Broken iPhone? Should You Repair or Replace Your Device?

Posted by 1 on

While there are going to be some times when a replacement will be the best choice, more often than not, you should find that an iPhone repair can be an excellent choice.

When you experience an iPhone not charging, you will likely find there is a need for a charge port repair. While this may sound like it could be costly, it will often be a cheaper repair than you might imagine. In many cases, it will be a fraction of an upgrade to a new iPhone, even if you are eligible for a device upgrade.


Usually, a charge port repair will come down to getting a replacement part and the installing it in your device. This will require that you have the right replacement port for your device and that you carefully install it into the unit. It will be important that you wear an antistatic bracelet during this time and you avoid touching any of the internal parts in your iPhone. Otherwise, you can cause damage to the device that will require a more complex iPhone repair that will need to be handled by a professional.

Another area of concern is poor battery life in the phone. Within the first year you have your phone, Apple will replace the phone at no charge as long as it falls into an area of their warranty. Beyond that, you need to obtain a replacement battery for your phone instead. This is often best handled by someone who has experience removing the case of the iPhone and has the batteries in stock. Usually, this is a simple iPhone repair that can ensure your device is back up and running in no time at all. Best of all, a new batter will help you to put an end to poor battery life and let you use the phone without having to ensure you can get to places for the sole purpose of recharging the device on your breaks and lunch hour.

The truth of the matter is that, most of the time, an iPhone repair will be possible, as long as you find someone who has the knowledge and tools to fix it. Everything from screens to damaged buttons can be fixed for a price. Of course, you do need to keep in mind that when you pay for refurbished parts compared to brand new parts, you will also see a significant different in prices. Your best bet is to choose a company that does take in used and broken devices and then uses parts to help you to fix your iPhone with parts from these items. That can save you quite a bit of money when you can’t afford a new iPhone and it can also ensure you keep more money in your pocket that can be used for things that may be more pressing.
