Apple has taken on an all-new initiative. Apple is looking to decrease the cost of repairing its two famous iPhones. That is why it is offering on-the spot substitution and gadget fixing for its iPhones 5S and 5C. For display replacements the clientele with no warranty, will have to shell out about $149.
However, for the user base that has AppleCare+ warranty, it is approximately $79. Among the list of parts that have spare substitutes can be included: sound buttons, snooze/wake buttons, vibrating motors, backward facing camera and speakers. While the home button on the iPhone 5C is exchangeable, the Touch Identity Sensor on the iPhone 5S is not. This might be due to scarcity in supplies. Meanwhile defective parts will be replaced free of charge if you own an AppleCare+ warranty.
The fact that those individuals who do not have a warranty card must pay the necessary amount for repairs is a bleak reality. It is the price paid for not joining the others underneath the Apple umbrella. The fee for replacing a home button on an iPhone 5C is close to $29 for those who do not have warranty.
The initiative was first begun by Apple in June for iPhone 5 at same price for AppleCare+ customers. Of course, those who didn’t subscribe to AppleCare+ were also most welcome to replace iPhone 5 screen at $149. Apple has a reputation to maintain after all. It jealously guards its secrets and gives its clientele the best.
