Apple's anti-repair tactics on the new iPhone 12: https://youtu.be/FY7DtKMBxBw
Genuine parts swapped between brand new iPhone 12s won't work properly until swapped back.
Most likely explanation: Apple intentionally ensuring no one can self-repair or use a third party service. Not a new MO for them by any means.
Despicable behavior. Remember this source of e-waste when Apple pretends to care about the environment.
@typenil I can honestly, and proudly, say I've never owned an Apple product and never will.
I found their marketing practices distasteful from the very beginning and their products are just "form over function".
