Some of Our Favorite Instagram Repair Photos from 2019

2019 has been an exciting year at iFixit! Lots of people tagged us in pictures of their repairs on Instagram—these are some of our favorite fixes we saw this year.

We started the year with our I’m a Genius campaign to remind people that they don’t have to rely on the Genius Bar or the Geek Squad to fix their stuff—all they need is the right tools. We asked you for your own “Genius” stories, and fixers all over the world shared their repair tips and stories, inspiring others to take up a screwdriver!

We saw lots of love this year for our flagship repair toolkit, the Pro Tech Toolkit. All its tools and bits make it perfect not only for electronics repair, but pretty much any little fix you need to do—and it photographs pretty well, too…

The Pro Tech tackled lots of repairs, from video game controllers…

…to suitcases

…and even remarkably intricate-looking sewing machines!

We published lots of teardowns this year, but we also received lots of user-submitted teardowns—like this pretty headphone teardown:

Our tools inspired fixers everywhere to fix the world…

…and gave us a reminder about why we do what we do.

And let’s not forget our favorite fixer of 2019:
