faq – frequently asked questions

a few questions that are asked again and again:

do you offer support over the phone?

we only offer support via the telephone for our regular customers. however, it is not difficult to become a regular customer: after our first appointment and the first bill, you already belong to this illustrious circle. try it!

can i also come to you with a windows PC??

we generally offer our support only for apple devices with OSX or iOS. only exception: when it comes to a windows solution on an apple device (eg with parallels or bootcamp).

do you repair iphones or ipads?

no, unfortunately not. we specialize in repairs on apple laptops (macbook, macbook pro, macbook air) and apple desktop machines (imac & mac pro). if you have a broken iOS device, we will be happy to advise you on any possible backup options.

can i buy apple devices from you?

no, unfortunately not. we do not trade with apple devices – this frees us up and allows us to better advise our customers. often older devices are still running well and may only need some “love” or an update, or a new (faster) hard drive. should a device arrive at the end of its lifespan, we will gladly assist you with a useful purchase consultation.

my apple is slow and takes forever while starting or opening programs. what can I do?

in the case of a system udpate, one must always take care to ensure that the computer is also designed for it. sometimes a computer works much slower after the update; or that in older devices, the latest software (programs, operating system) no longer fits the old hardware (processor, memory, etc.). but that doesn’t mean that the solution is always a new computer. in many cases it is enough to upgrade the memory or switch to a solid state disk (SSD). here mactrix also gladly helps with swapping disks and dubbing of the data. ask us, we will advise you!

viruses on apple machines? are there any and how do i protect myself?

that there are no viruses on apple devices is a repeatedly cited argument for their use. but this is (unfortunately) only partially true. of course, there are viruses that can cause damage to apple computers – even if that happens quite rarely. with caution, you’re already on the safe side – but if you want to make sure and take cation, you can use an anti-virus program such as the freeware avast.

my apple device keeps asking me to make an update. should I do that or not?

there are two kind of users: the so-called “early adopters” who instantly install each new update – and the latecomers who wait a bit. one must also distinguish what an update it is, so for example security updates should always be made.

if a computer works well, there’s basically no reason to update to a newer operating system. here we recommend to wait and see what other users experience after that update and if it brings difficulties or bugs. it always has to be considered whether third-party software is used – these applications do not always offer the necessary drivers or updates for a new operating system so you might end up stranded with a non working software after an update.

mackeeper? what is that and do i need it?

mackeeper is a software that pretends to make your computer faster or to keep it “clean”. we strongly advise not to install or use this app. the benefits are more than controversial and there are easier ways to improve the performance of the computer. if you would like to know what is going on with mackeeper or other programs of this kind and how to uninstall them, please contact us – we are happy to help!
