  • A question: I have a 78-key "Apple Keyboard Dock A1359" (very cheap and plentiful on eBay) with a 30-pin pre-Lightning plug and it works fine on an old iPad A1416 with iOS 9.3.5. But if I connect it to even my oldest Lightning device (a iPod A1421 with the same iOS 9.3.5) with a 30pin/Lightning adaptor it charges the battery but the keyboard does nothing. I'm sure it worked with this configuration when I first bought it a few years ago. Is this an incompatibility of Lightning interfaces in general or do I need to get a better adaptor?

  • Hi Hugh, love your work. I have been wathcing you for quite a long time and I have decided to start repair my devices. I want to buy some tools from iFixit and I want to use you code for the discount but I cant is that because I live in Romania? Is it your code only applies in Australia? Keep up the good work👍🏽!

  • Jeff, Pls reply. I have an unpleasant situation with data on my Iphone. In short, my little son typed wrong password for my device. As a result, this caused my device to lock. Soon after I contacted Apple office and was advised to update the firmware of this device, after which my phone requested the password, I entered it, it accepted. Phone started to recover, but close to the end of that process it reported a data recovery failure and again requested a password for the next attempt, and so all these attempts passed, and then the device was locked again! This device wasn't backed up in icloud, so I bought a new phone so that I recover data with iTunes and not to lose data. iTunes gave me an error that the backup was corrupted and data recovery was impossible. That phone has all my son's photos and videos, from his birth to the present time! Can I somehow recover data!? Please help me or advice what to do.

  • Honestly I don’t know where the touch ic is at, most likely underneath of the board. So my best bet is to heat the whole thing just the main board. I think a oven is the way to go. Maybe go outside with gloves on the pavement and try to heat one side up evenly as possible like 20 to 30 seconds at the heat gun at 320 to maybe 400 degrees Fahrenheit. So do one side for 30 seconds then the other, and try to test it after it cools down to room temperature. Do it OUTSIDE if you do this and on the concrete or something that is not around dry grass. Or around flammable items. I don’t want to be one that is on the news for suggesting this. DO AT OWN RISK.

  • Hugh - Your videos are extremely well done and greatly appreciated. Is it possible to transplant a motherboard from one iPhone 8 to another iPhone 8? Would it show the stored contacts, calendar, etc? Also, I have an iPhone 8 that is only showing a logo screen when the charger is plugged in even though I just installed a new battery. What does that mean? Many thanks!

  • *it is not mystery what happened to them - I've worked for smartphone insurance company - people just break back glass or something else (nothing major) they go to Apple shop ask for repair price and they find out it is CRAZY HIGH so...... they claim insurance - and because it does NOT matter in what condition you provide it to insurance company - you get an ideas - and TRUST ME - people have very interesting ideas how to do this - like............ BLEND smartphone in blender - you ask why?! Because you blend ie. $5 android smartphone and you claim it was....... iPhone 12 Pro Max 512GB......... long story*

  • By the way, I have 3 laptops and only 2 of them don't turn on while 1 of them turns on but has a WiFi issue and instead of just throwing these laptops away or taking them to the E-Waste Bin or even the recycling center, I plan on making them work and doing something useful and creative with them since I just want to keep them around for a long time and I just hate getting rid of these old laptops because these old laptops have so much sentimental value's to me

  • My iPhone 6 got run over by a bus, I took it apart and it works fine, it's just the screen and housing that need replacing. Apple might be a bad company in terms of customer service and repair, but their products are durable.
