Testing all functions on iPhone, the 3D touch, camera and Bluetooth functions all are normal, except the iPhone Wifi function, the iPhone Wifi switch can't be turned on, and it’s grayed out. Firstly we try to fix by some simple software solutions, but not working, until we dissemble the iPhone and fix it in hardware aspect. The repair process is as follows.
