This page summarises hints shared on the Mac-Ministry List for when you need to repair a Mac, iPod, iPhone, iPad etc.

The advice on websites is of course useful worldwide. We acknowledge that the other services recommended on this page are centred on the United States. For local help elsewhere in the world, if it's not cost-effective to send your kit to the US, join the List and ask by email.

DIY repair manuals

iFixit.com is a website with extensive do-it-yourself repair manuals, disassembly diagrams, etc. You can also buy replacement parts on the site.

Jim Warholic's website covers all the iMac models in detail.

See also CATUG member Drew Janssen's page here on disassembling Apple laptops.

Hard disk recovery

To restore data from a damaged hard drive, we cannot recommend a better service than Drive Rescue, run by the very same Drew Janssen in Maryland.

Repair services

For general repairs e.g. broken screens, our members recommend the service from the following. Except where noted, they all repair both Mac computers and Apple iOS devices.
