If you drop your iPhone 5s and crack its screen, you’ll be able to take it to an Apple retail store location.
Per 9to5Mac, Apple will finally begin offering iPhone 5s screen replacements in its official U.S. and Canada retail stores via its Genius Bars in the coming days, according to several sources.
The service’s debut is currently scheduled for Monday, August 4th. This upcoming rollout will mark an official launch as a few stores in the U.S. have piloted iPhone 5s screen repairs over the past several months. Apple officially rolled out iPhone 5c screen repairs in January, and it began replacing other iPhone 5c and 5s parts late in 2013.
The screen replacements will retail for approximately US$150 per repair, and this is more affordable than the US$269 price of completely replacing a broken iPhone 5s.
If you happen to go through the repair process at an Apple Store location and have any feedback, please let us know in the comments.
