Apple Gadgets – What’s Repairable And What’s Beyond It?May 5, 2020
iPhone, no matter which one, is a sturdy device. Not only is its firmware reliable, its firmware is right besides it in terms of dependence and reliability. In fact, I still remember my friend and manager’s iPhone 5 getting crushed under a heavy vehicle and still being operable even though the screen was a goner.
Well, iPhone is a reliable piece of equipment but there are instances where one understands it needs an iPhone repair, and that this repair is out of the owner’s hands.
So, here is a little guide on what can be repaired and what just can’t be.
2G phones are old. So, being honest I will just say that spending so much on a phone that doesn’t even cost as much as the repair charges is like betting money on limping horse. The parts are hard to get and hence, rare and expensive. So, how about finally embracing the 4G era?
iPhone 3G and 3GS:
Relatively a better option, 3G and 4G may also be going out of date, but their parts are still easy to find. 4G phones are still viable but if it’s asking you for a repair every two months, it’s time to say goodbye to your ol’ faithful phone.
iPhone 4 and 4S:
iPhone repairing for generation 4 and 4S are the least of fusses. These technologies are still in the reach of users and since people got to know of the potential of our favorite SIRI around the time of iPhone 4 and 4S, customers have never looked back. This is where iPhone repair offers more value for money. If you have one of these, always prioritize the option of repair over that of buying a new phone.
iPod gen 1 and 2 are already outdated. I’d even put 3 in the antiques category. But 4 however, is worth repairing. What may matter more than the cost of repair, the content within that you have purchased. This absolutely validates repairing of iPod generation 4.
Similarly, iPad 1 and maybe even 2 are outdated and though they may not be a hopeless case, their hardware’s obsolescence should be a reason enough to finally let them rest in peace. However, iPad Air and Air 2 may still have a year or a couple in them. So yes, if you’ve got a newer iPad, know that it can still be saved.
