The iPhone is a product manufactured by Apple and came about due to Apple’s owner, Steve Jobs, asking his engineers to develop a touch screen for a mobile device, which of course they did and the result was the first iPad. This was a device that was similar to other tablets except it had a touch screen but after its production, Steve Jobs said that he believed that the future for Apple did not really depend on tablets but thought that cell phones was a better product to depend on for the future and so the iPhone was developed. Since then there has been several versions of the iPhone released and they are always very popular. One criticism that has been made about the iPhones is that their screens are too susceptible to scratching or breaking. Although with each new release of an updated iPhone, a promise is made that the next one will have a screen which cannot be scratched, this is one promise which has not been kept up to this time. This of course means that at some point, an iPhone owner may have to have their screen replaced. New phones will often come with a warranty and so should be repaired for free but the warranties never include accidental damage which is usually the reason why a screen gets scratched. That means that in order to get your screen replaced, you will have to pay the iPhone dealership you take it to, to replace the screen for you. There are a couple of problems with this and the first one is you would have to live close to a dealership in order to make it practical to take it there and secondly, it could be quite expensive. Another option that Apple give you is to post the phone to them and they will fix it but most people do not like the idea of their phones going through the postal system, especially as they have personal information on them and secondly because they never know how long it may be before they will see it again. Some iPhone dealers, if the repairs will take longer than the scheduled appointment is for, will loan you a replacement phone until yours is ready but of course you will still be anxious to get your own phone back. There are other iphone screen repair services available though and some of those offer a reliable and fast service with at least one company in London offering a service within 2 hours of pick-up to delivery back to where you are. This can be a good and convenient option and is often cheaper than taking the phone to an authorized dealer. The third option is to change the screen yourself and instructions available on the internet claim that this can be done in as little as 5 minutes once you have the replacement screen. You can also find online places where you can buy screens for most phones including iPhones.
