Setting Up an Apple Watch

Have you recently bought a new Apple Watch and need to set it up? Or have you got a new iPhone and need to re-sync your Apple Watch?

Apple watches are simple to set up and with this helpful walkthrough, it is as easy as pie. For setting up a new watch firstly bring the apple watch close to your iPhone, make sure both devices are on charge while setting up. You will need the "Watch" app on your mobile device, once downloaded open it up. The next thing you will need to do is pair the two devices together, the Watch will now show a pretty blue bubble of undulating dots, while the iPhone will open up the camera and direct you to center the viewfinder on the Watch. If the camera-based pairing isn’t working for any reason, you can tap the "i" button on the watch to bring up a six-digit code, which you can enter on your iPhone to pair the two devices together.

Next, you are instructed to click through a variety of other steps such as wrist preference, register your Apple Watch with Apple via your Apple ID, Location Services, Siri, and Diagnostics. Once you have completed these steps you will be asked to set up the security settings, this will be a numeric passcode. This next step takes a good while. The Watch needs to get a lot of information and apps. You’ll see a radial progress indicator around an Apple logo.

The last step would be personalising the watch, this is things including setting up watch face, adding and deleting apps and then your watch is ready to go.

‘What It Says On The Tin’ – Apple Product Repairs

Let's face it, it’s happened to all of us. You've just downloaded some music onto your iPhone, or installed some new software on your iPad, or have an important presentation or exam coming up which is entirely reliant on information stored on your Mac, and suddenly something's gone wrong.

Your computer and your Apple device are refusing to talk to each other or your Mac's refusing to boot. There's no Apple Store in sight and all your local computer repair places only know how to fix PCs. That is exactly the situation we at iRepairs Harlow exist to deal with. Whether your problem is software or hardware-based we can quickly diagnose and fix it at an extremely reasonable cost. From the cracked screen on your iPhone to your seemingly ‘bricked’ iPad, bring your ailing device to us and you will know it is in safe hands.

We are literally family business consisting of father, son and partner, so you can be guaranteed personal service rather than the anonymity of the larger stores and corporate outlets. Between us we have many years of experience and education in IT, electronics and servicing Apple products, so if it's fixable, we can fix it.

All iOS device fixes come complete with a one-year warranty, and we offer a same-day service, depending on the severity of the problem, with iPhones repaired while you wait. If it's just the screen that's the problem, you can pick your model from our website in advance so we know exactly what we're dealing with and are ready for you before you come in for an appointment. Anything else we will be happy to diagnose once you bring it in.

But we don't just do repairs. We also sell refurbished equipment, and, more unusually, offer lease finance to new start-ups for computer equipment. We can offer anything from £1000 to £15000 of lease finance to cover both hardware and software, offering the same terms and conditions whether you're a brand new business or have been trading for a decade, and whether you're a sole trader or a limited company.

This is an excellent alternative to purchasing new IT equipment, and can free up other sources of revenue to deal with any other overheads you may have.

If you any questions about Apple apps or Apple products in general, please contact the Team here at iRepairs Harlow. We’d be delighted to help.

iRepairs Harlow – Not Just Broken iPhone Screens!

Without doubt the most common problem our customers have is cracked and broken screens on the Phones. We’ve all been there, you can drop your phone from the first floor window and it’s fine – it slips out of your bag and falls two foot onto a thick carpet and it’s cracked and the display in illegible. And always at the least convenient moment!

At iRepairs Harlow we pride ourselves in that we can ‘turn around’ cracked screens in as little as half an hour, often whilst the customer waits on the premises. Other very common problems with phones include battery issues and a damaged charging port.

What customers might not realise is that we are proficient in the maintenance and repair of ALL Apple products (except for the watches – the screens of which contain a special chip installed by Apple). We have large contracts with schools for example, who supply their students with iPads, which become damaged regularly. One school in Kent sends us upwards of 15 iPads a week! We also work with corporate clients, many of whom work on iMacs and need to have specialists in Apple products close to hand.

We also refurbish ‘previously loved’ Macs – updating them to a much higher spec. Once we’re happy with the ‘new’ mac we pack it up with a bundle of software, give it a six-month warranty and throw in three months of free technical support too.

Another service we offer is iMac Leasing with lease finance available to New Start Up Businesses. This, of course, allows you immediate access to a new mac without having to pay the full price up front and has the added advantage of allowing you to offset all lease payments against your annual taxable profits as full tax relief on any leased equipment should reduce your tax bill.

Offering lease finance to new businesses is rare in today’s economic climate. We are unusual in that we offer the same terms and conditions for a Start-Up as for a company established for 20 years! We can provide from £1000 to £15000 of lease finance to new businesses, which can include both hardware and software.

If you have any questions on Apple products or are in need of advice or repairs please contact The Team here at iRepairs Harlow. We’d be delighted to help.
