Smart devices such as smart phones and mobile devices like tablets have become a part of everyday life. However, with an increased frequency of use come an increased risk of damage and the need for repairs. There are many types of common repairs for items like iPhones and iPads, including screen repairs, hard drive repairs, and more. If your iPhone has broken in any way, consider the following guide to help you decide what you need to do next.
Step 1: Find out what needs repairing
What is the extent of the damage to your iPhone? Do you have a cracked iPhone screen, or are you having problems with a sluggish iPhone or iPad, or is the damage serious enough to warrant a total rebuild iPhone or iPad?
Step 2: Decide if you want to attempt your own repair or send it out
Depending on the seriousness of the damage, you may be able to do a small repair yourself after buying replacement parts and the necessary tools; or you’ll need to send in your iPhone to be repaired by a professional third party. It is technically less expensive to buy the tools and parts yourself, but if you are experienced in iPhone repair—particularly when it comes to replacing screens and repairing internal damage—you should spend a little bit more to send it out.
Step 3: Find the right shop for replacement parts and/or repairs
Once you’ve made your decision, it’s time to find the best shop to buy replacement parts or to send for repairs. Some stores that offer replacement parts also offer repairs, but this will depend on the business. The best way to find the best stores is to look for online reviews of their quality, and ask around to find out if anyone has had experiences with them. The best stores will have experience in repairing iPhones and other smart devices, and they will have a record of providing quality service for their customers.
Step 4: Get it repaired—and enjoy your fixed phone!
If you repair your phone yourself, you’ll have to wait for the parts to arrive before you can repair and enjoy your fixed phone. If you decide to send your phone in, you simply send it through the mail and patiently wait for your repaired iPhone to be finished and sent back. All that’s left to do after that is enjoy your fixed phone!
