Apple is set to start replacing broken iPhone 5S displays in the US and Canada at Apple Stores. Sources say that the screen replacement program will kick off on August 4, which is this coming Monday. A few test locations have been replacing screens for the iPhone 5S over the last few weeks.
Owners of the cheaper iPhone 5C smartphone were able to get screens replaced at Apple Stores starting last January. Screen replacement for the iPhone 5S isn't a cheap undertaking.
Getting a damaged screen replaced will cost $150 per repair. Before the screen replacement program was available, the only way to get your phone fixed from Apple if you broke the screen was to replace the entire smartphone for $269.
