    Just saw on CCTV, and ZDNet has article.

    (quick search did not find existing article on subject)

    In short, instead of full replacement, the owners get a refurbished model with the back plate from original one put on rear of refurbish.

    Also this from The Atlantic.

    I just learned it was a rebroadcast from Friday night, so must not be much news then.

    Interesting backlash from CCTV article

    Might it impact Apple? Probably no.
    Nothing to see, carry on...

    Is Apple being criticized in China, is this an attempt to revenge the USA for blocking access to Huawei and ZTE from entering the US market?

    China is pissed that people get new back covers in the rest of the world? Boo hoo. This is only done because of China's own laws - if they didn't do it this way it would be classed as a new phone and not a repair.

    Maybe if they had the same laws as the rest of the world, they might get the same treatment.

    Unfortunately we are tied to this terrible government. The country and its people are great and one can only hope that at some point they are actually free.
