More Details – How much to replace iPhone battery?
Modern lithium ion batteries are brilliant. They’re energy-dense, charge quickly, and rarely explode. However, they’re not perfect by a long shot. Unfortunately, modern smartphones such as the latest iPhones don’t have everlasting batteries. So if your iPhone battery has given up the ghost, is it worth the hassle and expense of replacing it and getting a new one installed?
It’s probably worth taking a minute to talk about when a battery needs replacement. With each charge cycle, lithium batteries begin to lose some part of their original capacity. At some point, this can progress to the extent that your device doesn’t last long enough to be of practical use. Lithium ion batteries also lose some of their ability to provide peak voltage and power. This is why Apple throttles iPhones with poor battery health, to prevent shutdowns that result from a battery that can’t output enough power. In either case, putting a brand-new battery into your phone is an option. Give us a call and we can tell you exactly how much to replace iPhone battery you have now.

The touchscreen is your primary means of control over your iPhone, and if it doesn’t work, your phone doesn’t work. However, while an unresponsive touchscreen — any touchscreen that either doesn’t respond at all to your taps or that responds only occasionally — can be frustrating and alarming, there are a number of simple fixes you can try to get it up and running again.
The first thing to try should be obvious: Restart your iPhone. Of course, you may find that your touchscreen is so unresponsive that you can’t even shut your iPhone down normally. In this case, try a force restart.
Check your screen protector
Screen protectors are usually very thin these days, but in certain rare cases, they may be the reason why your iPhone touchscreen isn’t working. As such, you should check to see whether your screen protector has been applied properly to your iPhone’s touchscreen. If it hasn’t, try removing and reapplying it or reapplying a new protector if you have one available. ClickAway can do this for you as well.
Try updating your phone
Assuming that you’ve tried the two steps above and your iPhone touchscreen still isn’t responding, you should next try updating your iPhone by connecting it to your computer. You won’t be able to update it normally (due to the unresponsive touchscreen) and will instead have to put it into Recovery Mode before updating.
Factory reset iPhone
Updating your iPhone should resolve any software-related issues that may be causing your iPhone’s touchscreen to freeze. However, if it still doesn’t work, it may possibly be worth performing a factory reset on your iPhone.
