(independent repair provider, hereinafter referred to as “IRP”). It is understood that hi repair can provide Apple’s original accessories as well as hi repair certified third-party accessories according to users’ needs. In particular, the use of Apple’s original accessories provided by hi repair does not affect the official warranty of the product. After the repair is completed, users can also query the current repair record on Apple’s official website. < / P > < p > according to previous reports of foreign media, Apple announced earlier that it plans to expand its independent maintenance supplier, in addition to adding more maintenance points in the United States, it will also expand to 32 countries such as Europe and Canada. < / P > < p > it is reported that the independent repair supplier program can enable enterprises of all sizes to use genuine Apple parts to repair the iPhone to ensure safety and quality. At that time, there were voices in the industry that the plan might soon be extended to China. < / P > < p > as we all know, Apple’s IOS system is closed and has basically built its own ecosystem. A person in the industry who did not want to be named admitted to the reporter that Apple’s independent maintenance supplier plan seems to give consumers a wide choice in terms of maintenance options. In fact, it may be a “break” test of their own ecosystem, especially the Chinese market. < / P > < p > of course, it’s not easy to enter Apple’s ecological chain, so how did hi maintenance become the first independent maintenance service provider of apple in China? According to official data, hi maintenance is a mobile phone door-to-door repair and recycling service platform, which was officially launched on March 6, 2015. At present, there are more than 600 qualified engineers in the platform. After five years of development, hi maintenance has opened door-to-door maintenance and recycling services in more than 30 large and medium-sized cities across the country, with all vertical control modes. < / P > < p > but Apple has very high access requirements for third-party service platforms. According to hi maintenance, since hi maintenance communicated with apple last year, Apple has investigated the platform for a long time, until it finally believes that the standardization and service of the platform in this field meet Apple’s requirements. After becoming the first independent maintenance service provider of apple in China, all maintenance engineers will continue to receive professional training of Apple care and become certified engineers of Apple care. In this regard, Wang Chunxia, founder of lega think tank, said that Apple’s introduction of the overseas independent maintenance supplier program to China shows Apple’s urgency in the Chinese market. “In the fierce competition of smart phones in China, it is a good option to retain consumers through after-sales service, which will also bring pressure to competitors.”. < / P > < p > “in fact, Apple’s independent maintenance service overseas is a measure to deal with anti-monopoly. By introducing independent maintenance providers, Apple has changed from closed to open.” Another person in the industry pointed out that the ecology provided by apple in China has a similar effect. By introducing hi maintenance, Apple has become an open system in China. This is particularly important in the context of China’s emerging anti-monopoly, and should also attract the attention of other enterprises. < / P > < p > according to the above people, hi repair is not only Apple’s first independent repair service provider in China, but also Apple’s first independent repair service provider in Asia. “The way of door-to-door service is a model that Apple has never had before. It can be said that it is the first time for apple to adapt to the Chinese market. From the perspective of Asia as a whole, this is a very bold trial of apple in China, and it does not rule out that it can be copied to other regions of Asia in the future. ” IPhone 12 whole family barrel model exposed: it’s a tribute to iPhone 4
