4 Ways To Fix Your Broken iPhone Screen
It is just not possible to carry around a phone and not drop it. Although most people who have iPhones are extra cautious, dropping an iPhone is something that will eventually happen. Most of the times, there will be no damage because of the iPhone cover you might have on. However, sometimes bad things happen and your iPhone screen might get damaged because of the blow.
There are two things to consider if the screen of your iphone breaks.
- Which version of iphone do you have?
- What protection plan have you registered to for your phone?
Since each iphone version is slightly if not completely different from the other, the screen size and the technology also differ and hence, each one has a different code that it follows when it comes to repairing them. In any case, once the screen has been broken, nobody wants to have to spend a lot of money on repairing it. If you have a protection plan, this is when you can avail it without having to spend a lot of money. However, if you do not have one, get ready to spend some if not a huge amount of money to fix the screen.
Methods to Get Your iPhone Fixed
Here are the different ways in which you can get the screen of your iphone fixed:
1. Apple Repair Shop
This is perhaps the most reliable and the most expensive of all ways in which you can get the screen fixed. You can go to any Apple store, and forward a request. If your phone has AppleCare+, the overall cost will be less. If your phone is in warranty, you may not still get a free replacement because it does not cover accidental damage. However, AppleCare+ offers the fixture with minimal service fees on accidental damage the first two times.
2. Third-Party Services Authorized by Apple
There are many repair centers that do not belong to Apple but have been authorized by the company to carry out repairs of Apple products. They are completely reliable and come with the assurance that all parts are genuine and you will not be conned into getting substandard parts. However, this option may be a bit expensive, though not entirely unreasonable.
3. Local Repair Shops
Both Apple Repair Shops and Third-Party Apple Authorized Repair Shops can be expensive. If you think you cannot afford these two, the last resort is going to a local repair shop. You will find a lot of cheap options here. However, do not get swayed by the cheapest because it might not be the best option. It is ideal if you can read up on reviews online or ask around if the shop is a reliable one or not. Moreover, look for a shop that provides with a warranty once the repair has been made.
4. DIY Kits
Yes, there are kits available that help you replace or fix your iPhone screen on your own. However, you must be absolutely sure that you will be able to carry out this task because if anything goes wrong, you might end up permanently damaging your iPhone or spend more money to get it repaired instead.
If you have a broken iPhone screen, one the above four ways should definitely resolve your issue.
