The Huffington Post has written an interesting article about how Apple is actively fighting "right to repair" legislation. These new laws would make it easier to fix your devices and could help reduce the e-waste stream. Full details over here.
The New York State Senate and Assembly could approve one of these amendments next week. This would help unofficial repair shops get the information they need to fix your iPad, ideally driving down repair costs and encouraging you to squeeze more life out of your old devices — thus cutting down on the e-waste generated by our voracious appetites for new gadgets.
Apple asserts that it helps recycle millions of pounds of electronics equipment every year. But it won’t support right to repair amendments.
