If your iPhone has been your true companion, and you are disheartened by the fact that you accidentally broke its screen, the next thing that probably crosses your mind is how to repair it. The cost of an iPhone repair could vary largely based on where you take it for repairs. For a broken screen, the first place that might come to your mind is a genuine Apple store. Are you wondering whether such a visit will burn a hole in your pocket? If yes, here is a quick guide to the costs behind iPhone screen repairs.
At the Apple Store, you could be in luck if your phone is covered under AppleCare+. In such a scenario, you would only need to spend £29 for the iPhone repair service, be it any model. If your phone, however, is out of warranty, the prices would range from £129 for the models iPhone SE, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, and iPhone 6, to a high rate of £329 for an iPhone XS Max. As for other models, the standard out-of-warranty rates are £149 for the models iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, and iPhone 8. It would cost you £169 to repair the screen of an iPhone 6s Plus. an iPhone 7 Plus, or an iPhone 8 Plus. £199 is what you pay for the models iPhone XR and iPhone 4s (if that is what you still use), while the screen repair of an iPhone X and an iPhone XS would cost you £279.
Another option to repair the screen of your iPhone at a cheaper rate if your phone is not covered under warranty any more, is to check out local but reputed phone repair centers, such as RadioShack or CPR. At CPR, for example, you could get your iPhone 5S repaired for as low as £89. You could also go for the “Do-It-Yourself” technique where you only need to pay the price of the screen replacement kit, which is around £50 for an iPhone 5. No matter which option you choose, there are plenty of alternatives to walking into an Apple store either for a repair or a new iPhone purchase.
