The EU wants to extend the life of smartphones and tablets.

The EU wants smartphones and tablets sold in the EU to last at least five years. This could be good news for everyone, whether you live in Europe or not.

Over the past few years, the EU has been steadily working on its right-to-repair legislation. This is intended to make it easier for ordinary people to repair old technology. The goal is to reduce e-waste when obsolete gadgets (such as the iPhone 12 and Samsung Galaxy S21) can be easily repaired and possibly even upgraded.
