At first glance, it doesn’t even look recognizable. This is an iPhone 6 that arrived recently at the Mission Repair lab in Lenexa Kansas, and it needed some TLC to say the least.
Sydney got right on it and cleanly removed the shattered screen assembly. She’s not one to mess around and she’s got the technical capability and tenacity to get this tedious job done fast. She’s a “robo-tech”. That’s a compliment!
To answer my own question, no we typically don’t see screens more damaged than this. This one is pretty bad, but fortunately all that was needed was an iPhone 6 screen to be installed and the customer was on their way.
It’s not unusual that I ask my technicians to take a few pictures of phones that are severely damaged…but it is unusual that an iPhone 6 would come into us in this bad of shape! Check out the “before pictures” below:
Of course, this iPhone 6 needed a lot of TLC…but once we replaced the back case and the glass, the rest of the phone was still working. This is a testament to the “ruggedness” of the rest of the phone even though we all know that the glass can break very easily. Obviously this phone was run over or caught in a car door or something. Normally they don’t look this bad. Once repaired, they typically tend to look this good!
So when people ask “can you fix my iPhone?!?”, just take a look at the pictures above and judge for yourself…if it’s not as bad of the first two pictures, there’s a good chance that Mission Repair will be able to help you out. I mean, there’s not much more someone can do to try to test our skills, right? Thanks to my technician Casey for handling this one.

They were very concerned about the reports of the iPhone 6 Plus “bending” when you insert it into your pocket; which I guess to me sounds a little bit like a feasible situation. Put your phone into your pocket, sit on it, and it bends.
Apparently the issue may be more than that…and since we’ve seen the inside of the iPhone 6 (which doesn’t have much “structural” support like the iPhone 5S does) the plausibility of “bending” is there. We haven’t seen a bent iPhone 6 in our lab yet. Cracked screens, yes…bent phones, no.
Check us on on KCTV 5 today at 6:15, and you’ll see me trying to talk my way out of the iPhone 6 Plus bending issue 😉 Let’s see how they put this one together!
I’ll be back shortly with more info on the iPhone 6 Plus bending problem in a blog later today.
