Motherboard published a pretty bold article earlier this month highlighting the impact iPhone 8 would have on 3rd party repair shops. The title? “Title: The Next iPhone Could Put 15,000 Repair Companies Out of Business” That’s pretty bold! Since then many other articles have come out spinning this concept and have many repair techs, repair […]
I was listening to Clark Howard’s pod cast a few weeks ago when he announced that Verizon would now offer cracked screen repairs for iPhones. Retail post-paid has never shown interest in conducting repairs and for good reason. Their business model is service, devices, accessories and warranty protection plans – not retail repair! I scanned various […]
Right to Repair has gained a lot of attention but didn’t see much legislative progress through the Senate or House in 2016.

Everyone has been talking about Apple’s potential change from LED/LCD to OLED technology in the upcoming iPhone 8.

Apple has quietly implemented a new change that provides ~4X as many retail repair locations for consumers to fix their devices. While Google choose to partner with “unofficial” repair franchise uBreakiFix last month, Apple simply gave the go-ahead for their already existing 3rd Party Authorized Service Providers to conduct qualifying repairs. “Happy” would be a great way to […]

It may surprise you that 62% of Americans have less than $1,000 in their savings account. Yet, about 98% own some sort of cell phone and 68% own a smartphone. Sure, there’s bound to be some overlap but the numbers strongly suggest that most smartphone users simply can’t afford to pay for their devices upfront in full. […]
A cell phone tech shouldn’t have any issues testing device’s full range of features. After all, they’re working on these gadgets day after day and know them like the back of their hand.

Cadex battery testers have always been boss but they’ve mainly been used in large repair and refurbishing operations. These analyzers weren’t reasonable for repair shops mainly because the devices had multiple bays allowing users to test multiple batteries but costing upwards of several thousands of dollars. In addition, you needed multiple expensive add-ons to test […]
iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus successfully launched last week with some decent hardware improvements including a water resistant body, improved camera resolution, 256GB capacity and promised to change the headset market with funny looking wireless earbuds dubbed “AirPods”.

Repair repair can have it’s challenges with customers who aren’t particularly happy with repair prices and wait times to fix their beloved devices.

Statistics in […]
