Why Doesn't Apple Repair Products When They Break?

Episode 1805 (1:37:00)

Jerry from Hatfield, PA

Jerry watches youtube videos from Louis Rossman who fixes Apple products. Apple wants to just sell new products and replace them, not repair them. Leo agrees that people have a right to repair their property, but it's more complicated than that. There are security issues and intellectual property issues. But what Apple does to prevent third-party repair is terrible. People should always get a second opinion.

More than half of state legislatures have passed right-to-repair bills, with companies like Apple and John Deere lobbying heavily against it.
