Generally, iPhones are covered by a warranty[1] for one year from the date of purchase. Some iPhones, additionally, are covered by extended warranties available or insurance options through a wireless provider that offers additional protection in case of accidents.

Typical costs:

  • If an iPhone is under warranty, Apple repairs it for free. Although, if shipping is required, there could be a $7 fee.
  • If an iPhone is out of warranty, Apple will still offer repair services, and the cost varies based on the model. Apple charges[2] $149 to repair the original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4; $199 for the iPhone 4S; and $229 for the iPhone 5. If shipping is required, there's an additional $7 fee.
  • Third-party repair shops often are significantly less expensive than manufacturers. Repairing glass screens or LCD panels are the most commonly needed repairs and typically cost $25-$200, depending on the model of iPhone. Generally, older-model repairs cost less than newer-model repairs. For example, iHeart Repair offers iPhone repair services for $35-$180.
What should be included:
  • Depending on the service provided and the vendor, a customer should typically expect an iPhone to be returned in full functioning order with the customer's apps and documents accessible.
Additional costs:
  • Those with the know-how and the tools can make repairs to their own iPhones. Parts and tools are available through sites such as Amazon[3] or eBay[4] . Repair kits cost about $50-$100.
Discounts:
  • Websites such as iFixit offer a variety of instructional videos[5] that provide detailed how-to guides for repairing various parts on the iPhones.
  • LifeHacker offers a few tricks and tips that anyone can do[6] to correct minor problems on a phone.
