In 1982, a family in the US bought a microwave oven. In 2012, thirty years later, the microwave was still working. In 2017, a young lady purchased an iPhone upgrade and a protective case. Four months later, with a splintered screen from a few bounces on the floor, the same young lady must purchase a new phone.
This anecdote makes a vital point about electronics in this fast-moving technology age: they just don’t make ‘em like they used to.
It also raises an important question: what should we do with electronic devices we don’t use anymore?
Let’s dive deeper into the problematic issue of e-waste.

Digitisation is something that sounds easy enough, but in practice it is a lot more than meets the eye. In 2018, most of what we do regarding media and shopping is done online. Because of that, many companies, including ourselves, put a lot of time, effort, and money into making their digital footprint large enough to get noticed.
Every autumn is a sort of Christmas for Apple users, as it’s when Apple’s long-anticipated iPhones release to the public. This year, Apple fans are in for a treat. We at iPhonefixed.co.uk are no exception to that, so we wanted to give you the low-down on what’s coming this year for Apple iPhones.
It happens every year. The newest iPhone comes out and we get excited about the new features. When it’s announced we think, “maybe I’ll get it at some point”. But then we start to see the new phones in person, we see their awesome features in action, and we start to look at our current iPhones with a tinge of disappointment in our eyes. This is just one of the many reasons where being able to your iPhone fast with iPhonefixed in Cardiff comes into play!
Another year, another iPhone. Every year, autumn’s Apple Keynote Conference comes upon us and Apple fans find themselves swimming in new software and hardware from the beloved company. This year, fans will still be getting new releases… maybe even more than they’re anticipating.
How many times do you check your phone a day? Is it a modest amount? If you’re like most in the modern world, it’s not. Many of us are addicted to our phones and don’t even realise it. We’re never just checking the time, are we? We’re thirsting for notifications, eagerly checking our phones for an excuse to unlock them and use them. We’re full-blown addicts.
When a new iPhone gets released, there are typically two schools of thought: there’s the school of people who don’t see a reason to upgrade, and there are those who are excited to get the new tech in their hands.
Everybody has heard the news by now. The fancy new iPhone 8 and it’s more impressive bigger sibling, the iPhone X, have finally arrived, and people are getting excited about the unveiling of all the features within it. Like it’s two predecessors, the new iPhones come in the standard 5.5 inch size and the plus size at 6.3 inches. But whenever a new iPhone model comes out, current iPhone holders always beg the question: is it worth the upgrade?
It’s a terrible fear for many of us. Your iPhone accidentally breaks and you’re now facing the costly repairs and long lines at the Apple store. However, there are a lot of places in Cardiff, or your town, advertising iPhone repairs. How do you know who you should trust with your expensive device?
Like all businesses within the UK and indeed, worldwide, we are monitoring the impact that COVID-19 is having on our business and customers.
We are very much aware and respectful of the Government’s message that all non-essential services must close from immediate effect – 23rd March 2020.
We must play our part to protect the most vulnerable in our society and to ensure that the NHS has the ability to care for patients that will be affected by the virus.
We look forward to staying in touch and welcoming you back when we reopen.
