When is a good time to get your iPhone fixed?

Hello there, I get this question from customers all the time:

“It’s cracked, but it still works. Should I get it done now or wait?”

IMG_2585

Take this iPod Touch in the picture above for example…this is the epitome of “cracked”. Most of these units that we receive are not this bad; but of course some are. Most of the time, the LCD even works under the cracked glass, and even the digitizer might work (the touch function) which makes it compelling to just used a damaged device for a while.

The problem is that the cracks can get worse. Just like the small chip that started when a rock hit your windshield and now has “grown” across the the length of your vision, the cracks in the glass on an iPhone can get worse over time. And when they get worse, the more potential for internal damage is likely to happen.

Just imagine if you spilled a drop of coffee on the iPod in the picture above. Let’s say near the home button at the top of the picture; it will seep into the unit and would most certainly begin to corrode and would most likely eventually cause more damage.

Remember, liquid + electronics = bad news.

If the glass is whole and not broken, that drop of coffee would just simply wipe off and no harm would be done. The cracks like in the unit above also pose a safety risk to the user. Glass is clearly falling out of the front panel and can easily end up in food, drinks, your eye, fingers, or on the floor for your baby niece to find the next time she crawls in that same area.

When should you have that cracked glass replaced? Do it now before it costs you more than you expected and/or causes you some physical harm.

Take care, Ryan

The Digitizer in an iPhone is the most important part of the screen. But what is it?

Let’s be honest. It is all a little confusing when talking about replacing the iPhone’s screen. At Mission Repair we replace thousands of iPhone screens every month which include replacing the glass, digitizer and LCD. Most people understand the functions of the glass and LCD, but what is a digitizer?

The digitizer is the electronic component that senses all touch functions. It is fused UNDER the glass and senses a human finger though the glass so that the unit can be controlled by your fingertip. The digitizer is very thin and transparent.

IMG_5963

Our Screen Repairs replace the glass, digitizer and LCD because these parts all come fused together as one assembly. You cannot replace the digitizer alone because it is part of the glass. So, if you have a shattered iPhone screen, you’re going to get a new digitizer along with the glass in order for your device to function correctly again.

When looking for an iPhone Screens you may see them marketed as: “iPhone glass, iPhone digitizer, iPhone touch screen, iPhone glass screen, iPhone screen, iPhone touch panel”, etc. These terms are all interchangeable and are all the same thing.

In need of an iPhone screen repair? Be sure to give us a call at 1-866-638-8402, visit our website or send us an email!
