    The glue on the battery is there for cost control. It's a cent or two cheaper in manufacturing and/or material cost (glue is cheaper than screws in bulk). When you are talking about millions of units sold, every cent means noticeable loss or gain in profit

    all repairs are very expensive especially cars, the dealers charge $125.00/h yet they pay the mechanics $25.00 to $35.00/h, it gets worse, in Canada many provinces have 2 sales taxes added to the price that would be 15% added to the $125.00/h making fixing your car $143.75/h, the same goes to electronics. plumbers and electricians charge 1 hour traveling time to get to your house and that would be $80 plus the 15% each hour taxes before starting to work and for each hour it's $92.00 including the sales tax, the rest of the services are the same .

      @Louis Rossmann business is clear 1/3 cost, 1/3 overhead and 1/3 profit. in the service business cost is the cost of the labor , at least that's what I learned in my engineering degree many moons ago

      That is absolutely normal. Labor rates being 3 to 4 times a technician salary is normal

    Need a Chilton manual for repair time to tell a person exactly how much time it will take and also price the parts individually. Screens are made by the millions so parts cost I really minimal. Apple Care sounds like Sears mantience agreements. Same old buisness model. BS.

  • B S

    Apple just like Breitling, Omega,or rolex, etc.... Want the repiar to be so high that buying a new thing is better that repair. They also control repair parts very tightly to facilitate this type of push against the repair businees. This sort of thing is like being punished for not buying a new POS that you will have to buy again in 5 years or less because of plannd obsolence. Brands are all a rip off. None of them really make anything anyway, they buy parts and have their products assembled in China or some other cheap/convict labor part f the world. There are more slaves now than ever before due to consumerism throw away crap.

    Apple tried 3 times to “up-sell” me to an iPhone XS Max a couple weeks ago when I went in to get a new battery put into my mom’s 6 Plus. Next time, I’ll just save the ~$30 diff between an iFixit battery and Apple’s battery service, and replace it myself (although, by that time, the phone will probably no longer be supported by Apple anyway, so I’ll have no choice.)

    The real problem is the products are not designed to be durable. The watch and iphone x series have a domed screen that sticks out above the metal frame that just begs to be broken. Ipads have the cover glass go right out to the edge of the device. One small ding on any part of the frame side propagates a crack across the screen. If Apple added a gasket between the glass and the frame or made the corners out of a resilient material then it would be much less vulnerable.

    16:06 and this is why you can work in a store 40 hrs a week and not earn a living wage and how apple can become a 1 trillion dollar company. They fuck their workers and stash the cash. I think of you make a sale of these overpriced pos's then you have earned a commission. Your gonna need it when the user returns pissed.

    But they could design a watch that didnt break as easily by simply giving it a normal watch bevel. So the impact is not absorbed by the screen.

    i had been in the retail/support side of the computer business for over 30 yrs. my major beef with them are on three points: 1. their staff at the Apple store is VERY poorly trained. A lot of them are green behind their ears and the only thing they know how to do is to recite what Apple told them. for what you pay, your staff should be well trained and be able to think on their head. for a lot of folks, their iphone/ipad is their only computer and have a lot of precious memory/important data on there, having staff with minimal training working on it is unacceptable. 2. be practical with their products, don't design products that are practical. don't have the mantra of thinner is better. a lot of their design problems originated from this mantra. 3. pls open up your support to 3rd parties. i mean genuinely open it up, don't control your parts with so tight fist that 3rd party repairer can fix things. i had talked to apple certified repairer that told me they can't help me because a part is not available.

    If it moves to "you can't repair it", I'm just going to not worry about having those toys. As it stands, Apple will NOT get my business until they change theirs. Unfortunately, I'm in the minority and won't affect Apple's bottom line on my own. Maybe enough people will get tired of spending $1000 for a tablet or phone that they have no control over and, if it breaks, is effectively disposable, that Apple's business will be affected enough so that they change.

    You said Government ruins everything. You seem to be unaware that Corporations and the Wealthy Elite took over the American Government in 1980. The 1976-78 Supreme Court ruling that made bribery legal, allowed the complete takeover of Government. In 1900, the Robber Barons were corrupting everything and trying to make bribery legal, so even before the takeover, the Wealthy Elite assaulted Government and interfered with proper function.
    The Middle Class would have never existed if FDR did not fight the Robber Barons and the Republican Business Party, they almost destroyed Capitalism in 1929 and believed in the German Model. They believed Business should control the people and the Middle Class existed from 1945-1980. All Middle Class creating policies and the economic system were changed in 1980, Trickle down Economics transfers Wealth to the top and crushes the Middle Class. In 1980, 40% of Americans were Middle Class and in 2018, 10% are Middle Class. We have come to the end of the Wealthy Elites corrupt way of ruling and Capitalism will start feeding on itself.

    Louis it is Apple's responsibility to provide service for their products. If your warranty is short then a low cost insurance is good. I had Applecare once and was very happy they repaired my iMac perfectly at no cost and saved my data.I am very sad to see the kind of nonsense that is going on. My friend had a dead battery and they told her she needed a new computer. I plugged it in for 2 days and wala it is still working.

    How can you justify Apple's high repair cost when its done to deter people from repairing and just buy a new phone/tablet/mac. Tim Cook even release a letter too investors saying so, for example he states "some customers taking advantage of significantly reduced pricing for iPhone battery replacements." Basically apple is making their batteries harder to replace by design. It can not be made any clearer Apple is making products harder to repair and setting repair costs high to get people to buy new projects.

  • Joseph Whitehead
    Joseph Whitehead 2 months ago Out of their way? HAHA, just try and clone Apple parts that they refuse to sell you or license, and see how fast the government helps them shut you down. This reminds me of that old John Deere V. Kinze lawsuit where they did essentially the same thing, regarding spare parts. Granted in that case, Kinze actually had a pretty good counterclaim, and wasn't just trying to avoid paying a license fee. In fact, it was the other way around. Turns out JD lied on their patent filing and should have just paid the measly fee he wanted for his 3rd-party accessory. It's a different world in 2019, though.
    And yeah, they can't help themselves@25:10 They simply are not capable of it. They marry the chips to each other now, so even if you tear down an almost working unit to get parts for the other one, it won't work without their secret sauce. They're not even protecting (legitimate) trade secrets from competitors so much as their own users. The other companies know these things but that's why we have patents and trademarks.

    'The government ruins everything they touch'... said Louis as he's using the internet (government), on his cell phone that connects to a satellite (government), while walking on the sidewalk (government), past a fire station (government) that might help stop the spread of a fire in his shop if heaven forbid an accident happens.

      In Japan, the authorities waited several years to come up with standards, while everyone else was already online. Before they removed the long distance tariff on data, we all had pay-per-minute dial up (although more Bell's doing). We didn't get broadband until long after the government planted the seed. It's probably more accurate to say that seeds were planted by military and academics, and everyone else crashed the party?
      That satellite is based on NASA technology, but it was a paid launch, with private hardware. Again, it's not an either-or situation - people will do well enough on their own if allowed to run with an idea. It's getting the idea to be practical that is governments' strong point for some technologies and especially pure science. Also, said government had the money because of taxes paid by people that were mostly allowed to make a living. I like to think of governments as ways to balance strategies to manage risks. Some go very far in some directions more than others...
      The sidewalk and police station are interestingly provided by local governments that tend to have similar forms in many nations, and are usually locally funded, in all but the most nationalist states. Even(or especially) the most Randian of 'objectionists' and libertarians would admit there's a concept called "enlightened self-interest" to maintain infrastructure that they themselves rely on. The biggest argument as almost always in these situations, is who pays for it. ;)

    Because with devices that run long undisturbed, no big money is earned. Not only at Apple, that's the case with virtually all electronic devices, and it's all about capitalism, a new religion of the 21st century. And the gods are called growth and productivity. Or how do you manage to recover more profit every year than a year ago? Either you dismiss every year workers or you save on the material or assembly costs (assembly in a third world country). That's why manufacturers invented something called obsolescence. Products are manufactured in such a way that they break shortly after expiry of the guarantee. It creates a so-called breaking point in the product, so it makes the device unusable after a certain time and the manufacturer can sell a new device again. The manufacturer would prefer that you buy a new device every 6-12 months, which is already the case with mobile phones. And in the future, consumers need to buy a new phone every 2 months so that mobile phone manufacturers do not go bankrupt. This applies to the vehicle industry, the furniture industry, the appliance industry, the machine and electronics industry! Regardless of nature and the environment !!

  • tubester4567

    I dont think the components are nearly as expensive as Apple claims. Someone should try to work out the real cost.
    I doubt a $1,000 iphone would cost Apple more than $100 in hardware, particularly when they manufacture parts in the millions of units in China. Chinese companies are making similar specced phones for much less.
    How much does a screen actually cost Apple, probably $20 or $30? OK so I found some info online. An average smartphone costs $100 in component parts including assembly. An Apple phone is around $200, An iphone screen costs around $40. Theres no way Apple repair costs are justified. Apple could very cheaply and easily replace the hardware instead of having a tech find faults. It would be cheaper to replace a logic board with a new one, than have a tech find faults and solder chips on a logic board.
    The Apple Explained guy is making excuses. Apple could easily and cheaply replace components if they wanted to. Apple is 100% exploiting their position and blackmailing customers.

    Really bugs me how Apple doesn't care about water damage in a water resistant device. Offer some guarantee like damn. (Being realistic on how the device got water dammage, if it was done on purpose, then no but if it was faulty but if it just fell in the sink for 5 seconds - + then....? Offer something, fix it, after all IP68 is suppose to (depends) protect up to 5 ft of water for 30 mins not a 5 sec sink accident and they market that heavily) How are you gunna make something WR and make that one of your biggest selling points and not fix it if it was accidentaly dropped in reasonable water source (like the sink?) Ik for a fact if i had a tech company, i'd've replaced the device or something because the IP68 wasn't doing the job like i said it would've.

    When I had a Nexus 5X (Purchased from Google), it randomly just died when it was almost two years old. Which sucks sure but all devices can randomly fail for one reason another. I contacted Google and in the same day I was authorized a free replacement, two days later I had what at least looked and worked as a brand new device with no fees what so ever. Didn't purchase any warranty etc. Just compare that to Apple....

Our social programs are running right along, our healthcare has made the entire population healthier and happier, homelessnes has been eradicated, as well as many other benefits to living in a country where faith based initiatives overrule hard science, Yup keeping the government out of things has really made a difference in America.

      Thank the FDA for people dying from diseases that could have cures out.

      There is this idea that if one group does not do something by force, it will not get done. It is sad that this is the prevalent idea.

    700 USD in my northern European country for all other types of repairs except the screen repair on the iPhone XS, now thats sick. And the screen repair is 320 USD. There is no excuse for that kind of prices.

    I wonder if the geniuses at Apple realize that refusing 3rd party repairs to their products is the reason their authorized shops are terrible. Unauthorized shops in my opinion would normally be the balance of work load if no one except the hand full of authorized shops can make repairs to products causes these shops to become bogged down with nearly unachievable quotas and less than ok Workmanship.

    I don't know why I'm watching this guy so much lol, I just agree with him on a lot of things and I like the way he forms his ideas and thoughts. It's very similar to how I think so it's easy to watch and just relax. Lot's of life lessons hidden in his videos as well. Good job keep it up

    I'm thinking of purchasing the 2018 MacBook Pro w/ the Touch Bar so I can start developing applications for iOS, but I'm not sure if I should get the device. My friend who's also a developer recommended it to me but I'm not sure after reviewing your channel. Does anyone have any opinions, or alternatives, or should I just get a hackintoshable laptop? (I don't have room for an actual PC.)

    Repairs from the manufacturer should be done close to cost...ESPECIALLY on known issues. Its disgusring how these people do business, you barely even own these things anymore.

    6:52 - It's all about making the manufacturing process as cheap as possible. A few bits of 3M VHB adhesive material, is WAY cheaper than 5 screws, and a piece of plastic. Every corner they can cut, every cent they can shave off manufacturing....well, that's just good for the bottom line.
    These machines are worth nowhere near the 1000+ dollars they charge for them.
    9:45 - This is because Apple put FORM over FUNCTION.. This is why they seal everything up, and make it non-serviceable, for clean lines....this is why their machines are engineered so horribly on this inside....because it all has to fit into this sleek shell, because it's more important to Apple that it LOOK good, than it is for it to FUNCTION good. They make cheap, disposable, overpriced, designer shit, and the people just eat it up....
    Also: Holy oh fuck, look at the size of Timmy's adam's apple....fucking thing looks like a tumor, lol.

    We know why they are expensive, the same reason why electronics on appliances like stoves,fridges, and many other appliances brand wide are all expensive. its simply because they horde the market on said object then they hold the parts back alot of times controlling the market price on them so that if they can give a cheaper labor price because they make the parts more expensive. Now for apple its the opposite they just straight up make it as hard as they can for others to repair so they can straight up charge more from the gate. Now the reason why they do it to begin with is because they all want you to buy new items that cost anywhere from 1k$+ every other year instead of them having to fix it. Thems just the facts anything else is making excuses for all the company's that rob people for a living.

    What repairs does Apple do? From my understanding, they don't repair, they replace. It costs a lot more to replace a board than it does to repair it.
