My headphones broke off inside headphone jack in my iPhone 5s.

I've tried just about everything to get it the piece out.

My phone is still under warranty, will the genius bar help me out with this or no?

Also, if I should go to the genius bar, I should be fine jailbroken because this is a hardware issue? (I will hide Cydia and JB stuff of course)


Thanks

You won't be covered. Dab of glue on a paperclip will do the job. Just be careful.

How did the headphone plugin break into the jack? Are these OEM headphones? If so, it's possible you could be covered under warranty if the cause of the break was due to weakened structural integrity of the headphones due to faulty craftsmanship, and the headphones broke under normal use.

If these are not the OEM earbuds that came with the phone, you might still be covered under the headphone manufacturer's warranty if the plug I broke under normal use. It never hurts to take the phone and the headphones to a Genius Bar appointment and see they can do for you. :) Sent from my iPhone 5.

Can I get a picture of this please? Not to sure what you can do until I see a picture. I don't think apple will fix it.

You'll have to take it in and ask.

Also, if I should go to the genius bar, I should be fine jailbroken because this is a hardware issue?
if they run any kind of diagnostic, they'll know. You may be ok, but there is always a risk if they do find out that it is jailbroken and refuse service.

There is a tool for that problem called the GripStick:


They had a successful Kickstarter, but now they are selling it, you can buy it here:
