How much do Apple charge for iPhone Screen Repair Services?
Our prices are very competitive with Apple but our turnaround time is much faster and there is no need to book an appointment at the “genius bar”. For most iPhone repairs, we are the more cost effective solution. However, if your device is damaged beyond repair and can’t be fixed, assuming you don’t need the data, taking your phone directly to Apple for a swap is certainly your best option. In addition, it would be very rare for Apple to replace anything other than the screen. If there are signs of additional damage to the frame or any other components, they will not service the device. Most importantly, in almost every circumstance you will lose any data stored on the phone.
iPhone LCD display damage
For all iPhone models the LCD Display, the front glass and the touch module mechanism come attached as one complete unit. The fully assembled part is then installed into the frame and should restore any display or visibility issues. In some cases the screen maybe completely hanging off, attached only by the cables. For others it maybe shattered but still functional. Regardless of how severe the damage seems, after replacing the screen most devices come straight back to life.
Do we use original Apple Screens?
This is a question we and other repair stores get asked every day. Unfortunately, most do not reply with the honest answer. The truth is, only Apple can offer you “Original” parts. Apple doesn’t sell or supply parts to 3rd parties. Why would they? If your device breaks, Apple and any other manufacturer obviously wants you to go back to them in order to potentially up-sell additional products and services or try and get you to upgrade to a newer model. Manufacturer swap programs are ideal in the event your device can’t be fixed. However, for common repairs there are more time and cost effective solutions available to you. Pricing for repairs are based on the quality of the part being installed, not if it’s original or came from Apple. Fone Fix only uses high-grade parts that have been rigorously tested prior and post repair. In addition, in the unlikely event you were to experience any issues, all repairs come with 6 months warranty. If you have any additional questions about “genuine” and “non-genuine” Apple repairs we would recommend to contact Apple directly to confirm any “authorised” repairs.
What if you break your screen again after the repair?
The trick here is to try and prevent the screen from breaking again or insuring the screen to give you that peace of mind. It’s no secret that most modern smartphones are easy to break. The only real way of managing this problem is to make sure you have the best protection available or have a plan that will cover the screen costs in the event it gets damaged. If you have your screen fixed and break it again, your 6-month warranty will be voided. We always recommend to buy a good case, screen protector and consider taking out Fone Fix breakage cover after every repair.
Different types of screen damage
Lines, Colours or Discolouration
When your phone drops and the screen cracks, you may see a wonderful display of colours in various shapes, sizes and patterns. Sometimes the touch screen works, sometimes it doesn’t. In this state of disrepair you may also see slight flickering or experience erratic selections across the user platform.
The Black Blob
Yes, the black blob may display itself in various shapes and sizes. This blob may also change shape or grow in size. It’s simply not possible for this issue to just go away by itself. The layers of ink that are sandwiched together behind the display have ruptured and that ink substance is bleeding through onto the front glass. Don’t worry, this should not do any additional damage to your device as it would be an unusually rare occurrence for this ink to penetrate through the back of the screen onto the internal components inside.
Strange Water Markings
When you see markings of this nature, 99% of the time it will be caused from exposure to moisture or liquids. If the phone still works, make sure to backup all the info as water damage on microelectronics is not good, your phone may not have long to live.
Mysterious Yellow Patches
The yellow patches usually appear from a constant supply of pressure. That pressure produces the colour the same as when you push your thumb onto a computer or T.V screen and you can see a display of colours. The cause of this issue can be from issues internally or externally. For example, if your battery was to swell up or you had dropped the phone and internal components were dislodged or the frame had bent, this could be putting the pressure against the screen from behind causing the discolouration. Excessive heat can also be a cause, too much heat focused on one area and cause “burn marks” on the LCD. The most common cause is from broken front glass, the uneven shattered glass may be touching the LCD underneath, most of the time, when the pressure is removed and the screen is replaced, the yellow will disappear.
Materials and Manufacturing
The iPhone 6 screen is made up of many components. The hardened glass panel is the bit we touch but the capacitive touch module underneath is what responds to our touch. The Liquid Crystal Display unit gives us what we see on the screen and the LED backlight gives the screen it’s distinctive, bright look. The glass is made by a company called Corning based in Kentucky that has been involved in glass and ceramic making for 160 years. Their product, Gorrilla Glass has become synonymous with responsive touch modules but their products are used in air filtration, architecture and in the automotive industry to name a few. The touch module is manufactured by a US company called Broadcom. Located behind the glass, a gridwork of conductive strips respond to the change in current when you touch the screen. Apple has overcome existing limitations in touchscreen design to create a product that is able to accurately detect multiple touches. This allowed for features we now take for granted such as ‘pinch to zoom’. In the lead up to the release date it was widely believed that Apple was ending their relationship with Corning and the use of synthetic sapphire crystal. However on release it was revealed that the materials used were comprised of ‘ion-strengthened’ glass. Although Apple have not officially confirmed the manufacturer, it is most likely made by Corning. Since it’s release in 2007, the screen has been its most recognisable feature. It is also the feature that is most copied by Apple’s competitors.
How to prevent screen breakage
One of the challenges of manufacturing an unbreakable glass is that the harder a material the more likely it is to shatter. The softer the material the more likely it is to get scratched. Steve Jobs recognised the shortcomings of plastic and encouraged Corning to develop a prototype of what eventually became Gorrilla Glass. The best way to prevent breakage is to install a high quality tempered glass protector. Tempered glass varies in strength and can be up to 5 times stronger than the glass of the device. Tempered glass is also extremely scratch resistant and far more cost effective to change when damaged. In addition to tempered glass, we also recommend investing in a good case that has integrated impact protection material. This helps to shift the energy generated from impact away from the display. The EMF Aspen case has been designed specifically with this in mind incorporating D30 technology for extreme impact protection.
