Is it greyed out? If so unfortunately it will need to come back to us if it still under warranty for a replacement. 

If it isn’t, have you tried connecting to another WiFI router or hotspot? Try resetting the router and reconnecting.

Try resetting your network settings:

  • Open the ‘Settings’ app
  • Go to “General” section
  • Choose “Reset” and then select “Reset Network Settings”
  • Confirm to reset network settings, this will reboot the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and clear and reset all network service settings on the device

Check your SIM card is active in another phone or with the network.

Check your device’s maximum battery capacity percentage by going to the battery health section in the device’s settings. If this percentage is below 75% a battery replacement is highly recommended. If your device is boot-looping (meaning it repeatedly restarts over and over), it’s likely the battery is faulty.
  • Check there is no debris or fluff in the charging port blocking it. The cable casing should be flush with the phone
  • Gently use a small plastic tool to carefully pry any debris from the charging port. The item should now charge.
  • Check that the cable and plug are fully working on another device. If not, they will need to be replaced.

Please note that we cannot process any return if your device is still connected to your iCloud account.

To sign out of your iCloud account please complete the following steps:

  • Tap Settings > iCloud (If you can’t see “iCloud” tap your name/profile at the top of the Settings screen).
  • Scroll down and tap Sign Out.
  • Tap Sign Out again, then tap Delete from My iPhone and enter your password.
  • Go back to Settings and tap General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings.
  • If you turned on Find My iPhone, you might need to enter your Apple ID and password.
  • If asked for your device passcode or Restrictions passcode, enter it. Then tap Erase [device].
  • Check the loudspeaker volume is set to maximum.
  • Check there is no debris in the speaker.

All iPhones only have one speaker so to hear from one side is normal, all iPads apart from the pro series have only one speaker so to hear from only one side is normal.

  • Check there is no debris in the earpiece. Please use some tape to lift out any debris from the earpiece
  • Check the earpiece volume is up to the maximum. In call, press the up volume button.

Unfortunately, it does not. Any visual or hidden cracks will automatically void any warranty regardless of faulty part. Cracked screen indicates impact damage which can have an adverse affect on any component inside the device, including the motherboard.
