In the realm of iPhone repairs, the choices are vast when a screen needs replacing. However, not all replacement parts are created equal. Many repair services might opt for the path of least resistance – using inexpensive, aftermarket screens. But at iCorrect, we adopt a different approach, one that centres on quality, sustainability, and staying true to the original design of the iPhone. We utilise Original ‘pulled’ screens, which are carefully disassembled from iPhones and require no refurbishment, and original screens that have been refurbished in-house. This blog post delves into why we choose this path and how it benefits our customers and the environment.
Our Aim: Repairs to Apple’s Standards
Our mission at iCorrect is to ensure that every repair we undertake aligns as closely as possible with the original manufacturing standards set by Apple. When we perform a screen replacement, we don’t just switch out the damaged screen for an aftermarket one; we replace the screen for a screen which is original or as close to the original as possible (which has been through a refurbishment process).
In our refurbishment process we take the time to carefully remove the damaged components and replace them with parts that are as close to Apple’s original. This component could be a microcomponent or could be the glass/touch layer of the screen. Yes, it is a meticulous process and can be quite lengthy, but the end result is worth it. We pride ourselves on providing repairs that we believe would meet Apple’s standards if they operated an independent repair company. That’s the high standard we set for every repair job we undertake.
Our Reputation Amongst Corporate Clients
Our commitment to quality and our expertise in delivering repairs to Apple’s standard has garnered us the trust and patronage of many corporate clients. Companies such as Panasonic, Inditex (The Zara group), and Pret A Manger choose iCorrect for their repair needs, recognising the value of our bespoke level of service. For our non-corporate clients, our reputation is equally strong, reflected in over 500 verified Google reviews.
The Superior Performance of Original and Refurbished iPhone Screens
When it comes to the performance of original ‘pulled’ screens and those refurbished by us, they function just as you would expect an iPhone coming straight out of the Apple Store to function. This is how the technology was designed, and we aim to keep it that way. Conversely, the problem with aftermarket screens lies in their reliability. Because these screens differ significantly from the original, down to the microchip level, they simply aren’t the same. The pixel density isn’t the same, the brightness isn’t the same, which fundamentally makes them different. At iCorrect, we are on a mission to provide repairs that are as close to the original as possible.
Early Adopters of a Sustainable iPhone Repair
In an era where technology is rapidly advancing and the lifespan of devices seems to shrink in response, the importance of sustainable repair practices cannot be overstated. It’s not just about extending the life of a device but also about reducing the environmental impact associated with electronic waste. At iCorrect, we are proud to be among the early adopters of this sustainable approach to iPhone repairs.
Our commitment to sustainability is deeply ingrained in our repair process, especially in how we handle iPhone screens. When we receive an original iPhone screen that needs replacement, our first step isn’t to discard the old screen. Instead, we assess it to identify components that can be saved and reused – a practice known as refurbishment.
This process involves carefully removing damaged components from the screen, whether it’s the glass or the touch layer, and replacing them with parts as close to the original as possible. While this can be a time-consuming process, it’s a crucial part of our commitment to sustainable repairs. By refurbishing screens, we not only reduce waste but also ensure that our clients receive a screen as close to the original as possible.
In addition to screen refurbishment, we also actively engage in the recycling of iPhone screens. This practice is still in its infancy in the technology repair industry, but we are among the few who recognise its potential benefits and actively implement it. This initiative is not just beneficial for the environment by reducing electronic waste, but it also guarantees that clients receive a part that closely matches the original in terms of quality and performance.
At iCorrect, we believe that the future of device repairs lies in embracing a more sustainable approach. It’s not just about fixing a device; it’s about doing so in a way that respects our planet and the limited resources it offers. By choosing original ‘pulled’ screens and refurbished screens for our iPhone repairs, we are taking a firm step towards that future. We are not only providing high-quality, reliable repairs but also contributing to a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly repair industry.
The Importance of Microelectronics in Repair
In the rapidly evolving world of technology, the complexity of device architecture continues to increase, particularly in the case of iPhones. A key element of this is the growing importance of microelectronics in repairs, especially when it comes to screen replacements.
In recent years, Apple has begun pairing the microchips controlling the screen with the logic board. This technology, known as pairing, creates a unique connection between these critical components, adding another layer of complexity to the repair process. Now, a seemingly simple repair like a screen replacement requires the expertise of a microelectronics specialist.
Microchips play a crucial role in the operation of an iPhone screen, controlling various functionalities like brightness, colour accuracy, and touch sensitivity. When these microchips are paired with the logic board, it ensures that the iPhone operates with maximum efficiency and maintains the high-quality user experience that Apple devices are known for.
At iCorrect, this is where we truly excel. We have the necessary expertise in microelectronics to successfully navigate this complexity. During the screen replacement process, we carefully transfer the microchips from your old screen to your new one. This is not a simple process; it requires precision, advanced technical skills, and the right tools. But the effort is worth it, as this ensures the part is as original as possible and retains the integrity of the device’s design.
Furthermore, transferring the microchips also allows us to maintain the original features and specifications of the screen, such as the pixel density, brightness, and touch sensitivity. All these elements combine to ensure the iPhone user experience remains seamless and consistent, even after a screen replacement.
By adhering to these rigorous standards, we aim to provide our clients with repairs that not only fix the immediate problem but also maintain the long-term performance and integrity of their iPhones. It’s all part of our commitment to offering repairs that are as close to the original specifications as possible, affirming our dedication to quality and client satisfaction.
Choosing the right repair service for your iPhone is essential. At iCorrect, we believe that repairs should always strive to restore the device back to the standard that it was originally manufactured to. Our commitment to using original ‘pulled’ screens and refurbished screens underscores this belief. We focus on providing high-quality, sustainable repair options that respect the design of your device while also contributing to the larger goal of reducing e-waste.
In the world of iPhone repairs, quality matters – and so does sustainability.
