Our iPhone repair technicians spend hours with your devices, but what do you really know about them?
I thought it would be fun to interview my co-workers so all of you can get to know them and love them as much as I do. This will be the first in a series of posts featuring the staff of Apple Pie Repair. Lance was brave and was a little too willing to be the first to answer my invasive questions.
