Apple vs. DIY Repair

Before performing any DIY repair, you should evaluate all your options. For those that purchased AppleCare+ for their iPhone 6, go straight to an Apple Store or call 1-800-APL-CARE to schedule a mail-in repair. Your warranty covers you for this kind of incident, and it will cost you far less.

If you don't have AppleCare+ but only have a minor crack in your screen and no damage to the frame, Apple may still be your best option. As of writing this, Apple charges $109 plus tax (USD) to replace the screen on an iPhone 6. Just be aware that if for some reason your iPhone 6 fails Apple's calibration process or your frame is bent, they'll charge you the full replacement price, which is currently at $299 plus tax.

For those that don't live near an Apple Store and don't want to mail in their iPhone 6, DIY repair may be the right choice for you. There are lots of reasons people choose DIY repair, including total cost. While Apple's replacement prices don't typically change, the cost to repair an iPhone drops drastically as the phone ages. The iPhone 6 is no exception so be sure to keep checking back on part costs. They can and will continue to fall.

If you've decided DIY is the right choice for you, continue on!
