A few years back, roughly 23% of iPhone owners reported having either a broken or cracked screen.

We’ve all seen how sad an iPhone with a cracked screen looks, and many of us know how sad it feels to have one!

If your iPhone screen got scratched, cracked, or even shattered recently, then keep reading to learn the top five things you can do about it.

1. Watch Online Tutorials

Unless you are already skilled in phone repair, you shouldn’t take the DIY route if the damage to your screen is severe. However, if the damage is more cosmetic in nature (more scratches than cracks), then your first step should be to watch some online tutorial videos.

People have owned and broken iPhones for a long time now, and many of those people have been kind enough to share how they solved their problems with us on the internet. Sites such as YouTube have plenty of tutorial videos that will help you learn basic phone repair.

2. Repair it Yourself

Once you have learned the many steps to repairing or replacing your phone screen, you can begin the process of repairing it yourself.

If you choose to go this route, we recommend that even after you watch a tutorial, you find a list of instructions for your phone’s repair to keep in front of you. You want to make sure that you have this process down completely, as any misstep could lead to further damage to your device.

3. Send it to a Repair Service

If your device is too badly damaged or you don’t feel confident in repairing it yourself, another option is to send it to a repair service.

In certain cases, this may be cheaper than other options. There are plenty of great, affordable phone repair companies out there who will fix your phone quickly and at a low cost.

You can check out our listings to compare the rates and repair times of different companies in your area.

4. Just Have Apple Fix it For You

For those who have AppleCare+ or phones that are still under warranty, your best bet may be to just to take your device into your local Apple Store. The technicians there will be able to have your iPhone repaired in no time.

The cost of this repair will vary depending on which model of iPhone you have and whether or not you have AppleCare, so you will want to do some research online to see if this option is within your price range.

5. Or Just Buy a New Phone

If your device is older or very badly damaged, it may be better for you to simply upgrade to a new device.

Depending on your level of damage, these repairs can get pretty pricey, and it may not be worth it if your phone is too old.
