Some of you may buy an iPhone, Macbook, iMac or other Apple product because they are less likely to fail. I think Apple makes some great products, but they can still fail and when they do it can be quite costly to repair. I’ve repaired a few recently and want to share some great knowledge with you.
I think most of us can agree Apple items are not cheap to purchase new, and the cost to repair them is steep as well. Proper tools and a step by step repair guide is all you need to boost your confidence and save some money. It’s not that they are any harder or the parts are more expensive than any other device, Apple products are precisely engineered. Without knowing how everything is put together it can be quite difficult to tear one apart.
Here is a website that has the best repair guides I’ve ever used – iFixit. I had to replace a disc drive in a Macbook recently. Once I had the replacement drive I went to iFixit to find my repair guide. After finding the right guide by matching the model number, the process was simple and easy to follow. Here is the guide I’m talking about – https://www.ifixit.com/. This was great! The beginning shows you what tools you will need and any recommended spare parts. Each step will show you a detailed image with markers so you know what screws to remove and what tools are needed. Many steps will have multiple images to show you more detail or a hint to help you complete that step.
iFixit has a guide for almost any Apple product that is relevant, including Mac, iPad and iPhone repair. iFixit also has many other guides for games consoles, PC’s, and other electronics. These guides have saved me a lot of time and hassle over the years. That’s not all, iFixit has some of the best tools for working on electronics and a great place to find the specialty tools. Apple devices require a few special tools to repair their items, iFixit will have all of these for your needs. If you order a iPhone screen replacement kit from them, it comes with the screen and the needed tools to make the repair!
