Hi all,

I'm Helen. A bit of a n00b to repairing phones. My interest began a few years ago when I started replacing batteries and cracked screens in iPhones and iPads for friends and family.

I am currently on a mission to get a sad iPhone XS back up and running but I am currently rather stuck, so hoping to get some advice on this forum. I am determined not to call time of death on it just yet.

Nice to meet you all 😊
