Would You Fix Your Own iPhone?

Your digital media catch-up is right here.

Every Tuesday – for just a few minutes – I join Heather Backman (my old buddy from her days on CHOM FM) on the air at Jack 103 (Rogers Sports & Media) to give a quick blast about the current state of technology, media and Internet culture. We’re calling the segment Tech Tuesday (and we do it in just a few minutes).

What is Tech Tuesday?

If you ever find yourself wondering… What, exactly, is the point of TikTok? How can I make myself look better on a Zoom? Reddit? What’s that about? How do I help my kids be safer online? Who’s the latest creator and streamer that I should be checking out?

You are not alone.

This is what Heather Backman and I discussed this morning over on Jack 103 FM for a couple of minutes:

Apple Will Tell You How to Fix iPhones, Sell Parts to the General PublicMotherboard Tech By Vice.

Would you fix your own iPhone? In a big move, Apple is now going to let your average human (that’s me!) buy parts and tools so that I can do my own DIY repairs on my Apple devices.

“According to Apple, the initial focus will be on screens, batteries, and cameras but will expand next year. Customers will have access to repair manuals and can then order Apple parts and tools online. After they’ve completed their own repair they can return the broken parts to an Apple store for store credit. Apple said it will offer more than 200 individual parts and tools to help repair iPhone 12s and 13s.”

So… would you do it or have the professionals handle it?


App of the Week: City Walks – take a walk around a city (day or night… with sound or without)… it’s not exactly traveling, but it sure does give you a cool vibe of different cities.

Once the segment goes live on Jack 103, I will post it here for you to listen in, learn, share and engage….
