iPhones have been popular ever since the first one hit the market way back in 2007. iPhones are not those smartphones which you can buy anytime as they are the costly piece of equipment even though they are totally worth their price. Many people prefer to get their iPhones repaired in case of damage or faults to avoid buying a new one.
iPhone repair kits are easily available online. Depending on the parts that require repair, anyone can order the corresponding repair kit and try to do it at home. It is an economical and fun alternative as compared to going to a service center. The only caution here is to make sure to identify your phone correctly when you order the repair kit online.
Here are a few of the iPhone replacement parts that are easily available online:
LCD Screen: One of the most easily damaged parts of a phone is its screen. With the rise in touchscreen phones that have one face of the phone completely taken over by the screen, there are more chances of getting screen damage. Present iPhones are coming with the revolutionary Gorilla glass that is highly resistant and less prone to damage. On impact, it crumbles rather than splintering making it safer than regular glass. An LCD screen replacement kit will help you complete the job at home.
Replacement Battery: the iPhone comes with a high-quality battery which rarely gives faults. If you are having problems with the battery of your new or old iPhone, you can get a replacement battery. The kits include the necessary tools in addition to the battery adhesive strips. In case, the kit does not have it, you can also order them separately.
Camera and Sensor cable: The phone can fall at weird angles making only parts of it impacted; in some cases, the rear or front camera may be smashed. Front camera replacements usually come with a secondary microphone, ambient light and proximity sensors. Rear cameras can also be fixed using a high-quality replacement kit. This is a tricky task, you may need a magnifier to complete this job in addition to other tools required to open the screws, fix the camera and sensors, etc.
SIM Card Tray Replacement: If the SIM card is not inserted properly or the tray is handled roughly, the SIM card tray may get damaged. A SIM card tray replacement is very easy to find; it is also pretty easy to install at home. If you have lost your SIM card, try ‘SIM card open eject pin.’
Home Button: The ‘Home Button’ on your iPhone is frequently used and also serves many purposes. It is designed in a way that it sits lower than the rest of the phone and stays protected in case of a fall. However, if for any reason it gets damaged, it can be replaced using the home button replacement kit. A couple of things to check while ordering a home button replacement is that the button face that must come with a flex cable and a metal ring, color-matching your phone.
Faulty replacements can get frustrating leading to the wastage of time and resources. Make sure to cover yourself from monetary loss by purchasing the replacement kits with at least one-year warranty. Some of the tools required to disassemble and assemble an iPhone are like a spudger, pentalobe 5-point screwdriver, Philips #000 screwdriver, ESD safe tweezers, plastic opening tool and small suction cup. Be sure to order these separately in case they are not included in the kit.
