Your iPhone stopped working even after you got the battery replaced. It doesn’t matter what you do, it won’t react. I’ll go through some troubleshooting steps here.

You should perform a hard reset on your iPhone.

The software on your iPhone may have crashed, leaving you with a dark screen. Your iPhone may experience a temporary resolution glitch by doing a hard reset.

Which specific steps are required to perform a hard reset on your iPhone is dependent on the model you own.

iPhone SE 2, iPhone 8 And Newer Models

  1. Press and release the Volume Up button on the left side of your iPhone.
  2. Press and release the Volume Down button.
  3. Hold down the Side button on the right side of your iPhone.
  4. Release the side button when the Apple logo appears.

iPhone 7 And 7 Plus

  1. Simultaneously hold down both the power button and volume down button.
  2. Release both buttons when the Apple logo appears.

iPhone 6s And Older Models

  1. Simultaneously hold down the power button and the Home button.
  2. Let go of both buttons when the Apple logo appears.

If the hard reset worked, that’s great! However, you’re not done yet. Hard resetting your iPhone doesn’t address the underlying software issue that caused the problem in the first place. If you don’t address the deeper issue, the   problem may return.

Backup Your iPhone

You can rest assured knowing that every bit of data on your iPhone is safe and sound by regularly backing it up. Depending on the software installed on your Mac, you can utilise either iCloud, iTunes, or Finder to back up your iPhone.

DFU Restore Your iPhone

Your iPhone can be completely wiped clean by doing a Device Firmware Update (DFU) restore. An iPhone’s software and firmware will be completely wiped and reloaded during this restore.

Each iPhone model has a unique procedure for performing a restore. You’ll need your phone, a cord to charge it, and a computer running iTunes first (Macs running MacOS Catalina 10.15 will use Finder instead of iTunes).

Hardware Problems

Failure to solve the issue with a hard reset or DFU restoration suggests faulty repair. It may be the case that the technician who fixed your iPhone messed up the installation of the new battery.

First make sure the problem isn’t solely with the screen before sending it back for repair. Make use of the Ring/Silent toggle by switching it on and off. If the iPhone doesn’t vibrate, it’s not on. If it vibrates but the screen stays black, it may be the screen and not the battery.

Repair Options

After determining if the issue is with the screen or the battery, your best bet is to have a professional look at it. A DIY iPhone repair is not recommended unless you have extensive skills (Stay Tuned for Our Blog)

If at all feasible, take it back to where you first had it fixed. Most likely, there will be no additional costs.
