What to do if you break the back glass on your iPhone

Apple has been using glass on the back of its iPhones for some time. However, it is characterized by high fragility... We will advise you how to save more than € 500 when repairing.

In 2017, Apple introduced its iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus models. Among other things, these phones also brought a novelty in the form of very practical wireless charging. But in order to do so, the metal on the back had to be replaced by glass. The glass back cover has since been a common feature of all the following models:

  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone 8 Plus
  • iPhone X
  • iPhone Xs
  • iPhone Xs Max
  • iPhone Xr
  • iPhone 11
  • iPhone 11 Pro
  • iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • iPhone SE 2

The innovative look and convenient charging have pleased a really large number of Apple customers. However, the new rear cover was much more prone to breakage, and many customers were no longer pleased with the manufacturer's solution in the event of the broken rear glass.

How to avoid high costs?

In the case of the broken rear glass, Apple offers only the so-called "Swap" option. This means that the damaged device will be replaced with a new one, but it is necessary to pay a considerable amount. For example, for the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone 11 Pro Max, this amount exceeds the € 700 limit. Considering that the problem is often only visual, this amount is too high.

Fortunately, there is another, much more affordable option. The customer can have the cracked rear glass replaced by us at FixServis.

Approach

Replacing broken rear glass is incredibly time-consuming and virtually impossible without professional tools. At FixServis, thanks to our rich experience and the necessary equipment, we can implement it in just one day.

Approach:

1. Separating the rear glass from the phone body

  • A special device neutralizes the glue that attaches the rear glass to the body.


2. Remove the rear glass

  • Using professional tools, the technician carefully removes every piece of broken glass.

3. Clean the phone from adhesive residue

  • The last remnants of the glue are laser-separated from the device.
  • The technician then removes the residues manually.
