There are many reasons why customers might choose third-party repairs over official repairs. This is because more often than not, third-party repairs tend to be cheaper as sometimes the parts they use might not be official, but if you’re not that fussed then we guess it’s not really that big a deal.


However more often than not, many companies aren’t too thrilled about customers turning to third-party services, and tend to warn that this will void your device’s warranty. The good news is that if you’re an iPhone user and you need to fix your screen, know that going to third-party services will no longer fully void your handset’s warranty.

This is according to an internal memo distributed by Apple, which has subsequently been “confirmed” by the folks at MacRumors with multiple sources. Prior to this, devices with screens that have been replaced by third-party displays/parts would not be eligible for authorized repairs under warranty. However the memo now states that customers can still get their authorized repairs under warranty once the device has been inspected and confirmed that there has not been any fraud or tampering after the display has been changed.

After which the repair process will proceed as per usual. However should the third-party repair somehow affect the repair’s success, Apple will require customers to pay the out-of-warranty cost to replace it.
