The iPhone 15 Pro Will Be Significantly Cheaper to Repair If You Have Broken the Back Glass

During the Wonderlust event, Apple talked about how the new iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max are easier to repair thanks to changes made in the phone's design and construction. Compared to the older models, the back glass of new iPhones can easily be removed. This is not the first time Apple has made these changes as the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus also had the same design, and now it is extending to the Pro variants as well.

New construction design on iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max allows for an easier and cheaper back glass repair

An easier-to-remove back glass means that it would be cheaper to repair if the back glass cracks, and that speculation turned out to be true as Apple has updated its website with the new iPhone 15 repair charges. If you do end up damaging the back of your phone, you are going to have to spend $169 or $199 for the back glass panel, depending on whether you have the Pro or the Pro Max variant. This might feel like it is still higher than what other companies are charging, but for the sake of comparison, the iPhone 14 Pro's back glass repair was $499, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max's back glass repair was $549.

Compared to the older iPhone models, the new iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max are comparatively cheaper to repair. The new iPhones are slated to hit the shelves on 22nd October, and hopefully, we will get to see just how repairable these phones are overall. After all, repairing an Apple device has never been an easy job, but I am really looking forward to seeing if Apple has made the needed changes to the new devices.

I had a debate with my cousins yesterday about how the new IPhone 15 series might not look like an attractive package for anyone who is still running on an older iPhone 14, but there are a lot of changes under the hood that Apple has made, and these changes are only going to help the new iPhones achieve what was previously not possible on a mobile device. I mean, the iPhone 15 Pro series alone is very commendable in terms of performance and offers everything that you would want from a high-end phone. At the time of writing, I cannot think of a better phone than the new iPhone, regardless of the variant you are picking up. So, if you have been looking for something new, this is definitely going to sort you out.
