How much does an iPhone screen replacement cost?
Edgar Cervantes / Android Authority
It’s the worst feeling; seeing your expensive iPhone take a fall and picking it up to find a cracked screen. As gut-wrenching as this scenario is, it’s not the end of the world. You can get the screen replaced, even if it may cost you a good amount of money. But how much does an iPhone screen replacement cost? It depends on where you get the device fixed.
The iPhone screen replacement cost will vary depending on your iPhone model and where you get the service. If you go straight to Apple and have an iPhone 13 or iPhone 14 series device, prices range between $229 and $379. You only have to pay $29 if you have an Apple Care Plus plan, though.

Do I have to get my iPhone repaired by Apple?
Robert Triggs / Android Authority
You aren’t forced to have Apple replace your iPhone screen. We have the right to repair, after all. There are also Apple Authorized Service Providers. There aren’t many, and they are usually large stores like Best Buy, but there are some smaller participants. Additionally, Apple has an Independent Repair Provider program for those who want to provide repairs out of warranty.
Of course, there is also an excess of third-party technicians and shops that will do screen replacements for you. Apple has become more accepting of these businesses, and will actually respect your warranty as long as any future damage isn’t related to, or caused by, what the third-party tech repaired (in this case, the screen). That said, we would be very wary about taking iPhones to third-party repair businesses.
While they may be knowledgeable and capable, there’s also the chance some aren’t. We’ve also heard plenty of horror stories about such businesses not using genuine screens and parts. And even if they do, some users have experienced Face ID problems and other issues. We won’t tell you not to go to these, but we also won’t advise that you do. If you choose to do so, just do your research, read reviews, and do everything you can to ensure you’re working with a good business.
If you want to save some money, you also have the option of doing the repair yourself. Yes, Apple allows this and supports it! More on this later in the article.
How much does it cost for Apple to replace my screen?

The price to replace a screen depends on your phone model. Let’s take a look at some prices from the latest iPhone releases.
|iPhone model||Price to replace screen|
iPhone 14 Plus
iPhone 14 Pro
iPhone 14 Pro Max
iPhone 13 Mini
iPhone 13 Pro
iPhone 13 Pro Max
iPhone SE (2nd generation)
iPhone SE (3rd generation)
What if I have Apple Care Plus?
Those with an Apple Care Plus plan will only pay a flat fee of $29 to replace their screens. If you want to find a good Apple Care alternative, we have a list of the best phone insurance options available.
Those with an Apple Care Plus plan will only pay $29 to replace tan iPhone screen.
How much does it cost for Apple Authorized Service Providers to replace my screen?
Edgar Cervantes / Android Authority
What about Apple Authorized Service Providers? Surely, they charge more, right? The cost of operation is not the same for Apple compared to some of these smaller authorized stores. This means that they often have to charge more. However, this is not a set rule that applies to all service providers. Best Buy is one of the biggest Apple Authorized Service Providers, and its prices are actually identical to Apple’s. Likewise, those with Apple Care Plus will only pay $29 for iPhone screen replacements at Best Buy.
The short answer is: expect to pay very similar prices, but some authorized shops may charge a bit more.
Is there anything cheaper?
As mentioned in the first section of this guide, you can opt to go with third-party technicians and repair shops. These will often be cheaper. For example, the one closest to my house will charge $145 to replace an iPhone 13 screen. That’s much less than Apple’s $279. As mentioned before, though, we wouldn’t recommend these services. We’re sure there are some good ones, though. Just do your research first.
You can also replace the screen yourself!

Apple announced its Self Service Repair program in late 2021. This basically allows users like you and me to make an iPhone screen replacement ourselves. Those willing to take matters into their own hands will get a manual with step-by-step instructions, dedicated tools, and components. You can buy them straight from selfservicerepair.com/order. Also, go to Apple’s Self Service Repair page for more details.
Just keep in mind it isn’t exactly cheap to do this, either, even if it will cost less than taking it to Apple or an Authorized Service Provider. Let’s say you want to fix an iPhone 13 Pro Max screen. You’ll have to pay $311.96 for the repair kit. Apple will the refund you $33.60 if you return the broken screen. This totals $278.36. It’s still cheaper than the $379 you would have paid Apple to do this, but it isn’t exactly the deal of your life.
Not necessarily, but you should try to get any repairs straight from Apple or one of its Authorized Service Providers. This will ensure you get the best service and genuine parts.
Apple has become very understanding about third-party repairs. Your warranty won’t necessarily be void if you fix an iPhone with a third-party shop. Still, Apple likely won’t cover any future repairs if the third-party repair causes the damage. If it does, it will often charge the standard non-warranty fee. This is especially the case if the technician uses non-genuine parts.
Yes! Apple has launched its Self Service Repair program in some markets. It will provide manuals, tools, and genuine parts for you to take matters into your own hands. Apple will actually respect the screen warranty, too, as long as you got all the authorized equipment and do things correctly.
Those with an Apple Care Plus plan will only have to pay a flat fee of $29 per screen replacement. This is regardless of the iPhone model.

Apple’s iPhone Warranty
According to Apple, their “Limited Warranty for iPhone covers your iPhone for one year. Warranty service for eligible repairs is available at no charge for twelve months from the date of original retail purchase (“date of purchase”).
Check your purchase date
If you bought your iPhone from anyone other than an authorized iPhone reseller or didn’t register your phone when you bought it, you may not be able to use the warranty on it, because Apple has no official record of the purchase date with your name in it.
Out of warranty repair
The Apple support page says you might still be able to have Apple fix it through their Out-Of-Warranty (OOW) service—for things like screen burn or “an iPhone that has failed due to damage or liquid damage.
See Apple’s Repair Terms and Conditions for further details. Refer to this article to check if the Liquid Contact indicator on your product has been triggered.” To find where to bring your phone for OOW service options, call your local carrier and they can direct you to iPhone repair shops near you.
If you’ve only just bought your phone, or are about to buy one, and you are historically talented at dropping your phone, your best option is to sign up for the AppleCare+ plan. “Both AppleCare+ and AppleCare+ with Theft and Loss extend that coverage1 up to two years and give you additional features such as 24/7 tech support and accidental damage coverage.” — Apple.com
Apple iPhone Screen Repair Costs
For Apple to repair your iPhone that’s out of warranty, prices start at $129 for older phones and go up to $329 for brand-new models. Before Apple repairs your screen, you’ll need to carry out their pre-service instructions so you can protect your information. It involves things like having your ID and proof of purchase ready and, if you’re mailing it in, erasing your device. Read more about that here.
In-store – The best part of having Apple repair your screen is that they have genuine Apple parts and all repairs are backed by Apple. It will probably be a same-day repair.
Mail it – If it’s too much of an inconvenience to get to the store, mail it instead. Apple will send you a box to send it in. It will take 7–9 days before you get your fixed phone back.
Third Party iPhone Screen Repair Costs
Be aware that if anyone other than Apple or an Apple service provider opens up your phone, any warranty or partial warranty you have will no longer apply. But if all your warranties have run out, a third-party service can be extremely helpful with prices that average $80 to $140 for screen repair.
Some will examine your phone for free to let you know exactly what’s broken and how much it will cost to repair. When you drop your phone, even though it might look like only the screen has cracked, there could be a lot more that’s damaged inside the phone—speakers, dock, batteries, screen, cameras, etc.
Some shops will give you a same-day repair service while others will take a day or two. Obviously, it depends on how much work your iPhone needs to be fully functional again.
Mobile iPhone Repair Service
This can be one of the easiest ways of repairing your screen, and you don’t even have to leave your house or work to do it. Custom Computer Experts in Sheffield Lake, OH, say, “If you can’t come to us, we can come to you for $99.99 plus parts or software. $25 travel fee will be included in the final invoice for travel of 25 miles or more.”
Most third-party repair shops give you a thirty-day warranty on their repair work.
Some repair shops are better than others because they focus exclusively on Apple products and are able to buy repair parts in bulk. iHospital Fowler say they don’t “only repair devices but also upgrade these devices and offers a full range of accessories for them. … It has trained all of its iHospital Doctors to focus on one family of products, Apple.”
DIY iPhone Screen Repair Kits Costs
There is also the option of repairing your screen yourself with kit repair prices ranging from $40 to $80.
If you are still sure you can stay alive and not damage the iPhone further by fixing it yourself, here’s how to do it.
Watch YouTube videos on the process until you feel like you know what you’re about to do.
Order the DIY kit—a combo of the replacement screen, tiny tools, cables, and an instructional booklet. Here’s an article on how that turned out for one Consumer Reports reporter.
In summary, if your iPhone is in warranty and the screen needs to be repaired because of an internal problem, have Apple fix it. If it’s not in warranty, we recommend having a mobile iPhone repair technician meet you to do the work, as most of the repair options seem to cost about the same regardless of where you bring it, and the convenience of having them come to you is amazing.

Is the diagnostic free?
Yes, before any manipulations, we will conduct a comprehensive diagnosis for free: without it, it is impossible to accurately determine the cause of the breakdown and claim that there are no hidden damages, due to which simply replacing the iPhone 11 display will not be enough. In some cases, it turns out that the problem is a software failure, and flashing will be much more budgetary and will allow you to save the “native” screen. You will not have to pay for this procedure even if you refuse service with us.
What determines the price of an iPhone 11 screen replacement?
You may have noticed that there are two prices on the page. Repair costs depend on the materials used and we offer two options for this operation. You can install a copy-grade part: it has slight differences in color calibration from factory Apple display panels, but has a similar resolution and lifespan. Many people prefer this option because it is more budget friendly.
iPhone 11 display replacement (original) also available. Such components are completely identical to those that Apple puts in its smartphones, but their cost is much higher. However, their use is justified for customers who want the refurbished phone to be as good as new in color.
Can’t make up your mind? Ask the master to show both parts and clearly explain the differences. It will help you make the best decision: we never lean towards more expensive repairs and leave the final word to you.
Can it be cheaper?
The services of the Planet iPhone network regularly hold special offers that allow you to save money. For example, the price of replacing a display on an iPhone 11 will be lower if you submit a repair request through the site or if you need several procedures. Learn more about current offers from employees or in the “Promotions and discounts” section.
How long will it take?
Replacing the screen on an iPhone 11 (original or copy – doesn’t matter), as a rule, takes about an hour, including diagnostics. Delays can be caused by a lack of free craftsmen or the need to deliver a part from another workshop if they run out on the spot. You will be warned about extended terms in advance: we value the time of our clients and do not make promises that we are unable to fulfill.
What if I don’t have time to go to the service?
iPhone 11 display replacement is carried out not only in the salon, but also on the road: the master will arrive at your address and diagnose the phone. If this procedure is really necessary, he will perform it on the spot and issue a warranty card: you won’t have to go for documents.
In addition, you can send the phone to us by courier or by mail (relevant for residents of the regions). Check with staff for details.

Do you provide a guarantee?

It covers both materials and labor: in this way we protect customers in the unlikely but still possible case of defective parts. If you find any problems during the operation of the equipment, contact the Service Center with a warranty card: we will re-diagnose the phone and, if the breakdown was not caused by the user’s actions, we will fix it at no extra charge.

When iPhone needs to be repaired
Most often, iPhone repairs are required due to mechanical damage to the display, case, or some internal component, which can occur as a result of a strong blow or dropping the phone on a hard surface. In addition to the situations described, the display may crack if strong pressure is applied to it. A common cause of iPhone breakage is the penetration of water or other liquid into the case. Using a non-original charger and the wrong battery charging mode can certainly also lead to problems with the battery and charging connector.

- Spilled coffee or took a dip in the pool with the owner
- Using a non-original charger
