Do authorized repair places fix anything? Or just forward mail? Let’s find out. Do keep in mind these are all likely good people who want to help their customers, but whose hands are tied. Highlights:
1:50 – iPhone 6 headphone jack is SOLDERED to the logic board & not fixable without spending $300 to replace board. News to me, I thought it was on a flex cable.. ?
2:21 – Apple won’t make available, a charging port or a headphone jack, to an Apple Authorized Repair Center. This means that if your headphone jack stops working, even at an Apple Authorized repair center, their own technicians are not allowed to replace your broken headphone jack. To clarify: this part is under ten dollars http://amzn.to/2lIoEb5 and can be installed with no soldering required: http://bit.ly/1YVPQft
5:25 – The truth(IN MY OPINION) from an honest, unauthorized repair shop(the device shop on mercer st in Manhattan) that the headphone jack is NOT soldered onto the board, and can be fixed by replacing a flex cable at a cost of $50 on the spot.
5:49 – THIS IS THE TRUTH(IN MY OPINION INCASE AN ATTORNEY IS READING THIS)
21:20 – Apple advises against changing touch ICs because of possibility you will ruin the motherboard that has your data on it.
22:09 – Apple tech admits that *every* Apple solution will toss your old motherboard, and with it, your data. So it is imporrtant to fix it through an AASP so they don’t ruin your old board, but the AASP throws away your old board. This begs the question: what is the upside of not *trying* touch IC replacement first?
22:40 – AASP finally suggests trying company that may charge $1500 for a touch IC replacement if data is necessary. AASP concedes that if data is required, you must go to a non-Apple authorized facility.
28:50 – Touch IC not fixable through Apple Authorized provider without losing data for any amount of money. Why should independent repair be kept out of the loop on schematics & parts when Authorized service providers do not offer data recovery at ANY price?
32:00 – Authorized service center listed on apple.com as servicing iPhones fixes iPhone 6 screen for $149 and has to mail phone out with *1 week* turnaround time for screen repair on an iPhone 6. If phone has a dent in the corner, they will replace the entire phone for $329.
