iPhone 7 Repair: No Headphone jack? NO HEADPHONE JACK? This caused more controversy in the tech community than the Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie breakup. So why did Apple remove the headphone jack? Some people joke, "so they could sell it back to us as an adapter :)" But the real reason is so that they can make the iPhone 7 water resistant. Per usual, the iPhone 7 offers some upgrades from the iPhone 6s including; quicker processing time, longer battery life, better display, and water resistance. So let's talk about water resistance.
iPhone 7 Water Resistance Please note that water resistance is NOT waterproof. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are rated as being IP67 splash, water, and dust resistant under IEC standard 60529. Which means, the iPhone 7 can survive being submerged in just over three feet of water for up to 30 minutes. 3 feet in clean laboratory water for up to 30 minutes. This is water with no chemical(chlorine, ext). And here is the kicker, Apple won’t warranty any kind of water damage to the phone. Even the day after you buy it, if it gets submerged and is ruined, you are out of luck. So we highly recommend everyone to not bring their phone in any pools, hot tubs, baths, showers. It's just not worth it! Not until the phones are actually waterproof. Also, normal wear in tear on the phone will degrade the water resistance. Just the oils from your hand can dissolve the adhesive which protects the phone from water.
Water resistance is lost after iPhone 7 repair When the phone is opened the water-resistant seal is broken. We replace this seal, but we can't do it good enough to claim that the phone will still be water resistant. Apple has robots apply this seal with precision. We only have our human hands, which are not perfect. So please note that phones will no longer be water resistant after the repair. Side note: if your screen is cracked, it won’t be water resistant since the water can seep through the cracked glass. Our Original Screens We offer both aftermarket screens and original screens for your iPhone. The original screens have original Apple LCDs. We take the broken top glass of the phone and replace it. This way you get to keep the original Apple LCD. Since we are a mobile company, we can’t do this top glass iPhone 7 repair at your location(because the equipment is very heavy). We arrive with screens that already have been refurbished. Click the article to learn more about the difference of aftermarket and original screens.
Difference between Aftermarket and Original Screens The Original screen is going to look better; ie. more contrast higher resolution. It will have a slightly quicker response, and the 3D touch will respond better. The other big difference is that when the Original screen top glass breaks, you will still be able to use the phone(the touch still works). On the aftermarket screens, if the top glass breaks there is a reasonable chance that the phone will lose touch functionality in certain parts of the screen.
