iPhone Back Glass Replacement
We are all familiar with the process of dropping our phones. After a various amount of fuming, we make our way to our technicians/repair shops and pay for a screen repair. The question is, what happens when the the back glass is shattered? We’ll walk over your options so you can have your phone looking like new again.
How much does Apple charge for a back-glass repair?
This is a great question, and it deserves some exploration. Apple has 2 pricing options for repairs, “Screen repair only” and “Other damage”. The price increases about $200-$300 when it is anything other than the main screen. Unfortunately, this also means the back glass. For example, if you broke your iPhone 8 rear glass it would be a whopping $349. If you’re not looking to spend this much, and you don’t want to deal with the apple store, the next question is… can it be fixed elsewhere?
Can I replace my iPhone back glass?
The main problem here is that the rear glass is fused into the frame of the phone. This means technicians will usually have to move everything from your phone into a pre-owned frame. While a couple of youtubers have resorted to using extreme heat or cold and chipping away for hours, it might be safe to say you don’t have liquid nitrogen in your garage (hopefully) or something that’s hot enough without melting your phone. Even JerryRigEverything advises against repairing the device yourself, as it comes with a lot of risk. There is another option that costs less, that will save your time and sanity.
