Apple's screen damage repair service differs in cost based on the type of phone and coverage plan selected, as of 2015. Users with Apple Care receive coverage for two incidents with a $79 service fee. Users without Apple Care are charged $109 for an iPhone 6, and $129 for the 6 plus, 5s, 5c and 5.

Otherwise, iCracked.com, a 3rd party phone repair website, also offers screen damage repair. This company sends a technician to the user, allowing at-home repairs. Its prices depend on the type of device that needs to be repaired, but average costs are $99 for screen repair with a 99-year warranty.

Screen repair can also be done by the user. By purchasing a screen display assembly from iFixit.com, users can repair their phones in the comfort of their own homes by following easy-to-read instructions if they are confident in their technical abilities. Users can purchase an iPhone 5s screen assembly for $64.95 from the company, which comes with the LCD panel, digitizer and all the necessary tools to complete the replacement.
