iPhone Screen Repair

cracked apple screenDOES YOUR iPHONE HAVE A CRACKED SCREEN? Of course accidents happen and your beloved iPhone slips out of your hand and lands screen down. Many of us at one point or another have experienced the annoyance of having a cracked screen. Having a cracked screen on your iPhone can make it hard to use or even read what the display is portraying. What do you do now? You could always reach out to the Apple screen repair or replace website but if your warranty doesn’t replace iPhone cracked screens and you didn’t obtain the insurance on the device, you may have to find other options. Just because you have a cracked screen on your iPhone doesn’t mean that you will need to replace the entire device.    

It is always worth the shot at attempting to repair your cracked iPhone screen on your own before you have to dish out any money for the repair or replacement. In this day and age, you can fix just about anything if you are provided with the right instructions. Follow these simple instructions for your DIY repair.

Scratched or Cracked Screen?

Repairing your iPhone display will rely heavily on how much damage has been inflicted on your device. If your iPhone’s screen is simply suffering from a few scratches, you are in luck! Scratches are a fairly easy fix which won’t break your wallet. Toothpaste, vegetable oil and baking soda are three home remedies that can be used to take your screen’s scratches away.

Toothpaste– Using a Q-Tip, rub your scratched screen in semicircles with toothpaste until you see your scratches disappear.  

Vegetable Oil– Apply some vegetable oil to a soft cloth and simply rub away your scratches. (Note: If you have one of the latest versions of your device such as an iPhone 6, you may want to avoid using any type of product on your device since these later versions are being made with an oleophobic coat which could ultimately wipe away and create more of a mess.)

Baking Soda–  You can easily make a thick paste which will wipe away your scratches. Stirring two part baking soda to one part water, will create a thick paste. Apply to a soft cloth and wipe away your scratches in a circular pattern until they disappear.

Packaging Tape Repair Method for Cracked iPhone Screen

If you cannot fix your iPhone cracked screen right away, you may want to try using packaging tape on your device. Assuming that only the glass is broken and the screen is still displaying images and responding to touch, you can do the following:

  1. Clean the screen as best as you can
  2. Place a wide piece of packaging tape over the screen
  3. Trim excess packaging tape around the screen

This should allow you to continue using your iPhone until you are ready to repair/replace your iPhone’s screen. The packaging tape will prevent the crack from growing and parts of the broken glass from falling off.

Get Your iPhone Repaired At Home

Depending on the computer repair shops in your area, some repair shops have technicians that are willing to travel. In the case that you are not willing to wait to have your screen repaired through mail-in repair or having to take it into a computer repair shop, these companies will send a technician out to your house for the iPhone screen repair. The technician will take your iPhone for approximately 2-3 hours and return it to you when the repair is complete.

William was really helpful towards solving the problems I had. I have a custom desktop and he was able to diagnose my problems and find a solution that didn't require any additional parts. It only took him about 20 minutes to solve the issue too! He was polite when I made silly IT mistakes and even helped me root cause with an additional issue for no extra charge. If I have more issues I will definitely return here.

I had an issue with a brand new computer. Will opened his shop on New Years Day just so I could drop it off! A few hours later I received a phone call, the problem was solved! I didn’t expect to hear back for a few days. Will is fast and efficient.
