Repairing the back glass on the iPhone 15 Pro is significantly cheaper than the iPhone 14 Pro. Apple has released Price estimate Its new phones over the weekend quoted repair prices of $169 for the 15 Pro and $199 for the Pro Max to replace the broken back glass of both phones.
That’s $350 less than the repair cost of last year’s models For the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max, Apple charged $499 and $549, respectively, to replace the back glass — frankly, outlandish prices that cost more than the new (much cheaper) iPhone SE.
Here’s what the current price looks like for this repair:
First, this new price has dropped Already seen once 9 to 5 MacThis is likely due to a major design change by Apple: in the latest phone models, the back glass can be removed and replaced independently of the rest of the phone. In previous models, the rear part was integrated deep into the housing of the device, which made repairs more difficult. I will fix it Called earlier iPhone back glass repair is “one of the most expensive and difficult repairs ever.”
Apple first made this change to the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus, and this year the company announced that it has also made it to the 15 Pro model. All in all, this is great news for those who have dropped their phones and are bothered by the spider webs of cracks.
Repairs, of course, are cheaper if you pay for Apple’s insurance plan, which costs $199 for two years of coverage for the new Pro and Pro Max, and then just $29 for a back glass repair. However, you must buy it in advance.
