Phone died. What are chances of getting a backup
My daughters iPhone 7 died this week. She said it suddenly started re-booting, got hot at one point then started and worked, only to die and refuse to restart. I took it to ubreakifix. They plugged it in and saw that it was charging, but not starting. They immediately went to “screen replacement”. Strange, but OK. They called me to say they couldn’t get it running and even tried a different battery. One other observation is that they volume up button seemed stuck. They said they wouldn’t repair. I opened phone (have been doing iPhone rebuilds on all our phones for years). No liquid damage. I pulled all connectors (tried with/without screen) in hopes of getting it running to do backup. Wouldn’t make USB connection. Did volume down button, power button hold.
Based on the symptoms is there any reasonable hope of getting it running to grab a backup? I could find a donor 7 and just try a MB swap to eliminate everything else in the frame that might be causing it to not start. I have a backup from June, so I will likely just use that on the replacement, but it would be nice to get some stuff back. Rossman Group data recovery starts at 300 bucks. Not worth it in my situation.
The rebooting and “HOT” makes me think the MB might have bit the dust.
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
