RepairZoom expands Mac Repair and Apple Watch Repair in Irvine

RepairZoom expands Mac Repair and Apple Watch Repair in Irvine

RepairZoom has expanded its Mac Repair and Apple Watch repair services in Irvine and nationwide through its retail-store and online-store offerings.  After a slew of announcements recently from the amazing headquarters of Apple in California, top repair company RepairZoom in Orange County is already working on several new initiatives to help consumers of Mac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, and Apple Watch.

While just this week Apple announced plans to pay a $38 Billion tax bill as it brings overseas money back to the USA. MacBook users and iWatch or Apple Watch Repair users have much to look forward to with these big Apple announcements.  Apple announced plans on January 17th to add to the U.S. economy in manufacturing with a set of diverse set of initiatives that further the company’s commitment to the American marketplace.  The MacBook maker, iPad inventor, and soon to be Home Pod seller and perhaps future Apple Car maker has a lot to say about this. The three areas Apple is focused on in the near future, a press release today by Apple, include: direct new jobs by Apple; massive new spending and investment with Apple’s USA suppliers and contractors, and growing the fast-growing technology/software/application/App Store economy which Apple created Mac, MacBook Repair and other new offerings.

Mac and MacBook Repair

Apple, based in Cupertino California, already employs 84,000 people in all 50 states. But with the new announcement today, they plan to create over 20,000 new jobs through hiring at existing campuses and a new one, with a location to be announced later in 2018.  Already many cities are vying for the opportunity.  Apple provided details that the new campus will be in a new location, presumably away from Cupertino, Calif., where the giant “Apple Park” just opened, and that it will include facilities for technical support for customers (perhaps telephone and online support) for current and future products beyond the MacBook and iPhone.

Many consumers go to the Apple Store for a Mac Repair or MacBook Repair.  But there are many great independent companies like RepairZoom that offer fantastic repairs on MacBook, MacBook Pro Repair, and many others.  And while Apple is bringing back overseas money earned by massive MacBook sales, and making new investments, together with the existing spending with domestic suppliers and manufacturers, the company’s direct contribution to the U.S. economy will be more than $350 billion over the coming years.  That's a lot of MacBook sales that have fueled this growth.  And that's a lot of Mac Repairs needed all over Orange County and the USA.

Apple Watch Repair

While the Apple Watch is a smaller product in Apple's total product lineup, it is an important product in the Apple ecosystem.  Since the iWatch or Apple Watch only pairs with an iPhone, you can be that when you break or damage an Apple Watch you need a quick and very cost effective Apple Watch repair from a trusted company like RepairZoom.

Today RepairZoom offers a variety of Apple Watch screen repair services for Apple Watch series 1, 2 and 3.  You can go to RepairZoom for a same day Apple Watch Repair any time.  Or you can use the online ordering service for fast iWatch repair and free shipping also included.

Also announced, Apple started work on a new 1.1 million square foot data center in downtown Reno, Nevada.  This will service data needs of all Apple devices including iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac and MacBook.  Apple noted that over the last decade, it has invested billions of dollars in data centers and co-located facilities in many other states, including North Carolina, Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Iowa. It’s also hoped that more MacBook and other iPhone manufacturing will start to happen in the USA. Such efforts would have a very positive impact on the MacBook Repair industry as well, since support on many levels is needed over the life of devices used by Apple consumers.

In summary and to conclude, it's time to get prepared for another blockbuster run for Apple. They have the money, the facilities, the skills, and the wild California ambition. The USA is quite fortunate to have the world's most valuable company.  And now they will make even more products right at home in the USA.

iPhone 7 Product RED from Apple March 2017

iPhone 7 Product RED Apple March 2017

It's finally here!  iPhone 7 in RED from the Product|RED philanthropic foundation has been introduced by Apple in March 2017.  And what a stunner it is.  The Product (RED) Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus was introduced by Apple on March 21st 2017.  Without much warning at all, The Apple online store was down for maintenance this morning, leaving many to wonder as to what mystery product would soon be available to purchase.  And when it came back up, a new RED iPhone and a new iPad!


First, the RED iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus


Available on March 24 in 128GB and 256GB capacities (just like the Jet Black iPhone 7), the new color-scheme in RED is done in partnership with AIDS charity (RED), an organization Apple has collaborated with for over 10 years.  Apple has made a bunch of special (RED) products in the past—everything from an iPod nano to an iPad case to an Apple Watch band.  We love Apple for their generosity to the AIDS community and diversity in general, but we especially love that they put their money where their heart is an put it directly into their best selling global product, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.  Bravo Apple.

Could this product be co-timed to the 70th Anniversary of Elton John and his collaboration with Product RED in the past with Lady Gaga and other celebrities celebrating John's 70th Birthday at "RED Studios" in Los Angeles on March 26th?  Just a guess?!!

You may recall that rumors of a red iPhone kicked off back in December, when Japanese blog got insider information an Apple supplier.  For those keeping score at home, Macotakara is now three for three, correctly predicting the rose gold, jet black, and now red iPhone color schemes.  Guess it's hard to keep colors a secret!


New Powerful iPad also introduced in March 2017

In addition to the new RED iPhone 7's, Apple also quietly launched a new powerful but less-expensive 9.7-inch iPad.  This time they ditched the numbering sequences and it's called, quite simply - “iPad".  Its a slight upgrade over the old iPad Air 2 adding a new A9 chip... but it's carefully NOT full of as many features as the iPad Pro.  For example, you cannot use the Apple Pencil with the new 9.7-inch iPad.

But who cares, at a starting price of just $329.  That's cheaper than the iPad mini 4, and seems to take direct aim at the Chromebook industry.  It seems like every student in American could have a new iPad at this price.  Hmmmm... could this actually be squarely aimed at kids and the school marketplace which has not upgraded iPads since the iPad 2?

On the software side, Apple just released iOS 10.3 today.  As if that wasn’t enough, the company also announced a new app called “Clips” that will be out in April. From what we can gather, Clips is basically Apple’s version Snapchat types of features.  It's closely integrated with Instagram, Snapchat and iMessage, but until it's launched we can't be fully sure what it does.


Apple Park - New Circular designed building in California
Apple Park new Apple HQ in California
And of course, in April, Apple employees begin their move into Apple Park, the new campus for Apple design, engineering, and all things Apple in Cupertino California.  Right in the heart of Silicon Valley, this Steve Jobs visionary building cost Apple over $6 Billion to build and create.  That's a LOT of iPhone sales, in any color, even Red.

Of course, we would love to see even more Apple presence in Southern California, in Irvine or anywhere in Orange County.  Besides the five (5) Apple Stores currently open in Orange County, great stores like RepairZoom and others service and repair iPhones and other Apple devices quickly and easily.  It's one benefit of being close the the Apple mothership in California - and what a "mother-ship" it is.  We just hope they offer tours of the new Apple Park campus.  But knowing the secrecy at Apple around new products the highly competitive world of technology in Silicon Valley, we can't see Apple letting us inside for a look around anytime soon!

Tempered Glass Screen Protectors for iPhones

Tempered Glass Screen Protectors for iPhones


There's been a lot of hype recently about tempered glass screen protectors for iPhone.  iPhone screen repair services, a new industry has popped to help people protect their phones. The idea is if the phone doesn't break their screens, the iPhone screen repair won't be needed.

We hope to clarify some of the information around this exciting new product. Many people wonder do they really work?  How much do they cost? And where can they get one?

Do tempered glass screen protectors really work?

A few years ago people discovered by placing a thin plastic film over an iPhone screen you could reduce the chances of breaking. This actually really works. And the reason is a bit counterintuitive. iPhone screens break of course because of the trauma when we break and drop them. However, a new iPhone screen is actually stronger then one that is one or two years old. Why is that? It's because as we use our phones everyday, running our fingers across the screen, we made a tiny little scratches in the glass. Those scratches become weak spots. So when we drop our phones, those weak spots are where the shattering begins.

So now you see why the plastic protectors helped.  They helped us scratch our screens less. But those plastic screens were pretty awful. They would bubble, Collect dust, and get gross. And perhaps worst of the made our glossy screens no longer feel like iPhones.  And that's what's especially exciting about the new tempered glass screen protectors. Our phones still feel like iPhones when we install them. That's because they're made out of actual glass. They don't bubble anymore. Many times it's difficult to even see the tempered glass on the phone.

How must do tempered glass screen protectors cost?

Prices vary from vendor to vendor, but the average cost is about 20 bucks. When you consider an iPhone screen repair cost upwards of $130 dollars for an iPhone six, and even more for an iPhone 6+, it's a wise investment to make. Most vendors will install them for you. But they're not too tough to do it yourself either. He is remove all dust, And we mean old us, before you attend the installation. Even one tiny stack of dust under the screen will create a tiny bottle. And that bubble will drive you nuts.  So the best bet is to install it yourself on a new iPhone. Remember, those tiny micro scratches that happen?  Don't wait until they form to install the tempered glass screen protector.

Where can you get a tempered glass screen protector?

Temper glass screen protectors are available everywhere these days. That includes Amazon.com. The local mall kiosk.  And great iPhone repair stores like RepairZoom in Irvine near Lake Forest and the Irvine Spectrum Center. Many stores like repair zoom Will allow you to have a discount on the tempered glass free protector if you buy it in conjunction with a bona fide iPhone screen repair.

Some day iPhones may not need this type of overlay protection. There has been a lot of hype in the market about new screens with new technologies such as Sapphire class iPhone screens. However it seems those innovations have faded away as the technology did not really pan out. So today we're left with the next best thing; fortifying our iPhone screens so they are stronger and less resistant to breakage.

iPhone Repair Lake Forest, Irvine, and Aliso Viejo

iPhone Repair Lake Forest, Orange County, Irvine and in Aliso Viejo

It's not secret that getting an iPhone Repair in Orange County is easy.  There are many companies, kiosks, and even mobile companies offering iPhone repair services.  And there are all different qualities and price points in the county.  So how is a smart consumer to choose between all of the options available?  What if you need an iPhone repair Lake Forest or in Irvine?  Let's lay them out for you and sort out your options for help.

Expert iPhone Repair

The first thing to consider, is that you are not alone.  Millions of iPhones break and consumers must choose whether to keep them broken and just 'live with it', of the get the phone fixed.  You can consider going with stand alone repair companies like RepairZoom or iCorrect, and both companies provide you with very high quality repair solutions.  They are known for great customer service, high quality replacement parts, and offering free 're-repair' insurance at no extra cost.  RepairZoom in Irvine even offers free mail in repair services nationwide which are popular with consumers and larger organizations.

You can also try the mall-kiosk options.  Yea, those summer-break texting teenagers who say they can fix your phone in the middle of the mall while simultaneously texting their friends.  Some of these are inexpensive to be sure, but the low cost is often coming from cheap replacement parts and an avoidance of getting the proper licenses to do electronics repairs.  And there are many a harrowing story on Yelp of losing all your data, or even you entire phone, going with a mall-kiosk type repair.


Do It Yourself iPhone Repair

Browsing on the Internet, you can find many options for do-it-yourself repairs.  Of course, the videos make it look fast, inexpensive, and easy.  But the truth is, most people are not good a working with micro-tiny screws and parts are assembling consumer electronics.  It can be pretty overwhelming even in idyllic Orange County.

A good analogy is painting.  Have you ever painted a room and wondered just why it doesn't look so good when you finish?  It's not so difficult to just paint is it?  Well, there is actually a lot of expertise in painting properly... even though it looks easy.  That's similar to doing iPhone repair Aliso Viejo.  So avoid the iPhone repair lake forest kiosk kids.  It's just not the best solution.

AppleCare and AppleCare+ options for iPhone Repair

Apple provides a solution called AppleCare iPhone repair, and it has improved over the years.  The good - you will get Apple quality replacement parts and a warranty with the repair.  The bad - the cost will be expensive, you will likely have to wait a long time for the repair, and after 2 years you are back on your own with no warranty.  If you do not purchase AppleCare+, you get a courtesy grace period for a defective iPhone, but you do not get accidental repair service.  So you must pay if you crack your iPhone screen, and the current going rates are rumored to be nearly $250 for an iPhone 6+ screen repair.  That's not cheap.  And if you DO have AppleCare+, you had to pay $99 up front (or more) and then you must pay a $49 incident fee to get your accidental damage fixed.  Most consumer advocates say to skip the AppleCare+ and just get the phone fixed if you need the repair.  And the new AppleCare for business is supposed to be especially bad.  Why?  Because it only lasts 2 years... so if you break the phone after this, you wasted the money.  And independent repairs are cheap these days, so why pay for something you are not likely to need?

So there you go Orange County and communities.  iPhone repair Lake Forest options a-plenty!  Find the best solution for you and get that iPhone Screen repair attended to.  It is the 'OC' after all and looking good matters!
