ATLANTA – They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but that’s not true at the iHospital. In this Tech Check, FOX 5′s Doug Evans reports on the new hospital that has opened its doors for broken Apple products.
The iHospital just opened in Atlanta, and they’re already seeing disasters ranging from broken iPad screens to cracked iPhones. The doctors at the iHospital specialize in iSurgery, and they say repairs to iPhone screens and battery troubles are their most common complaints.
If you have a broken Apple product, the iHospital says it’s a good alternative to sending the product back to Apple—especially if the device is out of warranty. The turnaround is usually a couple of hours—and at worst, a couple of days—at the iHospital, compared to four to six weeks with Apple.
iHospital also claims their repairs are less expensive. They use genuine Apple replacement parts, which protects your warranty with Apple.
But the best advice for protecting your Apple device? Buy a case—a very good case. Experts at the iHospital recommend the OtterBox . It’s almost twice as expensive as a regular iPhone case, but if you drop your phone, experts claim it’s strong enough to keep it protected.
The iHospital first started in Tampa. Atlanta’s is the second location, and the company says it will be expanding to other U.S. cities soon.
