How Durable is iPhone 12?
If you’ve been following the annual release of new iPhones, then you are surely used to hearing claims like “strongest glass ever in an iPhone.” Well this year, it’s not just marketing speak. As we mentioned in our last post, Apple has incorporated Corning’s new “Ceramic Shield” onto the front of the iPhone 12 series, allegedly making it’s screen glass 4x more resistant to damage. Furthermore, they claim their new angular design brings added strength to the device. But how do these phones actually perform in practice? We’ve turned to YouTube for the answer to this question, and rounded up the results from several channels to get a better understanding of what the phone can take.

While the Coronavirus situation continues to deepen worldwide, its effects on the smartphone repair industry are starting to fade. The factories in China are gradually working their way back up to normal operation and we have been able to maintain a steady inventory of products. That being said, each supplier’s situation is different, so there will be some parts that are less available than others- particularly high-demand or difficult-to-source replacement screens. We are working closely with each of our suppliers to make sure we get new parts as fast as they can produce them.

Many of you have asked about the Coronavirus, how it is affecting us, and what it means for your business. It’s understandably a scary situation, but we are staying pragmatic in our approach to the issue. There are several factors at work and the information is constantly changing, so we are doing our best to make sure this impacts our customers as little as possible. That being said, we are expecting an impact in terms of delays and parts availability.
The situation right now
The outbreak came just as China was preparing for its annual Lunar New Year celebration, which typically results in businesses closing for the holiday. During this time, workers typically return home, and exports cease for a period of about 2 weeks. Because of the outbreak however, China has had to extend the break- twice in fact.

Stock Up for the Lunar New Year with Behalf!
Happy New Year! ...or is it? While most of us are cruising into 2020, eagerly looking forward to the months ahead, there is another New Year celebration that has yet to happen- The Lunar New Year! If you are unfamiliar, Lunar New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, is the biggest holiday in Chinese culture. It’s such a big deal, that many businesses shut down for the duration of the holiday, which will be happening this year from January 25 to February 4.

Last week we attended Mobile World Congress in Los Angeles. It had been a while since we were last at this event, so we felt the need to make an appearance again. These types of events allow us a unique opportunity to interact face-to-face with new and existing customers, and MWC is a good candidate, being one of the largest events in the mobile industry.

What you should know about in iOS 13
iOS 13 is officially out and it looks to be quite a big upgrade. There are so many features and changes that it would take a massive blog post to go over them all. Thankfully, MacRumors has already done that, so if that’s something you’re interested in, head over to their post. Instead, we will be going over some of the more “need-to-know” traits that are relevant to repair professionals. Quick note- if you come across someone who has yet to upgrade, try to discourage them from taking the leap just yet (more on this later in the article).
Better Support and Performance
The most crucial upgrade in iOS 13 is its focus on performance. Apple has made optimization and efficiency tweaks all over the OS, resulting in faster app-launching times, smaller app downloads and updates, and even quicker Face ID and Apple

iPhone 11 and Repair
Apple just unveiled their “new” (extensively leaked) iPhone series. For the most part, it seems like these models introduce minor upgrades to the previous two generations, most notably, the new triple-camera arrangement on the back of the two “Pro” models. All other phone-related announcements seem to have more to do with software, which is mostly good news for those of us in the repair industry (though we will have to wait for the actual release before we can say for sure).
That being said, things may not be entirely “business as usual”. We have a few “predictions” (speculations) about how these devices will affect the repair industry:
Expect to see more inexpensive repairs.

Which Screen Quality is Right For You?
When it comes to aftermarket screens, there is a lot of variety. There are different manufacturers, manufacturing processes, display types, assembly techniques, and extra options and features. It can get a bit overwhelming when browsing the large part catalogs of vendors like ourselves. Additionally, the hardware landscape continually changes and evolves over time, which only adds to the confusion.
For this reason, Maya Parts categorizes its screens into several “Qualities,” each sharing a common set of features and traits. The charts below list out those features under the appropriate quality:
