I saw the same thing on an eBay listing from a "USA" seller of decent screens. I think they are just confusing the home button with the screen out of ignorance. You have to keep the original home button to do updates or restore your phone. This is true for iPhone 5s on up through 6. It will throw code 53 otherwise. Please post if someone knows otherwise on ...

Great picture. I'm not sure I would be able to answer from the words alone. If you focus on two areas - just above the words Airdrop - the fading/smearing looks quite evident. the speaker icon for mute/low volume has definite "smearing" the >> fast forward black triangles also exhibit "smearing" I don't know the technical term for that bleed, but it's a ...

That jitter is pure software. The CSS/javascript are not executing fast enough to prevent a redraw from being noticeable. You could try reducing the load on the CPU by quitting other apps or just run some instruments on the pages where you see jitter and either block the js that is slow or decide to edit your text elsewhere and then copy/paste it to avoid ...

Already tried NVRAM reset? I've been surprised by how many problems this "fixes": https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204063 Turn on your Mac. Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys immediately after you hear the startup sound. Hold these keys until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for a second time. Release the ...

The quick answer is that there isn't really much you can do on your end. What can I do? You could take apart the phone and attempt to fix the display manually, but by no means does this guarantee a fix (or even an improvement). By doing this, you would also run the risk of damaging your device further. If Apple replaced your screen when it was broken, ...

There is firmware on all replacement parts. I'd just wait until iOS 9 comes out in September to make sure that the screen is compatible with the new software, just make sure you can return the screen. However, there are some better vendors, like iFixit, that would likely sell screens that will likely be compatible with iOS 9, just be prepared to pay an arm ...

It could be dead pixels or it could be the driver 'chips' or a dead 'mux'. The hardware that control what pixels are turned on. Note the color, It looks to me like a group of pixels are 'turned on' when they shouldn't be. It is hard to tell just by looking at a picture. It could be anything in the graphics display hardware. Just let Apple replace it, no one ...

Turn you screen fully bright. Open Terminal, type nvram backlight-level. Note the value. Create a logout hook to run nvram backlight-level=<value>. In my case the value was backlight-level %a0%06.

I think it should be mentioned that a bulging or swollen battery is a sign of failure and it may be dangerous. From Wikipedia: All Li-ion cells expand at high levels of state of charge (SOC) or over-charge, due to slight vaporisation of the electrolyte. (…) This is very noticeable for LiPos, which can visibly inflate due to lack of a hard case to ...

1) I believe from having bought several parts on Amazon and various dealers that they're no so called "original" parts… But some seems to be manufactured at the same factory as Apple ones. 2) The most comon problem I had with iPhone 4/4S is heratic touch-screen most of the time due to a piece of glass stuck on one of the corners and thus creating "bad ...

You'd better search Google on how to distinguish an original iPhone 4/4S screen and a copy one. There are many copies in aftermarket. I have seen many people complaining about the screen replacements from eBay and Amazon. If you want to get one from either of them be careful not to buy the fake ones. Recently, I got an iPhone 6 screen replacement from a ...

Nice issue, it was happened just a couple of weeks ago to me. I solved this issue taking back the iPhone (3 years old, not covered from warranty) to the Apple Store. They replaced mine iPhone with a refurbished one in 10 minutes for free. I think this is the best solution. Otherwise you can try to fix it on your own. The issue here is that the battery is ...

Sorry, the digitizer is separating from the LCD. If you feel comfortable buy a new digitizer assembly (not the digitizer or LCD alone) and change it out with the iPhone 5 digitizer assembly guide from ifixit.com. Otherwise take it to someone who can change it fit you (be prepared to pay $75-$100+).

It is hard to replace only the glass on your phone. So the price is some high. Apple charges $129 (plus tax) to fix a broken iPhone 5s screen. If you can't get to an Apple store, you can mail your device in to Apple for a shipping fee of $6.95. If you purchased AppleCare+ ($99 for two years) for your device, you'll only have to pay $79 for a screen repair -- ...

If I understand your question correctly, it seems you wish to to change the behavior of the Spaces feature in Yosemite do this: In System Preferences select Mission Control Uncheck Displays have separate spaces This will require a logout to affect the change.

The digitizer (the part that senses touch) was damaged in the drop. It will likely need the digitizer replaced. Not sure if that is replaceable separately or of you have to replace the whole screen assembly but that is what needs to be done, no way around it.
