Some Apple Premium Resellers will have their own machine to repair iPhones directly

Apple Premium Resellers are the solution to consider if you don’t have an Apple Retail Store nearby and need to repair a Mac or iOS device. If a store has this category it means that there is a team of technicians inside, with Apple certificates and the necessary tools to be able to open and fix the terminals.

But there’s a problem: Premium Resellers don’t have the ability to make all the repairs, and in these cases what they do is order the repaired part or simply send the damaged terminal to Apple for the company to fix it. That’s why in some cases the repair wait is several days. But it seems that this may change in the future with the arrival of a new machine .

ComputerCare Authorized Support has revealed that it was one of the locations selected by Apple to receive a device that calibrates iPhones directly in its store . This allows the entire repair process to be done from the shop, without Apple having to receive and repair handsets.

The machine (Motherboard photos) supports iPhone 6s or later, and the calibration process takes about 15 minutes . Compared to the multi-day process of sending and receiving, the time saved is obvious. ComputerCare will be able to repair iPhone in a matter of hours depending on its workload – something that until now was only possible at the Genius Bar on the Apple Store (and keeping your fingers crossed that they’re not overworked).

It is precisely this saturation that may have moved Apple to give more freedom to its authorized services. With so much demand to repair iPhone units, one solution may be to make it easier for all Premium Resellers. If they manage to promise a repaired iPhone in a matter of hours, the work would be spread much more widely .

At the moment only three services authorized in the United States will have that machine. Hopefully Apple will expand this idea internationally.
