Most of the iPhone users who have dealt with a cracked iPhone back glass admitted that their hearts shattered when their iPhones fell on the ground. You must be feeling the same right now. Well, don’t worry, it was meant to happen someday. And to be honest, getting it repaired is not that much of a hassle if you have comprehensive knowledge. So, here you will find out iPhone back glass repair cost, options, and all that you need to know.

But before that. Let’s talk about the iPhone back glass a bit. Apple first used back glass in the iPhone 4. However, it was not until the launch of the iPhone 8 series that they introduced wireless charging. Due to its low conductivity, glass enables wireless charging. All iPhone models from the iPhone 8 support Qi wireless charging (up to 7.5 watts) and iPhone 12, 13, 14, and 15 series support MagSafe wireless charging (up to 15 watts). So the back glass of your iPhone is not just to make it look more sleek. There’s a greater purpose.

Therefore, don’t even think about a DIY repair. It can damage the iPhone even further. It is better to just simply put a back cover and hide the cracks than to try repairing it yourself. But even with a back cover, there’s always a risk of the crack spreading or water seeping in. So it’s better to get it replaced by a professional.

iPhone back glass repair options and costs

No matter which city you live in, go to the nearest market with mobile repair shops, and you will get an assurance that your iPhone back glass will be replaced and it will work the same. But one thing you don’t know is that these local mobile repair shops don’t have access to Original Equipment Manufacturers or OEM spare parts. These are genuine Apple spare parts and if these are not used in any repair work, the quality of the iPhone might deteriorate and it can affect the resale value and warranty. So we are keeping the local repair shops out of the equation. So below you will find only the most trusted options.
