How Much to Replace the iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C Glass Screen only?


When you check your cracked 5C or 5S screen, if you find the touchscreen performs well and the images under it are fine too, you can only replace it with a new and original iPhone 5C glass lens or iPhone 5S glass lens, whose cost is around $6.95 on ETrade Supply. You can also find many glass lenses on eBay or Amazon, but be careful to choose an original one rather than a fraud one.

Although the cost of a new 5C or 5S glass screen is quite cheap, you'll take risks if you replace only the glass lens, for the glass screen is hermetically fused to the touch screen. Therefore, you have to acquire professional skills on repairing glass screen on iPhone 5C or iPhone 5S, or you can get a new glass lens and turn to a local repair store, which may increase the cost but decrease the risks.

How Much to Repair the iPhone 5C or 5S Screen Assembly?

If your iPhone 5C or iPhone 5S digitizer touchscreen fail to work, you have to replace the complete screen on the iPhone 5C or 5S, which will be costly. Apple Store charges $269 dollars for the 5S screen replacement repair, while ETrade Supply supplies a new and original iPhone 5S LCD Screen and Digitizer Assembly with Frame at about $40, and iPhone 5C LCD Screen and Digitizer Assembly with Frame at about $39.

The new iPhone 5S and 5C screen assembly comes with the frame, so it will be a little more expensive but the replacement process will be much easier than replacing the screen assembly without frame. Anyway, comparing the $269 dollars in Apple Store for fixing broken iPhone 5C or 5S, you have saved much money. You can watch the following video of disassembling the iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C to learn how to replace the 5S or 5C screen assembly with frame.

Considering the expensive screen repair in Apple Store and the easier reparability on iPhone 5S, many iPhone users choose to purchase iPhone 5S replacement parts to DIY repair the cracked screen. What about you? Will you try to DIY repair your iPhone 5C or 5S? Let us know in the following comments.

    I need to fix my phone for cheap does the LCD come with the screen or do I have to buy that separate and how much would that be

    • BY May

      Hello Lex, strongly recommend you buying the LCD with digitizer unit though the cost is higher, the glass only replacement requires repair experience and it’s very easy to cause further damage to the screen.
