Apple have had many customers walk into their iFix branches that would’ve been able to do a repair themselves, but didn’t have access to the parts and tools they needed. iFix (the Apple Repair Specialists) thought that their DIY-enthusiastic customers would appreciate a unique repair kit allowing them to fix their own iPhones, iPads and iPods.
uFix is Africa’s first platform and online store offering self-repair kits to customers who are confident enough with their DIY skills. Our kits contain all the tools, videos & parts needed to fix the more minor breakages on Apple products. Deciding on uFix will also save customers money and make them feel good about their tech-savviness. And if you do however get stuck, their highly trained iFix technicians are happy to assist – by just sending them a mail or visiting one of their friendly branches (listed at the bottom).
uFix repair kits will be available to order online and they currently only have kits for the entire iPhone range.
They will at a later stage have kits available for most Apple products.

In 2006, iFix was born in a dorm room at the University of Stellenbosch to ease iPod owners’ frustration with the lack of service available through traditional Apple repair channels. Satisfied friends soon referred numerous iPod owners in search of repairs and the first full-time technician was hired.
After six months working from a garage, iFix opened its Cape Town branch and more staff were hired full-time to serve Cape Town’s burgeoning iPod and iPhone owners. For two industrious years, iFix operated on a drop-off system at the legendary Mabu Vinyl record shop in Cape Town. To satisfy demand in Gauteng, shops were opened in Johannesburg and Pretoria.
In 2010 iFix opened its first Cape Town walk-in store in the Rheede Mall in Gardens to satisfy the rise in demand. Shortly thereafter another store is opened at the Newlands Plaza Shopping Centre with iFix being able to help clients with immediate service and direct support. In May 2011 the franchise grew even more opening a store in Durban and the beginning of 2012 saw the opening of the fourth store in the hustling and bustling Melrose Arch.
Now with over 50,000 successful iPhone, iPod, iPad & Mac repairs in 6 years of operation, iFix is the most experienced 1-stop out-of-warranty Apple repair shop.
