Thankfully Jonathan was able to take it to an independent repair shop for a $75 CAD adhesive fix (and battery replacement?) despite Apple’s restrictions against them.

      Just make sure you don’t get suckered into buying a new device when the old one is perfectly fixable at third party repair shops or sometimes even by yourself.

        I buy parts that I need from ifixit. Not paying Apple to replace batteries. Should prob clarify that I have a full set up smart home and use HomeKit because it’s the least intrusive of the other options I’ve found. Used to use Alexa but it was dogshit.
