What Do We Know About iPhone X Series: iPhone xs, iPhone xr…?
Trying to keep up with all the new iPhone is proving to be very difficult. All new iPhone models including iPhone X, XR, XS and XS max are forcing the third-party repair industry re-learn proven repair techniques.
The most unreliable part is the absence of original parts from the manufacturer when repairing. Even as the “Right to Repair” movement is growing. Apple and every other manufacturer refuses to allow the public the ability to purchase original parts to repair their devices.
China is the leading manufacture of after market replacement parts for almost all electronic devices. It is the only other alternative than using genuine parts. Say what you want about stealing corporate secrets being illegal and immoral. But without it every person who owns an apple device would need to go to a genius bar to have it serviced. If that were the case would Apple still be this popular?
It’s bad enough when you do have to go to the genius bar, without third-party repair options it would be impossible. The availability of aftermarket parts has helped Apple devices stay in circulation longer. So, in theory, the more of your product is the marketplace the more popular it becomes.
2019 iPhones; iPhone xs, xr…
As the aftermarket replacement parts become more stable, getting the device repaired outside the genius bar is possible. Usually taking about six months the aftermarket parts become affordable and compete with Apples repair rates. It will take about one year for most of the defects that many aftermarket parts possess to get addressed and corrected.
It doesn’t help when Apple includes something in an iOS update that causes aftermarket parts to dis-function. If you’ve owned an iPhone since the four series and had it repaired by a third-party you know what this means.
The new design of the iPhone x series has caused a re-education of the repair industry. The absence of the home button, and the new facial recognition, and a redesigned logic board are all features that are different than before.
As third-party technicians learn how to make these repairs many are learning that Apple is trying harder than ever to make the repair more difficult. Many are turning to reliable companies that do tear downs and explain how each device is built and what are easy mistakes to make. As these devices become more and more expensive you must have knowledge of the device before you attempt the repair.
iPhone XR and iPhone XS Which one’s right for you?
The new iPhone X has four different models and sizes to choose from. The iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone XS
and iPhone Xs Max are all models that use a “button less” home button instead of the traditional round
button. Another feature that is common among all of the new models is the face ID. There are a lot of differences between all of them but the front “selfie” camera is the same on all four.
The iPhone X series all come with a super retina HD display, which is really an OLED display. The iPhone XR still uses the liquid retina HD display, or a LCD and is cheaper than the other three. Screen size is the same for the iPhone X and iPhone XS at 5.8”, the iPhone XR is 6.1” and the iPhone Xs Max is 6.5”.
The actual measurements are in line with the screen size but the depth is different on the XR. OLED displays are thinner than LCD because of the absence of a back light so the iPhone X, iPhone XS, Xs Max

Where can I get my iPhone X repaired near me?
I just moved to Boca Raton, FL to start school at FAU and I dropped my iPhone X and broke the
screen. The apple store wants way too much money to fix it so I need another place that’s
cheaper but reliable. I heard that it costs more to fix this iPhone x screen because the LCD is more
expensive than previous iPhone LCD’s. I asked my techie friend why this was and this is what
she told me.
Can an iPhone X screen be replaced?
To repair the iPhone X screen you need to make an important decision about what type of
screen you want to use. For the iPhone X, apple finally upgraded to an Oled screen or an
organic light emitting display. Up until now, every iPhone was created using an LCD or a liquid
crystal display. The popularity of the LCD has made them very affordable and are used in almost
every “display” The biggest difference between the LCD and Oled is how they create light.
The iPhone X Oled screen emits its own light and doesn’t need a back light like the previous
iPhones that used a LCD. This offers many advantages to the new iPhone X screen, number one
being power consumption. The energy it take to generate light using an Oled is much less than
what it takes to power a backlight. The absence of the backlight means the Oled is thinner than
the older LCD. And finally the contrast is better which creates warmer images. The new iPhones
will all be Oled eventually.
How much is it to replace an iPhone X?
The cost to make Oleds is cheaper than it does to make LCDs. The iPhone X repair price
is already beginning to drop as more third market screens are produced. But before you start
jumping for joy there is a catch.
The drawback to the iPhone X screen and every Oled screen it longevity. Lcd’s last much
longer than Oleds, about twice as long. The average lifespan of an Oled is 14,000 hours, at 10
hours of use per day, that’s about four years. If you’ve been paying attention lately this should
not surprise you. Ever since the release of the iPhone 6 and coincidently after Steve Jobs
passed, Apple has decided to put profit in front of quality. The iPhone X will start to fail
sooner than its predecessors and that fine with Apple. They want you to go out and purchase a
brand new device faster than before and the iPhone X is living proof of that.
