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!
