People around the world first knew about the iPhone when it was released last June 29, 2007 by the company founder Steve Jobs. It brought a unique direction to the phone market during this time because it was truly different, especially compared to the common phones that were available in the market then. Once they were able to grasp how to use this innovative smartphone properly, people found out that they can do more through this device just by tapping its screen. As a matter of fact, some even compare it to an assistant and even a personal computer. The discovery of this phone has certainly changed the smartphone industry with an outstanding commercial success for about a decade already. IPhone 1st Generation, iPhone 3G, iPhone3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4 CDMA, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, and iPhone SE are the different smartphones that Apple offers. These devices greatly contributed to the success of the technology company.

Common Phone Damages


Phone damages are indeed unavoidable. In this regard, users must always execute utter caution while using their devices. However, if any unfortunate occurrence happened that resulted to damage in the device or its contents, you must have it repaired as soon as possible to avoid further problems from occurring. Below are some of the most common issues that you should watch out for:

  • Cracking of the screen
  • Dysfunctional battery
  • Unresponsive touch screen
  • Unresponsive home and volume buttons

The mentioned problems might occur due to accidents or simply because of carelessness. Whatever the cause might be, it is crucial to take your phone to a professional immediately so that the problem can be repaired as soon as possible. To prevent these issues from occurring and to safeguard your device, it is best to follow some preventive measures.

Check the Warranty


Most mobile phones have warranty or a guarantee from the manufacturer that they will fix certain problems – that you did not cause – in your device. Unfortunately, warranties are pretty limited; depending on your device and the manufacturer, some issues might not be covered by warranty and if your device gets damaged outside of the warranty period, the manufacturer will no longer repair it. This is why it is important to check the warranty before buying a device. Unfortunately, although warranties are almost always free, the repair usually takes too long.

Preventive Measures


Caution is the top preventive measure for smartphones. Always place your iPhone in secure areas where there are no chances that they might fall. Additionally, you should use a quality and sturdy phone case in order to protect your phone from external damages and cushion it if ever it falls. Meanwhile, applying screen guards will help safeguard your screen from scratches.
