It’s common for an iPhone to malfunction or get damaged from time to time. Problems such as iPhone not charging or iPhone screen getting cracked are all common problems that we see from day to day. Here are top 10 iPhone problems and solutions you can try to troubleshoot your iPhone issues!
1. iPhone Screen Is Cracked
Having your iPhone screen cracked is unbelievably irritating and it happens frequently. A cracked iPhone screen might still work, but it becomes extremely vulnerable to further damage. For example, water damage can occur if it slips through the cracked glass, or your touchscreen may no longer respond after prolonged use with a cracked screen. We recommend repairing your screen immediately to avoid further damage and costs in the future.
Please don’t attempt to replace or repair an iPhone screen yourself because it takes a tremendous amount of experience and different equipment and skillset to install an iPhone screen properly. You can easily damage your iPhone further or a new iPhone screen without professional experience. To repair an iPhone screen, we’d recommend you to book a phone repair appointment with one of our phone repair technicians and we’ll be delighted to repair or replace a iPhone phone screen.
2. iPhone Audio Issues
Many iPhones have audio issues and it is most common in the iPhone 7 (though it happens to other models as well). For example, you may find that people have a hard time hearing you during calls, or you might not be able to hear others consistently. This is because the audio chip in the iPhone are not always very stable inside of the iPhone due to the way the phone is soldered. If you drop your iPhone or if you frequently put your phone in your back pocket (which can cause the iPhone to bend), the audio chip may become loose. If you have audio issues on your iPhone, we’d recommend you to book a phone repair appointment with one of our phone repair technicians and we can have your iPhone repaired within one day.

Another common iPhone problem that we see is that the battery doesn’t charge or charges slowly when the charger is plugged in. There are a few solutions for this issue. You can try to clean the charging port to remove dust or debris with a compressed air or a dry tissue. If the issue persists, check the lightning cable and see if it works with other Apple devices. You can also try using your cable with another device or a different cable to determine what is broken. If the other Apple devices charge when you plug a lightning cable in them, there’s something wrong with your iPhone.
