The iPhone 5 series may still be fresh in the minds of wireless repair technicians. Each device had their own issues, but broken screens and charging issues are a few of the memorable iPhone 5 series repairs. There were the proximity sensor issues and the iPhone 5s blue screen of death. Then we had failing power buttons (volume controls and the vibrate switch too) that led a customer down the path of repair and into our cell phone repair shops
The iPhone 5c was a popular device that many phone repair technicians encountered. A customer would bring in their iPhone 5C and explain how the person they called was unable to hear them. Oh, by the way, this customer also was experiencing some charging problems. Some investigation showed us that there was a broken charge port flex cable. We were able to save the iPhone 5C and the day.
Apple has released another phone for the budget-conscious. This could be an option for new iPhone users or for existing iPhone users who want to upgrade from an iPhone 5 series device without giving up the smaller size. We are having nostalgic flashbacks, like much of the phone repair community, to simpler times with smaller devices. We anticipate many repairs to be similar to the smaller iPhone 5 series devices.
