Has the Apple Store told you that your iPhone motherboard is damaged and needs replacement? Before you shell out for a costly replacement, try us out. In the occurrence of a defect in your iPhone motherboard, we have the option to repair it. However, every motherboard is model specific and not interchangeable, and it is not economically viable to replace the motherboard in specific devices as certain parts are linked to the motherboard. For example, the touch ID in iPhone 5S and later models, the battery in iPhone XR and later models, and the main camera in iPhone 12 and later models.

How long will it take?

Repair time will depend on the severity of the problem and how soon we can pinpoint the faulty component. Most iPhone motherboards are repaired within the first 24 hours, provided there is no previous repair attempt. Complex motherboard faults can take several days or longer.

We can resolve motherboard level repairs for most iPhone models. Our Repair Center is an ESD-protected state-of-the-art facility with highly skilled and experienced technicians.

Fixing an iPhone motherboard requires a unique skill set, technical know-how, and specialized tools and equipment for a successful repair. We believe in performing precision iPhone repair work like a neurosurgeon, which is essential while handling SMD components – surface-mounted devices. Unfortunately, most iPhone repair shops do not have the equipment or experience, resulting in failed repair attempts.

Most places handle iPhone motherboard repairs differently and usually utilize shortcuts to resolve issues. However, those issues come back. We believe in restoring your iPhone to its original state and therefore take the proper route in resolving every problem. We never compromise on the quality of parts we use and workmanship which comes at a cost. Hence, you may find our motherboard repair pricing to be on the higher side.

Motherboard repair is a complex and time-consuming process that requires patience and accuracy during the repair & troubleshooting process. We sometimes have to keep the device under observation before finalizing the repair. Ensuring a quality repair means being cautious of any express solutions or quick repair promises resulting in irreversible damage to your iPhone.

Can I get my iPhone fixed under warranty from Apple?

If you purchased your iPhone less than a year ago and there is no visible damage on your iPhone, you might be eligible to get your iPhone repaired under Apple Limited Warranty.

Not sure if your iPhone is under warranty? Check if you have an Apple Limited Warranty or Apple Care+ by entering the iPhone serial or IMEI number.

Common problems that are related to the motherboard:

IC* Integrated Circuit

WiFi/Bluetooth Module

The WiFi and Bluetooth are related to one component, which may fail or stop working due to liquid ingress, or when you drop your iPhone, or it can malfunction because of component failure.

Common symptoms:

Audio IC

The Audio IC is responsible for the control of the speaker and microphone and communicates the audio signals to the CPU for further processing. The audio failure is indicated when you are having troubles with some or all sound functions of your iPhone.

Common symptoms:

Touch IC

The Touch IC controls the capacitive touch in your iPhone, where the user’s touch inputs from the screen are relayed to the CPU.

Common symptoms:

LCD IC

Your iPhone LCD IC can be faulty if you can hear the sounds or incoming calls but cannot see anything on the screen.

Light IC

The Light IC in your iPhone might be faulty if the screen brightness is low or non-existent.

Nand IC

The Nand IC is the hard drive of your iPhone. All the data, applications, and software are stored in the Nand IC along with the iOS. Replacing the Nand IC involves restoring your iPhone, which results in data loss. Hence is recommended to backup your iPhone if possible. The Nand IC can be replaced with the same or greater storage capacity while maintaining the same serial/IMEI number.

Common symptoms:

Baseband IC

The Baseband IC is responsible for all phone and data communications over the mobile network. Therefore, phone calls and data can be impaired because of the baseband IC fault.

Common symptoms:

Battery Connector

If the battery connector on your iPhone motherboard is damaged, your iPhone will only function while on charge and restart in a few minutes.

Charging

The Charging IC or the USB IC is faulty if your iPhone can still not charge and the charging flex is functional.

Common symptoms:

The Power IC, also known as PMIC, is one of the main components in your iPhone motherboard. It is responsible for regulating, transferring, switching, step-up, and step-down the voltage from the battery across the motherboard. Power IC is robust and rarely fails. Most technicians end up with the wrong diagnosis when your iPhone motherboard heats up, concluding as PMIC failure where a connected part or component is cause for the PMIC heating up.

FAQ's

Here are some of the most common questions customers ask about iPhone motherboard repair.

Yes, the motherboard of an iPhone can be repaired. However, motherboard repairs are complex and time-consuming, requiring patience and technical expertise. Hence it is critical to find a reliable repair center specializing in chip-level repairs.

While Apple does not repair the iPhone motherboard but instead replaces the whole iPhone, which is not always economical. The price to fix your iPhone motherboard may vary from store to store and can cost anywhere between $70 to $300

Fixing your iPhone motherboard is cheaper than buying a new iPhone and good for the environment. However, suppose there are multiple problems with your iPhone and a faulty motherboard, and the repair cost exceeds the device value. In that case, we only recommend proceeding with the repair if your data is essential.

Over the years of fixing iPhones, we have identified three main reasons which cause iPhone motherboard to fail.

1: Physical Damage
Most users drop their iPhones from time to time. Even with an excellent protective cover, a fall’s impact affects the motherboard. The harder it falls, the more damage it does to the motherboard.

2: Water Damage
The problem of water-damaged iPhones is common since we carry these devices everywhere. The beach, pool, dining table, and kitchen can wreak havoc on an unwary iPhone when exposed to liquid. Liquid on the iPhone motherboard causes corrosion and oxidation resulting in the degradation of metals. Nothing good ever really comes of this. A circuit board corrodes just like a car rusts and eventually dies.

3: Component failure
No matter how careful you are while using your iPhone, component failure can come as a surprise. Several iPhone users have encountered this problem when the iPhone suddenly shuts off and no longer powers up. It mainly occurs when the iPhone is kept for overnight charging and does not power up in the morning.
