Why does this keep happening? A tale of a broken iPhone 7

Donna called us today while in possession of a broken iPhone 7 screen in Dubai. This broken iPhone became broken this past weekend when she was out with friends walking in Dubai Mall. When she reached into her purse to grab her wallet, the iPhone 7 came flying out and landed hard on the concrete floor. The result you can see in the photo.

Like many times before, Donna was not happy with the cracks now running through her iPhone 7 screen. It was not fun to look at and not fun to run your fingers over. She is well aware of easily these iPhone screens break and always tries her best not to put her iPhones in jeopardy. Today, sadly, the concrete got the best of it.

Having had broken iPhones screens in Dubai before, she knew exactly who to called. She even had us as a contact on her phone. A quick ring to the awesome folks at iRepairUAE, Donna had an appointment lined up for later that afternoon. We met Donna at the usual spot – the coffee shop at the foot of her office building. Within a half an hour, we had her screen look like new again. Better luck this time around, Donna! Be careful out there!

A car ran over my iPhone. Can you help?

Walking around with a broken iPhone in Dubai is never a fun time. Knowing that that broken iPhone was the result of a car running it over is doubly never a fun time. Such was the case with Kevin this week. Having accidentally dropped his new iPhone while getting out of his car and then not noticing it was missing until 20 minutes later, Kevin walked back to where he thought he may have lost it. Sure enough, it was there. Several meters away from the driver side door of his car. Sadly, it looked a lot different from when he last saw it. A car, or two, or three probably ran over it leaving it looking like the picture above. It was cracked, to say the least. And Kevin was devastated. He had only owned this iPhone for a few weeks and was now looking at an iPhone that appeared to have dropped from the top of Burj Khalifa. Kevin needed a screen repair Dubai.

He was not happy at himself. How could he have done such a thing. Miraculously it still turned on. There appeared to be some glimmer of hope for his poor iPhone. He wondered if it would be possible to save. When he returned to his office he began looking for companies in Dubai or Abu Dhabi that could repair a broken iPhone screen. Are there even companies that fix cracked iPhones in the UAE? Is there an iPhone repair service that he could call to have a look? Sure enough, there was. He did a quick Google search and stumbled upon us at iRepairUAE. We answered his call and were happy to have a look at his badly damaged iPhone. After about 30 minutes, we had his iPhone back to normal equipped with a new screen. Now no one will ever have to know that it was run over by a few cars.

Our most recent client was just passing through Dubai on her way back to English. Sharon thought her iPad protector would help avoid a cracked screen from a fall. Sadly she learned she was mistaken when last week her iPad took a tumble down to the marble floor. The result you can see in the picture. She was left with a cracked iPad screen and was in need of getting it fixed before getting on the airplane home. Fortunately she had a few days in Dubai and went searching for a repair service that could fix her iPad. After a quick internet search, she stumbled upon us and gave us a call.

These iPhone Breaks Keep Breaking My Heart 💔

These iPhone Breaks Keep Breaking My Heart 💔

For Kim, this is her third time breaking her iPhone 6S screen in Dubai. Each time she has dropped her iPhone 6S only to pick it up with a broken screen has broken her heart. It is a devastating experience dropping and cracking the screen on your iPhone. Friends have done it. Family members have done it. Coworkers have done it. Yet, when you are the victim of a fallen iPhone, it tends to sting a lot harder.

Kim gave us a call the other day in tears. After reaching in her purse to retrieve her iPhone when she heard it ringing, the edge of the phone must have caught one of the corners of her purse and caused her to drop the phone down to the concrete ground. Over a meter in the air when she lost a handle on it, the iPhone 6S garnered enough speed to send ripples through the glass screen, shattering everything in its path. The result you can see in the picture. There are several cracks close to the home button. The back screen was completely damaged. She could no longer see anything or use the phone at all. She had broken both screens on her iPhone 6S and didn’t know what to do with herself.

She made it up without too much trouble and was lucky enough to have a working laptop on her desk. She quickly began looking for cell phone repair services in Dubai and Abu Dhabi that could repair her broken iPhone and her broken heart. Within minutes, she had us on the phone and scheduling an appointment with her for later in the day. We met with Kim and fixed the broken screen on her iPhone 6S. She was relieved and is on her way to a full recovery, hoping never to drop her screen again.

How many drops does it take to finally break the screen on an iPhone. Steve, unfortunately, was the one who had to find out the hard way. Having been in possession of his iPhone 5C for all of three days, without accumulating any drops, he finally figured out that it takes just one drop to cracked the screen on his iPhone. No fun!

As you can see from the picture above, the result pretty much destroyed the entire phone. He couldn’t text. He couldn’t call. He couldn’t let his friends know that he was going to be out of commission for a short while. The drop/crack/destroyed iPhone happened when he was getting out of his car before work yesterday morning. The iPhone had been resting on his lap when he pulled into his usual spot. After turning off the ignition and grabbing his mug of coffee, the first step out the door caused his iPhone to go crashing to the ground – completely rendering the iPhone useless.

Disheartened, he walked through the company doors and up the elevator. Once he reached his desk he began looking for iPhone repair services in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. After just a few minutes, he came across iRepairUAE and was refreshingly surprised to find that we have an on-demand service that comes to our customers and repairs iPhone right on the spot. A few clicks away, Steve had set up an appointment with us and was able to get his iPhone back in working order before the end of the day. He was delighted by our service and was even more delighted by the fact that no one would have to know he had broken his broken. Disclaimer: In writing this post, we used a different name so “Steve” wouldn’t be called out and embarrassed by his friends. Happy we could help, “Steve”!
