IPhone Screen Damage Repair Official Guide

Screen Damage

Accidents happen. Sometimes a screen can get cracked or shattered. We're here to help.

Request iPhone service

You can mail us your iPhone, make an appointment with a Genius at an Apple Retail Store, or click or tap below to start a service request and see more service options.

How long will it take?

Service at an Apple Retail Store is normally completed on the day of your appointment. If you send in your iPhone for service, you'll receive a replacement or your repaired iPhone in three to five business days. A replacement iPhone will be new or equivalent to new in both performance and reliability.

How much does iPhone screen repair cost?

Repair and replacement costs depend on your iPhone model and your AppleCare coverage.
When you request screen repair online or by phone, Apple will place an authorization on your credit card to cover the iPhone out-of-warranty cost. We'll charge this amount if your iPhone has additional damage and is eligible for out-of-warranty service. If your iPhone has no damage other than the screen, we'll charge the amount below. Learn more.
iPhone 6: $109
iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5: $129
Plus a $6.95 shipping fee. Fees are in USD and exclude local tax. Pricing applies only to screen repair by Apple. Accidental damage isn't covered under the Apple One Year Limited Warranty.

Have AppleCare+?

AppleCare+ covers two incidents of accidental damage with a $79 service fee. You can also use our Express Replacement Service to get a replacement even before sending us your iPhone. You can check if you have AppleCare+ by entering your iPhone serial number.
Make sure you back up your iPhone before you send it to Apple or bring it to an Apple Retail Store.

shattered screen


The manufacturer does not cover accidental damage, but we have recently instituted a new program where you can turn your tablet with a cracked screen in (as long as you are still within your warranty period), and for a reasonable fee we will ship a working replacement. This price covers shipping both ways, and for replacement of the exact same tablet model only. The nice thing about this is that not only are we the least expensive route when you crack your screen, but you do not have to wait for repairs. We simply send a replacement once we receive your damaged one.

I dropped my iPhone and the screen is shattered. I don't want to pay for another phone. What should I do? The screen is cracked only at the top so it is still usable, although I'd rather have it fixed.


somebody has to open the iPhone and replace the part. The cheapest way is to do it your self and you should get aways with around $70. The part is available on ebay. If you want to pay to have a service do it for you there are third party iPhone Screen Repair Services. To try to do it yourself, here's a iPhone Repair guide on how to disassemble an iPhone. As you can see from the guide, this is not quite that easy. Maybe a tech savvy friend can do it for you.

The glass screen of my iphone is shattered - is it repairable or do I need to buy a new one? Phone works fine


It is repairable. I recommend having it done professionally. You can do it yourself but I have seen multiple issues with people messing up their iphones doing that,
