9to5Mac:

The crucial service’s debut is currently scheduled for Monday, August 4th. This upcoming rollout will mark an official launch as a few stores in the U.S. have piloted iPhone 5s screen repairs over the past several months.

Apple began in-store screen repairs on the iPhone 5c in January, and began replacing other iPhone 5s and 5c parts in late 2013.

Screen replacements will run customers without AppleCare+ approximately $150 per repair. The price for completely replacing a broken iPhone 5s: $269, so this is decidedly a more affordable option.
