What’s funny about this post is that I didn’t even know that AAPL got rid of the headphone jack in 2018 iPad Pros. Where was all the condemnation in the press about this? Oh wait - headphones in 2019 are mostly wireless now. Goes to show AAPL was right to kill off the headphone jack starting with the iPhone.
You make good points, but unfortunately all of your points are completely irrelevant. Apple is taking a huge risk by not dealing with this (even if the customer in this case gets hit with a big repair bill). Events like this will only add fuel to the fire in regards to proposed right-to-repair bills working through multiple state legislatures. Apple is vehemently opposed to such legislation, and if state legislators succeed in passing these laws, Apple would be severely impacted in not only how they design iMacs, but how they design iPhones and iPads as well.
Apple needs to get in front of this as soon as possible, if they don't want outsiders dictating how they must design their products.
