Before doing an iPhone screen replacement, there are five things you should look at.

The iPhone has certainly evolved since its inception a decade earlier, but the screen’s fragility remains unchanged. 

You probably know how simple it is to break an iPhone screen if you or someone you know has ever owned one. 

Things To Check Before Repairing Your iPhone Screen

If you’re reading this on a device with a cracked screen, the checklist provided by MacNDroid may be helpful.

The Correct Place For Screen Repair 

It’s crucial to be careful when selecting a business that claims to be able to repair cracked smartphone displays, as there are many out there. 

Discovering an authorized Apple service center should be your primary goal. Here, you can rest assured that you’ll receive the highest quality service for your iPhone, as these establishments have been screened and approved by Apple. 

Be cautious to read up on the shop’s reputation online before bringing your phone there for service.

Screen Quality

After selecting a phone repair shop, you need to make sure to ask about the type of replacement screen that is available. 

Screens that are not produced by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) are not as error-free or as robust as OEM screens.

OEM stands for an original equipment manufacturer. Screens that come directly from the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) are sold at a premium price, but they have a much longer lifespan and are of much superior quality overall.


A minimum warranty on the service should be provided by any respectable business. Most companies offer a one-year warranty on both their products and their labor. 

It’s impossible to stop someone from dropping their phone and breaking the screen again, but there should never be an issue making sure that the replacement parts and service provided are subpar. 

Stores that don’t back their work with a guarantee are more likely to sell cheap, faulty aftermarket screens.

Repairing Speed

The store you pick should be able to replace your screen in a timely manner while still accommodating your busy schedule. 

The time required to replace a screen should not exceed 2 days, though this may vary based on the repair shop’s current workload.

Keep in mind that shops that send your iPhone back to Apple directly may require more time than others to complete the repair due to shipping and processing.


A major factor in your final decision will be price. To select a repair service that fits within your budget, you should first inquire about the screen type and turnaround time they plan to utilize. 

There may likely be a tiny price premium at stores that use OEM equipment and provide warranties, but it shouldn’t be too much more than at other retailers.

Finally, when you’ve done everything we’ve outlined, pick the business that meets your needs.
