Right to Repair your iPhone Screen in Australia

We all Deserve the right to repair our iPhone or Mac Book outside of Apple

Since the introduction of the iPhone 8, 8 plus, and X, there has been the whole ambient light sensor fiasco. If you replaced the screen on any of these phones, the sensor that controls the auto-brightness would completely stop working, whether it was on an actual Apple screen or not. Phone technicians have since figured out a couple work-around, but just like error 53, it’s still up in the air whether this was truly a design flaw by Apple or something more nefarious.

Premium iPhone Screen Replacements with Screen Fixed Australia

Based on what we’ve seen from the newest models of Apple’s laptops and computers, Apple is already starting to make their computers more difficult to repair. They’ve started soldering in parts that in no way need to be. Beginning all the way back with the 2010 Mac book Air, the memory, or RAM, has been soldered to the main board, making it essentially impossible to upgrade or repair. In 2016, they started to solder the HARD DRIVES to the main boards in the Mac book Pro. You would never be able to upgrade your hard drive space ever again. The soldering work Apple is putting into these components is completely unnecessary. The only reasoning I can think of is to make repairs and upgrades next to impossible.

You Own Your iPhone,  Choose Where You Repair it!

I fear that if the right to repair bills are passed, then this pattern of making repair extremely difficult will increase exponentially. If they can’t force us to stop doing repairs legally, they will do it physically. We may be able to repair other smartphones initially, but other companies have a pattern of letting Apple test the waters with controversial ideas and then copying them later. Apple got rid of the headphone jack and we ALL complained… but we still bought the iPhone 7, and now most modern smartphones have dropped the headphone jack as well. The iPhone X introduced the infamous “notch” at the top of the screen, and while less controversial, immediately began to be copied. If Apple makes it impossible for us to physically repair their products, then the other smartphone companies will follow suit.

Apple – Right to Repair Legislation Australia

That’s why I feel the best course of action is to just let things stay as they are. I know most other technicians will disagree with me, and that’s completely understandable. We 100% should be able to legally repair whatever we want. But right now, business is good, and changing anything at this point could shake things up unpredictably. I have a strong feeling that these bills will be passed, and hopefully I am completely wrong about how Apple will react. If I’m not, hopefully how Apple makes their devices impossible to repair will hit the public eye in the same way the right to repair bills have today, and we can once more battle Apple alongside each other.

iPad is one of the most popular lines of tablet computers in the world. This is not a surprise because this device has incredible performance. It’s relatively fast, it looks good and it comes with tons of features. Of course,all these great things make the iPad a little bit expensive, but it’s definitely worth the investment.

When people are using an iPad they should be careful because these devices can easily get damaged when operated recklessly. Yet, there are situations when people, no matter how careful they are, witness accidents related to their device. For instance, many people have dropped their iPads in water. Many iPad owners think that this is the end of their tablet, but the truth is that there are a few things that they can do to protect the device from serious damage. We will use this article to explain what people should do in case they drop their iPad in water. Hint: We’re a repair company and believe that all it devices like iPad Pro’s can be repaired.

Keep the iPad Pro turned off

For starters, it is crucial to remember that the iPad must stay turned off when it is dropped in water. Most people believe that wiping the device with some cloth or paper is enough and that the next step is to turn on the iPad and see whether it works or not. But, the fact is that an activity like this can do more harm than good. Of course, you should use a cloth to wipe the iPad. Use the cloth to wipe literally every element of this tablet. But, once you are finished, you should not turn it on. It takes a few days for the iPad to dry off at room temperature. Don’t be impatient because your impatience can lead to major damage.

Use silica gel

Waiting for the iPad to dry can be a difficult task for many people. That’s why they are tempted to use a blow dryer to speed up the process. However, even though the iPad is a very durable and sturdy device, using a blow dryer can damage the solder which is obviously not a good thing. Obviously, the blow dryer will accelerate the evaporation, but the negative consequences outweigh the positive effects. Using a blow dryer can damage other internal parts of the device. If you want to speed up this process, you can use silica gel. You can find these packages at an electronics store. They are effective because silica absorbs moisture naturally. Just place the iPad and the silica gel in a zipper bag.

Try Rice but don’t count on it!

This might sound odd, but the truth is that even rice can help you fix your iPad. There are no special requirements for this step. Just put some rice in a bowl and place the iPad on top of it. Similar to silica gel, rice has an ability to absorb moisture and water.iPhone Rice Solution
