We often think of third-party products as awesome additions to our Apple devices; most of the time, they are. However, some people claim that cheap, third-party lightning accessories damage devices. We agree with these reports and see a dramatically increasing number of damaged phones every week. Third-party lightning accessories have been silently damaging iPhones (and other iDevices) for quite some time. If you’re using a cable or charger that isn’t Apple certified, you are risking the longevi […]
When I initially saw Apple introduce a new, cheaper iMac, I thought it would be a great thing for customers on a budget. Unfortunately, it is — without any reservations — the worst computer Apple has built in years. I’m honestly disappointed and a little disgusted by this money grab, as it helps no one but Apple. I cannot and will not recommend this computer to anyone. Keep reading to find out why this new, cheaper iMac is a complete waste of money.
In 2012, Apple transitioned the iMac prod […]

It’s time to hit the software update button on your iPhone and Mac if you haven’t already. Last Friday, Apple released iOS 7.0.6 and 6.1.6 to fix issues with the way their software interpreted SSL certificates. Today, Apple released security updates for Mavericks, Mountain Lion, and Lion. The SSL goto fail bug was a serious problem for anyone using publicly accessible networks. It’s a complicated topic and there has been a lot of misinformation spreading about it… but the important thing i […]
From 2006 to 2009, Apple ran an ad campaign called “Get a Mac.” We recently decided to bring that style to our YouTube channel. Apple did a great job of subtly explaining what made the Mac better than the PC. We hope to do the same with this short video series.
This is our second video in the Choose Fix series. We’re calling it “Olympics.” Milosh is competing in a new sport. We hope you enjoy it! […]
We fell in love with the “Get a Mac” ads that Apple ran from 2006 to 2009 and decided to bring that style to our YouTube channel. Apple did a great job of subtly explaining what made the Mac better than the PC. We hope to do the same with our 30-second videos. They should also make you laugh.
We’re calling this first ad “Experience” – it portrays our owner and Milosh discussing his time with a big franchise repair company. Enjoy! […]
We’ve had a lot of requests from clients, friends, and family asking us for advice on software problems they’re seeing with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod running iOS 7.

We’re glad that Apple gave us a great way to get rid of our software problems with the advent of iCloud. Most people will be able to fix iOS software problems via iCloud restore and avoid the Genius Bar entirely. The following ste […]

After being contacted by a third-party iPhone repair and modification company that was having an issue getting a replacement Touch ID sensor working on a new iPhone 5s, iMore did some testing. They discovered that each Touch ID sensor, though appearing identical on the outside, will only work with the phone it came with from the factory, suggesting an additional security layer that Apple decided to not to disclose.
We first heard ab […]

Data Robotics (now Drobo) was the first company to make expandable RAID storage easy, and with the current Drobo line of BeyondRAID devices they’ve now made the devices faster through the use of Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 connectivity, as well as the Drobo Accelerator Bay’s ability to use an mSATA SSD for fast caching. In this TUAW review, I’ll take a look at the Drobo 5D (US$664 on Amazon), a five-bay device designed to give cre […]
