  1. As a owner of an iPhone repair business, I would have to say this is well written and has a lot of valuable information regarding iPhone repair.

    Just to chime in on one topic, to repair water damage is completely possible. Listen to what the author states about not turning the device on UNTIL it is completely dry. The actual defects that are caused by water damage originate from the impurities in the water that causes corrosion on the logic board.

    At XpressFix.com, we use a ultrasonic machine to completely clean the logic board, then we let it sit and dry once again. This is a high success rate and is strongly recommended if you happen to damage your device due to liquid/water exposure.
