For iPhone 5 - Antenna Inductive Coupling PCB Connector - 821-1582/1700-A
It may not sound particularly glamorous, but the iPhone 5G antenna inductive coupling PCB connector is a crucial part of the handset that can cause real problems if it is damaged or develops a fault. iPhone 5 owners can replace it affordably with this component, and you should do so as soon as possible to restore full functionality before something even worse happens.
The Three Antennas
Back in 2010, when the iPhone 4 first arrived, there was some controversy about its antenna, with users claiming that the signal would drop out when the handset was held in a certain way. This came to be known as Antennagate, with Apple learning from the issues that occurred and ensuring that future models did not suffer the same fate.
The iPhone 5 has a total of three antennas handling the various connectivity capabilities, including mobile networking, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. For these to function correctly, they need to be grounded, which helps to protect the other components within the phone from interference and damage due to electrical issues.
As a result, the iPhone 5G antenna inductive coupling PCB connector plays a key role in keeping the device working as normal, although over time it can develop problems and even break completely, which makes a quick replacement important. If you do not address an issue of this kind, you might find that your phone loses other functions, which could dramatically increase the costs of repair and the replacement parts required.
This replacement part is quite cheap because the materials involved and components required are not especially complex, which is good news if something does go wrong with the existing components within your iPhone 5. As long as you catch the problem early and identify what needs to be done, it need not escalate into something more problematic.
Getting at the antenna assembly, which is found at the base of the iPhone 5 near the lightning connector port, can require time and attention, but with professional help it is simple, and you might be looking to buy this part yourself before taking your phone to a repair shop to get the work done by someone with experience in this area.
There is plenty of information about problems with the inductive coupling PCB connector for the iPhone 5 available online, so you can arm yourself with some details before you do get a third party to check out your phone. This will let you know what to expect.
Frugality with Style
The iPhone 5 is still an incredibly desirable smartphone, in spite of the fact that it came out two years ago. And Apple is still committed to releasing software updates and keeping it in line with its newer stablemates. So whether you purchased it in 2012 or yesterday, you want to make sure that it works perfectly.
A replacement part such as this is a good investment, even if you just want to keep a spare PCB connector for the antenna to hand for when those sudden disasters strike.
