Important Factors to Consider When It Comes to Apple Repairs

Almost every person in the world has a mobile device of some kind these days. A high volume of these devices are Apple products. These contain the well-known iPhone and the iPads, which is the mobile tablet. Mobile devices offer convenience, they enable to stay in contact with colleagues, customers, family and friends while on the move, whether it’s answering a call, receiving an email or emailing through an important document.

When something goes wrong with your mobile device, your world can come crashing down around you. The funny thing is that you won’t realise how reliant you are on your Apple product until it stops working and then you are stuck without your contact list, without emails, without internet and you have to revert to your PC computer to help you manage your messages and work.

When it comes to Apple repairs you can’t simple drop your device off at any store. You need to choose a reputable company that has years of knowledge and experience working specifically with Apple products. While you may assume that all mobile devices are created equal, they are different in the components they use, the systems that operate them and so much more. Finding a company that can fix your device and provide you with a good quality service is imperative to getting your device back up and running again without delay and reducing the risk of losing all your valuable data.

The first thing you are going to want to do is ensure the company you choose for Apple repairs has a good reputation in the mobile repairs industry. You can type the company name into your search engine and go through the results. Find online forums and independent review sites where past customers have written down their experiences and shared it with the world. This can help you narrow down your search and identify the companies that are going to be able to help you get back up and mobile in the best possible timeframe.

Experience is essential when it comes to Apple repairs. Many people will choose to take their device to an Apple store, which is an option, but this is the same as taking your vehicle for repairs at the dealership. It can be expensive and with the number of devices they work with daily, you could find yourself missing your phone or tablet for a week, two weeks or even a month or more, depending on what is wrong with it.

Further don’t let price be your only deciding factor when it comes to Apple repairs. While price will play some role, you also want to ensure that you are getting the best repairs possible. Focus on the company, how long they have been offering this type of service, their reputation and their customer reviews. Use this to make your final decision, rather than focusing on price alone. Of course if all the companies you have selected for Apple repairs come out equal, then enable the price to play a role in your decision, combined with turnaround time.

Ensure the company you choose for Apple repairs can provide you with a guarantee once they have completed the work. They should believe in their own quality of work, sharing this trust with you in form of a guarantee. The guarantee should last a short while, enough time to ensure your device is working properly. In the event there is further issues, they should be willing to take back the device and carry out the work completely free of charge.

How to Get The Best From Your Monitor Calibrator

How to Get The Best From Your Monitor Calibrator

You’ve bought your monitor calibrator, installed and updated the software, connected the measurement instrument and you’re all ready to make your first display profile. Accurate on-screen color is just a click away.

Or is it?

Before calibrating and profiling a monitor for accurate color display, there are a number of ‘pre-flight’ checks you should carry out to ensure that the results you get are as good as possible.

Uniformity assessment: It’s not worth attempting to profile a display if it significantly fades at the corners or has a localised color cast, as any judgements you make will be affected by this. A quick way to visually test uniformity is to set a neutral mid-gray desktop pattern and close all windows. Older-style CRT displays usually have controls that allow you to adjust for mis-aligned screen display and various other screen geometry faults, but there isn’t anything you can do about a faulty LCD panel; be aware that LCD manufacturers do specify tolerances for uniformity and defective pixels.

Clean the screen and position the measuring device: LCD panels don’t attract dust the way electrostatically-charged CRTs did, but it still settles there, and fingerprints won’t help your calibration efforts either. Make sure that if you have a colorimeter with suckers for attaching to glass CRTs that you don’t press it against an LCD panel as it could pull the front membrane off when you remove it. All recent colorimeters for use with LCD displays ship with counterweight arrangements that allow the instrument to rest against the front panel. It usually helps if you tip the screen slightly backwards, to ensure that the colorimeter stays flush to the screen and doesn’t move during measurement.

Resolution and bit-depth settings: LCD panels are best run at their ‘native’ (maximum) resolutions. Most LCD displays support lower resolution modes for compatibility with older video cards, but it may interfere with color rendition as well as image sharpness if you run the display at lower settings. If you’re not certain whether you’re running at maximum, it’s a good idea to check this and that you’re running the display at maximum color (bit) depth – see your operating system help for how to do this, but you should have ‘millions’ of colours, 24- or 32-bit selected.

Display warm-up: It’s crucial that you let your display warm up before attempting to calibrate and profile it. Although CRTs were always known to require a warm-up period to stabilise, it is also true for LCD panels, though once warmed up they then remain more stable than CRTs. Allow at least half an hour.

Energy and screen savers: Disable anything that is likely to change or shut off your screen before beginning profiling. Most screen-saver timings are based on user input activity and won’t necessarily notice that a calibration application is running. Given the warm-up requirement even for LCD panel displays, it makes sense both for calibration purposes and for general working to disable anything that turns the screen off too quickly.

Ambient lighting: Changing the luminance (brightness) on a calibrated display to allow for changes in lighting conditions will invalidate your calibration. Aim to achieve consistent lighting instead. Some display calibration and profiling tools (and some displays) offer ambient light adjustment options that are intended to compensate for changes in the lighting environment. These should never be used.

Arrange things so that the display is the brightest object in your field of view but don’t work in a completely dark room; lighting levels similar to those that are comfortable for watching TV are appropriate. This will help increase the apparent contrast and reveal more shadow details in your images. A monitor hood (included with many high-end models) may be helpful here. When measuring your screen for calibration and profiling, do switch the lights off, draw blinds or curtains, etc, to minimise the chance of stray light getting into the measuring instrument and giving false readings.
