Most of the problems are minor but in case yours runs into a serious issue, be advised to have it checked and repaired by a professional iPhone 7 repair Singapore service or at Apple’s Customer Center if you still have warranty. Let’s take a quick look at some of the common issues faced by many iPhone 7 users.
iPhone 7 Screen Problems
There are many iPhone 7 screen glitches you may un into including the following:
- Cracked Screen
This is by far one of the most common iPhone 7 screen damages. Your iPhone screen can develop spider web cracks if dropped from a distance of two feet and unfortunately land face down. There may be less damage if it lands on its side but bearing in mind that this model has sensitive features such as Multi-Touch and Tap gestures, the damage can be quite severe.
A cracked screen has no other option but to get it replaced as soon as possible. You may think that you can continue using the phone after it develops minor cracks but keep in mind that with a damaged screen, it will be susceptible to further internal damage. Drops of moisture or pressure can easily interfere with the phone’s internal system. Water can destroy the motherboard and render your precious device completely useless. Your best option is to have the screen replaced at a good iPhone 7 repair Singapore center such as iRepair along Prinsep Street.
- iPhone 7 Touch ID does not work
There have been complains on Apple Forum by users who are having trouble with their phone Touch ID. This key feature suddenly stops working or malfunctions without an apparent reason.
- You could restart the phone and check if Touch ID is working again.
- You can clean the sensor since dirt and dust often interfere with the sensor.
- Download and update the operating system to iOS 10.2.1
If none of the above works, it could be a hardware problem that can only be repaired at Apple’s Center or by a professional iPhone repair Singapore service.
- Unresponsive or locked up screen
Your iPhone 7 screen can suddenly freeze and become unresponsive. It simply does not respond.
The problem could either be a software or hardware issue that can best be addressed by a Singapore iPhone 7 repairs professional or at Apple’s Center if you still have a warranty.
iPhone 7 Water Damage
Despite having water-resistant features, the iPhone 7 is not completely waterproof. It is still a delicate device that can suffer severe damage when completely immersed in water. Withstanding splashes and raindrops does not mean the phone cannot suffer water damage.
Potential Solutions to Water Damage
Once your iPhone 7 falls into water or any other liquid such as wine or coffee, power it off immediately and take it to a good iPhone 7 repair Singapore shop. This will avoid further damage or corrosion. Avoid some of the common myths propagated online such as sticking it inside a bowl of uncooked rice, drying it with a blow dryer, or leaving it in the sun or close to a heater to dry up.
Low Battery Capacity
The iPhone 7 comes with a stronger battery than the previous iPhone versions. The battery might take a few days to adjust to your usage especially if you run multiple apps at the same time and may even appear to have a poor capacity. However, if the battery continues to show declining capacity even after you have charged it sufficiently, you may need to consider having it replaced at a reliable iPhone 7 repair Singapore shop such as iRepair.
iPhone 7 Random Reboot
Random reboot is another problem reported by iPhone 7 users. In this case, the phone shuts down on its own, shows you the apple logo and lock screen before rebooting again. It is a very frustrating experience, to say the least.
You can try to get a temporary solution to the problem by pressing the Volume Down button together with the Power button at the same time. The phone will show the Apple logo and restart again. However, this is a temporary solution so your best option is to take it to Apple or have the problem repaired at a Singapore iPhone shop.
