If you are in the unfortunate situation of holding a broken iPhone 6 screen, you’re likely to get shocked when it comes to repair pricing at this time. Your looking at upwards of $350 – which is roughly 25 percent of the original price, depending on if you’re locked into a contract or not. You’re probably wondering why this is so damn high, especially comparing to the ~$100 price tag on the iPhone 5/5S/5C models. Luckily, Juan Carlos is here to explain the economics of iPhone repair to you!
First, it’s important to realize that Apple themselves never have and never will ever produce replacement components like batteries and LCD digitizer displays. They would much rather have you When a device is first released into the market, many factories out east will replicate the components and market them as ‘original Apple parts’ which can be deceiving for those that repair these devices on an ongoing basis. Locating actual quality parts, waiting for them to arrive, learning to install them and stress testing the components (you want your battery to last more than a few months and not burn out right?), is a strenuous and time consuming process. Add to this the low supply of quality parts in the market, and you have a recipe for incredibly high prices, initially at least. Once enough demand has forced the factories to create higher quality replica components (read: higher quality is for example a sturdier glass overlay on your iPhone 6 digitizer assembly) you’ll likely see prices decrease radically as local iPhone repair outfits compete for your precious dollars.
