To meet France’s new Right to Repair laws, Apple is adding a repairability score on its website in the country. The score is similar to iFixit scores. The scores are necessary to inform customers about whether or not a product is repairable, difficult to repair or unrepairable according to the French Ministry of Ecological Transition.
The iPhone 12 Series has got a rating of 6 out of 10. The higher the rating is, the easier it is to repair the device. The iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Pro score 4.6 out of 10. The iPhone 11 Pro Max and the iPhone XR have a score of 4.5 out of 10. The top rated iPhone is the iPhone 7 which has a score of 6.7 out of 10.
Speaking about Macs, the 13 inch MacBook Pro (M1) has a score of 5.6, the 16 inch MacBook Pro has a score of 6.3 and the highest scorer is the MacBook Air with a score of 6.5.
The score is based on different criteria such as availability of repair documentation, ease of disassembly, availability and price of spare parts, and software updates.
