It’s not a perfect system. Radio France Internationale notes that manufacturers calculate their own scores (albeit based on strict guidelines), and they can gain easy points with simple measures like giving more information about software updates.

While that is true, the scores here are a neat complement to the ones posted by iFixit alongside their teardowns. Hopefully the legislation can catch on in other countries as well.

Well personally i’m very disappointed by these scores. Apple’s 6/10 both on iFixIt and according to french criteria sounds not so bad for customers, but is pretty bad to do anything with. I agree a linear scoring system for evaluation makes sense, but information should in my opinion be presented in less-granular way, eg. A/B/C for very repairable, moderately repairable, and badly repairable for notes corresponding to 9.5-10/9-9.5/0-9 respectively.
