Increased moisture resistance and dust resistance are slogans that are used by manufacturers to iPhone 7 models and versions above. It’s all about modern technology IP67. Partly such statements are true, but not 100 %.

In fact, not a single iPhone brand device, even the most modern, is not able to completely ignore the wet. Models from seven and higher are close to the ideal, but still sometimes fail. Very often, even after short.Term getting wet, users are faced with non.Working speakers or darning of the screen.

After flooding, problems began with energy consumption on the primary power circuit. When starting, there was a cyclic reboot

One of the features of the iPhone X and more new Apple smartphones, the motherboard of this apparatus is a single design consisting of two separate parts, soldered to each other in the form of a sandwich. The main elements are on the upper part. Processor, memory, power controller and so on, and on the lower. The radio part where the modem is placed and all the components responsible for ensuring that the iPhone connects to the network. To eliminate the problem with energy consumption, the engineer divides the fee into two parts.

On the board you can notice traces of corrosion

The upper half of the fee does not consume anything

Checking the lower part of the energy consumption of the primary circuit

Further, using freezing, the engineer searches for increased heating to determine the failed element.

In this case, the sound amplifier in the iPhone x failed. To fix the problem, the specialist dismantles the damaged element and sets a new.

It is necessary to replace the failed element

Since the “sandwich” boards are soldered with a fusible low.Temperature solder, it is soldered by heating without the use of thermophen. Thus, local overheating can be avoided due to uniform heating of the board.

After the adhesion, the board is once again checked on the LBP without periphery. To check the energy consumption.

The board starts with normal energy consumption

After installing the board in the housing, we turn on the phone repeated from the power supply.

Additionally, the specialist replaced the vibration engine, which also failed.
