Apple iPhone 6: Less or More Vulnerable to Shattered Screens

June 26th, 2015

iphone 6 screen replacementWhen the iPhone 6 first came out, many experts said that it was one of the most durable phones that Apple has released. SquareTrade even made a video testing how unlikely it is for the screen to shatter. This was like a dream come true for many iPhone users, but that dream soon turned into a nightmare for some people.

iPhone repair shops such as iResQ have been noticing that there have been a lot of iPhone 6s coming in for screen repair. Customers often tell the tale of carrying something in one hand with the iPhone in the other and in all of the weight, the phone slips out of their hands.

Now, some people do report that it wasn’t the first time they have dropped their phone. Actually, they admit to have dropped it several times. The reason the screen didn’t shatter before is because it didn’t land on its face, but rather on the side. The nicks and scratches on the sides of the phone prove that to be true.

The problem is that when the iPhone 6 is dropped on its face, there’s a slim chance it will not end up with the spider web of horror. The iPhone 6’s screen is made of glass and glass breaks. It can be durable on the sides all it wants, but if it falls from high enough and on the right side, the face will shatter.

Luckily, it isn’t too difficult to get it back to looking new again. You can just send it into iResQ for an iPhone 6 screen replacement. Our certified technicians will remove the shattered screen on your phone, and then install a brand new one in its place. The brand new one will be at the same level of quality as the one that was initially installed in your phone. The result is an iPhone 6 that looks new again. Wouldn’t that be so nice?

Call us or use our easy online ordering system to get your shattered iPhone 6 repaired today.

Hearing Aid Volume Control with iPhone: Will It Happen and Is It Worth the Expense?

June 23rd, 2015

iphone featuresRecently, Apple received the Helen Keller Achievement Award. It’s VoiceOver feature has earned acclaim worldwide for helping people with vision impairments. Now, Apple may be taking another step further.

Apple just received a patent for new hearing aid technology. This would help people hard of hearing be able to have their hearing aid’s volume automatically adjusted. For example, the iPhone will be able to detect that there is a hearing aid close by, and then it will adjust the volume to ensure that the person is able to hear the phone ringing or alerts for notifications. As it is now, people need to adjust the volume themselves by fumbling with the buttons on the hearing aid. This isn’t always easy, and some believe people can forget to adjust the volume which leads to missed calls and notifications.

There’s no guarantee that this new technology will be introduced in future iPhones, but there is a possibility since the patent was awarded. Apple continues to lead the market with features that help people with disabilities. It’s part of their good human service efforts as well as a way to gain attention.

Apple is also working hard on new features that won’t be able to be added to older phones. As people start to keep their phones for years by just getting them repaired, it’s critical the company comes up with features that can only be gained from the purchase of a new phone.

What many people must consider is if it is worth the cost of a new phone. People for years have adjusted their hearing aids. They seldom forget to do it because it’s become a habit. This may mean that the implementation of it will unlikely result in a huge push forward for Apple. It’s more about their brand and how they can improve their reputation with this feature.

Cracked Camera Decreasing Photo Quality on Smartphone

June 19th, 2015

camera crackedMost of us have replaced our cameras with our smartphone’s camera. It’s just convenient to whip out our phones. They are with us anyway, right?

The problem is that the smartphone’s camera is just as durable as the screen. When you drop the phone, the camera lens can crack. Sometimes, you’ll be able to see it, and other times, you may not. The crack can be so slight that you would need a microscope.

What the Cracked Camera Does to Photo Quality

It’s obvious that the crack will interfere with the photo. You’re taking a picture with a big crack in the middle of it. However, that’s not always what happens. Sometimes, you won’t see the crack in the photo. Instead, the effects will not seem as though it is related to the damage.

When you have a crack, moisture can seep into it. That moisture gets stuck in there. Since the crack is so small, air can’t get to it to make it dry out. Guess what? You end up with a haze on your photos. Not good.

You may think it’s just your photo taking skills, but it’s really due to the damage to your camera. Fortunately, you can solve that problem with a camera replacement for your smartphone.

With a camera replacement, our certified technicians will remove the damaged one in your phone. They will then install a brand new one in its place. The new one won’t have the crack and will be just as good as the one that the phone came with, so you’ll have your phone back to its original condition.

So the next time you take a picture and you look at your phone and think, “Ugh…why is it so blurry or hazy.” That’s probably it. Give iResQ a try to have it repaired. You may just end up with much better selfies and photos to share with all of your loved ones online.

Can Your Employer Prohibit Cell Phones from Work?

June 9th, 2015

camera removalIf you’ve recently been offered a new job, you may have been told you cannot bring your cell phone to work. That’s probably a surprise to you because there aren’t too many places you can’t take your phone these days. It may even make you wonder if that’s even possible. Can your employer really prohibit bringing cell phones to work?

Yes. It is legal to make this part of the guidelines of employment. The employer may have already told you, but the reason is usually the camera. Due to security and confidentiality, employees cannot bring their cell phone into some places of employment. It’s a precautionary measure. When there are no camera allowed, there’s no question whether someone is taking pictures of something they should not be.

While many employers will not allow cell phones under any circumstances, some are willing to let employees bring them to work IF they have the cameras removed. People often don’t have a problem doing this because they feel that having a phone without a camera is better than not having one at all.

Camera Removal Services

At iResQ, we help people who can’t bring their cell phones to work because they have a camera. Our certified technicians know how to remove cameras from iPhones and smartphones with our camera removal services. They simply open the phone, remove the camera, and then return the phone and camera to you. We can even include a letter that states the camera has been removed. Most employers don’t need it because they will be able to see that it has been taken out, but if you need that confirmation, that’s no problem.

See our iPhone and smartphone repair pages for more information about camera removal.
