I bet you have so many phones and I bet it would not hurt you if you sent me one! Please sir! Please! I beg you, please! Thank you! Even a reply would be amazing!

    • @Karios Yes! That would be really awesome! Thanks for the tip! I will be careful when trying to repair small and cheap phones and will work my way up. Thanks for the chat, it was a true pleasure!

      CaynexxCaynexxTimme sedan
    • @Caynexx Glad to help, just be sure to start small and go slow because the ribbon cables can be very fragile! You can get cheaper repair kits to start out but once you 're more advanced it may be a good idea to invest into a proper tool kit

    • @Karios That is amazing! I am also very interested in repairing devices, but I thought I need lots of expensive hardware and different tools! Thanks for telling me that Its not as hard as I thought it would be!

      CaynexxCaynexx5 timmar sedan
    • @Caynexx It was easier than I thought it would be but I think it's easier to repair the 6s than other iPhones the proximity sensor didn't work at first but I repositioned it and it worked. I didn't use any heat the adhesive wasn't that strong because I think the device had a screen repair in the past and I had a cheap set of drivers and picks from when I fixed my iPhone 4s a long time ago.

  • Thanks Hugh I used this video when I did this repair the other night took me a few hours but I managed to completely replace everything with only breaking the silent switch on the side. In the end it was a win ended up with a completely restored iPhone 8

  • While I still prefer Apple’s iOS over Android, especially for its longevity in software updates, I really hate how they make it so difficult to repair their devices. Funny how if you look at their practices in how they build their devices, it completely debunks their marketing of the removal of power bricks as caring for the environment. If they really cared about sustaining the environment they would make their devices easy to repair!

  • I buy phones in bulk on eBay, sellers frequently mis list phones as the smallest storage available if it will not work, because if they advertise it as something it is not they stand the risk of getting banned.

  • Hi Hugh, the screen of my iphone X is cracked at the top, which overlaps a bit with the section that contains the Face ID components. Consequently (I think) the FID is not working. I am not bothered about FID, but I would like to stop the notifications. Is it possible to disable this function altogether?

  • Question for Hugh: I had my rear housing replaced by a repair shop. Now, my Apple Pay will not work nor will my phone charge using my wireless chargers. Please help!!!

    T GabrielT Gabriel2 månader sedan
    • Well I’m not hugh but chances are the repair shop you took it to used a cheap replacement housing without the wireless charging and NFC cut outs. Or they damaged the wireless charging coil. If you take it to another repair shop or use 3U tools to check whether or not it’s detected that should give you an answer.

  • honestly, the fact that it's so hard to repair apple devices unless you are an iphone surgeon like hugh, is the reason i don't support this company. it is highly damaging not only the consumer's finances with having to dish out hundreds of dollars for istores repairs, but also and most importantly - damages our environment, as electronic parts are not recyclable and end up in landfills. for shame, apple, for shame.

  • I really don't understand why Apple would stop or companies in general want to stop repair of old devices. One of the biggest damages to the enviroment is electronic parts and devices. Instead of just throwing it away and filling the landfills even more, it's better to be able to repair the divice and still use it. Save the enviroment! Apple is saying they care about enviroment, but that is simply not true if they wont allow people to repair and minimize thrown garbage

  • I actually got my 64GB model IPhone 8 in December of 2018 for $950 AUD at JB-HIFI with a $50 AUD acrylic case so the only way that device would be more expensive is if it was a higher storage capacity model or if JB-HIFI had the phones on sale at the time which is possible as it was likely purchased on Boxing Day as a Christmas gift! :)
