Have you noticed a strange gray bar at the top of your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus screen.  Has the touch sensitivity on your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus just stopped working all together? We’ve noticed it too.  And so have a lot of other people, including the folks at Apple.

What’s causing this issue?

Remember #bendgate?  Very shortly after the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus was released, there were reports and videos galore about the frame of the iPhone frame bending with relative ease.  As a result, after the prolonged use and bending of the iPhones over the course of a year or two, there are two IC chips in charge of regulating the touch that are failing.

So what is Apple doing about these Gray Bars of Death?

You would think that with a problem taking up nearly 30% of all Genius Bar appointments for iPhone 6 Plus, and over 10% for the iPhone 6, Apple would do something about it. Unfortunately, if you take it to the Apple store, while they do in fact acknowledge the problem, and tell you that it’s fairly common, they tell you “sorry you can either buy a new phone, or pay the out of warranty repair.”

So what are we looking at for an out of warranty cost?  On the iPhone 6 Apple charges $299 to replace the device, and on the iPhone 6 Plus they charge $329.  And what about your data?  It’s gone.  But it doesn’t have to be.

What can I do about it?

We’re offering the iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus touch disease repair for only $129.99 + tax   We’ve got specialized micro-soldering technicians that can do your repair correct and efficiently, saving your data and saving you hundreds of dollars in the process.

Is it time to replace my battery?

By | iPhone Repair, News & Notes | No Comments

Enlarged BatteryEvery year, when the temperatures plummet, we see an influx of battery replacements.  The cold weather just seems to wreak havoc on the batteries, so extended use outside could cause your phone to drain quicker than normal, and shut off randomly, even though the battery still has power.  In older phones, this occurance is far more common as the batteries have less cycles left in their life span.  The cold weather just seems to exploit this.

Also with bad / older batteries they tend to swell. This can lead to a dangerous situation as they also tend to overheat and they can actually explode.

Below is a list of symptoms for a bad battery.

  • Poor battery life. Depending on the model device you have, you should at least be able to get 4.5 hours of moderate use.
  • Premature Shutdown. If your phone shuts off prematurely, a new battery would surely resolve the problem.
  • Swelling. If you’ve got an iphone 4 or 4s, and the back glass looks like it’s protruding, or there’s pressure on the front of the screen / discoloration, this can be a sign of swelling and you should replace the battery immediately.

If you experience any of the above, we’d suggest getting a new battery. With an appointment, a battery replacement only takes about 15 minutes. We’ve got 6 convenient locations to serve you in Manhattan and Brooklyn. If you’ve got any questions, don’t hesitate to call. 347-469-0378.

This Is What ‘Unlimited Data’ Looks Like On AT&T

By | News & Notes | No Comments

10289893_10103522338113032_7634363756502957396_nI’ve been an AT&T customer for over 10 years. Back when they were AT&T Wireless, which was before Cingular. The only, and I mean only reason I’ve stuck around was because of my Unlimited Plan.  That, and the fact they would allow me for early upgrades for the new iPhones every October. Since they eliminated the early upgrade promo when the 5S came out, the only reason to still stick around was for the unlimited data.

In the past I’ve read about AT&T throttling data to it’s highest usage customers, but I’m generally on wifi and it’s never really been much of a problem…  at least enough of a problem for me to dig a little deeper. That was until today… everything was like going through mud. Checking my bank account felt like an eternity. Loading an image attachment in mail? Impossible. This along with reading that the FTC is suing AT&T for it’s deceptive practices made me dig a little deeper…

The image to the right is a screenshot of my data tests using the speedtest.net app on my iPhone 6 on “LTE” in the middle of Midtown Manhattan today.

Gee I wonder what my data speed is capped at.  Anyone have similar experiences?
