Gadget Man – Episode 173 – Repair your own Apple devices?

I’m back again for a new episode of the podcast which features me chatting to Lesley Dolphin at BBC Radio Suffolk about Apples plans to allow their devices to be repaired.

Pretty much everyone is in shock at this decision, which isn’t quite as welcome as it could be.

Listen in to the stream to find out more!

 

Repairing your Broken iPhone

From the vast selection of apps to the in-built Apple Music to the cost-saving iMessage; the array of exciting and creative features on offer are in their abundance. Is it of any surprise that so many people own an iPhone? It is certainly at the top of the tree when it comes to mobile phones.

However, as is the case for all gadgets, there are some common issues with the iPhone. This is not to take away from the brilliance of the product. From various televisions to computers, to indeed smartphones; there are always a few issues. As they say; nothing is perfect. So, here are three of the most common problems experienced with the iPhone…

  • A lot of people experience issues with their battery, such as quick drainage or inability to charge. 
  • Another common issue with the iPhone is problems with the home button. 
  • And then there are the clumsy individuals who drop their phone. Many repair companies will tell you that their biggest request is for iPhone screen repair. 

If you experience any of these issues, don’t panic! There are plenty of companies out there offering great iPhone phone repairs. However, this does mean that you need to be a little bit more mindful when deciding what repair company to utilise. There are a lot of businesses that use the Apple name to capitalise on the company’s popularity when in truth they have no training regarding the iPhone and thus their repair service is not of a high standard. To ensure you don’t end up in the hands of these businesses look out for the following attributes…

  • Genuine Apple parts – One of the first things you need to do is make sure that the company in question utilises 100 per cent genuine Apple parts. The importance of this cannot be underestimated. After all, Apple uses high-quality parts and if the repair company was not to match this then all it would do is further compromise your iPhone. 
  • Warranty – The best phone repair companies provide a warranty. This is imperative, even if the warranty is only of a month’s length. This shows that the company is confident with their repairs and you know that you are covered if any recurring issues arise.
  • Good reputation – Last but not least, do a little bit of research and read reviews which have been left by previous customers. This is the best way to get an honest assessment of what the company is all about. If a company is not genuine or does not provide a good service then you will easily be able to sniff this out online. 

Hopefully, you now have a better idea regarding the most common iPhone issues and how to deal with them. If you have an iPhone then it is always a good idea to have a quality repair company at hand just in case trouble arises. After all, most people can’t afford to go a day without their phone!
