Does it violate the terms of use of the phone? iPhone, for example. If the terms make it clear you can't fix it outside their approved shops then there is no "right to repair". It's part of the contract you get into when buying the phone.

I can't seem to find the terms of the iPhone anywhere.

If you tried and couldn’t find the terms that preclude that, isn’t it reasonable to conclude that those terms are not being effectively communicated as part of the sale (regardless of whether those terms do or do not exist)?

EULAs are not legal documents, they are used to cover their asses but it is not effective at that.
