It might be a depressing future for third-party repair centers, but we’re seeing a strong trend among devices year after year. They are becoming more integrated, more compact, and harder to take apart. Granted, unlike desktops, smartphones and tablets usually aren’t designed to be upgradeable and OEMs naturally frown on unauthorized (and therefore unprofitable for them) repairs. So it is really no surprise that the new Surface Book 2, a half step up from the first model two years ago, scored very low on iFixit’s repairability scale. The one saving grace is that it didn’t do worse than the Surface Laptop.
