Where is the moisture indicator in the iPhone 4 and 4S?
These are the only models from all considered today that have as many as two indicators! Apparently, to find out for sure whether the liquid got in or not. They are located:
In the headphone jack.
- In the charging port.
Note that there is a very cleverly built indicator in the headphone jack. Considering the fact that the iPhone 4 and 4S have a connector located at the top of the device, any conversation in the rain and any crazy (but accurate!) Drop of this rain can become the basis for canceling your device’s warranty.
And the indicator in the charging connector is also not a good idea. After all, a little moisture can easily get there, but this never means that the whole device was bathed. In the next generations of the iPhone, this moment was thought out
The location of the water intrusion sensor in the iPhone 5 (S, C, SE)
Do you think that the situation with rain in the previous paragraph is all an invention of the author? Then give another explanation that:
Starting with iPhone 5, the headphone jack has been moved to the bottom of the device.
- And at the same time, the liquid penetration sensor was removed from it.
I can’t find any other logical explanation. Well, okay, removed and removed. The main thing was left at least one and, apparently for the reliability of determining the drowned, they transferred it to the SIM card tray directly inside the case.
Now, to determine whether the device was immersed in liquid or not, you need to pull out the SIM card tray. And already behind it we see a white or red indicator.
Iphone drowned or not? Why know and prepare
Why do you need to know where the water intrusion sensor is located in the iPhone?
Before going to the service center, so as not to run there in vain. Since the drowned will be denied warranty service.
- Before buying a used iPhone (how to do it right?). Although, as readers tell in the comments, when buying a new one, you can face various problems.
- Just for curiosity. For example, I was never interested in what kind of moisture sensor it is and where it is located on my iPhone. And while writing the article, I was interested enough how he is doing there?
A few more important notes:
According to the specifications, the sensor will only be triggered by direct contact with water. Any vapors, condensation and other phenomena should not affect it. In practice, I can only confirm this. Bath, bath, steam, nothing made him react on my iPhone.
- The normal color of the indicator is white or silver, any deviation (reddish, slightly colored, barely red) means that contact with the liquid was.
- You may need a magnifying glass and a flashlight to see everything closely.
Well, now let’s get down to business and consider the location of the moisture sensor in each iPhone model. We will not touch the earliest Apple smartphones, let’s start with 4 and 4S, they are still quite common and can be found on sale.
Where is the liquid contact indicator on the iPhone 8 (Plus)?
Since the iPhone 8 is actually the direct successor to the iPhone 7, its moisture indicator is located exactly in the same place. We take out the SIM card tray, if necessary, arm ourselves with a tool (flashlight or magnifying glass) and look.
Do we see the sensor colored red? All badly given iPhone 8, with a high degree of probability, is a drowned man.
Does the iPhone 7 (Plus) have a liquid contact sensor and where is it??
Apple has added IP67 water protection to the iPhone 7, but this in no way means that it is completely protected from moisture. Over, this still serves as the basis for denying warranty service.
How does the company know that water has entered the device? Yes, all the same, because the liquid indicator will turn red. It is located in the same place as in previous models behind the SIM card tray.
True, its appearance has changed again, now the band has become twice as large as in the iPhone 6S. For me, again, a mystery why? Any ideas I’m waiting in the comments.
Where is the indicator for liquid in the iPhone overview of all models!
Hello! What is the first thing they look at in the service center when you bring your iPhone there under warranty? It is correct whether this warranty applies to your device. And in the second? Externally damaged (not broken?) And whether it has been exposed to water, as this is an excellent reason to refuse your warranty service. The latter will be discussed today.
Almost every device (iPhone is no exception) has a so-called liquid contact indicator. If we exaggerate greatly, then this is an ordinary piece of paper that changes its color (once and for all) when any liquid gets on it. Thanks to her, you can always figure out whether the device is a drowned man or vice versa, it has never been touched by water.
The article turned out to be large (still, after all, absolutely all iPhone models starting from the fourth were considered), so the table of contents:
Is the lock code known?
If you know the lock code, you can do almost anything with the device. Enable and unlock at any time. Change Apple ID password, reset iCloud binding and disable iCloud lock, enable or disable two-factor authentication, save passwords from the local keychain to the cloud and retrieve them from there. For devices with iOS 11 and newer, reset the password for the backup, set your own and decrypt all the same passwords from sites, various accounts and applications.
In iOS 11 and later, the lock code, if set, is also required to establish a trusted relationship with the computer. This is necessary both for removing a backup (there may be other options, for example, through the lockdown file), and for installing a jailbreak.
To establish trust between iPhone and computer in iOS 11 and newer, you need to enter a lock code
Will you be able to jailbreak and pull out those few, but potentially valuable data for the investigation that does not end up in the backup? It depends on the iOS version:
How to jailbreak an iPhone. We analyze step by step all the options for accessing data of devices with iOS
Jailbreak and physical data extraction
If you did not have enough information extracted from the backup, or if you could not guess the password for the encrypted backup, only the jail remains. Now jailbreak exists for all versions of iOS 8.X, 9.X, 10.011.2.1 (we don’t consider earlier versions). There is an Electra jail for iOS 11.3.X, which works on earlier versions of iOS 11.
To install the jailbreak, you need to use one of the publicly available utilities (Meridian, Electra, etc.) and the Cydia Impactor tool. There are alternative hacking methods, for example, escalating privileges without installing a public jailbreak by exploiting a known vulnerability (remember, for iOS 1011.2.1 this is the same vulnerability, information about which, including the ready-made source code, was published by Google specialists). All these methods have a common point: to use them, the iPhone must be unlocked and connected to the computer (a trusted relationship is established).
The next step is to extract the file system image. To do this, at best, it is enough to open a session with the phone using the SSH protocol and execute a chain of commands on the iPhone; in more complex cases, you will need to manually register the necessary paths in the PATH or use the finished product. The result will be a TAR file transferred over the tunnel connection.
If your smartphone has iOS 11.3.X installed, you will have to jailbreak manually, and use the iOS Forensic Toolkit or another similar utility to extract information.
If the iPhone is running iOS 11.4 or a later version, then the jail will have to be postponed indefinitely until the developer community finds another unpatched vulnerability. In this case, you will serve as a backup (as well as extracting common application files, photos and media files and some system logs).
Of course, not everything is backed up. For example, it does not store Telegram correspondence, it does not include e-mail messages, and the history of the user’s location data is extremely concise. Nevertheless, a backup copy is already a lot.
And what if the user is not completely careless and still set the lock code?
Even the most careless users are forced to use Passcode if their employer’s security policy requires it or if they want to use Apple Pay. And here there are two options: either the blocking code is known or not. Let’s start simple.
Has a password been set for the backup?
Not installed? Install and make another backup!
Why set a password for a backup? The fact is that a noticeable part of the information in iOS backups is encrypted even when the user did not set such a password. In such cases, a key unique to each device is used for encryption. It is better to set any password you know on the backup; then the backup, including secret data, will be encrypted with the same password. From the interesting, you will get access to the protected keychain storage, that is, to all user passwords saved in the Safari browser and many built-in and third-party applications.
What if the password for the backup is set and you don’t know it? Unlikely for people with nothing to hide, but still? For devices running older versions of iOS (8.X10.X), the only option is brute force. And if for iOS 810.1 the attack speed was acceptable (hundreds of thousands of passwords per second on the GPU), then starting with iOS 10.2 a frontal attack is not an option: the brute force speed does not exceed hundreds of passwords per second, even when using a powerful photographic accelerator. However, you can try to extract passwords that the user has saved, for example, in the Chrome browser on a personal computer, compose a dictionary from them and use it as a basic dictionary for an attack. (Believe it or not: this simple tactic works in about two out of three cases.)
But devices on iOS 11 and 12 allow you to easily reset your backup password right from iPhone settings. This will reset some settings, such as screen brightness and Wi-Fi passwords, but all applications and their data, as well as user passwords in the keychain, will remain in place. If there is a lock code, you will need to enter it, but if it is not set, then resetting the password for backup is a matter of a few clicks.
To reset the password for the backup, use the Reset All Settings command. It will only reset some settings, including the backup password, but will not affect the data
What else can be removed from a device with an empty lock code? Without jailbreak, you can easily extract the following data set:
- Complete information about the device;
- Information about the user, Apple accounts, phone number (even if the SIM card was removed);
- List of installed applications;
- Media files: and;
- Application files (for example, iBooks documents);
- System logs crash logs (in them, in particular, you can find information about applications that were subsequently uninstalled from the system);
- The already mentioned backup in iTunes format, which will contain the data of many (not all) applications and user passwords from social networks, sites, authentication tokens and much more.
Something like this looks like the interface of the application that retrieves information from the iPhone
How to disassemble Iphone 6 plus with your own hands
Apple does not stand still, and now, on September 19, 2014, a new model Iphone 6 plus was released. She has a 5.5 screen, the largest of all models. You are probably wondering how to disassemble an iPhone 6 plus? Follow the instructions step by step and you will succeed. First, turn off your phone. Unscrew the two 3.6mm screws next to the light connector.
For the next step, you will need a dedicated iSclack gadget or a suction cup. If you purchased a mechanism for safely disassembling an iPhone 6 plus, get ready to carry out the following manipulations.
The iSclack has a depth gauge, take it off, it’s not needed for such large phones. After you close the handles of the device, the jaws with suction cups open. Insert the iPhone between the Velcro, above the home button. Opening the handles, the Velcro shrinks. Press harder to firmly adhere to the display.
Clip your mobile securely and squeeze the ends of the handles together. The suction cups will open by pulling the top of the screen away from the bottom. These actions are enough to safely open the iPhone without harming the cables. Disconnect the device gently and set it aside.
With the suction cup, your next actions should be like this: press it firmly against the screen, above the home button. Make sure everything is sealed. Holding the bottom panel with one hand, pull the velcro up with the other, separating the screen from it.
Take your time, put a little effort, the display fits snugly against the body. Using a plastic screwdriver, gently press down on the back cover while pulling the Velcro up. Perform these shenanigans carefully to open the phone correctly. Pull the suction cup to release the air inside and remove it.
Using the top as a hinge, slide the home button out of the bottom. Hold the front bezel at a ninety degree angle while you follow the steps below.
The clips on the display form a partial hinge that allows the model to swing open like a book. During assembly, line up the clips just below the top of the back case. Then slide the display up, the edges should be flush with the bottom of the panel.
Next, detach the mounting screws holding the metal bracket and remove it.
- 31.2 mm
- 11.5 mm
- 12.9 mm
Caution, during the next four steps, make sure to remove only the cable connectors, not the connectors on the motherboard. While holding the display, use a plastic screwdriver to disconnect the cables of the front camera, speaker, home button and data display.
While collecting, the data cable may suddenly come loose from the connector. You can tell by the blank screen and white lines. To solve this problem, reconnect the wire and restart your mobile device. Lastly, we remove the processor cable for image processing. Then, you can easily remove the top panel.
We unscrew the screws from the plate holding the battery and remove it.
- 12.3 mm
- 13.1 mm
Using a plastic screwdriver, carefully lift the battery connector out of the socket on the motherboard. If you pull on the board socket instead of the connector, there is a chance of breaking it completely.
Peel back the adhesive edge from the bottom right corner of the battery. Use your fingers or blunt tweezers to do this. Be careful near the battery, if punctured, chemicals will be released and a fire break out. Pull out the adhesive tape slowly without twisting or tearing it. If you feel resistance, pull it towards the lower right corner, avoiding the sharp edge. Repeat the procedure with the next tape in the left corner and center. When you’re done, freely remove the battery.
And now you know how to disassemble the iphone 6 plus.
How to disassemble Iphone 6s instructions
New versions of iPhone models are released almost every year. So on September 25, 2015, the Iphone 6 s went on sale. This version is similar to the previous one both in terms of phone parameters and disassembly instructions. Let’s take a look at how to disassemble an iPhone 6s.
How to disassemble iPhone 6s instructions
We start, as always, from the screen. Turn off the phone, take a screwdriver with a Phillips tip and unscrew two 3.4 mm screws at the lightning connector. Next, you need a dedicated iSclack or suction cup. If you have not purchased the mechanism, follow the simple instructions for opening the mobile Velcro exactly.
Take the suction cup and press it firmly against the display, above the home button. The seal must be airtight and all air must be vented. There is a small notch at the bottom, just above the headphone jack, this is the safest place to start opening the iPhone. Don’t forget to prepare a flat-tip screwdriver in advance.
Pull the suction cup slowly upward, slightly separating the top and bottom from each other. Do not rush to do everything right, you need to make more effort, since the top panel is tightly attached to the bottom with special glue. When there is a slight gap, insert a screwdriver there. Rotate it gently to break the adhesive. While doing this shenanigans keep pulling the Velcro up.
With the edge of a screwdriver we circle the phone from all sides, getting rid of the glue. Pulling on the suction cup, lift the display upward, removing the remaining adhesive. Remember, you cannot open the mobile more than ninety degrees, the top three cables are still connected to the back panel, you may break them.
While working on the internals, lean the front panel against something to support it. We find two screws, 3.0 mm and 2.3 mm, that hold the battery connector, unscrew them and remove the metal plate.
Next are the mounting screws for the bracket that protects the cables. Three 1.3 mm and one 3.0 mm. Be careful not to lose them! It is important that the 3.0 screw is in the upper right corner of the plate. If you try to insert it somewhere else, damage the motherboard.
Having removed the metal plate, we proceed to the separation of the cables, and not the jacks themselves in the mnemonic diagram. Use the flat tip of a screwdriver to pry aside the cable for the front camera, touch sensor, data display and encoder. The front can now be easily removed. Iphone 6s disassembly is almost complete.
Important! When the phone is being assembled, chances are the data display wire will come loose from its connector. This usually results in a blank screen and white stripes. If this happens, plug the cable back in, turn the phone on and off. And the best way to set up your device’s charging is to turn off and reconnect the battery connector.
Use the flat end of a screwdriver to remove the battery connector from the motherboard. Make sure the contact is not working and is not charging the phone while you are working with it. Use tweezers to grip the edges of the two adhesive strips at the bottom of the battery. Grasp the ends of the glue with your fingers and join them together. Try to stretch them straight out without twisting. Pull them out slowly and gently from the phone. When everything is done, calmly remove the battery.
If you don’t want to risk it, get an iSesamo or use a hair dryer to warm up the back panel and glue. Slide a plastic card under the battery between the left and the back of the case. Hold it so that it is flat to avoid bending the battery. If this happens, it will be damaged and release hazardous chemicals that could cause a fire. Press down a little with plastic to push past the remaining glue.
From now on, you know how to disassemble the iphone 6s.
Familiar technology 2018. Not for everyone
Iphone 6s has a second-generation Touch ID fingerprint scanner. The proprietary 3D Touch technology is built into the screen. Inside Taptic Engine.
None of the above is in SE.
Overall, the first generation Touch ID also does its job, albeit a little slower. You can live without 3D Touch and Taptic Engine. These are not paramount chips.
2-4. Iphone 6s secures victory
It’s 2018 and iPhone SE is starting to look outdated.
It’s like a car with 150,000 mileage. She is still good, fulfills her task, but already looks tired. The design is morally outdated, it is six years old. A crazy number for the smartphone world.
Taking into account the incessant rumors about the release of the second generation of the budget compact, it is questionable to consider the iPhone SE for purchase today.
At the same time, taking the iPhone 6s instead of any Xiaomi smartphone is quite a reasonable decision. What would you take for 25-30 thousand rubles? Share in the comments.

Body size = convenience
First, information from the captain’s bridge.
Essentially, the iPhone SE is housed in the now classic iPhone 5s case. One of the most recognizable smartphone designs, proven over the years and thousands of crash tests. This is a direct descendant of the beloved iPhone 4s.
Iphone 6s received a regular six body. In the manufacture of 7000 series aluminum alloy is used. In contrast to its predecessor, it is more resistant to bending. Otherwise, the body is nasty slippery, and the stripes on the back cover of the antennas are still disgusting (as in the iPhone 6).
Iphone 6s is unlikely to survive a drop with its rounded side edge to the floor. A smartphone without a case strives to fly. Parachutist without equipment.
Which iPhone to get in 2018: 6s or SE
Today the smartphone market is more than ever pleased with its diversity. Iphone models become affordable for everyone, are no longer scary.
The question is simple, which is better to take for the conditional 25-30 thousand rubles? A compact iPhone SE with a classic body or iPhone 6S that’s still a fighter?
Understanding the pros and cons of each.
Equality in performance
Taking into account the leapfrog with the new iOS 11 firmware, it makes no sense to argue about the advantage of one of the two smartphones released two years ago.
Both are powered by an Apple A9 processor with an M9 coprocessor and 2GB of RAM. Parity. In the AnTuTu performance test, the smartphone scored 134,358 points. For comparison, the iPhone 6s obeyed 132,620 points.
In general, both devices are able to cope without any problems with any tasks relevant for 2018. No strong brakes and glitches. Is not required of them.
The age of content consumption requires a display
Iphone SE has a 4-inch display with a resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels. A tiny display by today’s standards. Someone will say it’s okay, all the basic information is always at a glance, iOS is smartly adapted and so on.
But when you pick up an iPhone 6s, you compare it with a baby and immediately feel the difference.
The six-s has a 4.7-inch screen with a 1334 resolution×750 pixels, on which more useful (and not so) information is corny. The dialing keys are also slightly larger, which means that it is more convenient to use such a keyboard. Less accidental clicks.
By the way, the screen contrast of the iPhone SE is only 800: 1, while in all new models (except for ten) this figure is at 1400: 1.
1-1. Iphone 6s compares score.
Constituent of deceptive similarity
Cameras in both models are identical: 12-megapixel modules with high-speed focusing system (Focus Pixels), True Tone flash, 4K- and Live Photos option.
But lovers of selfies can safely pass by SE. Its front camera received a module with a resolution of 1.2 megapixels with aperture ƒ/2.4. Versus 5 megapixel resolution and aperture ƒ/2.2 on iPhone 6s.
2-3. Six-s comes forward
Iphone and electricity
You can break your iPhone using non-certified chargers and USB cables. An iPhone and any accessories to it are not cheap entertainment. Therefore, some, purchasing an apple device, save on the rest. When our own cable or charger becomes unusable, we often buy cheap Chinese accessories.
This is a big mistake. After all, no one knows how high quality they are and whether they meet elementary safety standards. Starting to charge the iPhone with cheap chargers with USB cables, we run the risk of burning our device. Very often, due to cheap faulty chargers, iPhones ignite and cannot be saved in any way. Worse, they can cause a fire.
The most common causes of iPhone breakdowns
Iphone is one of the most popular smartphones in the world. Not surprisingly, Apple has created an almost perfect phone. Wherever you are, in a cafe or restaurant, in transport, at an airport or train station, in a resort, you can see a person with an iPhone with a hundred percent probability. So why do people choose the iPhone??
Its main advantages are a nice and stylish design, a well-optimized OS, excellent materials and high-quality assembly. It is thanks to these advantages that it is very popular with people all over the world. But like any high-tech gadget, an iPhone can break. There are many ways that your smartphone can become unusable. Let’s see how you can break your apple device.
There are 3 main reasons iPhone stops working. This is the ingress of moisture, mechanical and electrical damage. Next, we will analyze each of them in more detail in order to prevent those mistakes due to which people break their precious gadgets.
A unique way to break your iPhone

Iphone and mechanical damage
The iPhone, like any other technology, loves to be treated with care, so any falls or bumps can break it. Very often the phone can fall off the table, out of your pocket or while talking on the phone (some people manage to pinch it between the ear and shoulder). A person may become thoughtful or distracted, any movement of the hand on the table or a push may cause the iPhone to fall out of hand and fall to the floor.
The height does not have to be great for the gadget to break. It is important which surface the smartphone falls on. Falling onto ceramic tiles, concrete or asphalt, even from low heights, can permanently damage it. The display and the motherboard are particularly affected. Even if the machine falls on its edge, it deforms, thereby compromising internal components. In order to make your smartphone more robust, it is better to get good bumpers or a case. There are special covers and bumpers for extreme recreation, with maximum protection.
Iphone and moisture
Recently, people have become very accustomed to their smartphones and practically cannot live without them. They take them everywhere with them: taking a bath, having lunch, doing various household chores. Even going to the restroom takes place with the iPhone, because you don’t want to interrupt listening to music or communicating on social networks. We take our smartphone with us everywhere so as not to miss an urgent notification, message or important call. It is because of this that devices suffer in the first place. Careless movement of the hand and the phone is already flying into the bathtub, toilet or washbasin.
For a high-tech gadget, an encounter with water can be fatal, since the iPhone does not have moisture protection and it can break. Even a short contact with water will disable the device. You need to get your iPhone out as soon as possible and dry it. Sometimes you can get lucky and nothing bad will happen, but it also happens that even the service center cannot revive your friend. That is why, when you go to the bath or toilet, it is best to leave your iPhone on the table or shelf to keep it intact.
