    I think it is an "s" but I know for sure it's at least an IPhone 7. It had dropped and cracked a while ago and it worked okay. sometimes the touch screen would get weird especially if it got wet, but other than that it was fine. I dropped it today and it landed on its back. it did not crack, but a majority of the screen has been unresponsive . The first time it dropped and cracked the home button cracked as well and would not work, so I have been using a home button on the screen that you can move around. Today when I dropped it, the home button was on the right side of my screen and I could not move it and it would not respond to anything. I also tried to power it off but the button would not slide, so I held the power button and volume down button to restart it. once I did that I could press and move the home button since it moved to the bottom, but every time I click on it to get into my phone a notification saying "unable to activate touch ID on this Phone" pops up and I can not click "OK" to get rid of it because the middle of my screen is also unresponsive. I do not want to pay to get my screen fixed because if I do that I feel like I might as well just buy a new phone, but I have all of my pictures and stuff on there, but I can't get to them. I do have an Apple ID but most of the pictures are not there because it's full, so I need to actually get them and airdrop them to another device, but like I said I can't get to them. Is there a way to fix this myself or maybe remote control my IPhone from another device? Also I do not have a SIM card, this phone is not like technically active, but I still use it because all I need to use it for I can do with WIFI, so I do not know if this will affect any solutions. Also once I do get all my important stuff off of it, how would you restart/delete everything off of it, so I just don't have to worry about it anymore? without using the touch screen of course, because I doubt it's going to work again.
