When an iPhone comes home from the showroom, it
When the iPhone was still new in the market, a damage of the basic level like a cracked screen meant immediate morgue for the mobile. Today, it is a common problem, which can be dealt easily. Thus, no more guilt for all the butter fingered iPhone users out there. The damaged mobile is just a repair away to become that brand new iPhone that you bought not so long ago. First step is to check whether the screen is working. If it is, it means that the LCD (the liquid crystal display) is still working which means good news. The recent models in the iPhone have two screens. The first is the exterior one, the screen that we touch. The second is the LCD screen built inside the first layer, which operates the screen images.
When the screen is cracked and the iPhone's display is still working, that means the LCD is not damaged. In this case, it needs an iPhone glass replacement. However, if the display cannot be switched on or if it does not work, that indicates both ruptured exterior and interior screens. So, both the glass screen and the LCD has to be replaced in order get the iPhone working again. While the glass screen replacement is can be obtained easily enough at any iPhone repair store, the LCD replacement needs a bit of attention.
If you are a competent, mobile savvy, you can replace the glass screen yourself. All you need to do is get to a store that provides iPhone replacement parts and buys an exterior glass screen (otherwise called the iPhone glass) for that particular model. Those who need professional assistance for the iPhone glass replacement can enquire with the other stores to check if the repair is priced at a reasonable level.
For people who can handle the glass screen replacement all by themselves and those who might need professional assistance must keep in mind that broken glass is no reason to throw an iPhone away. The cost incurred in an iPhone glass replacement job is minimal compared to a new iPhone. And if the crushed, dropped, dashed iPhone is still working after a cracked screen, it means the LCD has survived. The increased market share of the iPhone has spawned off small scale industries that altogether are dependent on the repairs and replacement of the iPhone. Hence, even if the damage is intense, there is no reason to let go of the old iPhone; unless you want to upgrade.
