Attention!! On february the 12th there will be major road works at Dansaertlaan in Dilbeek.
We would advice you to avoid the exit 11 and continue to exit 13 (direction Dilbeek Ninove), then take the 2nd right Baron R. de Vironlaan to the Westrand - cultuurcentrum Dilbeek and via the Arconatistraat (cemetery) to the Stationstraat (right) direction of the railway station. You will find us, as always, in the last street on the left before the railway station and the crossing.
The road works are organized in phases and your GPS will surely present you alternatives; the one described seems the most simple and fast. For all the details on the phases: https://www.dilbeek.be/themas/mobiliteit-openbare-ruimte/projecten-openbare-ruimte/heraanleg-dansaertlaan

We cannot emphasize enough the importance of a good backup.
This is crucial to prevent the loss of your data.
A hard drive or SSD is not infallible and can become defective at any moment.
In order to create a backup of your Mac, you only need to connect an empty external hard drive. When you do so, a message will appear asking wether you would like to use this drive as a backup drive. Confirm that you want to use this drive as a backup drive and Time Machine will start the initial backup immediately. Simple and very effective.
More information can be found at here.
A backup from your iPhone, iPad or iPod can be made by iCloud as well as iTunes.
More information can be found at here.
Which system do I have?
In order to verify which Mac you own, you can click on the Apple logo on the upper left corner of the screen.
Choose the option "About this Mac".
On an iPhone/iPad/iPod you can find this information by navigating to "Settings" - "General" and "Info".
Here you can find all kinds of information.
For example, you can verify the version of macOS / iOS, the installed storage, wifi,...
Here you can also find the serial number. Using this serial number we can create your repair, we can verify which type of device you own and verify the possible options.
In case of doubt, you can always give us the serial number in order to check the possibilities.
Repair (restore) your device with persistent problems.
If your iPhone / iPad / iPod / Mac / Apple Watch responds oddly or behaves peculiarly, then a restore might come to the rescue.
This means that you erase your device completely and install iOS / maOS afterwards.
We advice you to make a backup of your device first.
The restore of your iPhone / iPad / iPod can be done in two ways: using iTunes or on the device itself.
When you use iTunes, you will need the latest version, connect your device on the computer/Mac, click on the iDevice icon on top and click on restore.
On your iDevice you go to "Settings" - "General" - "Restore" - "Restore all content and settings".
Your iDevice will reboot after the restore.
If you have a Mac, you can boot up by pressing Command-R (offline) or Option-Command-R (online) to get into the recovery mode.
More information about this can be found at here.
Battery problems can have all sorts of causes, therefor it is interesting to check out a few things.
Always update your device to the newest software, this might solve some battery related problems.
Check all the settings. For example, when the brightness of your display is set to the maximum, the battery will drain a lot faster.
On both Mac and iOS devices you can check whether there is an application which consumes a lot of power.
Charge your device completely and let it drain until it is completely depleted to recharge it all the way to 100%. This will recalibrate your battery.
More information can be found at here.
We can guarantee 90 days of warranty on the installed part because we work with original quality parts
When there is still factory warranty, obviously this applies.
If your device is at the end of the warranty period and you have no possibility to visit us in time, we advise you to contact Apple Helpdesk in advance to create a file. This can avoid warranty problems. You can contact Apple helpdesk at 0800 80 407 (dutch) or 0800 80 404 (french).
The average time needed for the repair depends on the type of defect and, if applicable, the moment when we receive the approval of the quote.
We estimate an average of 2 to 5 working days for computers and 2 to 7 working days for iPhones (under normal delivery times of the Apple parts).
For iPhones you need to remove Find My iPhone first before we can start the analysis. For an iPhone, iPad, iPod and Apple Watch we advice you to create a backup of the device because all the data will be erased.
The more information (ex. passwords / access code / clear description of the problem,...) we receive, the faster the repair will go.

Did your Mac become slow? Is your iPhone battery completely consumed?
Buying a new device is not the only solution, you can choose to upgrade your device at ARC. This is qualitative and yet less expensive.
Check the options below...
Is your current Mac too slow? In this case an upgrade to an SSD is the solution.
An SSD works 5 to 10 times faster than a classic hard drive.
SSD's are not mechanical, this makes them less sensitive for shocks.
This benefits the lifespan.
We can do the SSD upgrade for you and make sure your data is transferred seamlessly.
Ask a quote here.
Do you work with a lot of programs simultaneously or with programs that are memory intensive? Is your Mac way slower when you use several programs at the same moment?
Adding extra memory can improve the overall speed when you are using these programs simultaneously.
We can do the upgrade for you.
