If you would like to lengthen your iPhone battery life and lifespan, here are the general tips from Apple:

  1. Always update your Apple software to the latest version. Latest iOS 9.3.1 include advanced energy saving technology. When your battery charge drops below 20%, iPhone will prompt the user to switch to battery saving mode.
  2. Avoid extreme ambient temperatures. Device performs the best in temperature range from 16° to 22°C). Exposing your phone on temperate above 35°C will damage your battery capacity. Also, charging the device in high temperature can further damage it. Using the device under a very cold environment will get a obvious decrease in battery life.
  3. If you plan to store your device for longer than 6 months, charge it to 50% every 6 months
  4. Adjust your screen brightness or dim the screen to extend the battery life.
  5. Use Wi-Fi whenever possible since it consumes less power than a cellular network.
  6. To improve your iPhone battery life, monitor your background activity and increase the fetch interval if your Mail or Calendar app is running in the background.
  7. Turn off location services in Settings > Privacy > Location Services in order to save iPhone battery life
  8. Turn off push notification in order to minimise the phone display being wake up when lock screen is displayed

iPhone SE finally released at the end of March 2016 and everybody will get surprise why the new family member is such bargaining, although it equips similar iPhone 6S features. According to the teardown from Chipworks, we may get the answer. From the teardown, we discover some known iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 chipsets. 
According to the teardown pictures from Chipworks, we can find that both iPhone SE and iPhone 6S adopt A9 processor with serial number APL1022 and date code 1604 hinted that it is come out from January. About the DRAM, both phone models use SK Hynix 2GB LPDDR4 RAM but the date code 1535 hinted that they come out from last year August and September 2015. iPhone SE adopts older 19nm memory, although both are Toshiba 16GB and we suspect this is one of the clearance components.
Regarding to the iPhone SE LCD Screen Assembly, the digitiser control component we observed from the teardown is Broadcom BCM5976 and Texas Instrument 343S0645, which is same as iPhone 5S. SE adopts Qualcomm MDM9625M and WTR1625L Modem and RF receiver. Components which are same as iPhone 6S are 338S00105 and SS8S1285 (Sound control), NXP 66V10 (NFC). The only new component is 338S00170 which is a power management IC.

As a result, we can deduce that the come out of iPhone SE is to clear the overstocks of partial old components and that is why the price is such bargaining.

Error 53 denotes a hardware issue that suspends the software update or restore from completion. Your iPhone device is bricked if anybody try to replace their Touch ID modules or Home buttons with authorised parts.


This is because every Home button is uniquely paired with a Touch ID sensor based on encoded serial numbers based on hardware. This check ensures your iPhone and iOS features remain secure and prevent any malicious Touch ID sensor can gaining access to any secure information. According to Apple, this security measure is necessary to protect your device and prevent any fraudulent sensor from being used.


However, law firm from Seattle may bring a class action suit against Apple over “Error 53”, said the British paper. “A person who without lawful excuse destroys or damages any property belonging to another intending to destroy or damage any such property or being reckless as to whether any such property would be destroyed or damaged should be guilty of an offence,” states the law.


Next time, when your iPhone is busted and you are going to change the LCD screen assembly, please pay attention not to replace your Home button or touch ID with any unauthorised components.

Somebody may encounter black screen or blank screen after iPhone 5 LCD screen get replaced. Everything is fine, phone vibrates when connected to iTunes. There may be three possible reasons:

You broke the flex cable during the installation.
The metal bare connections around the flex cable can ’short-out’ the screen. Cover with Kapton tape to avoid any ‘short-out’.
Your replacement assembly does work but you have trouble on the backlight. Check if you still be able to see the logo with enough light by holding your phone under a lamp. If so, check the back light filters FL2025, FL2024 and FL2026 and replace it if you find any sign of damage. you can find them out around display connector near BS2503
