Apple has quietly launched a home fix option for select iPhone markets

Apple has quietly launched a home fix option for select iPhone markets”

Before any onsite visit fee is added to the cost of a screen fix, Apple charges $129 (iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone SE, iPhone 6), $149 (iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, iPhone 8), $169 (iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus), $199 (iPhone XR, iPhone 11), $279 (iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone 11 Pro), and $329 (iPhone XS Max, iPhone 11 Pro Max) to replace the screen on an iPhone.

You can schedule a visit from Go Tech Services, an Apple Authorized Service Provider, through the Apple website. The assistance is now available in six cities across the US: San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Huston, and Dallas.

As per his report, Apple's new iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max will feature a display design that's similar to the iPhone 11 and other all-screen iPhones that have come before it, but it'll feature flat metal edges instead of rounded ones like current iPhones. The device, which is expected to introduce Apple in March 2020 and will replace the iPhone SE, is expected to be the iPhone 9 in this context.

It isn't clear exactly how much that additional charge will set customers back.

However, the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max were considerably more expensive, so if the iPhone 12 has different higher spec variants, it is not inconceivable that there are models that each sell more than $ 1,000 or £ 1,000.

Apple coming out with a budget smartphone was directly linked with the iPhone SE model and hence everyone started calling it as iPhone SE 2 initially. However, it has been an option for enterprise customers for some time.

The United States contacted Apple today for details about the service.

As the program rolls out, it remains unclear which devices are eligible for onsite services.

The service was first spotted by MacRumors last week on Apple's support site, which notes the following: "In select locations, onsite service may be available".

Should the program find success, it's likely that Apple will expand it to include more or all of its devices.

Apple Stores are all over the place in the U.S. And getting a faulty product repaired is usually as easy as booking a Genius Bar appointment.

In the meantime, a cracked iPhone screen is no longer a sentence for a trip to the Apple store.
