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

Cracked iPhone 5S Screen? Stop By Mission Repair!

IMG_6162It’s a beautiful morning in Kansas City and it’s supposed to be sunny and 73 degrees this afternoon! We are excited and ready to prop the doors open in the office : ) On a great day like today, there is nothing worse than dropping your precious phone only to pick it up and find it has a shattered screen. That’s where Mission Repair comes in.

I’ve noticed lately that we have been getting more and more iPhone 5S phones in for repair each week and for good reason. While it isn’t the newest device from Apple it is still an awesome phone and why replace it, when you can simply repair it? The number one repair on these devices is a screen repair and for a limited time we are offering this service for $92! That’s a great deal and more gentle on your budget than replacing it with a brand new iPhone.

Our iPhone 5S Repair for $92 includes parts and labor and also comes with a one year warranty against any defects to the replacement screen. Even better? Our service also includes our Got Repair benefit in which if we replace the screen and you come back a second time with a cracked screen we’ll replace it again for HALF the cost of the original repair. It’s our way of saying ‘Thank You’ for being a Mission:Repair customer.

Whether you are local to one of our walk-in locations or are shipping your device to our repair center – our certified technicians will take care of your cracked screen and get your device back to you in no time. Questions? Give us a call at 1-866-638-8402 or email sales@missionrepair.com today!

IMG_6027That’s right, lowest price ever! A couple weeks ago we lowered the prices on a few services including iPhone 5 Screen Repair, iPhone 5C Screen Repair and iPhone 5S Screen Repair.

For a limited time you can get that shattered screen on your iPhone 5 for only $92. Does your iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C have cracked glass? We’ll repair that for $92 as well. There is no coupon necessary, sale valid only while supplies last.

Just double check that pricing…

Hello all-

I’ve got a new iPhone 6 that’s giving me trouble. The home button is acting funny, luckily I’m still under warranty and I’m going to be able to get it replaced from Apple under warranty. That’s great news for me albeit Apple will swap my device and I’ll have to restore it from a backup, but in the grand scheme of things I’ll get it done.

Mine is a bit "sticky".  I'd open it myself, but it's under warranty so I don't want to risk it!

Mine is a bit “sticky”. I’d open it myself, but it’s under warranty so I don’t want to risk it!

What I found interesting though, is Apple’s repair pricing for their iPhone lineup if you’re NOT covered under warranty. For example, they would charge me $329 for the home button issue if it was out of warranty.

I dug a little deeper and looked at the iPhone 5s, 5c and 5 repair pricing and I was blown away. $269. Really? $269?!? iPhone 4 repairs are $149? Here at Mission Repair we’re doing the iPhone 5 line of screen replacements on these devices for $92 each. Apple is charging $269? Seems a bit over-priced to me, AND the customer doesn’t get their phone back, but rather a “blank” replacement. So there’s a lot of work that needs to be done to get the data back on there for some people.

We don’t erase your data, unless you ask us or authorize us to do so; so you’re going to get your device back in the same configuration that it was sent in. That’s the good news. And oh yeah, our price doesn’t make you want to lose your mind. Screen repair pricing is based on reality, not fantasy.

Bottom line is that it pays to double check your pricing, and we’re happy to be an essential part of the iPhone repair movement. After all, we’ve been here since the beginning and we’re here to stay.

Take care, Ryan
