It has been an exciting time to be an Apple owner in the UK. Over the last year iTechnician has come into the industry and totally shaken up how Apple repairs are conducted. Prior to the iTechnician arrival Apple customers with broken devices had no idea where to go besides Apple to get their products fixed and even if they found someone willing to fix their products they might have been far away. iTechnician has changed this all by introducing a network of Apple technicians around the UK and all you have to do to contact them is follow the instructions above and enter your post code, select your Apple device, and click search. In no time a local iTechnician nearby will contact you back with a repair quote. iTechnician is still growing but our users have given us some incredible website growth over the years and we decided to take the time to say thanks.

Apple is regarded as a luxury brand around the world because of its off the chart pricing for electronic items that almost any other competitor would sell at a much cheaper rate. Increasing prices when competitors are selling cheaper may sound like a bad idea but, with Apple creating high quality products and having a brand name that is trusted it seems as though people are still turning to them. This becomes clear fact when we look at the estimated hardware shipments from Forbes saying that this quarter has been record breaking. 54-56 million iPhones, 25 million iPads, and 4.6 million Macs. All these numbers breaking the sales record for a single Apple quarter. How did Apple do this? In the rest of the article we will discuss just that! Continue reading

Seth Froom was in this exact situation in 2012 and after the events unfolded he went to work to never let it happen again. His solution? An iPhone stun gun.
