Apple announces iPhones can now be repaired at all Best Buy stores in the US
According to the announcement, Apple's expansion to every Best Buy store across the US, will enable more convenient access to Apple repairs to customers in cities including Yuma, Arizona: Sioux City, Iowa; Twin Falls, Idaho; Casper, Wyoming and Bismark, North Dakota.
In addition, Best Buy's Geek Squad has more than 7,600 newly Apple-certified technicians that will be able to offer same-day iPhone repairs or to service other Apple products that customers bring to Best Buy stores.
With the addition of all the Best Buy stores in the US, Apple now has more than 1,800 third-party authorized service providers spread across the country, on top of the Apple retail stores that have the qualified staff for repairs.
The number of third-party Apple authorized service providers has tripled in the last three years, to the point that eight out of ten Apple customers will be within 20 minute reach of a service provider.
