Apple has confirmed its pricing for iPhone XR repairs and it’s surprisingly reasonable. Phone XR doesn’t cost much more than repairing an iPhone 8.

As Motherboard notes, aftermarket fixes for iPhones are often a less expensive, and sometimes the only option nearby.

Rarely is tech advice this cut and dried: If you bought an iPhone in 2016 or earlier, make an appointment at a Genius Bar as soon as possible. An Apple store or repair shop will pop the hood of your iPhone 6, 6s, SE or 7 and swap out the battery. Like a jalopy after a Jiffy Lube, a three-year-old iPhone with a fresh battery will not only run longer, chances are it will also run faster. Just hurry up and do it.

This is going to cost Apple a lot more than just overtime at the Genius Bar. Once your phone get a fresh battery and the processor kicks back to 100 percent, there’s a chance you might not feel the need to upgrade your iPhone for a while. One analyst, Mark Moskowitz of Barclays, expects the battery offer could cause Apple to sell 16 million fewer new iPhones.
Still, inexpensive battery replacement is the right thing for Apple to do. A good reputation is its best selling point in an era where smartphone features are reaching parity. Battery life is most people’s No. 1 complaint about their phones, and maintenance is a long-overdue part to smartphone ownership.

Most of my local stores are booked for days. And just because you have an appointment doesn’t mean you’ll get your replacement right away. Apple could improve this process.

Apple is rolling out a change to its policies for iPhone screen repair, in a note seen by 9to5Mac (first shared with iMore). Apple is dropping the need for repair centers to use calibration hardware when conducting screen repairs for iPhone 6s and later. Calibration is now achieved through software alone. This should make repairs faster and makes it easier for more repair locations to open up around the world, assuming Apple also loosens its relatively-stringent approval policy on setting up new repair centers. When Touch ID debuted with the iPhone 5s, the home button became cryptographically paired with the display and logic board.
Replacing an iPhone screen and digitiser without going through Apple’s proprietary calibration process would result in an iPhone with a new screen, but non-functional fingerprint sensor. The special hardware would assert that the screen is correctly reporting pressure, and then other software diagnostics ensure that the biometric systems are paired up correctly, and validate if the overall repair was successful. Apple has now managed to achieve all the calibration steps using software alone, dropping the need for dedicated physical hardware to be installed at repair locations. Repaired devices can now be calibrated by simply connecting them to a Mac Mini or MacBook Air running the diagnostics software.
This has several benefits. It means that workspaces for screen repairs no longer need to make room for special equipment. The software-only process is also apparently substantially faster than the previous procedure, hopefully decreasing turnaround time for customers. Finally, it makes it easier for Apple to roll out more licensed third-party locations. Currently, screen repairs can be conducted on-site at Apple Stores and some third party resellers. Apple has been hesitant to distribute the special hardware to lots of places, but it is significantly simpler for it to send over intangible software. No doubt Apple will still have a stringent approval and security policy for budding repair locations, but it’s a big step forward.
