Discontinuing iPhone 4 and 4S Repairs

It’s been over 6 years since the release of the iPhone 4S and 7 years since the release of the iPhone 4. We have decided it is time for us to discontinue these repairs for several reasons:

  1. High-quality, reliable parts have gotten hard to find.
  2. Very low demand. In the past month we’ve fixed about 2500 devices as a company and less than 20 of those have been the iPhone 4/4S.
  3. Our core values dictate that we are great at the things we do and that we choose to do things that we can be great at. Unfortunately, with only 20 repairs across 15 technicians in the company there is no way for us to keep all of our technicians great at this repair. It’s hard to be great at something you only do once a month or every two months (especially if the parts are questionable). In addition, it’s getting hard for us to train new technicians on this repair because we see it so infrequently.

For all these reasons, we will no longer be formally offering this repair.

That said, many of our stores do still have parts for these devices and at least one or two technicians that are great at doing the repair. If you need an iPhone 4 or 4S fixed, don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll see if we can help.
