U2 IC for iPhone 5C replacement

History

Hi Guys,

Last few days my iphone 5C is acting weird, Its getting hot, Its charging very slow and draining the whole battery in 90 minutes on standby. First few days it was not draining that fast but as mention above now its draining very fast.

I searched many forums and tried many things like deleting exchange, restoring and switching off SIRI but to no vale but one of the person mention that he changed the U2 IC and this resolved the issue. He was very clear that he used non certified iphone charging cable (Which is normal because Iphone battery is not excellent that it last long and you have to get it charge many times and sometimes you do it at your friend house and end up using non certified cable). I did the same and also i find out that IOS 7 + recognize the non certified cable straight away and it is damaging the U2 IC.

Now my questions.

1. What do you think about the issue? You think it is U2 IC problem?

2. I am trying to buy U2 IC but i am not able to find for 5C instead everyone is selling for 5 and 5S. So can we use a 5 or 5S IC for 5C? If not

3. Can you tell me the part name or number for this U2 IC for iphone 5C and the place i can get it from.

Last question is that is it easy to repair the U2 IC. In my country we do not have excellent repair shops and i already check with Apple retailer and they said that they cannot repair this. I still have water damage IPHONE 4S sitting idol in my table where i could not get the power IC changed because no one was able to change it in my city.

By the way i am in Saudi Arabia.

Hi,

I am pretty sure Cyberdoc LLC does BGA repair. They have some excellent videos of reballing without a stencil of some other ICs, so you might want to try contacting them:

Here's a video of their work in case you're interested:

Filip (from the video) lives in Moldova--but he would definitely have the skills to do it.

jessabethany,

Wow, really? This circuit board repair community must be small if one of the only options is in Moldova haha. By the way, Jessabethany, I was looking at your work on iPhone circuit boards and gotta say, I'm impressed. I'm also getting into these types of repairs but am still a ways off from your level. Keep up the good work though!

Jack ,

cool--is this your work? Did you use hot air or IR to put the chip back on? I'd love to train someone on U2 replacement and it would be great to know more about your experience here.
