Kind of a tangent here but aren't biometric passwords pretty weak in general?

Considering once your fingerprints are, "stolen", isn't that pretty much that?

Apple shouldn't be liable for the 3rd party parts used in your phone. If they have a negative impact on your phone, that's the consumers issue, not Apple's. They state very clearly that aftermarket parts do and will void any warranty and service for the device.

I wouldn't bring my Visa to chinatown to get the chip repaired, and I would better as hell hope that Visa would shut down my card as soon as that's detected.

Do you take your card in to have the chip replaced? Is this a thing? Did a boat leave and I wasnt on it? What does visa charge for this service? Or is it at the bank? Apple is unreasonable here, utterly and completely. A surprise to none though. Sure void the warranty but to make it unusable? That's a bit much. At least give people the opportunity to have it fixed or use their phones without this option. Apple doesn't care about your security.

The credit card analogies are a bit off, I think. Having my visa cancelled isn't the same as my phone getting bricked. Visa will send me a new card for free, Apple won't send me a new iPhone for free.

Same negative press. Same empty lawsuits threats.

The issue here is that there is no secure way to authenticate the TouchID's enclave with the logic board after the hardware repair unless it's done by someone with access to their internal network.

You can dismiss the security concerns, but they're very real, especially with banks involved.

Some people should really try to understand the issue before calling it a money grab by Apple.

Looks like some people did understand the issue.

Apple released 9.2.1 that re-enables phones but deactivates Touch ID. They also apologized and will offer reimbursements for people who bought new phones because the old one was bricked.

The point I made in the post you quoted was that it wouldn't have mattered if they did this initially, the same backlash would have occurred. Now Apple control's the narrative, and the money they'll have to reimburse is a small price to pay.
