Compiled a rating of the most unsuitable for repair devices

IFixit experts shared their own rating of devices in 2019, which were based on

maintainability indicator. More precisely, there are two ratings - one with the most repairable devices, the other with the least.

So the best, that is, the most repairable, are the following devices:

  • Fairphone 3 modular smartphone (10/10);
  • Mac Pro 2019 (9/10);
  • Xbox One S All Digital Edition Console (8/10).

In all of these devices, it is fairly easy to replace broken components. In some cases, experts also praised the availability of useful instructions inside the enclosure.

On the back of the barricades are:

  • folding smartphone Samsung Galaxy Fold (2/10);
  • MacBook Pro 16 ″ 2019 (1/10);
  • Apple AirPods Pro Wireless Headphones (0/10).

Headphones received such an assessment quite deservedly: iFixit tests showed that it is generally impossible to assemble them back after an attempted repair.
