This is a nice idea, but if you want to increase phone longevity and reduce e-waste, mandate software security updates for however long you mandate hardware repair. Otherwise anyone who cares about security will still throw away their 3-year-old phone. arstechnica.com/gadgets/2022/0

@kyle there is also a „demand“ for 7 years of software and security updates. I can only find it in german right now. heise.de/news/Bundesregierung- - in reality - germany WANTS to demand companies to use the same charge-connector since 20 years. nothing ever changed… a lot of this is idealistic talk with little action unfortunately
