From where you can get Apple-certified repairs?

The technician at these centers receives special training from Apple. They will deliver the same high-quality service with genuine Apple parts.

The Apple Store and many of our Apple Authorized Service Providers offer same-day service for some repairs, such as screen repair.

If your technician needs to send your iPhone to an Apple Repair Center, you’ll be notified when it’s ready for pickup.

What will be the repairing cost?

Now comes the most important part which is the cost that you need to pay for the repair. After examining your iPhone, your technician will confirm the total costs for repair or replacement.

In some cases, a repair might be covered by the Apple warranty, an Apple Care plan, or consumer law. There are different costs of repairs depending on what is damaged such as screen, battery, or any other genuine part.

Screen repair:

If you have a cracked iPhone screen then you can visit Apple Store, an Apple Authorised Service Provider, or by sending it to an Apple Repair Canter.

At all the three places genuine parts will be used to ensure that you get the screen as it was before. Even some locations offer same-day service so, you don’t have to wait for a long time to get your screen repaired.

The cost of the screen repair varies on the model which you want to repair. Different iPhone models have different pricing. You can check the full list of prices based on different iPhone models here.

Battery replacement:

The Warranty doesn’t cover batteries that wear down from normal use. If you have battery issues with your iPhone that isn’t covered by Apple Limited Warranty or Apple care you might have to pay a fee to replace it.

There are different charges to replace the battery for different iPhone models. For iPhone X or newer models, you have to pay $69 for a battery replacement if you don’t have any warranty or Apple Care+.

Meanwhile, for models that are older than iPhone X or any other eligible models, the charge for battery replacement is $49.

Other iPhone repairs:

If your iPhone was damaged and you don’t have AppleCare+, your repair fee will vary, depending on the repair.

If your iPhone issue is covered by the Apple warranty, AppleCare+, or consumer law, there’s no charge. This does not include accidental damage, which requires a fee.

If your iPhone was damaged and you have AppleCare+, the coverage includes accidental damage protection. Each incident has a service fee.
