Moving on though, I hope you had time to watch Apple’s presentation at this year’s WWDC. There were a few very exciting things that Apple announced including its iOS 5 and OS X Lion, among other things. I am going to let our resident OS X expert, Eric, discuss the new features surrounding Apple’s newest version of its revolutionary OS and what it is going to mean. Regarding iOS 5, you can read all about it here. I am most exited about Notification Center, the updated Camera App, and PC Free.
Its been a hot past few days here and this weekend, I am very much looking forward to break out my meat smoker and engage in one of the best Kansas City Traditions ever, BBQ.
Until Next Time,

Well, this isn’t breaking news or anything now, but I would like to take a little time to talk about today’s announcement of the iPad 2. First and foremost, kudos to Steve Jobs for showing up. It’s sad knowing that his health has been an issue lately, but inspiring at the same time to see his dedication and commitment to his company and to all of us Mac users. I can’t really say much about it but THANKS STEVE!!
That aside, I am really impressed with the feature-set announced for the new iPad 2. “Thinner. Lighter. Faster. Facetime. Smart Covers. 10-hour battery.” I don’t want to get into too many details about it, you can read it all here, but the thing that excites me the most about the iPad to is the Garageband app. We already know what the iPad is capable of after hearing the Gorilaz’ album, The Fall, which was created on an iPad. Now the possibilities are even greater as far as music creation goes. Oh yeah, another thing I love…HDMI out!!!
Needless to say, iResQ will be offering a full line of services and repairs for the iPad 2 so stay tuned.
On a different note, we have just added two new repair services for the Verizon iPhone 4 in addition to the Verizon iPhone 4 Broken Glass, LCD, and Digitizer Repair Service:
Good luck trying to get an iPad on March 11th. I anticipate them selling out quickly so you better camp out if you know whats good for you!!

Its amazing how quickly devices can get broken once they are released. Since the Verizon iPhone 4 was released, we have been seeing more and more of them come in for screen replacements to the point that they are equaling AT&T iPhones in our facility for repair. To commemorate this momentous occasion, we decided to share some cool before and after pics of a Verizon iPhone Screen repair/replacement.
Check out our Verizon iPhone 4 repair page here. We are just about ready to launch the full line of repairs for this iPhone in addition to the screen replacement service we currently offer, so keep on checking in.
One more thing before I leave. For all of you Apple and tech lovers out there, Gizmodo.com is a fantastic, must visit site. After perusing through their site this morning, I stumbled on this article for what is probably THE BEST iPhone 4 case out on the market, the iPhone 4 LifeProof Case. I’m definitely going to get one before I go on vacation. Check out LifeProof’s video about the case here and tell me this thing is not the coolest iPhone 4 case ever.
Until next time folks.

Good afternoon everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day. If you didn’t get the opportunity to check out our Pink iPhone 4 backplates, read Brian’s recent blog post for a refresher. Since we added the iPhone 4 baby blue, red, and pink glass backplates to our store, they have been a hit. My personal favorite is the red backplate. It looks pretty darn nice if you ask me. Please note, though, the color backplates that we have in stock are ONLY for the AT&T models. They do not fit on the Verizon iPhones. At least not yet
Now lets talk about the subject of today’s blog post: Verizon iPhone 4 Camera Removal. In the short time that the Verizon iPhone has been released, we have seen a lot of them coming in for camera removals. And, you guessed it, we have perfected the camera removal process and can remove both the back and front facing cameras for only $19!! And, if your company requires a written statement by us to verify that the camera’s have been removed, we will provide that to you free of charge. All you have to do is ask. Thats it! If that’s not top tier customer service I don’t know what is. We pride ourselves in having the best customer service standards in the Apple repair industry. If you have any questions about any of our services, give us a call, we’ll have a real life person on the phone ready to assist you. If you want to engage in some online chatting with one of our sales reps, just head over to our main site and click the chat bubble on the bottom-right corner of the screen. Or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you prefer email correspondence. The point is, we are here to help you. Period.
Regarding Verizon iPhone 4 repairs and services, as of now, we are just about ready to launch a complete list of Verizon iPhone 4 repair services so stay tuned!
Talk to you soon!

Well, it hasn’t been long since Apple’s iPhone 4 was released to the Verizon Network. We were able to get one in the shop and take a closer look at the insides comparing it to AT&T’s version. We saw a significant amount of differences between the two. Below you will see a side by side image of Verizon’s iPhone 4 and AT&T’s. We noted some of the differences seen from simply popping open the back case and removing a cover over part of the internal components on each device.
A. Frame- If you compare both versions of the iPhone, you will notice that the frame on Verizon’s version is different. I don’t want to make too many assumptions, but maybe this change in the frame is due in part to fixing the notorious antenna issues.
B. Cables- Inside AT&T’s version of the iPhone, a good amount of cables (including cables for the forward facing camera, headphone jack, and power button among others) were connected to the logic board on the top-right of the phone. These cables are missing in Verizon’s phone and are connected to the left side instead. Again, is this to solve the antenna issue of the older iPhone 4?
C. Docking port flex tail cable is slightly different in each version. It connects a bit higher on the Logic board than on the AT&T version.
D. The vibrating mechanism on the top right corner of AT&T’s iPhone 4 seemed to take a journey to the bottom left of Verizon’s iteration of the phone.
We have just scratched the surface here. This is just a few of the more obvious differences between the two devices. We have already confirmed that an unmodified AT&T iPhone 4 backplate can not be installed on Verizon’s due to the new form factor of the frame. Parts on each of these devices will more than likely NOT be interchangeable. In response, we have created a Verizon iPhone 4 repair page in addition to our original AT&T iPhone 4 repair page. As of now, we are finalizing our stock on Verizon iPhone 4 repair parts and will be ready to roll out the full line of Verizon iPhone repairs VERY shortly. In the mean time, if your Verizon iPhone 4 is broken, cracked, or not working, give us a call. We’ll be happy to give you some info on the repair options available to you.
Man, it is COLD OUTSIDE!!!! Wow. I don’t think I’ve been colder in my life. I’ll just have to remember not to run to my car after work so I don’t slip, fall, and break my precious iPhone!!!!
Until next time folks.
