How Much Does It Cost to Repair an iPhone?

Published by Handy Work on

The Apple iPhone is an expensive gadget. So if you must have one and you’ve been using it for a few years, the best option is to get it fixed or repaired instead of buying a new model. This will save you a lot of money, especially if the device still works fine even after the screen has been damaged.

But how much does it cost to fix an iPhone? If you live in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia or Philippines, here are some of the most common problems that can be fixed on your iPhone:

Broken screen

If your iPhone has a cracked screen that you can still see through but requires replacement due to cosmetic considerations only, then expect to pay between $40 to $200 depending on where you get it from. A typical service center like Mobile Air will charge about $90 to $150 for this kind of repair. You may also opt for self-service options like iResQ which will only charge around $40 for a replacement screen or glass cover on your phone.

Damaged camera lens/flashlight/speaker

If your camera lens or flash is damaged, you can avail of a replacement for around $50-$80. The replacement of speakers in your iPhone will cost you around $30 to $70 depending on where you get it from.

A broken front-facing camera will cost you a little more, around $100-$120. But if the backside camera of your iPhone is damaged, it will cost you closer to $200 to repair them all at the same service center or repair shop since they are not separate parts unless they are independent problems.

Damaged home button

If your iPhone’s home button is damaged and needs replacement, it will cost you around $50 to $70 at a service center. If you’re looking for cheaper alternatives, iResQ will only charge you around $35 for the same repair which includes a new battery as well.

But if you want to do it yourself, this can be fixed for only about $5 to $20 using a replacement kit or from a local supplier.

The same applies with the charging port as well as they are considered basic repairs that don’t require special tools or advanced knowledge to fix them if you know how to take apart your iPhone.

Apple may have sold you an expensive device with a high resale value but if it’s still working fine after years of use, then instead of spending on new models, just fix it up and keep using it for as long as you can.

Keep in mind that at some point, all electronic devices stop working. But if your iPhone is still functional, consider getting it fixed instead of buying a new one because no matter how expensive your phone is, spending more on getting them fixed will definitely save you more than what you’ve spent in purchasing them in the first place.
