On the one hand, very convenient because saves us from a lot of things. On the other hand — and what to do if your phone something happens? If it breaks or gets lost?
If you are in a situation when you need to restore your iPhone, don’t immediately panic. Instead, squeeze your butt, as they say, just fucking google! By the way, this is what we took and collected for you a good bunch of tips for different cases of incapacity of your iPhone.
Of course, there is no guarantee that these tips will be miraculous and will raise your favorite device, but it’s worth a try to apply them in any case, it’s better than throwing myself on the bed and sobbing in inconsolable grief.
Dry your iPhone
Most often iPhones turn into nothing because of contact with water. To our great (to the center of the Earth) unfortunately, this damage guarantee does not cover, and the iPhones have built-in water sensors, so you will not be able to cheat masters and to come up with another reason for failure, so you can’t replace him, money cannot be reimbursed. If you managed (unfortunate!) soak your iPhone, don’t need to give up and accept the fact that all is lost. The main thing — do not try immediately to switch it on again after getting wet, because the chip is likely to deteriorate and to recover one will be almost impossible.
IPhone recovery begins with towel drying it and then it should be placed in a container of dry rice in a warm dry room to prevent the spread of moisture inside the phone. Then it would be nice to get hold of the bags with moisture absorbers are often found in boxes of shoes, and all in a row, usually there still is a scary mark «DO NOT EAT». It is usually these silicone beads: dump them out of the bags and put it in a zip Lok, and next to them put that same iPhone, seal and leave it for a few days. This should suck out of the phone remained moisture, and if you’re lucky, your iPhone will come back to life.
No luck? The last method is to wrap the iPhone in a towel and turn the oven on 60 degrees, if there is such option. Put the iPhone in a towel to the edge of the oven shelf and leave the door open and let him do it for two hours. This is a very risky move, but someone helped — and in the end, does it really matter if a broken iPhone is still sent to landfill?

Cracked or broken screen
If you broke the screen of your iPhone, you first need to check that responds to touch. If the screen works, you have now one concern — not whether the glass stuck in your fingers.

Developed and special stuff to fix scratches on iPhones, for example, the thing called Ice Creme Advanced Scratch Remover that removes damage from acrylic, polycarbonate and metal surfaces. I Google, worth 23 bucks, the kit includes two bottles and some more applicators, cloths and special thing for metal.
Another solution to the problem — iDrops. The more common trick resorted to by the owners of iPhones is woolen cloth or other abrasives that can defeat a small roughness of metal parts. But it is so so, not very efficient. Anyone worried about scratches, for those there are manifold covers and a special plastic film for iPhones.
The speaker paused
Often the owner of the iPhone did not hear what he tells the person on the other end… uh… wire, not because the speaker broke. For example, this could be a problem with the audio output: phone may seem to be connected to the headphone because the connector got some mud — it happens sometimes. The iPhone thinks you’re in the headphones, and continues to send the audio connector for them. So you can start to clean up there, for example, with a cotton swab.
Apple’s official solution is to insert and pull out headphones five times in a row with maximum speed. This will switch the sound to normal and the phone will speak again. At least it should.
