Apple starts in-store iPhone 5 display replacements for $149
Apple is now offering the option to have an iPhone 5 display replaced at an Apple Store for $149, says <em>MacRumors</em>. The service <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2013/06/03/apple-begins-offering-in-store-iphone-5-display-replacements-for-149/">costs</a> the same with or without AppleCare+. It may be most important for people without the plan, though, who otherwise have to pay $229 to have a non-defective iPhone replaced. With AppleCare+ active, a replacement is $49.<br /><br />Screen replacement is believed to be just one of a <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/286891==http://www.macnn.com/articles/13/05/10/more.repairs.for.damaged.iphones.phone.support.ext ended.more/" rel='nofollow'>number of AppleCare policy changes</a> taking effect in the next few months. By doing in-house repairs of iOS displays, Apple is expected to save as much as $1 billion or more per year. In the past the company has simply resorted to replacing broken hardware, which while a quick solution can deplete already limited stock at high expense.
