No security or safety issues prevent you from installing an iPhone 8 plus with ambient light function on an Apple-original screen, however. What remains a problem however is Apple’s updates which could potentially brick your phone if a third party repair shop fixed it.
Hold down the Home button
Apple (AAPL) recently unveiled their latest and greatest high-end smartphone: the iPhone 8 Plus. Boasting dual 12-megapixel rear cameras and a 5.5-inch Retina HD display with a million-to-one contrast ratio, Face ID technology is included along with faster processor speeds than its predecessor and wireless charging support.
Not without its issues, however. Many users have reported issues with the home button not responding correctly or being accidentally activated; this can be very irritating and distressful; however there are simple solutions available to overcome such difficulties.
One way to address the issue is to disable Siri from being activated from pressing and holding the Home button, by accessing Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Home Button in iOS settings. This will prevent Siri from activating whenever someone presses and holds down on it. As another solution, turn off “Rest Finger to Unlock” feature via Settings -> General -> Accessibility – Home Button – Rest Finger to Unlock feature in iOS settings.
Resetting your phone may also help restore original settings and may address some of your problems, using either an app or your Apple ID password to do it. An alternative option would be bringing it directly to iClinique for repair – liquid damage can be especially expensive due to electric current oxidizing motherboard components or short circuiting; therefore it is advised that you bring your iPhone as soon as possible for repair at our clinics.
Hold down the Sleep/Wake button
The iPhone X, 8 Plus and 9 come equipped without the familiar Home button; instead, this button has been replaced by the “Side” button, which still double-clicks to activate Apple Pay or initiate Animoji Karaoke – a smartphone art form which has spread virally across Twitter (search #animojikaraoke for examples).
The Side button features an Emergency SOS feature. If pressed, pressing this button will initiate an auto dial of 911 and notify emergency contacts while also showing an SOS slider prompt for assistance.
Pressing and holding the Side button until an iTunes logo with data cable icon appears can also enter recovery mode and allow for easy restore or upgrade options via iTunes.
Hold down the Volume Down button
One of the most frustrating symptoms of a broken iPhone can be its inoperable power button, creating both inconvenience and potential danger if used while driving. We can easily remedy this situation with a hard reset solution.
Use this technique with any model of iPhone 8 plus, but please be aware that charging may take up to an hour before turning back on again. Moreover, make sure your device is fully charged with an active Wi-Fi connection before beginning this procedure.
This method can revive an unresponsive iPhone that won’t respond to Home or Sleep/Wake buttons, as well as restore it back to a factory default state. In order to use this approach, connect the phone to a computer running iTunes with iOS installed before beginning this procedure. Also be sure to download and install iOS for PC before trying this out yourself!
Process is straightforward: press and hold both Home buttons simultaneously until you see an Apple logo appear. If your device doesn’t turn on correctly, try charging for at least an hour prior to reaching out for assistance; alternatively you could visit a local repair shop for assistance as well.
If your iPhone has been dropped, the screen may become cracked or display dead pixels. Other issues could include non-responsive volume buttons and touchscreens not responding to touch. If water has spilled onto it during its drop, be wary before trying to restart as this can lead to corrosion and short circuiting of motherboard components causing it not to start up properly again.
If your iPhone is showing an “Item is Disabled” error message, the Two Touch IC could be responsible. It provides proximity sensing functionality which turns on displays when they come close to faces and off when moved away. In some instances, you may be able to correct this by applying pressure with paper or heating it with an iron; but in more serious cases replacing may be required.
Press the Power button
The iPhone 8 Plus offers consumers many benefits. Its screen is larger and sharper than that of its predecessor; bezels have been reduced, enabling one-handed operation; its design looks fantastic, as does its robust build quality; bezels have also been made thinner to allow one-hand usage more comfortably; its bezels are thinner; it feels solid in your hand due to hefty build quality. The power and volume buttons on this device are easy to use; they don’t wiggle at all when being pressed. Furthermore, its A11 Bionic chip processes information much more rapidly than prior models. As with all Apple products however, this one may suffer from hardware or software issues. Home buttons that are non-responsive are one of the most frustrating issues for users, but fortunately there are workarounds that can be used to fix this problem. One such method is Assistive Touch which enables virtual usage of your home button; however this approach is risky due to potential failure or damage of the touchscreen itself. An alternative solution would be visiting a repair centre who offer affordable Home button replacement options.
Keep in mind when repairing an iPhone that it is both delicate and expensive equipment, so only use certified parts to avoid future complications. Also, for optimal results take it directly to an authorized service provider like Apple who will ensure a quality repair.
If your phone won’t power on or displays a white screen, it is most likely due to an issue with its motherboard rather than home button. You may try pressing with paper or heating the IC on it (in order to melt solder underneath). Resetting it to factory settings might also help.
Apple’s clever strategy to maintain their monopoly in repair services involves restricting original screens solely to their stores and then issuing updates that will brick your device if you obtain replacement from any third-party vendor.
