As humans, we’re much better at adaptation than prevention. We’ve all been there — you drop your iPhone, go to pick it up, and pray that it’s not cracked. Most of the time, you’re safe.
But when your iPhone screen is cracked, there are a few options you have for fixing it. You can replace the entire phone, repair the screen yourself, or take it to a professional to have it repaired. This article will explore the pros and cons of each option so that you can make the best decision for your needs.
Should I replace my iPhone?
There are a few instances where replacing an iPhone is 100% needed. If your iPhone is water damaged beyond repair, if the battery won’t hold a charge, or if the phone doesn’t turn on, then you’ll need to replace it.
If your issue is with any of these three things, replacing your iPhone is really the only option you have. But if you’re dealing with a cracked screen, there are a few things you should take into consideration before making your decision.
The first thing to think about is cost. A new iPhone can cost anywhere from $700 to $1,300, depending on your model and whether you’re buying it outright or getting it on a payment plan.
And in many cases, a repair will work much better than a replacement.
So what instances would work better for repairing your iPhone?
Should I repair my iPhone?
A repair is generally going to be much cheaper than replacing your entire iPhone. For example, if you have an iPhone XR, a screen replacement will cost you around $170.
And, in many cases, a repair will work just as well as a replacement. If your cracked screen is the only issue you’re having with your phone, then a repair is the way to go.
Plus, there are tons of other issues your phone might have that require repairs that aren’t screen related. If your power button is jammed, your microphone isn’t working, or your speaker is crackling, taking it in for a repair is going to be the best option.
