The costs of providing repair services has exceeded the revenue generated by repairs
So, repair is not a good business to be in?
Apple has launched an independent repair provider program… we currently only support sole proprietors and repair providers who conduct repairs as a business, and not individuals. Repairs performed by individuals, who are more likely to be untrained technicians, increases the likelihood that repairs will not follow proper safety and repair procedures and could result in improper function, product quality issues or safety events.
There’s no money in repair for Apple, customers shouldn’t try it, either, but it’s OK for businesses to lose money.
