    Hey,

    I have a situation that only the upper glass(gorilla glass) of my iphone 6 is cracked, the screen and touch is working just fine.
    Can i replace only the glass?

      Hi, it’s possible to replace only the upper glass, however it needs very professional repairing skills or it may easily hurt the whole screen assembly.

    When changing out screens do u have to change out both screen and digitizer? Or can you do just the screen because that’s the only thing cracked.

    I’m a very experienced technician. You must be joking that a careful operation like that would take only 3 minutes. An hour maybe, if it was done properly.

      I disagree I followed these steps for the 1st and only time and I was done in about 10 min and my phone works perfectly. Might be time to throw in the towel experienced technician.
