It’s still a fact to this day that as the amount of technology in phones increases, so does the cost of an iPhone repair. Our phones go everywhere with us, even prompting Samsung to tag their new phone as a Life Companion and not simply a phone (or smartphone). They get dropped, crushed, left to rumble around in the bottom of our bags, and usually suffer from a few splashes of liquid from a spilt glass nearby. It’s a fact that by the time most people need an iPhone repair, there has already been an number of close calls, and most smashed and broken front glass screens are normally needing a repair after several previous near misses.
Most of the damage we see is from dropped items and we do recommend people to consider buying an inexpensive casing that’s available from most online accessory retailers. The ideal ones offer a rubber, and slight soft feel to absorb as much of the impact as possible. The thinner kind are generally made of a harder plastic, and while will absorb a certain amount of damage, not to the extent a slightly larger, softer one will.
Liquid damage can bring all kinds of problems with it. Depending on the extent sometimes a simple dock, speaker, or front glass replacement can fix the problems. However, being the nature of liquid damage, the phone may degrade further even after repairs due to problems on the mainboard. Generally it is best to get an assessment to the level of damage and make a consideration if worth repairing. Protection from this type of problem is quite simply; keep your phone away from all liquid sources. So the kitchen bench, next to the swimming pool, on the bathroom recess are all inviting problems and as such best to avoid completely. Also keep drinks away to avoid the common ‘accidentally spilling your glass while reaching for something else’ scenario.
Above all it is always best to ensure you have a backup of your iPhone. Whether there is damage caused by yourself, someone else, or just general wear and tear and electrical failure that renders the phone useless, it is best to keep a back up on at least two computers (use iTunes and backup) and also consider using iCLoud for your backup. You may need to pay a slight yearly fee to increase your iCloud storage though this will enable you to keep an up to date backup of your phone, as well as a slightly older archive version on other computers just in case the iCloud backup is corrupted.
