Have you experienced gray bars at the top of your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus screen? Or is the touch unresponsive and not working all together? Or maybe it works sometimes and you have to restart the phone or turn the screen off and on again to get it to do anything.
All of those issues are signs that the iPhone touch ic (integrated circuit) has failed or is failing. But what causes this? #BENDGATE. The terrible design of the iphone 6 / 6 plus models are at fault. The shape of the housing and soft aluminum material allows the phone to bend very easily which then bends the logic board inside. The ic chip “Meson” U2402 and “Cumulus” U2401 lose continuity with the board and cause the issues listed above.
Unfortunately Apple Inc is going out of their way to not admit that there is even an issue. I have spoken with a few Apple “Geniuses” and this is an extremely common problem they find especially on the iPhone 6 Plus. And their only remedy… “Buy a new phone”
I feel that as soon as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are considered obsolete or we are well into the iPhone 8, Apple will then announce that there is an issue. But by then no one has the phone anymore and they are in the clear.
So what can you do?
Well Apple has their Out-of-warranty replacement that is $299 for the iPhone 6 and $329 for the iPhone 6 plus. And kiss all of your data goodbye!
Or you can send it in to Apple Pie Repair and let our Certified Microsoldering Technician replace these two ic chips and get your phone back in working order for less than half of what Apple charges. Yes it can be done and you get to keep all of your data. We always replace both the meson and cumulus ic and reinforce the board afterwards. Most mail in repairs are completed the same day your device arrives and back in the mail the next day. This repair is $149 with free return shipping in the continental US.
