Reviving My Dead iPhone SE

  • Published on Oct 20, 2018
  • After a few months of siting on my display shelf, my iPhone SE was not longer powering on or charging. At first I though the issue was board level. But after some troubleshooting I was able to revive the iPhone back to functional condition.
    Unfortunately I am still getting battery drain, (around 30% overnight) I am lead to believe it could be the dock connector as I have had similar issue before on an iPhone 4s and the SE is also not connecting to my Mac. (Will post an update here in the future when I order and test a new dock connector)
    But at least iPhone is turning on again!

      It's like anything that has a rechargeable battery. Charge it now and then and it will stay alive

    I would never plug any phone in to a charging stand that uses the charging plug as the means of standing the device.

    I had the same battery issue where after I switched my iPhone on the indicator showed 10% and it just would not charge. Prior to this happening the battery indicator showed 86% before I switched it off the day before. Needless to say I thought I would have to replace the battery so just switched my device off. Later in the day I switched my phone back on and the whole issue of low voltage and refusing to charge resolved itself. Magic 😊

    Android user here .... they release a full screen front SE style and size iPhone I’m switching.
    Where do you get your parts? Thinking of getting a renewed iPhone cheap and refurbishing it to new myself.
