Exclusive True Story Series #1 iPhone as a Holiday Camera

iPhone Holiday Camera

Intro to iPhone as a Holiday Camera

At YP Mac, we aim for this true stories series to inspire everyone to become better and smarter Apple users. The first story revolves around a client who went on a holiday trip to Vietnam with her family. Throughout the journey, she uses her iPhone as her holiday camera.

Taking Photos

We’re not here to teach you how to snap photos and record videos; haha, there are plenty of experts for that. Anyway. The customer holds her family in high regard and spending quality time with them is invaluable. Hence, those photos and videos on her iPhone from their family trip to Vietnam hold immense significance to her!

Every now and then, accidents or what some may call ‘bad luck’ occur when one’s not paying attention. The day prior to their departure from Vietnam, her iPhone 13 with 256GB capacity, suddenly powered off and refused to turn back on. Despite attempting different charger adapters and cables, the phone remained unresponsive.

What’s Next for her iPhone

Upon arriving at KLIA, the customer and her partner immediately made their way to our office to get her iPhone checked. However, diagnosing and checking such issues honestly takes time. It’s not a matter of simply opening up the device and fixing it straight away.

The components within the iPhone, particularly the logic board (or motherboard), are incredibly small and require thorough checking of all the circuits, components and hardware.

The catch here is that the phone do not any backup to iCloud. Her intention was to purchase the latest iPhone 15 upon returning from Vietnam and transfer all the data over.

This is where accidents or unfortunate events occur. You may have the best intentions to upgrade your device, but without a data backup, you’re essentially risking all your data, memories and records.

As we’ve mentioned countless times, iCloud is incredibly affordable, starting at just RM3.90 per month. Therefore, excuses like it’s hard to set up, expensive or not having enough time for backup are simply not acceptable. Follow our straightforward guide here to secure everything on your iPhone, iPad, and even your Mac computer!

Interesting Fact About This iPhone Holiday Camera Owner

The customer displayed great patience and allow us to take our time with the checking and repair process. The most important aspect was ensuring that the data, including photos and videos, could be retrieved.

After three days of checking and repairing, we successfully repaired the phone with all the data intact. The customer expressed immense gratitude and we were equally happy to have been able to help her.

Here’s an interesting fact: the customer is from Johor! In fact, she left her phone with us while she returned to Johor to be with her family. We are incredibly thankful for the trust this customer has placed in us!

Conclusion to iPhone as a Holiday Camera

It’s always advisable to have a backup rather than relying on luck to restore a device to working condition with the data still intact.
