Can I fix my iPhone

So I believe that my iPhone battery fried because one day it was in my pocket and I took it out and the back was really hot. The phone would not turn on eventually it cool down and I charge it but it would turn off and on it connects to iTunes if I put it on recovery mode. It only turns on if I plug it in to the charger but the thing is it goes to the apple logo and then the screen goes black where you can tell that it on. Can a battery replacement fix this?

You could have a battery problem. The only way to know for sure is to try a new or preferably a known-good battery.

However, it sound more like you have a logic board or subsystem (camera/sensor etc.) problem. again, you need to rule out modular components first and when they have all been ruled out, then you can say for certain that it's a board issue.

Is this something that occurred suddenly, for no apparent reason or was it following some kind of event like a drop, coming into contact with water or repair attempt?

I would open up the phone and do a good visual inspection to see if anything is out of place or if you find evidence of water or other debris.

I would start by disconnecting all of the connectors except the battery, Dock and screen (LCD & Digitizer, do not connect the FCAM & Sensor). Plug in your phone and then check to see if the phone is more stable. If it is not, then you may have a defective screen, Dock or a Logic Board issue. If you want, you could try a new or known-good screen and Dock to eliminate the last variable.

If the bare-bones approach works, then add one flex at a time until the problem reappears and replace the defective component. I would start with the Home Button, Rear Camera, Volume & Power Button, Front Camera and Sensors.

Yes it recently fell in water I put it in rice and then everything was working fine which could have caused it to mess up. Thank you for your answer


Ahh...rice kills yet another phone. Sadly, you led astray by putting it in rice and allowing the water to slowly corrode your logic board. It may still be salvageable, check out my answer here: How to get pictures from dead iPhone 6?
