These days, there are MANY options in the market to solve a cracked screen problem on an iPhone.  This article is intended to give you some ideas of how to fix your cracked iPhone Screen quickly, inexpensively, and properly.

The first thing you are likely asking yourself is… Should I fix it myself or not?  There are many companies on the Internet selling parts and supplies for do-it-yourself repairs.  These videos and parts-sellers certainly make it look easy too.  The truth is… some repairs ARE easy, while others are NOT.  On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being most difficult), we would rate fixing your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus a “6” on a scale of difficulty.  The iPhone 5 would rate a 7 on scale of difficulty.  And an iPad, in ANY version is a 9 or 10 on scale of difficulty.

If you are not a Broadcom engineer or an electronics hobbyist, fixing electronics is just not easy.  The parts are tiny, numerous, and not easy to work with.  And if you mix up the parts and screws during your iPhone cracked screen repair, you can really get into trouble.  At a cracked iPhone repair Irvine store, we get people all the time who have botched their home repairs and come in (sometimes in tears) asking for us to try and fix their issues.  Sometimes, they can’t be fixed.  And even when they can, the customers end up paying more (sometimes much more) than if they had just come to see us first.

The overall challenge with do-it-yourself is… what do you do if the repair is not successful?  Usually, you must take it to a reliable repair shop, where you will need to pay again to complete the repair properly.  The other risk is, what do you do if you make a mistake doing your own iPhone cracked screen repair and render the iPhone useless?  Unfortunately, this happens more that you think, and when it does it it very unfortunate.
