This morning, Apple has began offering in-store screen replacements for its iPhone 5 as part of a move to lower repair cost. A screen replacement will cost customers $149 with or without AppleCare+. Apple says that the repairs are available for cracked or broken displays as well as screens that experience multi-touch issues.

This change comes after rumors first surfaced last month during a town hall session where Apple revealed that it would begin in-house repairs that would effectively save the company approximately $1 billion per year. The $149 pricing plan falls in line with AppleCare+ pricing which cost $99 up front and $49 for each replacement.

[Editor's note: As an iPhone owner who paid for AppleCare+, I would expect to pay just $49 for the repair as that is what is stipulated in AppleCare+. It's not clear if this is what Apple will do, however.]
