Situation 1: Your iPhone is Under 1st Year Manufacturer's Warranty

Unfortunately, apple's 1st year manufacture warranty doesn't apply to damage caused by accident, abuse, misuse, liquid contact, fire, earthquake or other external cause, which means Apple will not response for your broken screen, and you still have to pay the same replacement cost as being out of warranty if you need to repair it.

In this case, you can take it to an Apple store, call AppleCare at 1-800-APL-CARE (1-800-275-2273) or go to getsupport.apple.com, if you are far away from an Apple store. Apple will replace your device for a reasonable cost (we list the detailed cost under Situation 2).

Note:You'd better not fix your iPhone in some local repair store because Apple will not be responsible for your device anymore if you go somewhere else. Moreover, cheap screens and parts seem to have a tendency to break more often than official Apple parts.

Situation 2: Your iPhone is Covered by AppleCare+

AppleCare+ for iPhone is a service produced by Apple extends your coverage to two years from the original purchase date of your iPhone and adds up to two incidents of accidental damage coverage. You need to pay $79 for iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus, or $99 for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
Since AppleCare+ covers two incidents of accidental damage, if your iPhone screen is broken, you can pay a service fee and get a replacement at Apple Store.

Price for iPhone Screen Damaged Repair

With AppleCare+ Without AppleCare+
iPhone 6s Plus $ 99 $ 149
iPhone 6s $ 99 $ 129
iPhone 6 Plus $ 79 $ 129
iPhone 6 $ 79 $ 109
iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c $ 79 $ 129
iPhone 5 $ 49 $ 129

Situation 3: Your iPhone is Out of Warranty

If you are out of warranty and didn't buy the AppleCare+, just take your device to the Apple store and also as we mentioned in situation 1, don't take iPhone in some local repair store.

Before taking your device to Apple, make an appointment at an Apple Store or one of Apple authorized service locations, and be sure to back up your iPhone before you take it to fix.
