Scott Baker, the owner of Mister Mac in Wimberley, Texas, said, “Being a part of the Independent Repair Provider program has been a huge help to my company, employees, and customers.” “Since joining Apple, we’ve earned excellent support, and we’re happy to provide our customers with the same quality of service. It has also sparked real enthusiasm in our town.”
“For us and our customers, the Independent Repair Provider program has been a very good experience,” said Nils Weber, project manager for Pro Repair GmbH in Germany. “We were able to adapt our company to meet the sudden high demand for mail-in repairs from our customers during COVID-19 because we had reliable access to parts.”
