I believe this is genuine support of the bill from Apple. Between Right to Repair winning in Massachusetts and the EU demanding compliance, I think Apple decided to flip the script. They would want to continue the illusion of customer friendly tech.

    Yes, because they’ve already been working on it.

    They’ve already seen the writing on the wall. And now that they have made decent progress on their end, their competition will be scrambling to catch up when the bill becomes law.

      Isn’t the program that requires you to fill a form to order a serialized display and send the old one back? That’s still monopoly, just shift from service to sales. The essence remains the same.

      What competitors? I genuinely don’t know of any other tech companies with exclusive ports.
