Microsoft has backtracked on a decision it took back in January when it conditioned that computers without a special registry key would not receive any more security updates.

IPhone Battery & Screen Repairs - Caution

Be careful where you take your IPhone 7 and higher for battery or screen replacement!

The newer model IPhones are water resistant. Failure to properly reassemble such phones removes the water resistant internal components and generally makes a mess out of the interiors. This will shorten the life of your phone.

Recently almost all the IPhone 7 and higher that had been opened by another repair center prior to our service had damaged or missing waterproof membranes. A few were such a huge mess inside it was amazing they still worked.

Please take your phones to an Apple store or a reputable repair center.

Caution:

If you are purchasing a tablet or mobile device make sure you get the unlock code from the retailer. These devices are being shipped locked to prevent theft.

KEEP THE CODE ON YOUR RECEIPT!

Here are the details "The DiSa PoSA solution is the world’s first digital asset-protection solution. It digitally locks devices during the manufacturing process through a software upgrade in the firmware. The lock prevents theft by rendering the device inoperable from the point of its production, through the supply chain, to the point of sale, whether the sale takes place in-store or online. The device remains locked until the legitimate buyer, during setup, activates it by using a unique code that is printed on their retail sales receipt. Once activated, the device remains permanently unlocked and fully functional"

If your system locks itself after purchase (it can happen) and you need the code again, this website may be able to help.

As always we recommend purchasing hardware from the manufacturer or a reputable vendor.
