Apple has reversed course and is now throwing its weight behind California’s right-to-repair laws in a significant win for customers.

Like many Huge Tech corporations, Apple has historically opposed right-to-repair laws, however the firm has now modified its stance. In accordance with iFixit, “Apple has formally endorsed Senator Susan Talamantes Eggman’s Proper to Restore Invoice in California.”

The transfer comes after Microsoft equally threw its weight behind the invoice. Given Apple’s dominance within the client tech market, the iPhone maker’s endorsement is arguably extra important to the success of the invoice.

iFixit’s CEO Kyle Wiens praised Apple’s stand as a “watershed second.”

Apple’s endorsement of the Proper to Restore Invoice in California is a watershed second for client rights. It feels just like the Berlin Wall of tech restore monopolies is beginning to crumble, brick by brick.
