   The iPhone 6 struck the right balance between size and weight, added key new features like Apple Pay, and improved foundational elements like battery life and storage capacity. The replacement components for the iPhone 6 are much more expensive than similar parts for prior models — so expensive in fact that many independent repair services cannot compete. “Due to the high cost of replacement parts, we are not yet offering iPhone 6 repairs. Why iPhone repair costs have soared swiftly?

 

1. Cost of replacing a front glass panel.

It doesn’t cost that much to replace only the glass on an iPhone 6, granted your phone's screen is cracked but the display and touch still work as usual. However, it is a difficult and high-risk repair, and you run the risk of further breaking your screen if you're not a professional or are unfamiliar to cellphone repair. A brand new and original iPhone 6 Glass Lens replacement is less than $10.

2. Cost of repairing a touch screen.

As the touch screen is hermetically attached to the LCD display, the whole LCD assembly should be replaced considering the difficulty and risk, if your iPhone 6's touch screen failed to respond after the damage it would be a much safer choice to replace the whole assembly. It costs about $90 to buy a replacement brand new original iPhone 6 LCD Screen and Digitizer Assembly with Frame.

3. Cost of repairing an LCD display.

The same difficulty and risk go into replacing an LCD as with replacing a touch screen. We recommend replacing the whole assembly if your iPhone 6's screen goes black or displays the wrong colors after the damage. A replacement iPhone 6 LCD Screen and Digitizer Assembly with Frame will cost you less than $100.

 

  If you want to replace the home button, you will need to buy the iPhone 6 LCD Screen and Digitizer Assembly with Frame and Home Button as well. This item is more expensive, about $120. However, with this item, the replacement work is much easier and less risky to perform. Please note that the replacement iPhone 6 home button supports all functions except for unlocking the screen with fingerprint, as the Touch ID sensor is tied to the unique logic board inside each iPhone.

 

  The iPhone-repair business is lucrative. Nearly one-third of iPhone users damaged their devices during 2016. What’s more, iPhones get abused more than iPads, only 10% of which were damaged. The cheapest way to fix a broken iPhone screen is to perform a DIY screen replacement. You can replace the screen on your iPhone fairly easily using online tutorials. Sometimes you will need to replace the screen and other times you will only need to replace the glass. Because the LCD screen technology is exquisite. Putting aside the fact that Apple is likely making a lot of money off iPhone screen repairs, why hasn’t it prioritized durability in its industrial design, as some of its competitors have? Because if Apple focused on building a more rugged product, it could likely make an unbreakable–or at least far less breakable–iPhone screen.

 

    Mobile displays are often used under relatively bright ambient light, which washes out the image colors and contrast, reducing picture quality and making it harder to view or read the screen. To be usable in high ambient light a display needs a dual combination of high screen brightness and low screen reflectance. The original and refurbished iPhone 6 LCD screen is different. The soaring screen cost is vary according to the several aspects: the performance, the grade, the warranty and so on. Our iPhone 6 LCD screen digitizer features the beautiful 4.7 inch Retina display with 1334-by-750 pixel resolution at 326 PPI. If you prefer DIY, we also include a set of free tools for installation. Furthermore, we offers the Grade R screen replacement to you. Our customer service and specialist will guide you to install or repair.
