The next time you take your broken iPhone to the Genius Bar, the repair could be carried out in China. Foxconn, one of Apple’s biggest manufacturing partners, was just granted approval to perform iPhone repairs at a second facility in Shanxi.
The new Apple Watch Series 2 is more repairable than Apple’s original wearable, according to the first teardown to pry open the new device.
Apple Watch Series 2 looks exactly the same as its predecessor on the outside. On the inside it’s an entirely different story, as Apple’s engineers have refined the internals and made it a bit easier to work with.
A strange flaw in the design of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has begun to plague a growing number of users, according to a new report that claims third-party repair experts are swamped with requests to fix what the Genius Bar can’t.
With today’s tech, the general rule seems to be that if it’s broke you can’t fix it. But perhaps you could, if you just had the tools to work with the micro-sized, specialized screws and airtight seams of phones, computers, gaming consoles, and the like. Most of those tools for access are in this excellent bundle from iFixit’s, which includes a full arsenal of screwdrivers and an ultra-thin prying blade, all for $59.95 at Cult of Mac Deals.
