Common iPhone malfunctions

Updated: Nov 28, 2022

Broken or cracked iPhone screen. This is one of the most common malfunctions in iPhones (and smartphones in general) which is usually caused by dropping the device or not optimally protecting the device from falls. Unlike devices from similar companies, repairing or replacing an iPhone screen in an iPhone repair laboratory will not cost a price that is close to buying a new device and in most cases is worth repairing. There are cases where due to the fall additional components of the device were damaged and this can reduce the viability of repairing the device, but this can only be confirmed by a technician.

Corrosion. The iPhones may develop corrosion when in contact with water in both the external and internal components. When bringing the device to the technician, he will be able to quickly tell if the damage was indeed caused by water, since most Apple devices are equipped with technology that is used specifically for this.

Problems with the charging socket of the device. This is a malfunction that in some devices can lead beyond malfunctions in charging the device to malfunctions in hearing sounds using the headphone jack and more. This fault is considered a simple fault when the charging socket usually has to be replaced and it is a fault worth repairing.

A battery that breaks down quickly. If the battery of your iPhone runs out significantly faster than the start of use, the battery may need to be replaced. Batteries have a certain lifespan and it is natural that they should be replaced, but it should be noted that when you start to notice this type of malfunction, it is recommended to repair the iPhone immediately because faulty batteries can leak, swell and lead to additional malfunctions.

All the faults mentioned are repairable immediately in an iPhone repair laboratory, except for cases where these faults are only symptoms of more serious faults. The costs of the repairs vary from one iPhone device to another and also according to the type of fault. Sometimes it is necessary to replace components, chips, resistors and capacitors on the device's motherboard when even this type of faults can be repaired relatively quickly but their cost is considered higher.

When should you not repair?

As mentioned, the common faults in iPhone devices should be repaired in most cases. Both when it is a new device and when it is a device that already has a long history, it is recommended to get a quote on the cost of repairing the device and make a comparison of the new device that you are interested in buying. There are typical faults that result from wear and tear, such as an old battery that, after the device's battery is repaired, for example, will be able to last like a new device's battery, so there is no point in replacing the device.
