Apple to start repairing iPhone 5c screens at Apple Stores next week

iPhone 5c Apple Store Screen Repairs

Apple might finally have an in-house solution for the countless iPhone users who always manage to find a way to crack their screens. 9to5Mac reports that Apple Stores will begin offering iPhone 5c screen repairs next Monday, January 20th. Previously, Apple’s only method for dealing with cracked screens was to replace the phone entirely, which could be extraordinarily expensive without a warranty, and would also take a fair amount of time. On the other hand, a screen repair will reportedly cost $150 and could be completed within an hour. The worldwide launch of the iPhone 5c screen repair program will begin next week, but repairs for the iPhone 5s are still in a limited rollout stage.
