Apple’s iPhone 5s Will Be a Part of the Screen Replacement Program Starting Monday
It has been reported that starting Monday, iPhone repair services will extend to have screen replacements of the iPhone 5s in Apple Stores. The move is being made in an effort to help reduce overall costs and turnover rates for the device. The screen replacement service for the 5s will be given the same options as the iPhone 5 and 5c.
The source that provided information regarding the new program notes that users will be given the option to replace iPhone 5s screens on devices that don’t have water damage or other failures. If serious damage is noticed in the device, customers will still be forced to send out their phones to either get serviced or replaced.
Customers who are already under the AppleCare+ warranty, will only have to pay $79 + tax whereas not much information was given for those who aren't covered. Screen replacements for the iPhone 5 and 5c currently cost $149 not including tax, and the iPhone 5s can be more costly if damage is done to the sapphire-covered Touch ID button. The iPhone 5c screen replacement was only included in the program starting early 2014.

I think Apple should offer Lifetime guarantee(or do they not have that much faith in they're products), they claim there products are that good; how about they put there money where they're mouth is!!!
Edit: It's time iPhones became waterproof!!! as well, it's retarded that I have to worry about my iPhone when it rains(because of water damage, Bullshite), I had a Nokia that didn't give a ****, if it got wet back in 1998

I agree that the iPhone should be water proof at least above surface. Screen replacement is a business all unto itself and EVERYONE is taking advantage. Go online everyone seems to be able to fix an iPhone screen that has been damaged. Would be a cool idea for the phone to come with some sort of emergency option when it hits water. Floatation device pops out of the head phone jack or something haha..keep my phone above water :]

As far as the music stop being played, it has to do with the app you're opening, not apple. Confront the company of those apps about allowing music to be backgrounded in app.

I think water proof is possible. My daughter has a cheap android phone and texts while in the hot tube. She held it under water, composed and sent a text to prove to me it was water proof.
It's a shame that a one 30 second drop in water can wipe out a $900.00 investment. Apple really needs to step up in this regard or at least have the next iphone water resistant.
