The team doesn't discriminate either: it works on all major brands and models, and in many cases, completes all repairs while the customer waits.

They’ll replace glass and LCD panes on iPhones and iPads, swap out batteries, and service charging ports and mics. MacBooks and other laptops benefit from the techs’ digital prowess with OSX installations and keyboard repairs. The technicians also service BlackBerrys and offer remote unlocking services for iPhones and most models by Android and Samsung.
