iPhone 6 Plus Blue Screen After Screen Replacement

Problem: I recently had the phone screen replaced on my iPhone 6 Plus. Now when the phone comes on, the Apple icon comes on like the phone is about to power on, but then this blue screen comes up and it just restarts and doesn’t go past that screen. What seems to be the problem?

Solution: Try to check first if this problem is caused by a glitch in the phone software by restoring the phone to its original factory condition and setting it up as a new device.

If the problem still persists or if you are unable to restore the phone then this issue may be caused by the recent screen replacement. Bring your phone to where you had the screen replaced then have it checked for any hardware related issues.

iPhone 6 Plus Flickering Screen

Problem: Since the last couple of updates my screen has started flickering at the top and now apps are not responsive. Sometimes the phone locks up and I can’t do anything with it. Even after a reset, home button and power button push, it can still be a problem. Read online from one owner that it appears to be a hardware issue that can be recreated by flexing the phone. Hold the top left and bottom right and flex a bit and it will flicker. I tried it and it did it once but no more after that

Solution: Before ruling this as a hardware problem you should first check the software side of your phone. The quickest way to check if this is a software problem is to backup your phone data then restore the phone to its original factory condition. Set up your phone as a new device.

If it still flickers then there’s a possibility that this may already be hardware related. You should then bring your phone to an authorized service center for checking.
