The versatility of smartphones has become the hallmark of these devices. We unequivocally positively perceive everything new that appears in the design of these gadgets and welcome the new operating modes. Instant messaging, video content, music listening, and more are available with modern smartphones. These include the iPhone 6.
What is an audio codec and what is it responsible for on iPhone 6?
Despite the fact that their assets already have a huge number of variables, and most importantly - useful functions, for their full implementation, the main thing on the phone is the sound. In products branded with a bitten apple, the audio codec - the chip integrated into the motherboard of the phone - is responsible for the sound quality. Its function includes work on encoding and decoding analog audio into digital format and the reverse process. It is a microprocessor that acts as an intermediate link between analog receivers, audio transmitters, and digital audio processing modules. That is, this element ensures the correct operation of the speakers and microphone of the smartphone, involved in talking, playing music, movies, dictaphone recording, and listening.
Signs of failure of this part may be the lack of sound when:
reproduction of audio content;
conversation with another subscriber;
listening through headphones;
attempts to record on a dictaphone.
Thus, any deviation associated with the reception or transmission of audio, the deterioration of its quality, is associated with problems that are hidden in the audio codec.
Is It Expensive To Repair An Audio Codec On iPhone 6?
The policy of many service centers is based on the statement that if the phone is expensive, then its repair a priori can not be cheap. In turn, the owners of very expensive devices still pay huge sums to performers to return the device to work. After all, looking at the problem from their point of view, it becomes clear that it is more profitable to overpay for repairs than to buy a new, even more, expensive gadget.
At the ICOOLA service center, the approach to solving problems with Apple equipment is different: we do everything to optimize the cost of repairs. To prevent you from having to overpay, we have partnered with direct suppliers of original smartphone parts. The main criteria that determine the final price:
the complexity of repair;
the price of spare parts and consumables;
If you set a goal to save and try to fix the defect yourself, then analyzing the situation, you will understand that your costs will exceed the cost of services of masters of the service center, taking into account:
a considerable price for a set of professional tools for repairing Apple smartphones;
the danger of acquiring a low-quality chip;
lack of experience in the maintenance of electronic devices - the most complex and very sensitive to errors of the performer of various kinds.
At the same time, the professionalism and experience of the masters of the ICOOLA service center will save you from the "headache", unproductive costs to correct your mistakes, and even from a solid investment in a new device.
How long does it take to replace an audio codec?
The masters have experience with Apple electronic devices for at least 5 years, which allows them to quickly diagnose and also quickly troubleshoot problems. This is facilitated by the availability of modern diagnostic and repair equipment, sets of professional tools designed to work with smartphones.
