There’s no denying that the iPhone is an extremely popular piece of kit. This is thanks to many reasons – not least of which is Apple’s extraordinary talent for marketing and making their products desirable to a huge range of people. Apple also have a reputation for very solid build quality. Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean that iPhones are invincible – as those with more clumsy grips and experience with software errors will no doubt have realised.
iPhone Repair Issues
Thankfully, the popularity of the iPhone is such that any problem you encounter will have been solved by thousands of users before you. So without any further ado, here are the solutions to a few common iPhone repair problems. For iPhone screen replacement, though, you’ll have to go to a professional.
Replacing the Battery
The iPhone does have something of a reputation for poor battery life, especially amongst older models. But just because your battery is terrible, doesn’t mean that you need a whole new phone. Replacing the battery is fairly cheap and is an easy repair to perform yourself – with other brands it’s as easy as sliding off the back cover, popping out the old battery and inserting a new one.
