iHospital was mentioned in the Wall Street Journal for the second time in 24 hours! We owe our customers and fans a huge thank you for your continued support and online love.
The first WSJ mention was a video titled Broken iPad? Take It to the iHospital and talks about why iHospital is different than other repair shops. He also points out why iHospital caught his eye. And it wasn’t just our green scrubs!
Talk about great introductions, yesterday’s article in the WSJ was dubbed “In this ER, Doctor’s Operate on Pocket-Size Patients” and went like this:
The patient might have been under water too long. Only a few months old, the victim wasn’t responding. A doctor, in green surgical scrubs, rushed to his sparkling clean operating room, hopeful the patient could be saved. The iHospital is a chain of stores that fixes broken Apple products but takes Apple-care to new levels, Ian Sherr reports on Lunch Break. Photo: Julie Busch Branaman for the Wall Street Journal. After thoroughly scrubbing and putting in some new parts, he tightened the last screw and pushed the power button. The familiar Apple Inc. AAPL +0.81% logo fill the screen of the phone.

The article discusses one of the main questions we get asked on a regular basis. How do iHospital repairs compare to Apple’s own AppleCare Plus? iHospital Founder and CEO Ross Newman, AKA The King of the Apple Community, says iHospital can definitely compete. A new front screen for the iPhone costs about $150, including the cost of signing up for AppleCare Plus and the incident charge. iHospital charges between $79 – $100 for that same repair, depending on the model. The repair is also done while you wait, while AppleCare Plus can take 2 – 3 days. And, iHospital D.i.D. Doctor of iDevices offer tech support and a one-year warranty on repairs. Check our our post on Apple Care vs iHospital Repairs for more information on how they compare. You’ll be surprised!
Ross also made another valid point. “There are about 250 Apple Stores in the U.S., but there are millions of customers. They need somewhere to go to fix their products.” iHospital is happy to solve that problem! Drop by one of our locations if you are interested in upgrading your iPod, iPad, iPhone or Mac, or are in need of a repair. We look forward to seeing you!
