December Recap: Open Repair Marches Onward

Using the iFixit app for car repair

It’s sure been an exciting December at iFixit. Here’s a quick recap:

  1. Repair guide website embed
  2. The world’s first repair API
  3. Free iPad app
  4. Complete repair guide DVD ISO downloads

(Oh, and we also threw an epic Christmas Party for our awesome team.)

I hope you’re picking up on the trend here: We are 100% committed to getting repair manuals into the hands of the people who need them.

This is a really exciting time to be teaching repair. We’ve built the world’s first repair publishing platform, and it’s available to anyone and everyone to share what they know. Every guide you post on iFixit is immediately pushed to the iPad app (and any other applications using our API), generated as a downloadable PDF, and queued up for inclusion in the next batch of DVDs. How cool is that?

Your knowledge can have a truly global reach, just by taking a few photos in your workshop. Once repair knowledge is on iFixit, the sky is the limit. We’re making repair accessible to everyone, everywhere!
