Ohm my God: If you let anyone other than Apple replace your recent iPhone's battery, expect to be nagged by iOS

"On this subject as well as on the subject of Apple screwing over people who need computers with a T2 chip repaired."

Remind me again how Louis Rossmann makes his money? Oh yes - by running a third party repair shop that will take a hit from Apple's decision to lock components, and by making YouTube videos that collect ad revenue - the more controversial the video, the more ad revenue he makes. I'm not saying he's wrong - I'm deliberately steering clear of that - but he does have a vested interest in painting Apple in the absolute worst light possible.

Also, what Apple does tends to be copied in short order by the rest of the market, so expect to see this on a Surface or a Note near you soon.
