It might considering Apple is stooping to these antics.
Imagine that. Your display breaks, by accident or by carelessness - no matter, you want to fix your own display or take it someplace that isn’t “Apple Authorized” and because you don’t go directly to Apple’s den of thieves, they pull this on you. You don’t want to pay out the yingyang? I guess you’ve got a faulty display then!
(Look, I get it. They do this to save their own butts legally. That does not make it right.)
I’ve looked at both the original SE and this next generation SE and I’m wondering if it’s really necessary to remove the entire display. I realize if the phone has its original battery in it that it likely is but if you’ve replaced it once before I don’t see why it’d be necessary to remove the display, just remove the battery itself and then you have less work. Maybe I’m missing something?
That’s the idea. They make it possible to repair but they also make it very difficult to repair to stray most from attempting it. I miss the days of removable batteries and phones with jacks on them.
