‘broken’ would do just fine, here in the tech circles, ‘bricked’ stands as the more precise, more colourful, yet more worrying adjective.

Choice of Words The smartphone era gave rise to a special term that no owner would wish to hear in a diagnostic capacity. While

To put it bluntly, ‘bricked’ refers to any handheld device (preferably rectangular) with a software issue so severe it renders it as nothing more than a very expensive paperweight—a brick.

All the Wrong Moves

There are many reasons an iDevice can end up bricked, from instances as simple as a phone that has completely used up all of its battery, to an iPod that somehow got its operating system corrupted. Granted, it is actually quite difficult to brick your device. As long as you avoid interrupting system updates or modifying any of the internal system data, bringing a bricked phone to your office should be the least of your worries.

Signs of Life

After repeatedly attempting to boot up your phone, you finally realise that there may be a serious issue. Our technicians can pinpoint whether your iDevice’s unresponsiveness stems from a hardware or software issue, but that does not mean the diagnosis is over. We still have to determine the type of bricking that has occurred, depending on the gadget’s ability to function. Both ‘soft brick’ (stuck on a certain screen, typically the boot logo) and ‘hard brick’ (no screen response at all) are fixable, though the latter requires very, very significant software tinkering.

What We Can Do

It can happen to any smart phone or gadget, not just Apple devices. Our team repairs iPods, iPhones and Macs on a daily basis. While we are capable of fixing most if not all hardware issues, software that has gone haywire is a far more complicated predicament, but one that we have helped our customers out of time and again.
