    Default iphone 6 + cracked screen

    I was using my iphone 6 + and after the call the screen just cracked. Can i get a replacement from apple as i dont have any way of proving it to them that the glass was not tampered with. Help will be appreciated.

    Sure. If you have AppleCare+, use it. If you don't, you'll be charged a fee, but they will replace the screen for you.

    You'd be surprised. Folks stop by here all the time trying to spin a tale and pass it off as fact.

    To the OP, take the iPhone to the Apple Store and see what they will do for you. #nothingtolose

    I'm going to Apple tomorrow...I was sitting there looking at my iPhone and some how it went flying through the air and ended up with a cracked screen...then, when I least expected it, I was picking it up and it flying through the air again on it's own, this time landing in the middle of the road, and then a car magically appeared on top of it.

    Damnedest thing you've ever seen.

    If a crack appeared for no reason, then you got a lemon screen. But regardless of how it happened, you still have to do something to fix it or get another phone. If no insurance, it'll cost. But no one here has ever heard of that happening. And there's some long time iPhone users here. So you can appreciate why very few, if any, believe your story. Good luck!

    Take it to the Apple Store. They replaced my screen that "just cracked". They will be able to tell if the phone took any damage. And they might fix it for you without using an AppleCare incident. They did for me.

    This makes sense. Remember those compressed air jet propulsion systems they had patented? Maybe not rumors!

    Of course you can. Ask Apple if there is a store near by. Usually they charge $109 (plus tax) to fix a broken iPhone 6 screen. If you can't get to an Apple store, you can mail your device in to Apple for a shipping fee of $6.95. If you purchased AppleCare+ ($99 for two years) for your device, you'll only have to pay $79 for a screen repair -- though AppleCare+ only covers two incidents of accidental damage. If you don't have Applecare+ you can choose a reliable supplier like hcqs.cc to buy a screen replacement and then do the repair by yourself or a repair man.

    When swapping yourself or at a third-party, how big is the risk of Touch ID no longer working?
