Apple appears to be offering in-store display replacements and other repairs for both the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C according to 9to5Mac, continuing Appleís effort to lower repair costs. According to the publication:
These sources say that Apple Stores will be able to replace several aspects of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c on-site, meaning that Apple no-longer needs to fully replace iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c units with damage or other problems.
Part replacements due to defects will be free as long as the device is under AppleCare warranty. However, devices that arenít under the AppleCare warranty plan will have repair fees specific to each part, such as a $29 surcharge for a Home button replacement on the iPhone 5C.
For those of you who didnít already know, in June, Apple began offering in-store display replacements for the iPhone 5 for $149 for AppleCare+ and non-AppleCare+ subscribers. The recent in-store part replacements are for the current-gen devices.
