I couldn't imagine doing this sort of parts-swap for anything Apple these days. Though, to be fair, I guess I did just read that ifixit gave them a 7 out of 10 for repairability on the new iPhone 14
@lmorchard I've replaced so many apple laptop batteries in my family that I can do it under 3 minutes now. A skill that will sure come in handy once the global supply chains crumble to dust under oppressive weather patterns.
@goran The last one I tried to replace in a MacBook Pro was all glued in and took a few hours to get free. Maybe they're easier lately? https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/MacBook+Pro+13-Inch+Retina+Display+Early+2015+Battery+Replacement/45137
@lmorchard I remember my first MacBook (the white plastic one from around 2007) and how you could replace the battery with just like....a coin to unscrew the little thing
I don't know what's funnier, "tools needed: coin" or that there's a link to buy a coin
But the point is anyone could replace this. My mom could have replaced this without any anxiety about it. A kid could replace it.
@lori Yeah, I really miss those days of batteries. I even used to sometimes keep a charged spare in my bag on trips
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
