If you are like me, then simply playing around with the software installed on your Apple gear just doesn’t seem to be enough any more, I enjoy opening up the device to see in innards, as well as exchange the default parts with better upgrades. One thing however that hinders many Apple fans from opening their Mac or iDevice are the screws that Apple uses, well now there is a new toolkit on the street that will help ease the process. iFixit’s has just released two new and improved toolkits.
The 54 Bit Driver Kit is perfect for the DIY enthusiast, and it won’t break your bank at only $25. Here’s some of the additions to the new kit:
- Pentalobe bits to open the iPhone 4, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro.
- T7 through T20 security bits to fit Torx security screws with a pin in the center.
- A full line of metric nut drivers.
- JIS bits to fit the screws found in digital cameras, R/C helicopters, and other high-end electronics.
- A custom adapter to allow our small precision bits to be used in standard 1/4” screwdrivers with larger handles, ratcheting handles, or torque drivers.
- A 60 mm extension that doubles as a T-handle, making it easy to get extra torque and remove stubborn screws.
The Pro Tech Base Toolkit is the larger option with every tool you need for your geeky arsenal. It comes with the 54 Bit Driver Kit included, which is a great deal for $60. Here are the new additions:
- 54 Bit Driver Kit
- Anti-static wrist strap
- 4 plastic opening tools
- 4 precision tweezers
- 4 metal spudgers
- Small suction cup
- iFixit ruler
- Custom-made tool roll
Whats great about the Toolkit is the fact that you can use it for so many different devices, not only Apple Products, I used the screwdrivers previously to open up my PS3, and DVD player.
You can order both kits on iFixit’s website just in time for Christmas!
