Fixit Guides - DIY Mac, iPod and iPhone Upgrades And Repairs

If you have an Apple Mac, iPod or iPhone, then you'll know just how unfriendly they are to the average DIY repair or upgrade enthusiast. Sure the Apple Support site has manuals and some basic upgrading instructions but they're usually limited to how to change your laptop battery or upgrade the memory.

However, US-based Mac parts site iFixit have an excellent set of step-by-step tutorials on how to upgrade or replace just about anything on a portable Mac, iPod or iPhone. They even have a useful knowledgebase for help with troubleshooting problems.

The Fixit Guide Series covers Mac laptops, Mac Mini, Airport Extreme and iPods, etc. Each Fixit Guide has detailed disassembly instructions that walk you through the process of easily accessing and replacing batteries, hard drives, screens, and more so it's a valuable resource for anyone wanting to support or upgrade Apple kit. Also, if you're lost when sites mention things like Lombard, Pismo, 2nd Generation or 3rd Generation models, then don't worry as they also provide a very good set of resources to help identify which device you have.
