How to Disable Apple Music Auto Renewal

If you’re like me and you want to try out Apple’s new music streaming service but aren’t sure if you want to keep it or don’t want to forget to opt of the automatic payments, then this tip is for you. I found this over at The Mac Observer and I found it helpful so I wanted to post it here.

Follow these steps to disable automatic payments:

 

  1. Launch the Music app on your device.
  2. Tap the Account Profile icon in the upper left corner.

  • Tap View Apple ID.

  • Scroll down to Subscriptions and tap Manage2015-07-01 18.26.47
  • From there, tap the Automatic Renewal switch to turn off auto payments and then tap done.2015-07-01 18.29.14

You’ll still have access to all of Apple Music’s features during the 90 day trial period. If you decide that you like using Apple Music and want to pay for it, you can head back into your settings and turn Auto Renewal back on.

 

 

Need A Fix For Your iPhone 6?

Starting Monday June15, we will begin offering iPhone 6 screen repairs for $129. We’ve waited so long to offer this repair because until now the parts have simply been too expensive for us to be able to offer this service for a reasonable price and the quality of the parts available did not meet our stringent standards. We’re happy to report that both of these issues have resolved themselves. iPhone 6+ plus repairs are coming soon, too, but not yet.

Our price is still $20 more than Apple’s advertised $109. We still believe our price is reasonable considering the experience you will have when you come to us versus the experience of visiting the Apple store or somewhere else. We love our Apple devices but the process of getting your device repaired in store leaves something to be desired. Having to set up an appointment with a Genius, wait in long lines, stand in crowded lobbies, and slow turn around times can make this experience a hassle. You can expect a totally  different interaction when you step into our shop and are greeted by smiling faces that are eager to help you set up your same day repair.

I’ll leave you with this, some fantastic feedback left by one of our many satisfied customers.

I am so impressed with TechRestore. We are a full family of MAC products, including 3 iPods, 1 iPad and a MacPro. We’ve tried going to Best Buy to get these items fixed, not only did it take weeks to fix, but very costly. TechRestore, is reasonably priced and is able to get your product back to you within a day or two. They also fixed my ipod a second time for free.

This is customer service…. they deserve recognition.

Last Week in Apple

Here are some of the stories that caught our eye in the world of Apple and consumer electronics last week.

Refurbished Vs. Used

We don’t sell used products. We sell refurbished products. What’s the difference exactly? Well all refurbished electronics are used. What sets them apart is the care we take to make sure they’re in good condition  before we sell them.

ipad-iphone.jpgWhen we buy products to resell they arrive to us in varying conditions. Some products have broken screens or cosmetic damage, others seem to be totally fine or barely used. Regardless of the condition, our Apple Certified Macintosh Technicians thoroughly inspect and repair (if needed) every device before we decide it’s ready to resell.

We believe it’s the care we take, the services we offer, and the wealth of experience that we have dealing with these products thats adds value. Anyone can purchase from us with confidence knowing we stand behind the products we sell. We also offer a 6 month warranty, because some issues will not come up during our initial testing, only with regular use. We’re easy to contact, friendly, helpful and committed to resolving any issues.

Our aim is to make sure that customers have the most satisfactory experience possible when dealing with us. Customer feedback seems to support the belief that we are accomplishing our goal.

Thank You

We would like to say thanks again to Teresa Everett for making us this delicious peanut butter fudge. I told her it wasn’t necessary but she insisted on coming through with sweet treats because we came through for her on her phone. I’m glad she did, it’s little gestures like this that let you know that you’re doing things right in a service industry like ours.

MacBook Pro Retina Repair

When  you pay someone such as a mechanic or electrician to do a job, you’re paying for their expertise. You choose not to do it yourself either because you don’t have the skills or the time and it would be simpler to pay someone to do the job for you.

As experts in repairing Apple products it’s our job to come up with new and innovative techniques  to support these products. We were one of the first and only businesses to offer anit-glare upgrades for MacBooks with glossy displays.

Often times what’s easiest for us isn’t what’s best for the customer. Take the 13″ MacBook Pro LCD repair that we offer for instance.  It would be easiest for us to buy a complete display, take your old one off, and install the new one. We’d be done in no time flat and with minimal effort. Instead, we separate the broken LCD from the display assembly and replace it using a new one. This process is a bit more difficult and time consuming but the price of a standalone LCD compared to an entire new display is considerably lower. The lower cost for us allows us to pass the savings on to our customers.

Below you can see pictures of the repair process and the finished result.
