We've got some useful pages that will teach you how to take photos and write your own repair manual, help us build and organize a Q&A knowledge base, and add new kinds of devices to iFixit. And a whole lot more.
iFixit was started in 2003 by Luke and Kyle in a dorm room at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Since then, we've grown a bit.We started out fixing an old iBook together. There were no instructions on how to do it, so we started the way everyone does: the hard way.
We tinkered. We fiddled. We broke some tabs and lost a few screws. But we fixed it!We attempted to fix some other laptops but had trouble finding parts. So we bought a broken computer on eBay and stole parts from it. Then we decided to start selling the parts ourselves, and iFixit was born.
We help thousands of people repair their devices every day. Why do we do it? Because companies like Apple don't provide repair parts and documentation to end users. We believe everyone should have the right to maintain and repair their products.
