For example, I broke my iPhone 7 screen, and Apple was able to do a same-day screen replacement at the Apple store. I don’t have AppleCare+, so Apple charged me the “full” price for the screen repair, which was $129. But if I’d paid $129 for AppleCare+ ahead of time, the repair would cost me $29. That means I actually paid less for the screen repair out of warranty. But if I broke the same iPhone again within the two years, the second $29 screen repair would put me way ahead.
I simply can't say enough about Shiva and his staff at Marin Mac Tech. My main design computer (27" i7) had a hard drive meltdown... and although I back up all client files to my server, there was a ton of stuff on the i7 that hadn't been backed up. Shiva worked miracles and was able to recover most of the data, and got me up and running quickly with a new SSD drive installed with the latest OS X. I'm telling you, if you need a company that knows its $hit and can get the job done for a reasonable cost, Shiva and Marin Mac Tech is the place to go. I'm having them come upgrade my server next week! Five Stars!

Apple includes a one-year limited warranty with all hardware so if there’s a manufacturing defect, you’ll be covered. To also protect against accidental damage, plus extend the original warranty for longer and enjoy free tech support, you can opt to purchase AppleCare+. Here’s what it is, what it covers, and what you can expect to pay. Is AppleCare+ worth it? Only you can decide for your own situation, but this should be everything you need to know to make a smart choice.

Awesome, responsive service.  Could not be happier with how timely, knowledgeable and friendly Shiva was.  He showed up when promised, kept me appraised of what he was doing, and worked very efficiently.  We had our new system up and running in no time - including a large transfer of data from an old system.  I would recommend Shiva and this company without hesitation.

I normally never write reviews but was so impressed with Shiva that I just had to post a comment.  He not only immediately identified the reason my computer crashed but also quickly cleared up additional, long-standing issues I'd been having.  In just a couple of days I had my computer back with its new hard drive up & running & all the data loaded back on.  I'm a happy woman!

My laptop was so slow, it would have improved my life more being used as a door stop. I didn't want to give up on her though and buy a new one. I wanted to avoid the hell that is the Apple store and Marin Mac Tech was the first to appear in a search; it was one of those times when the universe aligns perfectly. I feel so lucky to have had Shiva work on my 2011 Macbook Pro! It's becoming increasingly rare to find someone passionate about the professional service they provide, this is not the case with Shiva, his thorough knowledge and passion for craft assured me that my computer was in very capable hands. After a hard drive replacement and service, my computer is running better and faster than ever! I am so happy. Thank you .Thank you. thank you. I will be referring my clients and everyone I know to Shiva and Marin Mac Tech.
Before rolling out the paid chat support, Apple had to develop a new web payment system that would allow it to accept payments through chat and keep user info secure when transferred between support agents, according to our sources. Using the new web payment system, we’re told Apple plans to offer the ability to set up hardware repairs and replacements that require a hold on a credit card or pay per incident fee via chat support. Rather than having to call in, users will be sent a link that’s live for 24 hours in order to complete the payment.
