Does the water damage service include water sensor replacement?

The water damage service covers the cost to put your logic board through our liquid cleaning process. If additional parts are required to complete the repair we will call you with an estimate before proceeding with installation.

Does the water damage service include logic board replacement?

The logic board is the most expensive component in the phone. If the logic board has been irreversibly damaged we will refund you for the Liquid Cleaning, minus the cost of the return shipping.

What should I do if I drop my device in liquid?

Turn off the device – the moisture can cause permanent damage to the logic board if the device is on. Place your device inside a sealed sandwich bag so the moisture doesn’t  evaporate and cause oxidization on the logic board. Send your device in for our liquid cleaning service. We will remove all moisture from your device before powering it on. This significantly increases your chances of a successful liquid cleaning. Do not attempt to charge or turn on the device.

My device was water damaged and now everything seems to work fine except for one function, do I still need the full water damage service?

Sometimes symptoms will appears days after the device was initially liquid damaged. We recommend you have the liquid cleaning done to ensure your device doesn’t have potentially dangerous residual liquid on your logic board.

How long does the water damage repair generally take?

The water damage repair takes between 24 and 72 hours to complete depending on how much liquid got inside the device. This estimate can vary depending on the extent of the damage to the logic board and other components.

Do you offer a warranty with water damage service?

Our water damage repair service includes a 90-day warranty so if you experience any issues caused by the initial water damage within 90-days, you are covered. The warranty does not include any subsequent damages or cover any future liquid damage.

After dropping my phone it has become unresponsive to touch, does the glass repair fix this issue?

No, any non responsiveness your phone is suffering due to a drop will not be corrected by replacing just the glass. You will need to select the “Damaged LCD / Damaged Digitizer”Option.

How do I know if I need a new LCD or not?

If you have any marks, dead pixels or dust underneath the broken glass of your screen assembly you will need to have the LCD replaced. You are welcome to send us a picture of the device and we will do our best to give you an accurate diagnostic. Multi-colored lines, and patches of black liquid are common symptoms of a damaged LCD panel.

The glass on my iPhone is completely destroyed and is falling off, is the glass replacement service all I need?

We the extent of the damage to the glass is irrelevant as long as the LCD panel is working and the digitizer is responsive.

Are your parts Original Apple or OEM?

Apple Inc. does not manufacture any parts. They are a design and engineering company. The parts Apple uses in the iPhone are bought from various Chinese vendors and assembled in China. Many of the parts we use come from the similar vendors in China. We believe in transparency and cannot claim that our parts are “from Apple” or “Original”. The parts we use are manufactured to the same strict OEM specifications and we are often unable to tell the difference.
