Let’s explore some information related to iPhone logic board repairs:

  1. Complexity of Logic Board Repairs:

    • iPhones, especially those after the iPhone X, use a double-layer circuit board design. This makes repairs more difficult because components might be sandwiched between the two layers.
    • Separating and rejoining these two boards requires specialized equipment and expertise in microsoldering.
    • Board-level repairs involve skills like using a hot air station, a microscope, and extensive experience.
    • Attempting these repairs without proper knowledge can lead to irreversible damage
  2. Common Issues and Their Causes:

    • Water/Liquid Damage: If your device has been exposed to water or moisture, it’s crucial to power it off immediately to prevent short circuits. Thorough cleaning and inspection can help assess the damage.
    • Baseband Issues: Symptoms include “No Service,” “Searching,” missing modem firmware, dropped calls, or audio interruptions during calls.
    • Touch IC Problems: These occur when touch issues persist despite the screen being fine. Signs include squares on the screen, unresponsive touch, or lines appearing.
    • Audio IC Failures: Glitches in sound functions, such as creaking sounds or microphone/loudspeaker interruptions.
    • PMIC (Power Management IC) Failure: Device won’t charge or revive even with a new battery.
    • USB IC Issues: Charging problems with various symptoms2.
