While they’ve become ever more popular over the last 20 years, Apple products are rarely within the purview of local computer technicians due to Apple’s certification process and strict warranty policies. We are among the rare exceptions as an Apple Authorized Service Provider. That means we can not only work on your Apple devices without voiding your warranty but our work can be covered by your Apple Care and/or Apple Warranty.

We’ve been trained to meet Apple’s rigorous service standards on their hardware, software and how to generally offer the same repair services you’d normally get from Apple. We use genuine Apple parts certified by Apple for use in their computers and other devices. Add in our top-notch customer service and local accessibility, and you have one of the best Apple repair experiences out there.

So if your beautifully designed Apple products are slowing down or starting to fail, don’t despair; bring them to us for repair. We’re open 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday. Feel free to call us if you have any questions or want to learn more at 207-773-8324.

Don’t Replace When You Can Repair

The unfortunate reality of electronic devices is that they’re very difficult to recycle effectively, and they always reach a point where they are no longer current and capable of meeting your needs.

This isn’t really an issue of “built-in obsolescence” so much as an issue of advancing technology and standards leaving older devices behind. 

That being said, if we can all squeeze another year or two out of our phones, laptops, desktops, tablets, and other electronics, we can save a lot of space in landfills and avoid “e-waste” that hurts the environment and our wallets since we’re stuck buying new devices.

This is where Necessary Technology comes in.  We love helping our customers keep their computers and personal electronics running smoothly and quickly for long years.  This is as true with iPhones as much as it is for desktop Macs or MacBooks.  We help you keep your hardware running, so you don’t need to replace it.

What People Are Saying

Probably the best experience I’ve ever had with a tech repair company. Every single staff member was friendly and knew what they were talking about. Plus they took the time to explain anything I didn’t grasp. They saved my MacBook pro twice in a week! Just fab service. Thanks guys!

Coco M.

This team saved my a$$! They restored an old hard drive, manually copied over 16,000 photos and videos and now we have access to all of our kids baby media. I was only charged for a software update, which was required to make the data transfer. I’m feeling so relieved 😎

Jon A.

Very knowledgeable and bent over backwards to help me!

Sruli D.
