If you are on Youtube often, then you have probably come across a how-to video on how to repair an iPhone. The content creators making these videos make it seem as though it is easy to switch out a motherboard or replace a battery. They always talk about how much money you’ll save by doing the repairs on your own. However, they never talk about what can go wrong, and how much it may cost you to try to fix your iPhone after your repair attempts.
Repairing Your iPhone on Your Own Is a Bad Idea
In today’s world, people are encouraged to take on a DIY approach to almost everything from home renovations to iPhone repairs. All you have to do is Google the problems to find out what the issue is. Is your roof leaking? Watch this 20-minute video and you’ll have all the knowledge you need to fix it.
While there are some things that are great projects to take on on your own, like fixing a leaky faucet, there are other projects that are better left to professionals, which includes iPhone repairs. iPhones are complex and intricate devices. An easy way to determine if you really want to take apart your iPhone is to ask yourself: If the solutions suggested in the video don’t fix the issue, what will I do next?
Youtube Made It Look Easy
Like in television, there is a lot going on behind the scenes that you don’t know about, especially since the creator is trying to make themselves appear knowledgeable on the subject matter. Did the person you are watching really fix the phone that they said they did? Even if they did, how much footage was cut to make it appear easy?
Let’s give content creators the benefit of the doubt and argue that they post iPhone repair videos with the best intentions of educating people out there on how they can save money by doing their own repairs. But what happens when the repair job goes amiss? What happens if you are unable to disconnect a cable or you lose a small screw? In those cases, among many more, there is no one to call and you are on your own.
Whether it is your battery that needs to be repaired, or you have an issue with the motherboard, it’s always best to take it into the shop so that it can be properly diagnosed. Reputable shops will have experienced technicians that have years of experience in repairing iPhones and will be able to fix your iPhone properly.
