We previously reported that Apple made these resources so difficult to access, even when right to repair legislation forced Apple to make tools and components available to third-party technicians that the option may not be available is.
According to Hugh Jeffreys, Apple has taken its crusade against the right to repair even further with the iPhone 12. Apple has determined that Apple added the camera module to the list of items that third-party technicians cannot replace. This list already contains the FaceID module (for security reasons) and the battery (for security reasons).
By simply swapping the camera module between two identical iPhone 12 phones, the device didn’t respond to the power button, the camera app stopped responding, and the zoom, panorama, and portrait mode functionality stopped working.
It remains to be seen why Apple is suggesting why the camera module for one iPhone 12 can’t be used on another iPhone 12 and why that would prevent the power button from working, but rather Jeffrey’s video showing him swapping out modules of 2 brand new iPhone 12 phones to no avail clearly shows that Apple has no intention of making it easy for end users to repair their iPhones.
