If your iPhone screen cracks or breaks because you dropped it or something fell on it you will want to get it fixed right away because even small cracks can cut your skin, or small pieces of glass will fall out and could cause injuries if someone comes into contact with the sharp edges of the broken glass.

If you have AppleCare+ it will cost around $79 not including tax to have the screen of your iPhone or other iOS device replaced although that price might be less or more depending on which device and model of that device you have. Also, if you don’t have AppleCare+, it will cost more.

To save money on screen replacement costs if your iPhone screen cracks or breaks, you can check into third party services outside of Apple. Some companies will charge around $30 and only take a half hour to replace the screen and get your iPhone or other iOS device back to you. Be careful to inspect the screen thoroughly before making payment though to make sure there are no ragged edges or imperfections in the screen.
