Good news for “older” iPhones! OS 9.2.1

Hello there everyone,

AppleInsider today reported that the iOS 9.2.1 update can potentially make iOS 9 a smoother experience for people with older iPhones, according to a new series of YouTube videos featuring side-by-side comparisons with devices running iOS 8.4.1.

Although installing 9.2.1 still causes an iPhone 4S or 5 to boot slower, once in action the software can load apps as fast or faster than 8.4.1 in many circumstances, according to the article. Boot times are said to be speedier than 8.4.1 when running the software on an iPhone 5s, which was also the first iPhone with a 64-bit processor.

A consistent problem with iOS has been the tendency for devices as little as a year or two old to suddenly see slowdowns after upgrading to a new version. This is despite the fact that Apple will deliberately disable some processor-intensive features on older hardware.

A lawsuit filed last month accuses Apple of misleading customers with the claim that iOS 9 is compatible with devices ranging back to the iPhone 4S. In reality Apple is practicing planned obsolescence, the case charges, since people who update a 4S will take a performance hit but find themselves unable to downgrade to 8.4.1 or earlier — nudging them towards buying newer hardware.

We all know that these devices update and upgrade faster than our contracts allow, so unless you’re one of the few that just simply wants and can afford the newest piece of hardware every 6 months, you’ll want to extend the life of your “old” device for a long as possible to maximize your investment.  That’s where Mission Repair can help, so if you have a problem with your phone, we will be happy to take care of it for you.  If you want to upgrade your software, at least Apple is still helping some of the older units at the moment, enjoy!

See ya, Ryan

Monday Hangover? Let Mission Repair Help!

Hello M:R Nation –

Did you happen to drop (or throw) your iPhone 5 and crack your screen yesterday? Yeah, Monday can sometimes have that effect on people. You always hear people talk about Monday and how awful it can be, but you rarely hear about the aftermath of that day. Well, we at Mission Repair do and it’s called “Tuesday at Mission Repair”. We find that we get a string of folks coming into our local offices every Tuesday with a cracked screen and a “I don’t want to talk about it” expression on their face.

iCracked My iPhone 5 Screen!

Hello M:R Nation –

Did you happen to drop your iPhone 5 and crack the screen over the couple of days? Yeah, we know how you feel. Our “Hump Day” here at Mission Repair are full of heart ache from customers that call in or fill our lobby with the exact same issue. Apparently, Monday and Tuesdays are pretty hard on iPhone 5 screens. While the horror stories of how the iPhone was damaged are never usually the same, the result is usually identical, a gigantic crack down the middle of their once beautiful touch screen.

After a visit to our repair center, our customers know that we have their backs. We send them out of our doors with a new confidence… and a new screen!

Price Drop: iPhone Screen Repairs!

Hello M:R Nation –

Last week, I mentioned some things will be changing at Mission Repair! Today is the right day to announce the next set of changed. This change is better for all of us, especially iPhone users!

Last night, I called a meeting with our parts department, technician supervisor, sales team and customer service supervisor to discuss our iPhone screen repair services. The discussion went something like this: “For the last 2 months, our iPhone screen repair services have been our #1 seller! Which means we have been making our vendors VERY happy. What happens when a vendor is happy? They give us better prices!”

When we obtain better pricing, my first reaction is to always hand that savings off to the customer. But I called this meeting to test the culture of our staff and see if their mindset is the same as mine. This would obviously reflect poorly on me if I didn’t get the answer that I was hoping for. So I put it to a vote. Do we pass this savings onto our awesome customers or do we decide to change our policy and profit that extra savings? With a show of hands, 1,2,3,4,5,6 &7 – everyone voted to pass this savings onto our customers! I am very proud of our team. While I did have a little doubt in my mind of what would happen and I always have the ability to veto, they made the right choice and certainly have the Mission Repair culture in them!

Another Mission Repair price drop!

Another Mission Repair price drop!

So, lets talk about the price drops now…

Today, we are lowering prices on the majority of our iPhone screen repair services! No need to rub your eyes, you really did read that correctly! With our newest vendor discounts and the fortitude of our team, we are able to give you some pretty hefty discounts and here they are!

iPhone 5S: Was $299 Now $209!

iPhone 5C: Was $229 Now $209!

iPhone 5: Was $134 Now $109!

iPhone 4S: Was $89 Now $69!

iPhone 4: Was $89 Now $69!

These are some of the largest price drops that we have done and we are excited to save you some cash! We have given you even more reason to repair that broken iPhone and not replace/junk it!

These prices are available starting today and are here to stay forever… or at least until the next vendor price decrease! So it’s time people to finally get that iPhone repaired. I say do away with the glass shards and embarrassing looks that your iPhone produces and let Mission:Repair install brand new life into your phone!

Cheers, Troy
