Doctorow argues that Apple’s main motivation is to increase device sales, as renewed devices do not lead to new purchases.

He specifically points out that Apple’s use of a small SoC to keep track of part serial numbers makes it difficult for independent repairmen to repair devices.

Although California has introduced a “right to repair” bill with Apple’s support, Doctorow notes that federal laws such as DMCA 1201 still restrict the freedom to repair. He calls on Congress to fix the problem and advocates for more repairable and interoperable devices. Doctorow addresses these questions in his new book.
