One of the more common issues we have been seeing recently is the speaker on the iPhone stops working. There can be a number of causes for this but one that you may not be aware of is a phenomenon called micro-fractures which can occur in soldered connections within your iPhone.
Micro-fractures can be caused from the impact received if your iPhone has been dropped. Even if your phone seemed fine after being dropped it can take weeks or months to start showing signs of trouble. It's a bit like a cracked windscreen on your car. While it may start small, over time the crack gets bigger and bigger until the connection inside your phone starts failing altogether.
Due to the fact that these problems occur on the main PCB of the phone, or the components attached to it, it can often render your phone irreparable as it requires incredibly complex and expensive rework equipment to successfully repair the problem. Even Apple Australia do not repair this fault themselves, which is why they will replace an iPhone rather than repairing it for you.
The good news is that even if your phone is not repairable we can help you with a number of other options available to get your iPhone back to you and working again as quick as possible. For more details on iPhone or any other repairs we offer, please view our price list.
