"Apple products very rarely go wrong, which is one of the reasons why I'm such a big fan of Apple. But when they do go wrong - such as that time when my iPhone smashed its face on the tarmac, or the keyboard of my MacBook drank half a cup of coffee - it's good to know I can rely on weFix to fix things up. weFix are friendly, professional, and amazingly quick. That's why I'm such a big fan of weFix too."
