Apple Stores Prepping to Offer In-Store iPhone 5s and 5c Screen Replacements

Apple is reportedly making preparations to begin hardware repairs for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in its retail stores. Apple is said to be supplying its stores with special machinery required to replace the touchscreens on both devices.

Apple is gearing up to soon begin hardware repairs for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in its chain of retail stores, according to sources with knowledge of the upcoming initiative. These sources say that Apple Stores will be able to replace several parts of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c on-site, meaning that Apple will no-longer need to fully replace iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c units with damage or other problems… 

The machines will be used specifically to calibrate the displays. A screen replacement for the devices runs $149 for each device, considerably cheaper than replacing the entire device.

The Apple Stores will also have the capability to replace volume buttons, vibration motors, the rear-camera, and the speaker systems on the iPhone 5s and 5c. Home Buttons on the iPhone 5c will be replaceable, but the Touch ID-enabled button on the iPhone 5s will not, as yet, be in-store repairable.

Devices covered under AppleCare needing replacements due to defects will be repaired free of charge, if they are not covered under warranty, there will be fees for individual parts replacements.

In-store screen replacements are reportedly taking between 30 minutes and 1 hour.

Apple began in-store screen replacements and other repairs for the iPhone 5 earlier this year, and it has proven to save both their customers and the company time and money.

9to5Mac’s source report that replacement parts, iPhone screen calibration machines, and training manuals for performing the repairs have begun arriving at some Apple retail stores.
