Breaking any part of your iPhone, whether it be the back casing, screen, or even any of the ports (headphone or charging), can seem like a hopeless situation. Many people would instantly assume their phone is broken beyond repair, or even shell out hundreds and ship their phone off to Apple’s factories overseas, however this is not always the case.

With the popularity of iPhone’s, many hobbyists have taken time to de-assemble the device, and as such have learned how to repair basic hardware components. While having a supposedly random person repair your phone off the internet may seem sketchy, it isn’t as risky as some may think. You can find reputable Edmonton iphone repair specialists through popular sites such as Kijiji and Craigslist. The key however, is to do your due¬†diligence¬†and make sure whoever you do business with is professional, has recent references as to their mechanical ability, and a post-repair warranty. Most professional repair centres that have been around for several years and offer a lifetime guarantee on their repairs (or at the very least, 90 days). You’ll also want to either meet the iPhone repair specialist in either a well known public space like a coffee shop, or better yet their own location. Once the device has been repaired, be sure to get the guarantee in writing, and a specific receipt showing the services rendered and amount paid.

Lastly, but not least of importance it is critical to understand what parts of the broken iPhone can be replaced, and what parts cannot. Here is a quick rundown;

  • Front screen (glass overtop LCD, and the LCD itself)
  • Back casing (aftermarket, chrome/coloured cases can be swapped out easily)
  • Battery (easiest replacement ever, if your phone does not hold it’s charge, get this done to solve that).
  • Charging port (if your pins are bent or out of place, this can easily be replaced inexpensively)
