With their extensive catalogue of free hardware service manuals, ifixit is the king of DIY repair.
There should be a line of ‘get well soon’ greeting cards for people waiting for their computers to come back from the repair shop.
Their spirits are as broken as their hardware as they try to make it through the day without their faithful companion.
I had a laptop in the shop this year and what I thought would be a two day fix dragged on for for two months! I don’t know what I would’ve done if it was my edit workstation.
Next time I’ll check out iFixit first and make sure it’s not a problem I can solve myself.
With a mission to fix the world, one piece of hardware at a time, iFixit has thousands of free manuals that teach people how to fix everything from computers to game consoles to toasters.
What are the repair guides of interest to content creators?
They also sell service parts and tools for Macs, iPods, iPhones, iPads, and game consoles. So once you determine the part from the repair manual that you need, you can (in many instances) buy it right off of their site.
But more than a tech shop, iFixit is a community. Their Answers section is a knowledgebase with over 27,000 user-submitted questions and answers.
To those of you walking around with cracked iPhones and broken souls: get whole again with iFixit.
