9 Things To Do With Broken iPhone Screen

Buying a new iPhone is no trivial matter.

Excitement about the new iPhone launch in the Year 2020 focusing on the allegedly "low" price tag of $399 is missing the point. People have already invested big money in their existing iPhone, and that's still a lot of money for many people.

Fortunately, if you have a broken iPhone screen, you don't have to run out and buy a new phone just yet. Read on to learn what to do next.

Things To Do With Broken iPhone Screen

9 Things To Do With Broken iPhone Screen

1. Protect Your Phone

When you've dropped your iPhone and broken your screen, what's the last thing you want to hear? You don't want somebody making comments about how you could have prevented it from happening.

Skip this section if you're too emotional to take some good advice. Read on and you may save yourself some money and grief the next time your screen cracks.

Buy a durable case for your iPhone. They can be inexpensive, cool, and effective at protecting your screen. Smartphone cases can also double as credit card holders, a place to store a few dollars and make a style statement as well.

Now, you've got a broken iPhone screen. What should you do about it?

2. Broken iPhone Screen Safety

Shards of broken glass can cut you, get under the skin on your hands, or even harm your face. After all, you probably hold your iPhone up to your ear and face, so that's not a safe place for broken glass.

Check the damage to see if any of the glass is loose. If the screen is completely shattered, cover the screen with clear tape to limit any further damage to the iPhone or to you. If the damage is not major, keep it under review and check to see if it worsens.

3. Do Nothing

Many people with a damaged iPhone screen do nothing about it. They probably think that the iPhone is working fine. What if there's a little crack on the screen?

A broken screen is a weak point on your iPhone. Once the screen is broken, your iPhone is at risk of major and more costly damage.

Moisture can get in through the hairline cracks into your screen. This can seriously damage the sensitive electronics inside your iPhone. If you were to drop your iPhone, the already weakened screen may suffer greater damage.

It's well worth having your iPhone screen fixing. It's not too difficult to do and it need not be too expensive.

4. Check Your Warranty

You may have a warranty or insurance that covers you for some or all of the cost of the repair. Check what cover you have in place.

An AppleCare+ warranty may cover you for some of the cost of a screen repair. You will probably have to pay something towards the cost of the repair in any event. Prices vary, so check with your nearest Apple Genius shop.

You may have accidental damage cover as part of some other home contents insurance or as part of your phone contract. Check these out to see if you have already paid for the repair through an insurance premium. Don't pay twice.

5. Apple Repair

If you have AppleCare+, you may consider having the screen repair completed by Apple, but do check the prices. It can vary depending on the extent of the damage and the model of the iPhone.
Having your iPhone repaired by Apple does mean that your iPhone warranty will remain un-voided. That might be important to you if your iPhone is new and one of the more expensive models. If it is already out of warranty and you don't have AppleCare+, one of the other options may be your preferred choice.

6. Local Repair Shop

There are many local repair shops that offer iPhone repairs. Included in the range of repairs they do is a screen replacement service. They will often be much cheaper than the Apple Genius option.

It's important to remember that you may be invalidating your iPhone warranty if you get a repair at a local shop. If this is not a problem for you, having a convenient local repair shop do the repair quickly and inexpensively is an attractive option.

Are all local iPhone repair shops the same? No. You should do some research before taking your iPhone to a random local repair shop.

Check out reviews online. Look for a repair shop that has a good record for things like screen repair. A local shop that fails to deliver good quality repairs will soon get a poor reputation, so avoid new and untested repair shops.

7. Mail It In

There are screen repair services that offer a mail-in service. These may be a good option if you live in a remote location since mail might be your only option.

The downside is that it takes time and you'll be without your iPhone while it's being repaired and shipped. It might be cheap, but the cost of living without an iPhone is high in other ways.

8. Do It Yourself (DIY)

Are you the sort of person who is happy to turn your hand to practical tasks? Perhaps you do repairs around your home or car. You might consider doing the iPhone repair yourself.

Be warned. Repairing an iPhone is a specialized and delicate task to take on. It's difficult to avoid doing further and more serious damage in the process of getting your screen off.

The tools you need are not found in the average toolbox; they are specialized tools. If you do inadvertently damage your iPhone, Apple will not fix your mistakes for you.

9. Take Care

Keep good care of your iPhone and you won't have to deal with a repair. If you do have a broken iPhone screen, there are solutions as we've listed above. Follow this guide and find the right solution for you.
