9 Things That Make Apple Products "Complicated"
Bangalore: Over the years Apple has grown into a leader in consumer electronics, thanks to their innovative technology which brought out classy and geeky products. But the company over the years also attracted criticism for making the products difficult and expensive to repair.
iFixit, the company which sells repair parts and publishes free wiki-like online repair guides for consumer electronics and gadgets on its website, has been most vocal critic of the Cupertino giant. The company is the first one to come out openly about how Apple makes its products which are difficult and expensive to repair, and are complicated to recycle.
It is a common practice to use screws to hold components together in a device, but Apple seems to be against screws as they ruin the line of products, and this makes it easy to get inside the device.
Considering this, the current Apple product lineups like, iPhone 5, iPad 4, and iPad mini, make extensive use of adhesives to hold the components in place. The screens, batteries, cabling, and other components are placed in the devices using adhesives.
The use of adhesives makes it tricky to repair the devices, like trying to free the battery may harm the components which are glued along to it.
