Gyrosensor and compass-app doesn't work

The Gyrosensor of my Iphone 6 doesn't work correctly since 3 weeks and the batterie needs to recharge every few hours.

I haven't update any app or software in the time or bevor the phone shows this faults.

1 Year Apple Garantie is ended in April.

Is here anyone who can give me an advice, what I can do on my own.

I have started Iphone multiple times, have checked it by apple chatsupport, Gyrosensor is definitly broken.

Could it be, that both faults based on moisture contact?

Can I repair Iphone on my own?

Please help!

Der Gyrosensor meines Iphone 6 funktioniert seit 3 Wochen nicht mehr richtig und der Akku braucht bereits nach wenigen Std. eine Aufladung.

Ich habe keine App oder Softwareaktualisierung in dieser Zeit durchgeführt.

Die Herstellergarantie ist seit April abgelaufen.

Ist hier irgendjemand, der mir Hilfestellung/Tipps geben kann, wie ich das selbst reparieren kann?

Ich habe das Iphone mehrfach neu gestartet und auch vom Apple-Chatsupport online checken lassen. Der Gyrosensor ist definitiv defekt.

Kann es sein, dass beide Fehler durch Feuchtigkeitskontakt entstanden sind?

Kann ich das Iphone selbst wieder instandsetzen?

Bitte helft mir!

Without seeing the phone, I can only venture a guess. It does sound like water or some other physical damage. However, it very well could be a software problem and I prefer to start with the simple things. If it were me, these would be the steps I would take:

1. Reinstall iOS via iTunes. Don't do a restore, do a new install. If that doesn't fix the problem:

2. Take off the display and check for any chipped ICs or water damage. iFixit has a great video on youtube regarding water damage and what to look for. If it is a chipped IC, then you get to learn how to solder! If its water damage, you can try to follow the advice on iFixit's youtube video but normally the only thing you can do with a water damaged phone is data recovery.

Good luck.
