Shops Balking at Apple’s Independent Repair Program Terms

Originally published at:

Many interpreted the Apple Independent Repair Program as an olive branch to third-party repair shops, but Motherboard has found businesses balking at Apple’s “onerous” terms.

Ridiculous terms. The absolute arrogance of whoever is making these decisions is mind blowing !!! I used to be an Apple Consultant Network member for many years, until they started to push out the small players by requiring members to take tests for Business Level WiFi credentials, like for Meraki product installs. I do 95% home user work, never use Enterprise level WiFi installs. So, this was an indication of an intentional push out of the “small guys”. After doing this for 30 plus years, I finally had enough of this Corporate BULLSHIT. Apple only cares about $$ at this point, and that disgusts me.
