In this case, the best thing to do is to buy an iPhone screen saver, which will allow you to protect the screen much better against any blow and will prevent cracks from spreading on the surface.

Take it to an Apple Store for Repair

The first thing to do is go to the nearest Apple store with this in hand, which comes from the same page on broken screens of the Apple site. With this board in hand, you can already know how much you will get to fix it with Apple’s official warranty.

As you see in that table, prices vary greatly if you are covered by Apple’s official warranty, if the warranty expired. For example: repair the broken screen of an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus will cost you only $ 29 dollars if you are under warranty, however without it will be $ 129 dollars.

If you do not know if your iPhone has AppleCare + warranty you can check it from this link, then enter the serial number of your iPhone and go.

These iPhone screen repair fees apply to Apple’s official stores. Sending it to the repair center Apple Repair Center usually takes about 4 to 6 business days, and for this shipment, they also charge (of course if … it’s Apple!) About $ 7 dollars.

What do I do if I do not have an Apple store nearby?

This happens to many people, over those who buy their iPhone over the Internet and live in places away from Apple’s official support.

Here you can take it to a shop/workshop where they repair mobile phones in general, however you must ensure 100% that they know what they do and that they can fix the problem, you run greater risks than if you take them to an official store, but worse is to stay with The screen without seeing anything.

The unofficial repair service should be good, be sure to read their reputation, reviews, etc, and see if it is a long established business. Especially because if by X or Y leave your iPhone bad, broken, or with some broken function will invalidate the warranty on your phone , and Apple will surely refuse to do any repair on your iPhone .

So if you are going to take it to a workshop of this type, make sure you can fix the problem you have, and any subsequent failure. And something is clear, they will surely charge you above $ 130 dollars the arrangement, we have not seen anything cheaper in unofficial Apple stores.
