You’re Running Out Of Time To Have Your iPhone 5 Battery Replaced!

iPhone 5 repair MelbourneWe’re nearing the deadline for Apple’s iPhone 5 battery replacement program, which will terminate in January 2016.

Battery replacement is the second most common iPhone 5 repair – second only to iPhone 5 screen repair. Although every iPhone battery has a limited lifespan, iPhone 5s purchased between September 2012 and January 2013, were particularly prone to battery failure. This caused Apple to announce its iPhone 5 battery replacement program, in 2014.

The offer was only valid for the two years following purchase, however, which would have only extended to the beginning of 2015. Apple graciously extended the offer to January 2016, which is right around the corner.

Apple believes that only a small number of handsets sold during that period were defective, they still extended the program.

How It Works

If you feel that your iPhone 5 may be eligible for the battery replacement program, and you’d like to seek a free battery replacement:

To prepare for iPhone 5 Battery Replacement:

  • Backup your data with iCloud or iTunes.
  • Turn off ‘Find My Phone‘.
  • Erase your data and settings under Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Contents and Settings.

Eligibility may be limited to the country in which the handset was purchased. If you have already paid to have an iPhone 5 battery replaced, you can contact Apple to inquire about a refund.

Not eligible for the Apple iPhone 5 battery replacement program? Missed the deadline? Not to worry, we handle every type of iPhone 5 repair in Melbourne. Repairs can often be completed in 24 hours or less, with original manufacturers parts.

Apple Announces New Battery 25-Hour Battery Pack For iPhone 6 & 6s

iPhone 6 repair MelbourneiPhone users received a pleasant surprise last weekend, in the form of an unexpected battery pack upgrade. Seeing as how battery replacements are one of the most common iPhone 6 repairs, this is good news indeed.

iPhone 6 Battery Pack Design & Features

The new battery case for both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s looks very similar to existing iPhone cases, but bears a number of innovative features (besides being able to go over a day without recharging). Rather than the brickish, bulky design of many iPhone cases, the new battery case looks like a common protective case, with a slight lump on its back for the battery.

Keeping with the minimalist design, Apple put all of the identifying features on the inside, printing the serial number and FCC stamp on an attractive dove grey felt lining.

Why an FCC stamp, you might ask?

Apple had the foresight to install an integrated antenna, to make sure the battery case doesn’t interfere with the reception. An LED was also included, between the felt and the case, to indicate when the case is charging when there’s no phone in it. The LED blinks solid green, when fully charged, and solid orange while it is still charging.

Overall Impressions

The battery case fits snugly around the phone – a little too snugly in the case of the iPhone 6s. While both models slide in easily, you have to wiggle the case a bit to get the iPhone 6s out. The case also adds roughly 2.5 cm to the length o the phone, which could mess up your texting muscle memory, so be advised. The good news, though, is the battery is a little lighter than the previous model. Your iPhone is still able to easily fit in your back pocket, when need be, so the additional length is a minor quibble.

All of these features, with a slick design, in addition to the staggeringly long battery life, should make this a solid investment at the MRSP of $99 USD.

The Most Common Mobile Phone Repairs

Mobile Phone Repair Melbourne
Have you dropped your iPad in the mashed potatoes? Chipped your Android’s edges? Living with a screen covered in spiderweb cracks, ready to break apart into an ice storm of broken glass at any moment? Any of these things could leave you looking for mobile phone repairs in Melbourne.

Don’t feel bad. You are not alone.
In fact, 21.7% of people are using mobile devices with cracked screens, according to this recent survey. Many people just let it go, not realizing that a cracked screen can lead to difficulties with the phone’s inner workings later on.

 

The Most Common Types Of Mobile Phone Repairs:

Cracked Screen 21.7%
Battery Repairs 16.1%
Won’t Charge 9.7%
Broken Buttons 6.3%
Sound Problems 6.3%

 

Reasons People Avoid Mobile Phone Repairs:

 

  • Too Busy
  • Think Repairs Will Be Expensive
  • Don’t Know Where To Find Phone Repairs In Melbourne
  • Don’t Know Who To Trust
  • Think It Would Be Cheaper To Just Buy A New Phone Or Tablet
  • Embarrassed

When we look at it like this, we realize how unreasonable so many of the reasons we have for not fixing our phones just don’t make sense. Like the notion, “I don’t have time to find screen repair in Melbourne.” If moisture gets inside the phone case, the whole device could shut down, and then you could be left without a phone for days, up to a week or even longer.

Could you live without your phone for a week?

The numbers just don’t make sense, when you think of the buying a brand new iPhone 6 versus fixing a chipped screen. A great majority of mobile phone repairs are relatively cheap, and can be done that day.
Considering the fact that the cell phone repair industry is growing by $1 billion USD each year, there’s no need to feel embarrassed when you run your Samsung Galaxy over with a golf cart. We’ve all been there.
