Watch This: Hugh Jeffreys Does a Super Cheap MacBook Pro Repair
YouTube videos about gadget repair offer a specific thrill — and some useful advice
A specific thrill of YouTube is watching someone complete a highly-specialized task. It’s what cooking channels like Bon Appetit, restoration channels like mymechanics, and that viral glitter bomb video all have in common.
YouTuber Hugh Jeffreys, and countless other creators, tap into this with their tech repair videos. Jeffreys mainly fixes and modifies Apple devices, but he dabbles in Android smartphones from time to time. They’re calming videos you can watch in the background while you’re cooking, but they’ll also teach you how to repair your own device.
Repair is the only way to create a sustainable tech industry, so anything that educates and entertains on the subject gets a letter of recommendation from us.
