavior you described in the video. Until they change their ways, the only way for me to carry an Apple product is if it was given to me for free. That way if it breaks, I'll just throw it away or sell it as spare parts

As soul-draining as it was running service at an AASP, the redemption was in exacting every ounce of value from their rare "quality programs" (part recalls) and finding ways to take them to the cleaners whenever possible. I know it didn't put a scratch in their bottom line, but it helped me sleep at night.

I keep telling people about Apple's bad practices and how they are absolutely disgusting as a company. All I get back is how great they are and how easy to use their products are and returns / repairs are never EVER an issue despite my own experience to the contrary. It seems people eat this shit up and will just keep buying their products no matter what. I recon if Apple actually put poison in their products people would somehow say "Yea but the UI is so nice, so what if you die a bit, I've never died so it's a lie".

Spot on as always. People are largely dumb and like to follow like sheep. It's common sense and logic if a pc costs 500 the parts add up to 500 +profit it's not possible for a part to cost double of it's original value through damage. How do people think thats possible you have to be brain dead stuid like most americans who say "hey dude".

Apple sells products as if planned obsolescence isn't built-in at the hardware AND software level! They are essentially engaging in fraud with their silence to many aspects of their products including the "right to repair", or lack thereof.

aplle's shops are wonderful. A few months ago, my macbook pro 2015 stopped loading the batteries. So I went to the appla store. the girl from whom I was talking in the store took out the charger from the magical drawer, she connected it to my laptop which did not start to load. the girl said that most probably it will be necessary to exchange some parts inside the laptop. I thought before I gave it to the hands of appla techniques. I will go with a laptop to a small shop to make sure it does not work .... guess what ... it was enough to buy a charger to make the laptop work now..:D:D..

THE most educative video of Linus I have seen till today. I HATE this about Apple. I love Apple for lots of stuff (fastest mobile CPUs and GPUs, best operating systems, luxury design) but one of things I hate about them is that they do their best to prevent their devices from being fixed or upgraded (not to speak about DIY). I understand that Macbook Air needs to be thin and therefore it has RAM and SSD soldered on board, but Macbook Pro? The 2012 model had normal phillips head screws on the bottom lid, and one could replace SSD and RAM without any issues... Now all of their laptops since late 2012 have RAM modules soldered on board and now also SSDs, which is so BS, what do I do if some stupid resistor breaks down on my motherboard? All data lost? OMG Apple! Linus (and guys who worked on this), thank you SO much for these information! BTW, Linus, what about try and build hackintosh? You would be totally able to fix it yourself.

One time I bought an iPad Pro, and I went to Apple to get a screen protector. A guy working at the Apple Store put the case on. but there was over 20 air bubbles. Took it to the Genius Bar to fix it, and they said that the air bubbles "damaged the screen beyond repair." I went home and poked a hole in one of the air bubbles and clawed the whole protector off. Got a wet cloth with some screen cleaner liquid (IDK the name it was my neighbors) and cleaned the surface. I gave the iPad Pro as a gift to my Grandma, and bought me a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0. Apple is really crappy nowadays.

Maaan this shit is bananas. As a side complaint...I can't believe how ridiculously underpowered the Macbook Air is for the money. I had a customer come to me with her brand new MBAir and her software was running extremely slow to the point where it caused the program to idle and crash. Come to find out that its specs were not meeting the system requirements of the software on the MBAir that she had just paid $1200 for. She took it back, bought a $400 Asus Laptop and loaded the Windows version of the same software on it and it has run flawlessly since.
