There’s nothing more frustrating than dropping your iPhone or iPad, only to have the screen crack. Your device is asically unusable when the screen is cracked, so you have to do something quickly.
Fortunately, you have five options for cell phone or tablet repair:
1. Use AppleCare+
If you purchased AppleCare+ with your iPhone or iPad, you can use it to repair your screen. Unfortunately though, you aren’t going to get a free screen. But, you will get a discounted one. You’ll still have to pay a fee when you take the phone into Apple, so make sure you bring your wallet with you when you go in for your tablet or cell phone repair.
2. Get Apple to Fix It Without AppleCare+
Apple will still fix your iPhone or iPad, even if you don’t have AppleCare+. Bring it into the Apple store and simply ask them to fix it. Unfortunately, it will cost considerably more to repair it than it would if you had AppleCare+. Expect to pay a premium for using Apple.
3. Use Your Insurance
If you cracked your iPhone and you have insurance through your cellular provider, it’s time to cash it in. All policies are unique, so see if your provider covers cosmetic damage. If so, pay your deductible and get a new or refurbished device.
4. Do a DIY Repair
If you’re handy, consider taking your cell phone or tablet repair into your own hands. Get a repair kit, watch some videos online, and replace your scre en on your own. This isn’t always easy, but if you’re good with tools, you can do it.
Most people prefer to take their devices to a local cell repair shop. Then, they can hand it over to a skilled technician, get the repair, and take it home without the hassle. This is fast, affordable, and easy. If you don’t want to put a lot of thought into the process, this is the right option for you.
Cracking the screen on your iPhone or iPad isn’t the end of the world. Use one of these repair options and your device will be like new again in no time at all. Finally, get the right protective case and you won’t have to worry about cracking your screen again.
