An interesting look into the iPhone Repair Ecosystem. Personally I always recommend going to Apple, but if you are in a pinch or can’t go to Apple for any reason, this article shows why you want to do your research on repair facilities. Some are better than others.
It’s a good idea to ask repair shops to tell you about where they get their components from. The repair shops that we spoke to were forthcoming about their suppliers and the components they’re using in repairs. All of the repair shops stressed the importance of a good supplier relationship, vetting the supplies, trial and error to get the best components, and in some cases, even having a quality control team overseas with suppliers.
