Cupertino Phone Repair Joins the Effort to Reduce Distracted Driving

Cupertino Phone Repair (Cupertinophone.com) is pleased to announce they're joining the fight on reducing distracted driving by launching "The Parent's Guide to Teen Driving Distractions" Cupertino believes that parents can significantly increase their teen's vehicle safety and has provided the guide with tips and education to help the cause.

Each day an average of 11 teens die while texting and driving and over 46% of teens admit to texting while driving.  "With these staggering numbers, it's important that parents become more aware of the realities surrounding their teen drivers and take quick action to reduce the number of casualties" said Laxmi Agrawal, Founder and CEO of Cupertino Phone Repair.  "We're joining the fight and hope that our visual guide will help parents across the world protect those that mean the most to them".

The visual guide offers parents great suggestions such as teaching by example, ensure hands free devices are used in teen cars and even signing a pledge.  Cupertino strongly believes that with a few simple steps taken by parents, distracted teen driving will be reduced and lives will be saved.

Cracked iPhone Screen.

Many of us have experienced those dreaded milliseconds when you watch your iPhone fall from your hands and land with a thud on the ground.  We desperately hope that by some miracle our phone survived the impact.  However, we pick it and discover that the screen is shattered into a million little pieces.  You let out the mandatory expletives and then ask yourself NOW WHAT?    

With over 150,000,000 iPhones sold in 2013 alone, it's no wonder there are now so many options for fixing a shattered screen.  You can send it back to Apple, buy a "do it yourself kit", or have an independent third party fix it.  But what is the BEST option for you?  The following infographic details the pros and cons of the three best options an iPhone user has when they've broken their screen

First in the US to offer iPad 4 Repairs

We became the 1st repair shop in the Nation to offer iPad 4 repairs. With iPad 4, Apple has changed the design of how the Home Button connects to the Logic Board. It makes it very difficult to do a Glass replacement as you have to be very careful with the Home Flex.
