I am wondering about the plans to make the main logic board schematic and the board view files available to enable anyone to repair it. Will they be released?
To give some context, this is about the right to repair your device. If you search on Youtube for Louis Rossmann, he could explain this better than I. The gist is that many times when the laptop breaks, it’s something on the logic board. Sometimes it can be a two cent component that anyone with the multimeter and good soldering skills can replace. To make that easy, you need a schematic that details voltage rails, components, and their values. Also, a board view file where you can see the exact location of the component on the board.
In the case of most manufacturers, including Apple, this information is not officially released. Still, it gets stolen, leaked, and makes its way onto the internet and to the repair shops.
I’m wondering where this company stands on this.
