79% of Americans Wait a Week to Get Their iPhones Repaired

May 19th, 2016

hqdefaultWhen someone drops an iPhone, it’s devastating. It can make a grown man cry. The shattered glass can greatly diminish a person’s pride over being an iPhone user. Despite these feelings after suffering a cracked screen, most Americans wait at least a week before getting their iPhone repaired. This baffled us since it’s so easy to get one repaired when using us.

When People Decide to Repair a Shattered Screen on an iPhone

People decide to repair a shattered screen when they have trouble using the device.

  • 20% of people can’t take pictures
  • 29% of them can’t use some of the letters
  • 27% can’t use apps
  • 20% can’t unlock their phone

We believe that people wait until the last possible minute to have their iPhone repaired, which is why they don’t until one of the above happens.

The problem is that iPhone users don’t understand that the longer they wait, the more damage their iPhone could incur. The shattered glass makes the iPhone vulnerable. Water can easily seep into the phone this way, which could cause internal damage to the hardware. If anything probes the cracked screen, it can go deep enough to hit the internal hardware and damage it.

Besides further damage to the device, there could be skin damage. When glass is shattered or just cracked, it can slice a finger easily, especially if you’re dragging it across it. The more you use it, the more likely you could end up with a scratch. If you’re rolling your eyes over the possibility of a scratch, it’s never fun to be in public bleeding and needing to find a restroom to take care of it.

Don’t wait to get your iPhone screen repaired. Do it as soon as possible, so you can get back to doing everything you love to do with your phone.

Android Battery Problems after a Year

May 17th, 2016

Android Battery ProblemsIf it’s been about a year after you bought your Android device, you may have noticed the battery doesn’t last nearly as long as it used to. You may need to plug it in a couple times a day, so you can use it. As frustrating as this is, we have something to share with you – Android battery problems are common.

Android Battery Problems

Batteries aren’t made to last a long time. After charging, decharging, and recharging hundreds of times, the battery begins to lose power. This means that when you charge it to 100%, it’s not really as full as it was when you first started using it. That’s why it’s dying so much sooner.

While you can simply plug it in all of the time to get the device to continue to work, it’s not desirable. After all, mobile devices should be mobile. You want to be able to take it with you wherever you go and not have to worry about plugging it in every hour or so.

The only solution for when an Android battery starts to decharge too quickly is to replace it. With a brand new battery, you will have the charging capacity as you did when you first phone your phone. You may be able to go through the whole day without having to charge your device. Now, that would be a relief, wouldn’t it?

Depending on the device you own, replacing the battery can be difficult. Some of the Samsung Galaxy smartphones have  a removable back cover, which means all you have to do is remove and replace the battery. Others have a back cover that is not easily removed, so you need an experienced tech to replace the battery for you.

For Android battery replacement, turn to the best Android repair technicians. We train and certify our technicians, so they have the skills and knowledge to repair Android devices. Contact us today for more information on how we can solve your Android battery problems.

Top iOS 9.3 Tips

May 12th, 2016

Top iOS 9.3 TipsWith each update, iOS users end up with a smorgasbord of features that were not available before. The problem is that most people don’t even know they exist. The following are just some of the many iOS features that rolled out with 9.3

Turn Off the Blue Light

You’ve probably heard you shouldn’t use your iPhone or iPad before bed because it can keep you from sleeping well at night. Well, that’s not true anymore. You can use it, as long as you turn the Night Shift on. The Night Shift reduces the blue wavelength of the screen. Just go to Settings > Display & Brightness > Night Shift.

Wi-Fi Calling

Yes, Wi-Fi calling. You can now call people through Wi-Fi rather than use airtime charges (if you don’t have unlimited). You will need to turn this feature on by going to Settings>Phone>Wi-Fi Calling.

AT&T Users: Guess what? You can call internationally with Wi-Fi calling!

Create GIFs

Everyone is loving GIFs, especially since they are now a big part of Twitter. You can create GIFs easily with iOS 9 with it’s Live Photos feature. All you have to do is hold your finger on the picture when you view it afterwards and you’ll get a little live motion from when the picture was taken.

Bonus: Save your GIF as a wallpaper, for a really cool effect.

Turn Low Power On

Forgot your charger? No worries; just turn low power on and you’ll likely save the battery long enough until you can get to it. Just go to Setting>Battery and then turn the low power setting on.

Select All Images

Before iOS 9.3, you had to tap each image you wanted to select. Now, you can simply drag your finger across the images to select them.

Two Finger Text Select

On the iPad, you can them select a word or sentence easier. Just tap your finger two times and then spread them to highlight what you want to select.


If you want to work while watching YouTube on the iPad, go ahead and use the picture in picture video. You can simply tap on the picture in picture icon to bring YouTube or whatever you’re watching to the top corner making it smaller, and then bring up the app you want to work in.

We hope you’ve enjoyed learning more about your iOS device. Have fun with these new features! If you ever have any issues with your device, remember iResQ. Our certified techs will take care of any problems you may have with your iPhone, iPad, and/or iPod.

Electronics and Water – Summertime Weather Reminder

May 10th, 2016

water damageMemorial Day is right around the corner. This is the time when many pools open for the summer. Since people are used to bringing their phones and tablets with them everywhere they go, it’s common for these electronics to be around water during the warmer months, which could result in water damage.

At iResQ, we want to remind everyone to take extra care of devices during the summer. We know it’s fun to take selfies with friends near the water or catch those precious moments with your babies by the pool, but water damage can ruin a perfect day.

When a device falls into a pool, it only takes a second for water to infiltrate the inside of the phone or tablet. The water isn’t as much of a problem. It’s the reaction the electricity in the phone produced by the battery that causes the device to malfunction.

This is why if your device ever gets water dumped on it or it falls into the pool, don’t turn it on if it is off. Turning it on will cause the battery to spark and it could end up not only frying the battery but other mechanisms inside of the unit.

It’s important to try to dry the phone or tablet as much as possible before turning it on. Many people use the rice trick (placing the device into a bag of rice), since the rice can absorb the water. Others have found this to be ineffective. It’s worth a try after shaking the device as vigorously as possible to get as much water out of it as possible and then allow it to dry for at least 24 hours.

Water Damage – Is the Device Dead Forever?

If you do happen to turn your device on after water damage, it’s probably not completely done for. You can have the device repaired because the parts affected by the water can be replaced. Sometimes, if the water damage is bad enough, so many of the parts will need to be replaced that it makes sense to buy a new phone.

It’s difficult to know if that is the case, unless you have it assessed by an experienced technician, like the ones at iResQ. We train and certify all of our technicians and they can tell you what it will take to return your phone to its original working state.

Diagnostics at iResQ are free. Simply send your phone or tablet to us, and we will let you know the repair cost. You can then decide if you want us to move forward with the repair.

Have a happy, safe summer season!
