What to do when your iPhone's screen breaks

Mobile
Once you recover from the initial shock of cracking your phone it's time to consider your options. Getting your screen replaced by Apple is relatively cheep and in some cases it might even be free. Apple charges $129 dollars for the iPhone 6s, and $149 dollars for the iPhone 6s Plus. If your iPhone is still under warranty and the damage is just a hairline crack, Apple might replace the screen for free. Since it could mean the glass was defective. Getting your screen replaced by Apple is the most reliable option. But if you're willing to take the risk, third parties can also fix your screen. You can also try and replace the glass yourself using a kit priced under $30. Just note that if you're still under warranty, choosing either one of these options will void it. In the end, you might just decide to deal with it. It won't look great, but if the cracks are minimal, just put a screen protector over the glass to prevent further cracks.
