Error 53 iPhone SE
Hello there, I have an iPhone SE here. Sadly about 6 months ago I dropped the poor thing in the sink. I did the normal stuff like put in Rice, while heating it at 60c for a night. It came back to life after a couple days and it worked great for about 6 months. Except that it would refuse to update to 9.3.3 (latest at the time) via the software update option. I was too lazy to try it via iTunes so I left it.
Well a week ago I mustered up the courage to do it via iTunes and well, it uploaded the software and all worked until the very end when iTunes gave me the 53 error.
Sadly I just opened it a bit to see if the water stickers were tripped and sadly they are so Warranty is out of the question. The Touch ID worked 100% the whole time never gave me errors. As I write this I reseated the Touch ID cable to see if maybe it had an intermittent connection. If that doesn't work I'm out of ideas.
Any suggestions and PS: I work full time repairing smartphones but this one is my personal phone.
Is this a good question?
