How to identify your Apple device

As a business, we receive many phone calls and emails everyday. And the most important question we have to ask our customers in order for us to provide them with accurate information or a price quote is …

What’s The Model Number of Your Device?

We noticed over time that most customers don’t know or have this information ready when calling or sending us an email (which is totally normal). So we decide it would be helpful and a major time saver for all of us to explain how to identify your apple device.

In order to identify your Apple device, you need to find your iOS device’s model number.

1. Look In Settings

Go to Settings > General > About. To the right of Model, you’ll see the part number. To see the model number, tap the part number.

2. Look On Your Device

On an iPhone 8 or later, to find the model number, remove the SIM tray and look in the SIM tray slot. Make sure that you’re in a place with bright light overhead. The model number is on the upper side—the side with the display.

On an iPhone 7 or earlier, an iPad, or an iPod touch, find the model number on the back of your device.

Dell XPS L502X Disassembly – Overheating Issues

Dell XPS L502X Disassembly

Had some fun yesterday with a little project that I had been putting a side for too long. I’ve owned a few computers and laptops in the past years, and my Dell XPS L502X is by far the toughest and best laptop I’ve purchased so far (bought new in 2011). This machine was subjected to many difficult environment since it was used as a DJ laptop (clubs, outdoor & indoors events, parties, etc.) and my everyday computer as well. Now I use this laptop mainly for my music and internet browsing, but it’s still powerful and fast enough for much bigger tasks.

Overheating Issues

Overtime, I noticed my CPU fan was always running high, even when the system was idling. And I was also having a few issues with 1 USB port on the back. So I decided to venture into cleaning and replacing the following :

  • USB Port 3.0 IO Circuit Board (replacement)
  • CPU Fan (replacement)
  • CPU & GPU Heatsink (cleaning & applying new thermal paste)
  • And since I was already opening up the laptop, I decided to boost my memory from 8GB to 16GB.🚀


Dust and Melted Thermal Paste

After I’ve successfully disassemble my Dell XPS L502X, I immediately notice the dust on the heatsink and fan, which was expected with a 10 year old laptop. But what really surprised me was the amount of thermal paste remaining on my CPU after removing the CPU/GPU heatsink. 🙀

Almost all the original thermal paste (from Dell) was melted off the CPU Chip, obviously causing my high temps and making my CPU fan running high all the time. 🌡

So here was the repair process in order :
  • replace the CPU fan (since the original one was VERY dirty, and I also wanted to rule out the possibility of a bad or defective fan)
  • I replace my USB I/O board.
  • Cleaned and removed the CPU/GPU heatsink
  • Removed the old CPU/GPU thermal paste and applied new Artic MX-4 thermal paste.
Assemble back the laptop and voilà! … No CPU Fan noise after booting up the laptop. SUCCESS! 🎊

Results & Conclusion

After monitoring my CPU temps, I’ve notice a drop of 15-20 degrees in heat while processor is idling, which is excellent. The new CPU Fan, USB I/O Board are working without any issues and my Memory Upgrade has given the laptop a very noticeable speed boost. 🚀

Got issues with your old PC or MacBook fans running full speed all the time? You might need a new thermal paste job done by JS Information! 😉

 

 

 

iMac 27″ Late 2013 PCIe SSD Upgrade

💥 iMac 27″ Late 2013 SSD Upgrade 💥

Our last SSD upgrade was completed on a late 2013 iMac 27″. This specific model of iMac gave us the possibility to add a PCIe SSD while keeping the original HD inside the iMac for extra storage.

PCIe SSD’s are much faster than regular 2.5inch SATA SSD’s, giving the computer more speed and overall performance. In order to gain access to the PCIe slot, we had to remove the entire motherboard, since the slot is located on the back.

Cloned the old Hard Drive over to the new PCIe SSD and voila, we have a new monster iMac! 😎 Another happy customer!
