Apple Accused of Using Water-Damaged Boards in Refurbished Devices
A rather small YouTube channel ‘iPad Rehab’ is accusing Apple of using water-damaged boards in Apple’s refurbished devices – an Apple iPad Mini to be exact.
Jessa from the video has enough evidence to prove that the refurbished iPad Mini she received for repairing from a customer after it was dropped and had no display was never opened by an independent repairer.
However, when observed closely, the board had water-damaged components, no adhesive around the power management chip, and traces of excessive heat on the board.
The said video notes that the refurbished iPad Mini lost display due to a common drop damage that an original board would not be susceptible to because of underfill on the PMIC chip.
All in all, it is a pretty convincing and shocking video that you can view above! Also do not forget to share your impressions with us in the comments section below!
