DON’T JUNK IT, FIX IT--AND SAVE A FORTUNE!

The only reference & tutorial of its kind--in full color!

Fix your own iPhone, iPad, or iPod with secret repair knowledge Apple doesn’t want you to have! This groundbreaking, full-color book shows you how to resurrect expensive Apple mobile iDevices you thought were dead for good, and save a fortune.

Apple Certified Repair Technician Timothy L. Warner demystifies everything about iDevice repair, presenting simple, step-by-step procedures and hundreds of crisp, detailed, full-color photos.

He’ll walk you through safely taking apart your iDevice, replacing what’s broken, and reliably reassembling it. You’ll learn where to get the tools and exactly how to use them. Warner even reveals sources for broken Apple devices you can fix at low cost--for yourself, or even for resale!

Replace All These iDevice Components:

•  Battery

•  Display

•  SIM card

•  Logic board

•  Dock connector

Take Apart, Fix, and Reassemble:

•  iPod nano (5th & 7th Gen)

•  iPod touch (4th & 5th Gen)

•  iPhone (3GS, 4, 4S, & 5)

•  iPad (iPad 2, iPad 4th Gen, & iPad mini)

Fix Common Software-Related Failures:

•  Emergency data recovery

•  Jailbreaking

•  Carrier unlocking

Do What Apple Never Intended:

•  Resurrect a waterlogged iDevice

•  Prepare an iDevice for resale

•  Install non-Apple Store apps

•  Perform out-of-warranty repairs

All technical content reviewed & approved by iFixit, world leader in iDevice parts, tools, and repair tutorials!

Synopsis:

Most iOS device troubleshooting books focus on software; for instance, how to restore apps or system software by using iTunes. By contrast, this title focuses principally on iDevice hardware. This subject, until now, has remained a “black box” to everyone but authorized Apple service technicians. While most of us love all things Apple and would rather fling ourselves from a rooftop than part ways with our iPods, iPhones, and iPads, we also understand that Apple devices are expensive to purchase and once "dead" are brutally cost-restrictive to replace. That is, unless you have the know-how to perform a do-it-yourself (DIY) repair!

 

This book serves both as a technical reference as well as a tutorial. The Unauthorized Guide to iPhone, iPad, and iPod Repair contains dozens of full-color, crisply detailed images that demonstrate in user-friendly terms how iDevice teardown and parts replacement works. Tim Warner explains exactly which tools are needed to repair iDevices, and he points readers to reputable sources from whom readers can purchase these tools. The book also teaches readers where they can go in person or online to harvest old and supposedly broken iDevices, which they can turn into functional units for personal use or for resale.

 

The technical content in The Unauthorized Guide to iPhone, iPad, and iPod Repair is guaranteed by iFixit, a world-leader in providing the public with iDevice parts, tools, and repair tutorials.
