To those of us with Apple products, iFix is the solution to all problems when our fruity technology goes nuts. This one-stop repair shop has gone from strength to strength in its first six years, having already serviced well over 50 000 iPhones, iPads, iPods and Macs. They have now released their latest offering, aimed at the Apple user with a penchant for DIY- uFix.
uFix is a concept straight from the innovative mind of iFix founder Alex Fourie. He noticed that, while so many repairs were being successfully carried out by his company, many users wanted to- and were capable of- doing the repairs themselves. Rather than dissuade these home-schooled masses, Fourie decided to put the power in their hands with uFix- Africa’s first platform that offers self-repair kits to customers.
The repair kits contain all the tools, videos and parts needed to fix the more minor breakages of Apple products. Not only do they give users the chance to play repairman; they also save a lot of money on minor repairs. Added to this is the security that the highly trained iFix technicians are always on call and ready to help for all those whose effors go a little pear-shaped.
