Apple has completed a huge expansion of its Apple authorized service network with nearly 1,000 Best Buy stores across the U.S. now providing service and repairs for Apple products.
Tara Bunch, Apple’s vice president of AppleCare, says that, by expanding to every Best Buy store across the U.S., customers in cities including Yuma, Arizona; Sioux City, Iowa; Twin Falls, Idaho; Casper, Wyoming and Bismarck, North Dakota will have more convenient access to Apple repairs. Plus, Best Buy’s Geek Squad has nearly 7,600 newly Apple-certified technicians ready to make same-day iPhone repairs or to service other Apple products.
Apple-certified repairs at an Apple store or an authorized service provider are performed by trained experts who use genuine Apple parts, according to Bunch. Every repair is backed by Apple.
In addition to Apple retail stores, there are over 1,800 third-party Apple authorized service providers in the U.S. Bunch says this is three times as many locations as three years ago, meaning eight out of 10 Apple customers will be within 20 minutes of an authorized service provider.
