Q1: Can I still replace my screen if my iPhone is bent?

A1: If your phone is bent, a screen cannot be fixed successfully. This is because the new screen will require an even surface in order to bond properly with the phone and the size of the screen is always standard.

Q2: Will dents in my phone hinder screen replacements?

A2: Not all dents will hinder screen replacements. To know the intensity of the dents in your phone, place it in a level surface and see if you can deduce if the dents are large enough to interfere with the installation of the new screen.

The rule of thumb is that if the dents distort the phone’s contour, the new screen will not fit well.

Q3: My iPhone’s screen and glass back are damaged. What are my options?

A3: The best option is to replace everything. Although this might be expensive, it is the most reliable way to repair your phone. You can also replace the screen only and leave the glass back unattended. However, if the glass back has even a small crack, this crack will continue increasing and eventually you will have to replace the glass back.

Q4: How long does a screen repair take if I book it in? 

A4: Normally if no additional issues are diagnosis at our repair shop and the quote is accepted in store then the average repair takes about 2 hours depending your queue.

Here’s how much it will cost to replace your iPhone’s glass back from Apple Service Centre.

The rear panel of iPhone X is completely fixed making it hard to replace the retina. Still, replacement is possible without dismantling biometric face ID hardware. Because the back camera component is completely bonded with the metallic frame of the phone, it is even harder to replace the screen. Remember that the back glass of iPhone 4 is fused in an extremely thin metal plate on top of a frame which is made of plastic. A little mistake can mean the iPhone is ruined.

The new iPhone X camera bump, unlike the iPhone 8, lies on top of the rear glass. It is therefore not advisable to replace a broken back panel because of it is hard to completely scrap out the glass. 

Considering the above reasons, the cost of replacing the glass back for your iPhone X with metal frame is $115. Great care had to be taken because a little crack on the back glass can mean the whole chassis of your iPhone is rendered useless.

Instead of letting Apple service centre replace your iPhone housing which cost almost half your device price, you may want to consider a much cheaper option by bringing to our shop located at bugis junction for iPhone screen or chassis replacement.
