We are iRepair
iRepair India has five official service centers across Bangalore (Koramangala and Varthur), Hyderabad, Manipal and Chennai. Now in its ninth year of business, iRepair India is the country’s most experienced after sales service and support brand for Apple devices. It has serviced 20,000+ customers across the country and brought thousands of iPods, iPhones, iPads, MacBooks and Apple Watches back to life.
How we began
The year: 2006. The location: Bangalore, India. Harsha P. J., then a second-year engineering student from Bangalore, was excited about an iPod Photo (60 GB) that he had acquired from Dubai at an affordable price.His joy was short-lived.
A few months down the line, Harsha’s iPod started giving him trouble and so he decided to try and get it fixed by Apple directly. The quote he received was almost equivalent to the price of a new iPod. So Harsha did what any enterprising engineer-aspirant would do – he decided to literally take things into his own hands! Not only did he fix his iPod and resurrect it from the brink of death – but he also uncovered a new business opportunity.
In 2008, iRepair India was born. Aside from their higher education pursuits, Harsha and co-founder Ajay Hegde (then an MBBS student) set up a rudimentary website that allowed them to connect with individuals in dire need of their iPod repair services and called it ipodrepairindia.com. The duo conducted their ‘operations’ in coffee shops in under 30 minutes, cementing their expertise and focus on customer service right from day one. In 2010, they were joined by Suniel Gupta – Harsha’s MBA classmate – and in 2013, the trio set up their first service centre in Bangalore’s Koramangala area – a hot spot for the city’s vibrant start-up scene. From repairing devices in coffee shops, iRepair India has now spread its wings across South India and remains one of the most trusted Apple Service Centers.
While they each come from different professional backgrounds, their passion for Apple devices and the service industry ensures Harsha, Ajay and Suniel remain personally involved in many Apple device hardware repair procedures even today!
Despite being a practicing neurosurgeon, Ajay balances his role as a doctor and co-founder of iRepair India with precision. He holds an MBBS from the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, an MS in General Surgery from JSS University and is pursuing an MCH in Neurosurgery from Manipal University.
Harsha is one of the founding members of iRepair India. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and an MBA in International Marketing and Economics from the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan-Marshall University MBA Program.
