Choosing the best service center for your iPhone, Mac and Apple Device repairs.
Apple Store Vs. Apple Authorized Service Center
Those looking for Apple repairs often become confused about the differences between Apple Stores, Apple Authorized Service Centers and unauthorized repair businesses.
When searching for “iPhone repairs near me” - you can become overwhelmed with the variety of options, prices and locations available to you. In this blog post we will be clarifying the differences between the types of repair shops and will review the benefits of choosing an Authorized Service Center.
In short, Authorized stores must meet certain requirements set by Apple and their employees receive the same training and certifications that regular Apple Store employees do.
In contract, unauthorized repair facilities create their own standards to adhere to.
Authorized stores also have access to Apple resources including genuine replacement parts and product schematics. These are proprietary resources of Apple that unauthorized locations do not have access to.
Apple Authorized locations are about as close as it gets to a genuine Apple Store, with some added benefits such as location and speed of repairs.
Benefits of Bringing Repairs to Authorized Service Centers
Quick Repair Turnaround Time
Digitiqe can repair most products right here at our service center, which means that we hardly ever mail out products for repair. This means faster turnaround time on your iPhone repairs, Mac repairs and Apple product repairs.
“Thank you, Cody and Digitiqe for saving me when I woke up one morning with a computer that was not functioning. Getting this repaired was urgent for my business and I so appreciate your understanding of my situation, sympathizing with my urgency, and providing a quick, effective, high quality repair … all while keeping me updated as the work was performed.” - Jeffrey Lehrman
One of the biggest benefits of visiting an Authorized Service Center is that all repairs are made using Genuine Apple Parts. This means that the risk of malfunctioning or subpar parts being used during your repair does not exist.
The only stores that can order OEM original parts are Apple stores and Authorized Service Centers. OEM parts are not available for retail sale and can only be acquired through repair services at these locations.
This is especially important for certain repairs such as battery replacements.
Another benefit of bringing your device to an Authorized location is that you can ensure proper software calibration. Repaired devices can now be calibrated by connecting to a Mac and running Apple’s diagnostic software. This means that repairs are now faster - decreasing turnaround times on repairs.
At Digitiqe we know that your data is important! That is why we never wipe, or factory reset devices when conducting repairs. It is common for data to be improperly backed up. To learn more about how to correctly back up your data, check out our blog post on backing up your data.
Luckily, at Digitiqe we protect your data during all repairs! This means that you can rest easy when bringing your iPhone, Mac, iPad or other Apple device in for a repair.
