Adore Your Apple Mac but the Love’s Wearing thin?

Apple Macs aren’t just premium computers; they’re works of art adored by their owners. But the love wears thin when your Mac isn’t working properly.

Macs function quite differently to a traditional PC so, when something goes wrong, you want the technicians most experienced in Apple Mac repair on the job.  At MG Electronics, we have years of experience with Apple products, including iMacs, MacBook Pros and everything in between.

We know that you have a bond with your Apple Mac, so we want you to rest assured that we’ll treat it as if it were our own.

Common Apple Mac issues

Apple Macs are as unique on the inside as they are on the outside. You may think that all computers must function in the same way, but there are key differences with Apple Macs that make them unique. When it comes to Apple Mac repair, you need a technician with intimate knowledge of their inner workings.


Slow to start up and slow to use


Programs take a long time to load


The dreaded spinning rainbow wheel (that just won’t stop!)

What causes Apple Mac problems?

It’s frustrating when your Apple Mac malfunctions and needs to be repaired. You might be able to determine the cause of the problem but, oftentimes, you’ll need the help of a technician familiar with Apple products. Here are some common issues that lead to Apple Mac problems:

  • Outdated or incompatible software
  • Software glitches
  • Incorrect software settings
  • Faulty time machine backups
  • The age of your Apple product
  • Malware or virus infections (yes, Apple products are susceptible!)
  • Hardware faults
  • Battery issues with MacBooks

Why do I need to have my Apple Mac repaired by a technician?

As you know, Apple Macs are their own breed, unique in the world of computers. In fact, that’s probably why you bought one in the first place. So even if you’re familiar with PCs and feel quite comfortable tinkering around with them, that knowledge won’t necessarily translate to an Apple product.

One of the problems we come across are Apple Macs that the owner has tried to repair on their own, often compounding the issue or creating another one. These machines are premium products and they come with a price tag to reflect that. We strongly advise you not to try fixing the issue yourself and potentially make things worse.

At MG Electronics, our technicians have been specifically trained to repair Apple products, and we’ve also invested in the specialised tools and equipment needed for these unique machines. You can trust us to do it right the first time and minimise the damage to your hip pocket.

What can I do to prevent Apple Mac problems before they arise?

Like doctors, we believe in preventative medicine. There are some things you can do proactively to keep your Apple Mac running in optimum condition and maximise on longevity.

Connecting your Apple to a network


It’s a common gripe among Apple users that their machines don’t play well with others. While it can seem tricky to get an Apple Mac talking with PCs and printers, it’s actually straightforward if you know what you’re doing.

If you have a network at the home or office that includes printers, PCs and Apple machines, we can make sure it’s set up correctly and running smoothly.
