Is it possible to repair an iPhone circuit board to recover data?
My iphone 6 has been water-damaged and now appears to be shorted out. There were a lot of important photsos/videos that had not yet been backed up in any way, and I would very much like to get them back.
I have heard mixed responses when asking the question about whether this data is truly lost. I've heard suggestions the phone could be repaired by fixing the circuit board (e.g replacing the PMIC), or even that the flash drive could be accessed by connecting directly to it somehow. Surely it's possible that the circuits board can be damaged without actually affecting the memory?
Apple aren't interested in data transfer. It seems they just want you to hurry up and buy a new iPhone. Can anyone with electronics knowledge give me an indication of whether i should retain any sort of hope?
thanks in advance
