A slow computer doesn’t mean you need a new one. We’ve done all the compatibility research to set you up with the right parts, tools, and information necessary to breathe new life into Macs up to twelve years old. So go ahead, open all the tabs, say goodbye to the dreaded beach ball, and run those beefy programs with ease. Save your Mac. Upgrade your RAM.
Some people say there two kinds of iPhones in the world: those that have broken, and those that will. Maybe that’s a little too pessimistic, but it doesn’t take a lot of googling to find all kinds of stories about broken iPhones. We prefer to take a more optimistic approach to iPhone care. So, we propose a minor revision to the aforementioned iPhone philosophy: “There are iPhones that have been repaired, and those that have not yet been repaired.”
We are happy to announce the release of our complete set of free repair guides for the iPhone 5. During our disassembly, we gave the new iPhone a respectable 7 out of 10 repairability score. The two most commonly replaced components are right at the front. The display assembly can be replaced in about 15 minutes, and the battery can be exchanged even faster. Some of the other parts take a little digging to get at, but no components are impossible to remove, à la the MacBook Pro with Retina display.
