An Apple a Day: Wiha Tools + Apple®

Wiha + Apple

As the inventors of the modern day precision screwdriver, it only makes sense that Wiha has been step for step, or more so iPhone for iPhone, with Apple®. Since the beginning, we’ve provided the tools needed to open and repair Apple and Non-apple tech devices alike.

Our Precision Screwdrivers come in a variety of styles, tips, and sets. They are available in Slotted, Phillips, PoziDriv, Hex Inch, Hex Metric, Ball End Hex, Nut Drivers, Torx, and Pentalobe. All tips are precision machined to ensure an exact fit in your application.

The handles are molded on the blade to create a permanent bond to the blades. Our handles are available in ESD Safe, VDE Rated/Insulated, PicoFinish, and our Classic Precision Handled.
