Hello there my friends,
Summer is ending soon!
It is almost time to go back to school and that can only mean one thing. Summer break is ending soon! Summer flew by and we are wrapping it up with a list of great specials. So, while it is sad to see Summer go, Mission Repair is here to cheer you up with great prices for iPod, smartphone, tablet or laptop repairs!
The iPhone 6 Plus Repairs have been very popular this month already, I just wanted to make sure that you knew about them!
Have a great August and be sure to check out all of our specials listed below.
Take care, Ryan
I haven’t blogged about the iPhone 6 Plus cracked screens yet, so I grabbed a customer unit to show exactly what can happen when these beauties are dropped. Just as suspected…they crack! You can’t really stop physics, so it’s a good idea to take extra care when handling a large device like the iPhone 6 Plus.
I feel terrible for this customer…it’s truly a hassle for the customer to have to perform a repair like this on a phone that is just so new…and so expensive. Yes, Mission Repair is here for customers like this; however we pride ourselves on keeping units active and working for a LONG time (when I was in the tech room earlier today I saw an original iPhone screen being repaired!) but we’re also here for the newest, latest and greatest when we can be of service.
Once my techs are completed with this iPhone 6 Plus screen repair, I’ll post a follow up blog to show you the difference. You can probably imagine that it’ll look like a new phone…and it will.
Until then, I’ll be back shortly.
Take care, Ryan
P.S. For those of you that are interested: I checked this customer’s iPhone 6 Plus to see if it was bent…and it’s NOT!
Hello blog readers-
There’s been a lot of press about the iPhone 6 Plus and the fact that it seems to be “bending” when left in your pocket for a while. Wait, what? BENDING? This seems improbable!
Maybe Apple should make a “bendy-straw-accordion” version of the iPhone 6 Plus. Or you might need to have it repaired. You can wrap it around your handlebars if you want to 😉
Bending an iPhone is not that improbable. We here at Mission Repair have seen every type of iPhone disaster imaginable. Bent phones, while rare, do happen. The iPhone 5 and 5S are perfect examples of a rugged phone. They have squared off edges with additional metal strengtheners along each edge. The iPhone 6 Plus has rounded edges and is made of aluminum and does not have the same strengtheners as it’s predecessor.
So then there’s a “heat” theory. An iPhone 6 Plus slips into your pocket, and then starts to heat up. This gets the metal hot and therefore logically will make it more pliable. There are a few stories on forums and blogs that are popping up with customer horror stories…but let’s not all panic yet. There’s a lot to be discovered about the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus that only time will tell.
Want some advice? Don’t put the iPhone 6 Plus into your back pocket and sit on it. Actually, don’t do this with any phone. These are small hand-held electronic devices, but they don’t have flexibility or the design to remain pocket bound. That’s your wallet’s job.
Let us know if you have any questions or if you’ve found that your iPhone 6 Plus is bent and you’re not sure why; we’d love to investigate!
Have a great day, Ryan
