If you are seeking iPhone glass replacement or repair for any other accidental damage, and the phone’s limited one-year warranty is already voided, going to a third party repair shop will not void your warranty. Service providers will try to convince you to buy a new device instead of repairing it. On the flip side, repair shops offering post-warranty repairs will always do what they can to fix your device so you don’t have to buy a new one — and 9 times out of 10 repairing your device will be cheaper than replacing.
You have basically 3 options for iPhone glass replacement:
1. Take it directly to Apple.
2. Do it yourself.
3. Find a third party repair shop.
Here’s what you can expect from each of those options:
Taking it to Apple
If your phone is still under warranty and the crack in your screen is just a hairline (single line) crack, Apple may replace your screen for free, because in certain cases it considers hairline cracks (without any obvious sign of drop impact) to be indicative of defective glass.
If your screen is shattered, Apple replacement will be your most costly option. The big drawback to Apple’s repair service is that if you’re not near an Apple store, you’ll need to send your phone in for service, which will take 3 to 5 days. Who wants to go almost a week without their iPhone?
You can purchase a repair kit that contains the tools you need to perform the screen replacement. You will need to order your kit, unless you live near an electronics parts supply store that carries them. That means you will likely have to wait two to five business day to get the new screen. Replacing the glass can be relatively inexpensive if you know what you are doing. However, if you do not know what you are doing, it could ultimately prove far costlier than alternative repair and replacement methods.
Third Party Repair Shop
An experienced repair shop can help you save money and prevent you from having to purchase a new device, but this is only true if you visit a shop that has experience with iPhone repair. A technician who is not skilled in iPhone repair can actually cause more damage to your device. Be sure to check the reputation of the repair shop and the technicians before sending or taking your iPhone to the repair shop. If you need to find a shop that can replace iPhone screen, be sure to only choose one that is certified to work on Apple products.
