  • This is not allowed by Apple. The correct fix would be to buy a new Apple device. Showing the insides of an Apple device is theft of Intellectual Property and should be punishable by death.

  • I started repairing devices for myself since I'm 15 and I don't have a full time income it's very hard to pay apple to repair my devices, I first learned how to repair an iPhone 6 LCD then I moved onto repairing screens/battery for family and friends I'm now very known to my friends and people at my school and even my teacher wants me to perform repairs for his daughters iPhone and another teachers needs his iPhone X rear glass replaced. How do I develop my skills to your standards? I would wish to be able to remove logic boards, complete housing replacements. What can I do?
