Point – 2. Soldering Joint Issues – Another common problem with dropping an iPhone is the soldering joints on your phone’s front camera cable can separate due to the impact upon hitting the floor. When that happens, the proximity sensor ( that prevents manipulation due to face touching during phone calls ) can stop working. In addition, many iPhone 8 Plus’s ear speaker will malfunction due hard or regular drops.
Point – 3. Touch Screen Doesn’t Respond – The motherboard design of the new iPhones such as: The iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, is they are compact and are comprised of two sandwiched printed circuit ( PCBs ). However, like with the iPhone 8 Plus, the sandwiched components can quickly disintegrate due to impact. This affects the touch screen and makes it unresponsive.
