Apple led the campaign to kill Right to Repair, now it's supplying parts to (some) independent repair shops

Death to the rotten Apple.

Any movement in the right direction, however minimal, is a good thing.

Apple has simply realized the same thing they’ve been trying to impart to the media industry for years: you won’t stop piracy. You’ll never stop all piracy. It will cost you and you’ll alienate users. The trick is to make piracy the less attractive option.

With repair costs coming down and a slew of independent repair shops on the horizon, most people will probably opt for a warranty-friendly, authorized repair. Others will always find ways of tinkering with their phones if they want to go down the Strange Parts rabbit hole. But most people just want their phone fixed fast and at a reasonable price. As long as that criteria is met, the rest is moot.
