According to the American media Motherboard, Apple would consider sending a representative to Nebraska (United States) to testify against a bill related to ” right to compensation ” If enforced, this regulation would require the Cupertino company to provide consumers with third-party repair shops and access to service manuals and spare parts.
Apple will oppose the adoption of this bill because the company considers that it could harm consumers. Since the fiasco of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, the use of the lithium battery, which is also found on the iPhone and iPad, has caused a lot of controversy. Explosion cases have been reported with certain Apple devices. Non-conforming repairs could cause this type of incident, which explains the Apple brand opposition to this new law.
However, Apple’s veto over this bill remains incomprehensible to observers. Indeed, the ” right of redress Would allow the company to set up a maintenance network to better control and protect its various devices. The Cupertino brand is therefore not out of the woods, since other states are also interested in this initiative, including Illinois, Massachusetts, Kansas, New York, Wyoming, Tennessee and Minnesota. For the case of Nebraska, the hearings will take place on March 9 in the city of Lincoln.
