We’ve been working hard on adding a few new services for the iPod Touch 5 and iPod Touch 6. One of the difficult ones for any repair center is to repair the charging port…you know, that port where you plug your A/C adapter into?
The charging port on the iPod Touch 5 and 6 are soldered in place and you won’t be able to just have any old repair shop replace this for you. Apple charges an arm and a leg for the “repair” on this one; when in fact they don’t repair it but rather just replace it for you.
I know that it doesn’t sound like that big of a deal, but if the lightning port fails, then the entire device just becomes useless. You won’t be able to charge, sync, download or upload. It will just be a pretty paperweight.
We have the parts in stock and have already replaced these for customers that are in need – my technicians are fully trained and ready for action. Now this service is available directly on our website or you can call in to place your order.
iPod Touch 5 or 6…how can you tell the difference? Let’s discuss.
It’s not easy, but on the iPod Touch 5, there’s a “loop button” that you could attach a lanyard to…and the new iPod Touch 6 doesn’t have it! The differences are on the inside. The Processing chip is one of the two biggest upgrades in the new iPod touch. It matches the iPhone 6 with a 64-bit Apple A8 SoC – a huge step forward from the 2011-era A5 found in the old model.
The camera is the other big upgrade in the new iPod touch. Its rear camera has the same 8 MP resolution that the last four iPhone flagships (starting with the iPhone 4s) have had.
The great news is that we re now offering a full line of repairs, and have already satisfied several customers (fixing broken screens mostly!) So if you find yourself having problems with your new Touch, give Mission Repair a call.
We’ve been able to procure better pricing on these screens so we are able to pass the savings on to our customers!
Our iPod Touch screen repairs have been on the rise; with the release of the new iPod Touch 6 from Apple (with the A8 chip and M8 motion co-processor that is going to be amazing for gaming!) soon there will be a market for iPod Touch 6 screen repairs as well. Those are “coming soon” to Mission Repair.
If you’re an iPod Touch (5th gen) user there is no worry and starting today we are offering a new lower price for you to enjoy.
Have a good morning, it’s starting off as a great week here at Mission Repair!
It’s fitting because I’ve been in the iPod repair business since the first iPod was delivered to anxious customers- do you remember these beauties?
Well times have changed since the 1st Generation iPod was delivered; no touch-sensitive “anything” there. They had a spinning click wheel and greyscale screen. I bet my kids would have a good chuckle if I handed them one of these and said “here’s your iPod”. In fact, that sounds like a great idea!
Fast forward to today and we’re fixing iPods by the thousands here at Mission Repair. There was one noteworthy anomaly in May that caught my eye. iPads took second place just behind the iPods by just one less unit. That’s in interesting shift to iPads and I’m certainly going to keep my eyes on that. We might see iPad overcome the iPod as the most proliferate repair at our business soon. Times are-a-changing!
Remember Mission Repair when in need of that iPod Repair – I’ve been doing them since 2001. Wow.
What about the second customer…did we even get a second customer you might ask?
We did open up on Monday of this week, March 17th 2014, and I’d like to thank all of these people that came in on Monday to visit our new location and set up repair orders with us:
Keith V. (again!)
and of course, our very first customer, Jim. G. who came in a little early!
We wouldn’t have had a successful opening without you. There’s an unbelievable amount of effort that goes into starting a new location and because you watched and listened and read our newsletter you made the effort to come in and check out our new location. It was a fantastic “christening” and fire test for us, thank you all for becoming the newest friends of Mission Repair and Mission Repair Express. I sincerely appreciate every one of you.
