The holidays are just around the corner, and Black Friday looms upon us. As the official device-repair partner of the University of Central Florida and the Boston Red Sox, iFixYouri knows tech inside and out. If you’re starting to think about gifts and looking for something a little modern, we’ve done the brainstorming for you.
Rock Out With Your Plug Out
Cut the cord with Bose SoundSport Wireless headphones. High audio quality and 6 hours of battery life makes the SoundSport great for athletes. Unlike the Apple AirPods, a lightweight cord keeps the buds together, so don’t worry about losing them!
GREAT FOR: runners, iPhone 7 owners
Netflix and Chill?
If someone you love only has a “dumb” TV and is still being forced to watch Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube on a small computer screen, buying them a Roku is an act of mercy. We recommend skipping the new Roku 4 and grabbing the oldie-but-goodie Roku 3. Just plug into a TV and have instant access to practically everything the web has to offer. Subscriptions required for most services, but that’s the way the world works nowadays.
GREAT FOR: your parents, your grandparents
Solve the Case
At iFixYouri, we repair hundreds of smartphones a day, most of them damaged by drops. Protecting your phone with a case is highly recommended, and yet, we can’t help but notice all the naked devices we see in the wild. We get it; why spend all that money on a gorgeous rose-gold iPhone then cover it up with an ugly, bulky case? Don’t worry, there are some in-vogue iPhone cases out there for both girls and guys. Kate Spade has a new line of hardshell and wallet-style cases in classic designs that go with any outfit, and Native Union integrates a hand-carved wooden slat into each of their slim CLIC Wooden cases.
GREAT FOR: clumsy fashionistas
