Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has recently started to offer screen replacement services for the iPhone 5s in some of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s stores across the United States. Todaysiphone, a website dedicated to Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iPhone, revealed this in one of its posts today.
The on-site screen replacement service is not guaranteed at every Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s store, but is available in quite a handful of them. The process of replacing the iPhone 5S screen is quite similar to the one used for iPhone 5C and iPhone 5 as it’s carried out by the same machine.
By providing on-site replacement of iPhone 5s Screen, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has definitely reduced costs and time it took to get an iPhone 5s screen replaced. Instead of being quoted $269 for replacement of the device and waiting for a week, now the customers can get their iPhone 5s screen replaced for $149 within an hour. The screen replacement is only applicable if the iPhone doesn’t have water damage, or any other serious breakage, in which case it’ll need to be sent to a specialized off-site repair center.
