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!
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.
