The EU wants smartphones and tablets to last longer – here’s why you should care

The EU wants smartphones and tablets sold within its borders to work for at least five years – and that could be great news for everyone, whether you live in Europe or not.

Over the past few years, the EU has been constantly working on the right to repair legislation – which is designed to make it easier for ordinary people to repair old technology. The goal is that if outdated gadgets (such as the iPhone 12 or Samsung Galaxy S21) can be easily repaired and maybe even upgraded, it will reduce the amount of e-waste.
