There is a very common issue on the iPhone 7 series caused by the audio ic. This issue usually starts with a phone taking a very long time to boot (sometimes 5 minutes) and intermittent problems with hearing people and people hearing you on the phone.
As the fault develops further the speaker phone option will be greyed our, voice memos won’t work and sometimes the phone will get stuck on the apple logo.
These are all very common symptoms, and can all be resolved by removing the audio ic, repairing broken traces to pads, there is usually one main line that breaks which is the c12 pad.
When we repair audio issues on the iPhone 7 we will run jumper cables to 4 different pads making sure that the issue will not return again in the future.
The jumper cables that are installed are much stronger than the original board traces making this a long term fix. On the rare occasion that the IC itself is faulty we can also replace this to guarantee a true fix.
