When rumors of a budget iPhone started to make its rounds on the Internet, many people were wondering, and probably anticipating, for a handset that will be able to deliver all of the bells and whistles of the standard issue iPhone, and yet cost just a fraction. Unfortunately, when the iPhone 5s was introduced alongside the cheaper iPhone 5c, the latter did not prove to be all that affordable. In fact, it can be rather expensive too when you think about it and compare it to other Android-powered devices. Still, I am quite sure that the iPhone 5c has its fair share of fans, and this might also translate to those who have damaged their iPhone 5c screens already. Apple has some news that might just lift you from the doldrums, which is the fact that damaged displays of the iPhone 5c can now be repaired in-store in any Apple retail store other than in Hong Kong or Canada.
As to how much the repairs will cost, that remains to be seen, but some estimates point to approximately $149 a pop assuming you have yet to sign up with AppleCare+, while it will cost you $79 if you do. As for the iPhone 5s’ damaged screen that requires repair, that remains on the horizon as of now. Bummer. The big question is, how did you damage your iPhone’s display in the first place?
