Why Apple is NOT a repair company

 Lets first state what many may forget. Apple is a innovative sales company, not a repair company. The primary business model for Apple inc. is to design, manufacture and create new solutions for its end users with a consistent flow to its product line. 

 The Apple Store is just that, a store to showcase it's products and new designs.  "In 2015, there were 463 Apple stores worldwide. Since the opening of the first Apple store in the United States in 2001, the number of Apple stores around the world has boomed, surpassing 200 stores after 2007 and still rising."

Warranty vs Insurance and what it means for you

A warranty is "contract" or claim between the consumer and the manufacturer that the purchased product from said manufacturer will be free of defects in materials and workmanship or it will be replaced within a period of time. Most manufacturers offer a 1 year (12-months) [limited] Warranty which vary according to jurisdiction, but commonly new goods are sold with implied warranty that the goods are as advertised.

Secrets Your Mobile Phone Insurance Company Doesn't Want You To Know

The promise of phone insurance and the reality of it are vastly different. Most people seem to think that if they “break” their phone the insurance is there to replace it with a brand new one. For some, a “broken phone” is really just a shattered screen that could have been replaced at a repair shop for about $100, but instead they send it off to Asurion and have their phone (that had a perfectly functional motherboard and had never seen a drop of water) replaced with a “Refurbished by Asurion” phone whose mobo was shoddily repaired after liquid damage by a half-rate technician contracted by the company to mass repair boards collected from other phones sent to the company from customers that don’t really seem to understand what their phone is worth.

iPhone not charging when plugged in?

Any knowledgeable electronics repair shop should be able to pretty quickly determine the source of the issue by observing if the phone draws any current with an ammeter, dry-fitting a new charging port and new battery, and observing the response through the ammeter. 

A bad tristar might still result in the phone drawing current, but won't allow the battery to charge. To be certain, a known working battery might be dry-fit onto the phone and if the phone still won't charge the new battery, then a tristar repair is indicated.

Having a phone that won’t charge or turn on is one thing, but knowing that there’s a chip inside that’s damaged and preventing it from turning on is an entirely different frustration.

How to fix iPhone battery shutting off in cold

Apple specifies that their batteries work best at a range of 0 degrees Celsius to 35 degrees Celsius. While we almost never reach the upper range in Canada, temperatures below freezing are typical for the winer months.

Because the battery meter is calibrated assuming warmer temperatures, the reduced capacity in the cold can cause the reading to be unreliable. This is one of the reasons your phone may die while still showing 30%.

iPhone 6 Backlight Repairs

…The iPhone 6 that we had showed signs of life but no display. After replacing the screen with a new one, it still showed no signs of an image. When inspecting the screen in front of a flashlight, a faint image was visible. This confirmed that the phone was on and in fact worked, but had a blown back light. For this type of repair it would require micro soldering. After checking the filters on the motherboard we found them to have continuity and functioned within specifications. At this point in the back light circuit we still had a back light display BGA IC (ball grid array integrated circuit) as well as a coil and a diode. After checking the coil, which was also found to be within specifications, we then looked to the diode. Below is the picture of the diode under the cpu heatsink.

iPhone 6 Plus Flashing Gray Bars No Touch Repair

The problem that typically causes this is bad solder joints under one and/or both of the touch ics on the motherboard.
