A lot of people continue to believe that if their iPhone breaks, it can no longer be repaired. This isn’t true at all. In fact, you have multiple options available for you if you do happen to break it. More than likely, the issue is that you have cracked your screen, as this is what most people do. Whether that is the case or whether you have a different issue, there are three different things that you can do in order to get your precious iPhone back. And neither of these options will cost you anywhere near the price of buying a new iPhone. Let’s take a look!
- You Can Replace the Phone
The first option available to you is to actually replace your phone. However, unless you have an Apple iCare+ package, this will be a costly option. If you do have this package, then you don’t have to worry about anything because your phone will either be repaired or replaced. To do this, you simply have to contact the customer care center that you are linked to, and they will inform you of how to get your phone to them for repairs. They may, for instance, direct you to your nearest service outlet or, if there is none near you, provide you with details about where to send it to. The goal here is to make sure everything is convenient for you. However, even with the iCare package, you may not have your phone repaired or replaced for free. That said, Apple will keep you informed about the charges.
- You Can Go to a Local iPhone Repair Shop
You should be able to easily find a good iPhone repair Tampa FL company. If you do not have an iCare package, then this is a great alternative. Do make sure, however, they use Apple approved tools and replacement parts.
- Do It Yourself
Your final option is to fix the phone yourself. You need to be very careful about this, however. YouTube is filled with videos that can guide you through the process of replacing just about any part of an iPhone, and so long as you have the necessary tools, you should be able to follow those instructions clearly. However, by fixing the phone yourself, you will void any warranty still remaining on your device. Additionally, you must prepare yourself for just how fiddly an iPhone actually is, and how much you will struggle getting the screws in and back out for instance. Of course, the benefit of this is that it won’t cost you much at all. The YouTube videos are accessible for free, and the tools you need tend to be quite affordable as well.
As you can see, there are alternatives to buying a new iPhone out there, which means you can save yourself a bit of money. But do be careful, however, that you don’t actually make the damage any worse. A little mistake could mean a totally destroyed phone.
