Did you miss us? We are back with an all-new Tales From IT, where our host reveals some of the biggest challenges and greatest successes he’s had working as an IT consultant. Today we will be showing a new side of IT, the one where a company gives you room and board to work for them.

Maniac has fifteen years of iPhone experience but rarely uses it in a corporate setting. It just so happened that a major company he started working for exclusively used iPhone and iPad mobile devices, and the people using them would be in regular need of repairs and upgrades. Since most of his peers at the company were Android exclusive users, they had a disadvantage troubleshooting Apple’s quirks.

The second day of work, a third-party software update was released that bricked a large number of older phones and put them in an endless shutdown loop. Maniac was asked to fix them and if possible to recover the important data locked in each of the broken phones. He succeeded. Within two days his peers referred to him as the “iPhone Guy”. How did he do it? Watch the video below to find out!
