Apple just announced that all Best Buy locations will offer authorized repairs on all of its products, including MacBooks, iPhones, and iPads. The repairs will be conducted with genuine parts from Apple and screens.
Although many Best Buy stores have offered this service, this new partnership extends the offer to nearly a thousand stores. “Best Buy’s Geek Squad has nearly 7,600 newly Apple-certified technicians ready to make same-day iPhone repairs or to service other Apple products,” Apple said in a press release this morning.
Best Buy also offers a word of advice for those who need screen replacements for iPhones. It notes that customers should schedule their appointments and drop off devices before 6 PM local time, at which time, customers may be able to walk out with their devices that same day.
