With Apple's products getting smaller and smaller, thinner and thinner, I think this apparent penchant for "repairability" is getting rather silly.
I, frankly, couldn't care less.
For example, last year, I bought an iPhone 6+ under AT&T's Next 12 program. And this year, I happily turned it in for a 6S+.
I want the latest and greatest, and I want to benefit from the new features, both hardware and software.
Let Apple deal with any repairs they wish to make. Or let them...
