I know that there are a ton of question about the “digitizer” on your iPhone, or any other touch-screen smartphone these days. We here at Mission Repair are experts and very familiar with iPhone digitizers, glass, and screens. We repair them by the thousands every month. Let’s see if we can demonstrate what the digitizer is here under a glass panel:
This is the digitizer on an iPhone!
The digitizer is fused UNDER the glass cover. It’s the electronic component that senses the touch of a human finger through the glass, and is designed to allow the unit to be controlled by a fingertip. This is the “input” of the device and it’s very thin and transparent.
The point is that you cannot replace the digitizer alone. Since it’s part of the glass, in the event of a touch failure it needs to be replaced with the glass and vice versa. So if you have a cracked iPhone glass, you’re going to get a new digitizer as well. If you have an iPhone that doesn’t respond to touch, you’ll also get a new glass. It’s just the way it’s designed.
You might see these assemblies marketed as:
iPhone touch screen
iPhone glass screen
iPhone touch panel
For all intents and purposes, these terms are all interchangeable and are all the same thing. Are you in need of one of these parts? Here’s a list of glass/digitizer repairs that we sell here at Mission Repair:
Remember, you might see these glass panels for sale cheap – be sure to inquire about the required digitizer that is fused to the glass from the factory – without it, the glass is useless. You cannot replace the glass or “remove” your good digitizer and reinstall it onto your iPhone without advanced equipment and lots of training. It just doesn’t work! These assemblies are built together and must stay together. I hope this information helps!
We are quickly approaching 2014 and there is absolutely no stopping it. It has been a great year for Mission Repair and we only have our customers to thank! We have some of the most loyal customers that no doubt help spread our brand! You are the reason that we are here and the reason we started this in the first place!
While I would love to take this post and stroll down memory lane with you, I can’t, we still have 6 days left in the year and I want to make some awesome new memories before we start reflecting on the year past!
What kind of memories? How about the best kind? The kind in which you save some money on your much needed repair service! At this time every year, Ryan runs around the building yelling “Q4 people, Q4”, trying to spark everyone to sell as much as they can. This is very understandable as we are in this business to sell a service and make money. However, it is never fun to over extend your welcome with a potential customer! Mission Repair never tries to over sell or or pressure you into using us… We prefer bribing you with huge savings!
It’s Almost Over!
Yeah, this might not make us very good sales people, but at least you don’t hate us, right? Ok, so back to that bribe! I am creating a special coupon code for 20% off your entire order that is only going to last until December 31st, 2013! This is my response to Ryan yelling Q4 all day! You want some sales, you got some sales :-)!
All you need to to to obtain this HUGE savings is email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond with the code! It is that easy! So come on, it’s time to finally have that iPhone repaired and start the New year off right!
That is what I like to call myself anyways! This weeks Tech Tid-Bit is going to be a little different than last weeks. I wanted to have a little bit of fun since I am all in the Halloween spirit here at Mission Repair. I always look forward to this time of year. Getting to see all the new creations people construct for their costumes just blows my mind sometimes! So to keep this weeks blog entry somewhat about Technology and somewhat about Halloween I went searching for some cool costume ideas. I stumbled upon one of the most ingenious ideas yet. Welcome the real life pulsing flesh wound!!
I found out that the man who created this idea was once a NASA employee. I actually downloaded the application that he created off the App Store and I am planning on using one of his awesome real life images! Now back to the technology part. You can simply use your iPhone, Android, or iPad. All you do is cut a whole in your shirt to display the image you want to use. He does offer some pretty cool accessories to go with this App as well. I may just have to check those out! If you plan on using your own accessories there is a chance for costume failure and that iPhone, iPad, or Android device may just slip out and hit the ground. Good thing you won’t have to worry about getting it fixed! Give us a call! We will get you taken care of right away!! Until next week techies! Happy Halloween!!
First ever edition of Jake’s Tech Tid-bit – look for this logo when the blog hits and you just might learn something new…or maybe not! Hello there fellow techies!
Captain Bayes reporting for duty!
My name is Jake Bayes. I am the Technician Supervisor/Production Manager here at Mission Repair! I am sure everyone of you has forever been wondering who the person is that fixes all your lovely devices that you send to us! As much as I like to think I am the only one that fixes your broken screen we do however have a very talented staff that I give all the credit to! It sure does make my job easier knowing I can insure your device (iPod, iPhone, iPad, well you get the idea) is back in your hands in a timely manner. But needless to say, I am the person that makes sure we have the correct part and the part is here awaiting for your device to be fixed and shipped.
I have been with Mission Repair for almost 4 years now. I started in the shipping area and have learned my way to where I am now. For the most part, my time here has been behind the scenes and I have finally convinced Ryan to let me join in on this blog fun. Like i said before I’m sure you all have just been foaming at the mouth for me to introduce myself. I have always had an infatuation with repairing things and ever since I was a young boy I have been tearing things apart and attempting to put them back together. It’s been a great hobby of mine in the past and the best part about it is now I get paid to do it!
This is the first part of my new adventure in to the blogging world. I will be creating a weekly “Tech Tid-Bit” for all the techies out there that want to come and see something I found interesting that a lot of people may not know about. If you ever have a technical question and need someone to call please don’t hesitate- give us a shout at 866-638-8402 or send our service staff an email. Our sales team is very knowledgable and if they can’t answer your question I would be glad to answer it!! Check back with me next week and I will have my very first “Tech Tid-Bit”.
So after an in-depth interview with journalist Ben Hartman, the article went up a few days ago. It’s a perfect fit for us since we have really established Mission Repair as the place to visit in Kansas City for iPhone and iPad repairs, even among the heavy competition that keeps popping up.
Well here’s to a great afternoon here in the KC area with fantastic weather today and I’ll be back shortly with a new Mission Repair special.
