Apple announced their iPhone 6 Plus touch ic repair program. Now here is what Apple is writing:
“Apple has determined that some iPhone 6 Plus devices may exhibit display flickering or Multi-Touch issues after being dropped multiple times on a hard surface and then incurring further stress on the device.”
Yes, it’s your fault that you have this issue. WRONG.
This is a known issue related to bad manufacturing decisions that apple took. iPhone 6 Plus is just to thin and made out of soft aluminum causing it to bend. On top of that, part of logic board where Touch IC’s are located is flexible due to lack of metal cover. In that location apple decided to put a sticker.
It’s not the first time apple is blaming it’s users for issues with their products. Remember iPhone 4 antenna gate? “Your are holding it wrong”. Give me a break.
Now, with this program. You can go to apple store with your touch ic issue and get a replacement iPhone for $149. If it qualifies! If you have cracked screen, bend, signs of abuse, you may be out of luck.
Worst part is you are getting replacement iPhone 6 Plus that most likely is the exact same design. I don’t believe that apple would actually change anything in their refurbished phones at this point. Do you know where from apple gets logic boards for refurbished units?
Let’s say someone dropped their phone and cracked the screen. This is happening every day. This person goes to apple store to get it fixed. Genius bar refuses to replace the screen because the frame is bend or damaged from dropping the phone. Customer get another unit and his phone goes to refurbishing center. Logic board is being trasfered to new body and tested. Now that refurbished unit land’s on your hands for $149! While apple just said the issue exhibits after being dropped multiple times.
That means you WILL encounter the same issue, it’s just matter of time.
I had multiple emails from customers asking if I provide lasting repair. Some people were on their 3rd iPhone within weeks. I can proudly say yes!
After the touch ic repair I install my custom laser cut steel shield. This stiffens the logic board, preventing it from flexing and damaging the joints under the new chips. Another benefit is you keep your data. Sometimes You are unable to back up your phone because of passcode and no touch functionality. I’m actually fixing Your logic board!
So if you have Touch IC issues, I do not recommend going to apple. Go with iFixLogicBoards or other reputable microsoldering company that installs metal proof shields.
