iPhone 6 Repairs

iPhone 6

If you have an iPhone 6 with a screen that is cracked, has a distorted image, no image, or otherwise broken, SimplyFixIt can help. If it has a battery issue, maybe it’s not charging properly? Maybe the battery drains too quickly or the iPhone 6 shuts down when it reaches 30% battery? We can fix that too. We know that your iPhone is important to you, so most iPhone 6 repairs are carried out within an hour.

Quality of components.

Not all iPhone components are created equally. When we first started iPhone repairs, Apple would make genuine parts available for companies like ours to carry out repairs. But as they have moved more towards pushing people towards replacing damaged devices, rather than repairing them, they have restricted the availability of some genuine Apple parts. But because of our history of offering high-quality iPhone 6 repairs we have been able to build relationships with the factories who make the screens for Apple, and we are able to fit high quality replacement components in all of our repairs. (For iPhone 6 battery repairs we will always try to fit an original Apple battery.) Put simply; we don’t use cheap screens that have been bought from eBay and we didn’t learn our craft from watching YouTube videos.

Our Guarantee

SimplyFixIt uses Apple Certified Technicians to carry out repairs on Apple devices, including the iPhone 6. There isn’t anyone else in Edinburgh or Glasgow who uses technicians who have been certified by Apple. We back that up with a 3-month warranty on all iPhone 6 repairs. We also offer a MobileShield™ warranty whereby if your iPhone 6 screen breaks in the next 12-months, we’ll fix it for free. No questions asked.

Please choose the repair that you need from the selection to get more information, including the prices. All repairs include VAT, and come with 3-month warranty as standard.

iPhone 6 Screen Repairs

Even the most careful person can have an accident involving their iPhone 6. The screen can crack or worse, smash so that it shows some of the electronics underneath. Don’t worry. We can make it better. We will repair or replace the screen on your iPhone 6, using certified technicians and high quality components. That’s why we can offer a 3-month warranty on all iPhone 6 screen repairs.

How to get your iPhone fixed.

Walk-in Repairs

There is no need to make an appointment at a SimplyFixIt Repair Centre. There are currently 8 stores in Edinburgh & Glasgow. Most are open 7 days a week, with some offering early opening or late closing. We know nobody likes to be without their phone so we’ll try to fix your iPhone during your visit, or certainly within a very short period of time. (Normally 1-2 hours). In more complex cases, we might need to keep it for further tests. If we do have to do that, we will still do our best to get your iPhone back to you as soon as possible.

Send in for repair.

If you can’t visit a SimplyFixIt Repair centre, you can still get your iPhone fixed by our Apple Certified Technicians. Visit our Mail-in iPhone Repair pages for more details.

Your data.

The data on your iPhone is important. Phones don’t just have telephone numbers any more. They have our photos, our chat history and our Facebook posts. Be sure to back it up before you get it repaired. If you don’t have a recent backup, speak to your SimplyFixIt Technician. Unlike Apple, we don’t routinely wipe the iPhone before giving it back to you. We will do our best to make sure nothing happens to your data, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Our technicians can show you how to make sure your iPhone is routinely backed up every night so that you don’t lose any data ever. It’s built into your iPhone & free so make sure to ask if you have any questions.

How much does it cost?

Accidental damage isn’t covered by the Apple’s Warranty, so unfortunately, there will always be a cost, even if your iPhone is brand new. For an iPhone 6, the price for a screen repair or replacement is normally £99 including VAT unless you have our MobileShield™ warranty. In that case the repair will be free.

iPhone Front Glass Repair

We see a lot of shops offering "glass replacements" for iPhones. This might seem like a good idea because after all, it is normally just the glass that is broken, right? The problem is that the screen on an iPhone is made up of a sealed unit where the screen, the touch sensors and the glass are sealed together. If someone peels the glass off the screen and refits new glass they will not be able to fuse the 3 components together again. That means that there is air between the screen and the glass, which causes touch issues and can lead to dust appearing under the glass. The touch issues can range from the screen being unresponsive, so you need to press twice on an icon to open an app right up to "dead" areas appearing on the iPhone. This means that some parts of your screen just don’t work with your finger at all. The best case scenario is that your £500 — £800 iPhone is not as good as before. The worst case is that it stops working altogether after a couple of weeks. You’ll always find that shops that just change the glass tend to be aware of the how often problems arise, and either they don’t offer a warranty or else it’s only a few days.

SimplyFixIt, just like Apple, replace the whole screen unit. So you get a new sealed unit which is just as good as the original. Plus we give you a 3-month warranty so that you can be confident that there’s not going to be any issues down the line.

Battery or Charging issues

Do you have problems with your iPhone battery? Examples of this are when an iPhone doesn’t charge properly when connected to a lightning cable, or that the iPhone shuts down suddenly during normal use. We commonly hear that the battery can be at 30% and then all of a sudden the iPhone just turns off.

Try restarting your iPhone because that can sometimes fix battery issues. We also have tips on how to extend the battery life of your iPhone if it seems to be draining too quickly. Is your iPhone battery completely drained and won’t accept a charge? Make sure you’ve given your iPhone enough time on charge. If your iPhone has been without charge for while, it will take more time than normal before it registers that there is any charge in the battery.

If your iPhone is not charging, try to use a different cable and power socket. If you normally charge your iPhone by plugging it into your laptop or MacBook, try plugging it into a USB charger that is connected to the mains electricity.

How much does it cost?

Repair pricing depends on the diagnosis and what, if any, components will need to be replaced. Other power issues require further testing before we can give pricing. We have found that in a lot of cases where it seems that a battery needs to be replaced, it is actually a completely different issue. So it’s best to have a trained technician look at your iPhone first.

Liquid Damage

One of the most common types of repairs that we see is iPhones that have come into contact with water, or other liquid. We also see a lot of shops advertise that they can fix liquid damaged iPhones. But the truth is that water and electricity are not good friends and sometimes the damage is so bad that it cannot be fixed.

When a liquid gets into your iPhone, it can cause corrosion on the electronics. The thing with corrosion is that it can mean that the damage is getting worse every day, especially if the water is not completely removed from the inside of the iPhone 6. The solder on the main circuit board gets weaker because of the liquid and this causes electronic issues, such as speakers not working or the phone signal to start dropping out. This is why sometimes an iPhone will work fine for the first day or so, but over time will actually get worse.

What about rice?

Let me be absolutely straight. We don’t recommend that you put rice anywhere near your iPhone. All that will happen is that rice will get into your headphone jack, and the charging port. Your iPhone will dry, just as it would without the rice, and if it works, that’s great, but the rice did nothing. (Except possibly cause issues later down the line).

Reviveaphone

Revive a phone is a £15 product that can revive your iPhone if it is not working after coming into contact with liquid. It has been won prizes on the BBC, Yahoo and many newspapers because it has a really good success rate. If your iPhone is dead, and Reviveaphone couldn’t make it work again, then it is most likely not worth spending the money to have a technician open the iPhone and spend time trying to fix the damage.
