Now that we are all seemed tethered to our mobile phones, it is especially stressful when they break or malfunction. If your iPhone is broken, you will then be suddenly cut off from the real world, unable to text, talk, Google, and perhaps, worst of all, update your Facebook and twitter account, or play gaming apps in your phone. So, what really happens when your phone hits the pavement as well as cracks like a fragile egg? Or just suddenly it won’t turn on? Maybe it is something basic, but that is not always the case. Whatever the case of your iPhone might be, it’s never a good idea to attempt fixing it on your own. Even if you have little background with electronics and a set of screw drivers at home, chances are that you will just end up creating more damage to your phone. Let us take a look the most common iPhone issues and whether or not it is wise to try to repair them on your own.
1. Worn Out Batteries of iPhones
Unfortunately, rechargeable batteries really wear out over time. Usually, after about one year, you will probably notice that your iPhone does not last longer between charges. Aside from that, Apple makes it really difficult for iPhone users to replace a battery, and trying to do so will void the warranty provided by the manufacturer since it involves opening up the iPhone. Of course, you are out of warranty after the first year anyway, but it is still a tricky kind of electronic repair.
Apple said that they will replace an iPhone battery that is out of warranty for $79 and probably, you can be able to find a local iPhone repair near me that will offer the same, but possibly for a lesser amount of money. But, if you are comfortable working with electronics, then you can also buy inexpensive toolkit and replacement batter, which is often around $15, then search for tutorial videos you can find online.
2. Busted iPhone Screen
Certainly, it is not the fault of Apple when gravity attacks your iPhone. This is the reason why a broken iPhone screen is not covered under the warranty of iPhone. As a matter of fact, statistics show that the cracked iPhone screen is considered as the number 1 issue experienced by most smartphone owners.
It’s certainly a long shot and you can’t probably fix it yourself, unless you have proper training and many years of experience in repairing smart phones. While you can also buy iPhone replacement screens from local stores just like with replacement batteries, opening your phone will also void the warranty and if you’re not experienced and knowledgeable enough in repairing iPhones, then chances are that you will only end up creating more damage to your iPhone. An on the spot study on how to repair your iPhone will not bring you any good, which is why online tutorial videos are certainly not your best buddies for now.
