This is only news because Apple. Who bothers to fix such things? Only a company that gets paid to help fix such things, so they complain first, loudest, longest. Rishabh Jain:
Apple’s wireless earphones, AirPods, are finally available to consumers… However, if you are thinking about getting a pair, you need to keep in mind the earphones are probably irreparable. iFixit, a website known for dismantling smartphones and accessories down to their basic components has torn down the AirPods and found the earphones are not just irreparable, but that they may also be unrecyclable — going against the Apple tradition of creating devices that don’t end up as e-waste.
Probably? That’s the best you can get? Probably? Who recycles earbuds or headphones?
