Smashed your iPhone Screen?
Before getting your device repaired at a repair shop/service you should research the following about the repair shop:
- What are their reviews like?
- Do they replace the water-resistant adhesive? This only applies to the iPhone 7 & newer.
- How much do they charge? Often if the price is too good to be true then you’re paying the price on the quality of the parts and/or the quality of the technician carrying out the repair on your iPhone.
- Do they offer a warranty? We’ll get on to more about iPhone repair warranties in the next section.
iPhone Repair Warranties
When getting your iPhone repaired by a third-party repair service it’s always important to check that they offer a warranty of greater than 6 months on the repairs they perform, whether it’s a battery replacement or a screen replacement you should aim for a 6-month warranty. Why? Because any repairs performed by a third-party on your iPhone will VOID apple’s warranty unless of course, the repair service is authorized by Apple (you can check this with Apple).
Reputable repair services will always provide a warranty of no less than 6-months from the date of a repair, make sure the full terms of the warranty are available otherwise it’s just a vague “promise” that they’ll fix any issues in the warranty period.
