Iphone 6 still a costly repair – Get Apple Care ASAP!

Iphone 6 still a costly repair – Get Apple Care ASAP!

If you are one of the lucky people who got an Iphone 6 for Christmas -make sure to get a protective case!!

 Iphone 6 repairs are very costly at this time. Our cost for screen and glass on an Iphone 6 is around $150. Iphone 6+ is over $225.  Adding in labor for a repair puts this service out of reach for most people.

I highly recommend that you purchase the Apple Care+ service contract. It is a one time fee of $99. This extends the warranty to 2 years and covers 2 accidental damage incidents. The deductible for those incidents is $79.

Iphone 6 parts have come down in the last few days but I expect them to remain high for several more months.

Here are some of my favorite Cell Phone case suppliers (I have some of these in stock):

Apple offering iPhone 5 battery replacement for eligible devices

Recently Apple has admitted to a fault in the iPhone 5 (excluding 5S and 5C) battery. Eligible iPhone 5 holders may take their device to an Apple retailer and receive a replacement battery for free. Of course the user will need to schedule an appointment with them; the replacement batteries seem to operate much more effectively than the faulty ones originally in their place.

Here is a link to the eligibility check on Apple’s website.

With this being said, battery life has always been a top complaint for iOS users. Will the upcoming iPhone 6 have a much desired improved battery?

Apple has determined that a very small percentage of iPhone 5 devices may suddenly experience shorter battery life or need to be charged more frequently. The affected iPhone 5 devices were sold between September 2012 and January 2013 and fall within a limited serial number range.”

iPhone 6 pre-release thoughts

iPhone 6 pre-release thoughts

Apple has announced an event to be held September 10th. They are likely to reveal the new iPhone 6 and possibly other Mac products. Rumor is there will be 2 different iPhone 6 sizes, both being larger than the previous iPhone 5/iPhone 5S. Although I question the motive behind the two different sizes; it seems most other smartphone companies have at least 1 larger size available for consumers such as the Galaxy/Note.

The new iPhone screen is said to be made of sapphire – the same material the 5S uses for its new home button. The leaked screens have withstood intense flexibility tests and minor scratch tests. That being said, it can be concluded that it is not pure sapphire but a glass/sapphire composite, unlike the 5S home button which is pure sapphire.

Here is a short video of a scratch test conducted on a rumored iPhone 6 screen.

Also the new iPhone is rumored to only output a 960p resolution. Although Apple is not up to a 1080p display yet like its main competitor the Samsung Galaxy, the pixel density is still a very high 356ppi.

 

Final thoughts: With a new screen technology, iPhone 6 should have a very durable, drop resistant screen on the market. That being said, it may be much more expensive the conduct replacements on the new iDevice.
