TechKnow Space is the best! Came in with a shattered screen with no appointment and only took 45 min! The screen is like brand new and would highly recommend this place! Staff is also very friendly and highly trained! This place definitely knows what their doing - much better than trying to book an appointment with apple. 5/5!
Hi Tessa, thank you for your encouraging comments. To ensure we keep you coming back, we will never share our secret sauce with Apple. We do hope your iPhone 6s gives you many years of happy service.
Sean (repair tech) and Ash (owner) were both a pleasure to deal with. They have the best price in town for iPhone screen and battery replacement. The phone was repaired in an hour, for the quoted price. If I could give them 6 stars I would - I had an issue with my replacement battery, and it was taken care of in less than 15 minutes, under the 60 day warranty. Thank you Gentlemen!!
Thanks so much Katherine for your very warm sentiments....makes us feel special.
Both Sean and I are delighted to receive these kind words and to know that our efforts to deliver quality service do not go unrewarded.
We appreciate your 6 stars, and hope your iPhone 6 provides you with many years of reliable service.
Great Service and very Honest. Have brought three different smart phones to this place 2 iPhones and a Samsung, all for screen replacements. All repairs were completed in less than an hour. Today I brought in my iPhone 6S because I dropped it and the speaker and charger stopped working. The repair Technician asked me to give him a few minutes and before I knew it he returned my phone in perfect working condition in less than 5 minutes and did not charge me anything. I am highly recommending this place for their excellent repair service and their much appreciated honesty.
Thank you Sam for your very encouraging comments. The iPhone 6s you refer to literally had a loose flex cable which, as experienced technicians we could immediately identify to be the issue. Accordingly, we reconnected the flex cable within a couple of minutes. We routinely do free repairs for our customers when the solutions are trivial. As you state, you had previously brought in 3 devices, which makes you our special customer, and consistently providing honest and quality service is a privilege we happily flaunt :) Thanks again, Sam. Enjoy your 6s!
Fast, reliable service plus great value and advice. Have been here a number of times for iPad and iPhone repairs and I highly recommend them!
Thank you Kate for being a happy and loyal customer. You first came to us for a repair on your two devices, an iPad 2 and a PS3 in Sept 2013, followed by a iPad 2 in Nov 2013, and then an iPad 3 in May 2016, and finally the iPhone 6 last week. We are absolutely delighted to have had the opportunity to have repaired your 5 devices in the past 4+ years. We absolutely hope you have a gazillion kids who embrace The TechKnow Space for all their digital repairs as did their mother :)
Great Service, repaired broken iPhone 6 screen (2 months warranty) and replaced the battery. (6 months warranty) Provided me with a text when the repair was completed. Very impressed and the customer service was great. Answered all my questions and would definitely go back for future repairs.

After having completely shattered my iPhone SE’s screen, I immediately looked into getting it replaced in a reasonable time frame. TechKnow was the only place apart from Apple that could replace my SE’s screen out of the five other places in the area that I had called. Compared to the Genius Bar at Apple, TechKnow was the logical choice to get my screen fixed as I was told by the employee at the Genius Bar that they needed an hour and a half to due diagnostics then another hour and a half to actually fix it. TechKnow took a total of 20 minutes to fix my phone after I had dropped it off for a fraction of the price of getting it fixed at Apple.
We are always there for you, ever mindful of your need to get the best price ("fraction of the price"), and the fastest turnaround ("20 minutes Vs 3 Hours or 180 minutes), while delivering quality service. Our store is located is at the crossroads of Mississauga, across from a huge mall offering you time for your shopping and errands, with extended business hours 7 days a week, and expert certified technicians to do your bidding!
I hear we will soon be consulting with Apple to help them improve their customer service, so....stay tuned :)
Great service...took iPhone in for battery replacement and screen replacement. Turns out it had a thick screen protector on the phone that was cracked...not the screen at all. Very happy..friendly and FAST service.
Response from the owner
Yes! Exactly why we ask all our customers to protect their screens with screen protectors, and why so many of our customers have saved hundreds of dollars! We have had numerous agitated customers walk in with seemingly broken screens. We are happy to receive their warm smiles and hugs when we peel of the screen protectors to reveal a glowing pristine screen with nary a blemish! Clearly your screen was not damaged, which is why we did not replace it, which is why we did not charge you, which is why you are our Happy Customer! Enjoy your iPhone!
Such perfect customer service, if there was 10 stars I'd rate it a 10! very fast, straight forward, no hidden cost. Best place to go! I recommend it to everyone! Love you guys❤️
We love you too :)
You have repaired a second device with us in the last 30 days....we are so honored and flattered.
It has taken many years (almost 12 to be exact) of perfecting the art of digital repairs, but we are finally ready and delighted to take our bows to customers like you, Irene!
We hope you and your iPhone 6 have many years of happy travels together!
Our best to you...from your 10-Star team at The TechKnow Space
Located in what may be the most convenient location in Mississauga on City Centre Drive, TechKnow Space offers the most competitive phone repair prices around. The best part is their 1-hour phone repair service that will have your phone up and running in no time - and you can even kill some time at the mall while you wait.
This place is as advertised. They promised a 1 hour turn around time for my cracked screen and they had it completed on time as promised. In general were friendly and professional.
Great service and convenient location, I will be returning here if the need arises to fix any other items.
Thanks Zarak, for your kind input....much appreciated.
Truth in advertising and managing expectations is what we live by!
We look forward to seeing your friends and family visit us for any repair needs....going forward.
Highly recommend it, professional and efficient service - I will return.
My iPhone screen cracked a day ago and I had no idea where to go to get it fixed. I dreaded the thought of giving up my cell for a few days to get it repaired.
I considered buying a new phone (in order to avoid being "phoneless" for a week) but decided to complete a google search and find a place that can fix my cell at a reasonable price and within a reasonable amount of time. I found these guys on google and I'm glad I did!
During my initial call, the staff person was friendly and I decided to attend the Mississauga location.
When I attended the store, staff were professional and friendly. They replaced the screen in less than 15 minutes! I attended with my two year-old and getting this done - on the spot- in less than 15 minutes was a plus!
They were very accommodating to my two year-old as we waited and they also helped me with picking out a case cover (which I'm very happy with).
Price was reasonable and my phone is good as new , location/hours were also convienant.
Hi Sandy, thanks!
Did you not find anything that did not please you! We must walk on water!
Here is the simple reason why we were on our best behavior…to impress your two-year old who we are convinced will become our lifetime customer upon turning 15
We look forward to seeing all your friends and neighbors soon :)
The staff is kind, and the service is at times better then Apples. Prices are competitive, too. Highly recommend!
Apple excels at many things. The TechKnow Space excels at bringing dead and damaged devices to life.

Great service , very quick and well executed .
I had replaced the screen myself once before and it was a major pain . It took me 3 hours, almost gave up and ultimately , I did a poor job. I don't know how they managed to do this so quickly and perfectly . They must have a man with the worlds smallest hands back there .
iPhone Touch Disease, or Touch IC disease as it is so-called is a failure of on the mainboard of the iPhone (affecting iPhone 6 Plus models especcially) that casues a degradation and eventual failure of the iPhone's touchscreen response.
Essentially you will find that over time as you attempt to interact with the iPhone's touchscreen it will become more and more difficult to activate the controls and eventually nothing will hapen when you touch or swipe.
Some are calling this problem (which Apple has acknowledged exists) a defect. However Apple's website indicates that the failure is a result of repeated drops, knocks and/or other stresses experienced by the iPhone. They are neither covering failure under warranty nor repairing the damage -- leaving affected users to their own devices to find a solution from a third party repair shop.
The cause of the problem consists of the failure of 2 integrated circuits on the iPhone mainboard - namely the U2402 & U2401 chips which require replacement in order to provide a solution.
A distorted grey band may show intermittently at the top of the display.
This distinctive grey band is usually a tell-tale sign that your iPhone is suffering from the mainboard surface-mounted component failure known as Touch Disease, Touch IC Disease or Touch IC Failure.
iPhone Back-light Problem Caused By Mainboard Damage
There are several possible reasons (other than a failed or broken display assembly) for a dim backlight or no backlight at all:
Long Screw Damage
Sometimes an inexperienced home-technician or Do-It-Yourself enthusiest undertakes to replace their own iPhone Screen. If they have not been very careful to put the same screws back into the same places a long screw may be tightened in where a shorter screw rightfully belonged. This error may result in the longer screw having been driven down into the traces on the mainboard causing a short-circuit or a broken circuit.
Diode failure may happen as a result of the drop that broke the iPhone glass and (not obviously) also caused internal damage. It is not unusual for this failure to become evident until after a new screen has been installed. This component replacement may accompany long screw damage.
Backlight Coil Failure
The least often culprit and usually a by-result of other damages -- still requiring replacement in such circumstances.
Data Recovery from iPhone With Damaged Mainboard
When your iPhone mainboard is damaged, you haven't synced your iPhone's data with iCloud, AND you consider that data to be vital business information or irreplaceable nostalgic photos and videos (for example) -- you may not yet be completely out of luck!
There is more than one approach to go about recovering data from a damaged iPhone.
1. The iPhone doesn't work but powers on to the point where when interfaced with a computer and software data recovery is possible.
2. Repairing the mainboard damage sufficiently to allow access to the iPhones memory and using a host computer and data recovery software.
2. Removing the on board storage integrated circuits and recovering data from the on-board flash storage using a specialized iPhone flash IC host.
Bring your damaged iPhone in to us and we will determine the best (if any) method to recover your iPhone data.
iPhone Wont Turn On Due To Mainboard Damage
An iPhone that doesn't turn on after damage to the mainboard as a result of impact, liquid exposure, heat etc. is not necessarily bricked forever.
Depending on the circumstances that led to the damage there may be a short circuit, an open circuit that should otherwise be closed, or a capictor or other surface mounted 'power-management' component may be damaged.
Extensive testing using microscopes and infrared heat sensors to specifically identify the damage, and subsequently repairing circuits or replacing components with micro-soldering and reballing tools is required.
The entire process of repairing an iPhone that has mainboard damage preventing it from powering on can take several days.
What Causes The iPhone Blue Screen of Death
The iPhone Blue Screen (Of Death) is a situation where during normal operation of the iPhone or when interacting with certain apps it suddenly goes to a all blue screen and may freeze - requiring a hard reboot.
Typically, there are 3 common possible causes of the dreaded Blue Screen on an iPhone.
