Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max was designed to be difficult to repair

If we buy a high-end Android or Apple mobile, we will spend good money on them. After one of these smartphones, the least we want is to break and have to be repaired, especially knowing how expensive these operations can be on Apple. Now a YouTuber has tried to repair the iPhone 14 Pro Max, only to find out that fixing it is almost impossible.

Buying a smartphone such as the Galaxy S23 or the iPhone 14 Pro is a high-end purchase that costs more than 1000 coins. So imagine that we download it shortly after that and the screen breaks or the ball starts giving errors. Here we have to find out if the brands offer us a guarantee, although in the case of Samsung and at least in the Galaxy Z we have to pay large sums of money. Two months ago we saw that the repairs of these mobiles cost more than 500 coins. In the case of Apple it is a similar thing, it will be expensive for us.

They are trying to disassemble the iPhone 14 Pro Max and it is really difficult

If you want to repair the screen of the iPhone 14 Pro Max according to Apple’s website, this involves a payment of 489 euros, unless we have an AppleCare policy + coverage. This does not come as a surprise, since any iPhone repair has always been quite expensive. Fortunately, Apple has ended up launching its repair service in several countries around the world, including Europe. In these we had the opportunity to acquire original tools and parts to do our own repair.

In this case, we must now see how a YouTuber named Hugh Jeffreys tried to repair a damaged iPhone 14 Pro Max. This glass was broken after the fall and the screen had also suffered damage. The mobile worked fine, but it was not good to use it in that way and because of this it recalled the whole disassemble process, indicating that it was hell. It can be said that the easiest part was to remove the screen, but everything from there became more complicated.

The repair process cost him 4 and a half hours

When iFixit published its review of the iPhone 14, it ended up giving it a 7/10 in terms of repairability. However, the finished Pro and Pro Max models are supposed to be more complex to rebuild, as indicated in their article. The problem is that the people at iFixit make it easy when they are experts, but when it comes to their steps, Hugo is not so experienced. It took him some time to disconnect the ball if he wanted to replace it. In addition, it shows how Apple made the decision to use screws of different variants.

This YouTuber mentioned how easy it is to lose these screws or fly away in a sneeze. This places the need to use a magnetic tray where you can have them without losing them. After having disassembled the entire iPhone 14 Pro with difficulty, the worst moment has come, that of reassembling and remembering where everything went. In the end, Hugh claimed it took him 4.5 hours to complete the entire process. In the end, he was saved about 350 euros compared to what Apple asked for the repair, but he claims that, although it is successfully carried out, the iOS operating system throws errors.
