image for Tim Cook to Investors: People Bought Fewer New iPhones Because They Repaired Their Old Ones

Wednesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook wrote a letter to investors alerting them that the company would miss its revenue targets in part because Apple didn’t sell as many iPhones as it expected.

The lengthy letter cites, specifically, that people are buying fewer iPhones because they are repairing their old ones.

The Department of Homeland Security, meanwhile, has seized iPhone replacement parts from prominent right to repair activists in the United States.

Apple has never clearly articulated why it doesn’t want people to fix their own iPhones or to have independent experts repair them.

It has previously said that iPhones are “too complex” for users to repair them, even though replacing a battery is pretty easy and is done by average users all the time.

But the fact that repair hurts Apple’s bottom line came out in Cook’s official communication with shareholders, who he is legally obligated to tell the truth to. »
