Common Apple device problems

Apple products tend to be known for their quality, but there are still many common causes of damage or wear and tear that may require repairs. Below are the most common services requested by our iTechs:

  • Cracked screen replacement: the most common problem for iPhones, iPads, and often MacBooks and Apple Watches, cracked screens most often occur from accidental damage which is not covered under Apple’s standard one-year warranty. iTechs can replace the screen of your Apple device with a genuine Apple screen or a high-quality aftermarket LCD or OLED screen.
  • Battery replacement: another exceedingly common problem for iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches, and MacBook products is the tendence of the battery to no longer hold a charge. Whereas Apple products can last for 5-8 years or longer, the batteries tend to wear out much sooner than the device’s lifespan. If your battery no longer reaches 80% of a charge or you notice it drains too quickly, consider having it replaced.
  • Damaged charging port: much like with battery replacement, your Apple device’s charging port may be damaged and may no longer be charging your device at all or very slowly. An iTech can diagnose problems with your charging port and replace it for you.
  • Water damage: many Apple products have some IP resistance and can sustain the occasional splash or raindrop, but they are not impervious to water damage or from immersion in other liquids. A qualified technician can often restore the full functionality of your Apple device if it has sustained water damage.
  • Camera not working: front (selfie) and rear cameras on many iPhone models as well as cameras on other Apple Devices may not be working properly either due to the device’s camera app settings or other hardware problems that may require camera lens replacement.
  • Stuck power/home/volume button(s): the power, home, and/or volume buttons on your iPhone, iPad, or other Apple device can become stuck, making it challenging to use the device or embarrassing to answer calls or watch videos. An iTech can repair these buttons and restore the functionality of your Apple device.
  • Rear glass/housing replacement: newer iPhone models with rear glass housing can be subjected to cracks or damage that may or may not affect the hardware within. iTechs can replace the rear glass of your iPhone as well as provide micro soldering for circuit boards on many Apple devices.
  • Software issues: your Apple device may not be responding at all to your inputs or you may have encountered the white screen of death. iTechs can diagnose iOS and other software issues with your Apple device to restore its functionality.
  • The most commonly requested Apple device repairs tend to be screen replacement, charging port problems, and battery replacement.

Officially supported Apple products

Which Apple devices are officially supported by Apple and are also currently in production? Most newer iPhone, iPad, MacBook, Mac, iMac, and Apple Watch products from within the past 3+ years are still supported and produced by Apple, which means that you can get in-warranty and AppleCare+ support.

Older models that are no longer supported or that have been discontinued generally require third-party repairs. While most iTechs can work with slightly older models, parts and components may be difficult and/or expensive to acquire for much older devices.

The following Apple products are officially supported and in-production models as of March 2024:

Please note that there are many other Apple device models that, while discontinued, continue to be supported by Apple. This means that iOS updates as well as replacement parts and components should be available for these models from Apple.

Third-party Apple device repair technicians such as iTechs often have large inventories of parts and components for most of these Apple products or can at least order them from suppliers quickly. They may also have parts and components for discontinued Apple products that are no longer supported, so if your Apple device is quite old and you wish to have it repaired, consider enquiring with one of our iTechs.

  • Apple products are generally supported for a maximal lifespan of 2-8 years after their release date.

Apple repairs vs replacement

Apple can repair almost any problem with your Apple product so long as the product is supported and the Genius Bar technicians or Apple Repair Centre location has access to parts and components to conduct the repair.

If Apple is unable to repair your device, they will almost always provide you with a refurbished replacement model of the same colour, storage, and model. Moreover, many Apple product repairs that are beyond the coverage of in-warranty or AppleCare+ repairs will be done by replacing the device rather than repairing it.

In some cases, customers may even be under the impression that their device will be repaired rather than replaced, which can lead to the loss of data if it hasn’t been backed up elsewhere.

For devices that are no longer supported by Apple or simply to save time and money, consider choosing a third-party Apple device repair technician through iTechnician for Apple repairs.

Independent third-party Apple repair costs

How much does it cost to repair an Apple device in the UK through an independent third-party repairer? We’ve consulted various iTechs across the UK to obtain price data for some of the most common services for the most common Apple products and tabulated the results below.

Our findings include minimum and maximum ranges for Apple product repairs as well as the mean of all of our findings to give a rough impression of how much these services cost.

Note that many of the latest product models lack price data due to these devices still being under their one-year warranty and therefore not being commonly requested.

Apple Store vs independent third-party repairs

What should you consider when looking for someone to repair your iPhone, iPad, MacBook, Mac, iMac, or Apple Watch? Many device owners may naturally consider going to the nearest Apple Store or taking advantage of Apple’s repair service by post, or perhaps trying out the Apple Self Service Repair service now available for supported models.

We’ve evaluated these methods and compared them to independent third-party Apple device repairs. Below are some of the key differences between official Apple repairs, e.g. at an Apple Store or through the aforementioned options, and using an independent third-party repair technician such as an iTech:

Cost

In terms of cost, the most important thing to consider is whether or not your Apple device is still under its standard one-year warranty coverage and/or if you’ve opted into AppleCare+ for extended coverage. Many repairs, whether performed by a certified third-party Apple device repairer or directly through Apple, are either completely free or covered by AppleCare+ with an excess fee.
For all out-of-warranty repairs, however, third-party Apple repairs are often significantly cheaper than official Apple repairs.

To use a common example, a cracked screen replacement for the iPhone 13 costs £289 through Apple but around £181, on average, from various third-party repairers. iPhone 12 cracked screen repairs likewise cost £289 through Apple and approximately £169 through third parties. In both cases (and many others), that leads to £100 or more saved, often using the same genuine Apple parts.

For many other services, we have found that third-party repairs generally cost substantially less than repairs made directly through Apple.

Convenience

What makes Apple Stores less convenient than third-party repairs is that there are 40 Apple Store locations in the UK, mostly located in large towns and cities.

Comparatively, there are thousands of mobile repair shops and Apple-certified repair shops all across the UK. Many reputable technicians can be found here on iTechnician.

Furthermore, many iTechs can come to you to perform repairs while you wait. Many also have walk-in services at their repair shop and/or offer repairs by post.

Turnaround time

Apple’s repair options can be quite lacklustre when compared to most third-party repairs.

Repairs made through the Apple Store’s Genius Bar tend to require an appointment, but the actual repairs tend to be rather quick for most common problems such as cracked screen replacement or battery replacement.

Similarly, most third-party repair technicians can perform same-day repairs, often within around 30 minutes to 2 hours for common repairs.

Availability of genuine Apple parts

Naturally, all Apple Stores use genuine Apple parts and components and there should be no worries about quality. Third-party repairs may or may not use genuine Apple replacement parts, however.
Compatible aftermarket replacement screens, batteries, and other components can vary quite a bit in terms of quality and price. Some are “just as good” as genuine Apple parts whereas others may be terrible quality. It is always worth asking your local iTech about the quality of their parts and components.

Many of our iTechs are certified Apple repair technicians with full access to support materials, training, and genuine Apple parts and components. If you insist on having only genuine Apple parts, enquire with your iTech.

Product support

Apple only supports its products for around 2-8 years at a maximum, which includes iOS updates as well as general customer support and repair services for these product models.

Older, discontinued and unsupported Apple devices may still be in perfectly reasonable condition and owners may wish to hold onto them for perhaps just a few more years. iTechs often have access to an inventory of genuine Apple parts and components or suitable aftermarket components to prolong the lifespan of these older devices.

  • Third-party Apple device repairs tend to be far cheaper, more convenient, and faster than official Apple repairs.

What affects the price of Apple device repairs?

Apple device repair costs can vary significantly based on many factors, and in some cases, they may be free or they may come at a high cost.

To receive Apple device repairs for free, the damage/fault will need to be covered by your product warranty. All other repairs come at a cost, either an excess fee for AppleCare+ repairs or at full cost for out-of-warranty repairs.

Below are the key factors affecting the price of Apple device repairs:

  • Product type & model: generally, the latest Apple product models tend to cost more to repair than older models. Obsolete or discontinued models may be difficult to repair due to lack of replacement parts.
  • Complexity:many common Apple device problems such as cracked screens and batteries no longer holding a charge can often be simple and straightforward for a qualified iTech. More complex problems such as repairing specific iMac or MacBook hardware or software problems may require more labour to diagnose and repair.
  • Parts & labour: some parts and components are readily available from Apple or aftermarket suppliers. Replacement screens, batteries, and charging ports for the most common iPhone and iPad models are often held in stock, whereas rarer components for less common or discontinued Apple products may be more challenging to obtain. Aftermarket products are often far cheaper than genuine Apple parts. Parts and labour fees can vary substantially.
  • Warranty: Apple products come with a standard one-year warranty from the date of purchase in accordance with UK consumer laws (Consumer Rights Act 2015). Eligible in-warranty repairs are fully covered by Apple, whereas non-eligible repairs require out-of-warranty service at full cost to the customer.
  • AppleCare+: Apple products can be purchased with additional coverage, AppleCare+, which can prolong protection beyond the standard one-year warranty as well as cover accidental damage, screen replacement, and many other repairs not covered by the standard one-year warranty. An excess fee is charged for repairs, however, which depends on the product type and model.
  • Location: for many residents in the UK, it may or may not be convenient to drive to the nearest town or city to visit an Apple Store. Mobile repair services from iTechs may be far more convenient. Moreover, brick and mortar Apple repair shops located in London may have much higher rents than elsewhere, which means their services may cost more.
  • Service availability: many Apple repairs take less than an hour or two to complete, but not all Apple repair technicians are available 24/7. Some iTechs operate seven days a week and can provide same-day or next-day services.
  • Apple repairs can range in cost from free to prohibitively expensive, depending on many factors.

Apple device repairs: questions people commonly ask

How long do iPhone repairs take?

iPhone repairs can take anywhere from 30 minutes to days to complete, depending on the repairs required. Cracked iPhone screen replacement, battery repair, and charging port replacement tend to take 30 minutes to 2 hours when performed by a qualified Apple device repair technician.

iTechs can provide same-day services with or without an appointment, whereas Apple Store repairs generally require an appointment with the Genius Bar.

Is it cheaper to repair or replace an iPhone?

It is normally cheaper to repair an iPhone than to replace it so long as the repairs do not cost too much. iPhones tend to last around 5-8 years and have a far longer lifespan than most other mobile phone competitor brands, so repairs can provide greater long-term value.

As a rule of thumb, if the repairs cost at least half of the original purchase price of the iPhone, it is better to replace the iPhone with a different model.

What are the 3 most popular iPhone repairs?

The three most popular iPhone repairs requested of our iTechs are cracked screen replacement, battery replacement, and charging port repairs. These three services make up the majority of all repair requests from iPhone owners.

Other less-common iPhone repair services include water damage repair, speaker/microphone issues, stuck power/home/volume buttons, micro soldering, camera lens replacement, and iOS issues.

Why is iPad expensive in the UK?

iPad repairs tend to be expensive in the UK due to a range of factors such as VAT, higher distribution costs compared to within America, a weak pound sterling exchange rate, and a gradually declining demand for iPad products over the past decade which leads to fewer replacement parts and components being readily available.

iPad screen replacement and battery replacement are amongst the most commonly requested iPad repair services, so enquire with a local iTech for a quote to repair your iPad.

How much is iPad screen repair in the UK?

iPad screen repair costs in the UK vary from approximately £50 to £400 depending on the iPad model and the type of screen, i.e. genuine Apple vs aftermarket LCD screen.

As of 2024, the approximate cost of iPad screen repair from iTechs in the UK for each iPad product type is estimated as follows: iPad - £60-£200, iPad Air - £50-£290, iPad mini - £50-£400, iPad Pro - £140-£500. Current-generation iPad models tend to cost more for screen repair than older discontinued models.

Why are Macs so expensive to repair?

Macs tend to be expensive to repair compared to PCs due to factors such as Apple’s closed ecosystem, the use of proprietary parts and components, and non-standard product builds such as the iMac which can pose challenges to electronics repairers.

Mac repairs should always be performed by a qualified and experienced iTech familiar with your Mac product.

Is it better to repair a Mac or buy a new one?

It is generally better to repair a Mac than to buy a new one, unless you are determined to upgrade to a newer model for higher specifications, for example. The cost of repairing most Mac products tends to be economical due to the relatively long lifespan of Apple Mac products and because brand new Mac products tend to be relatively expensive.

Most Macs have a lifespan of approximately 3-10 years depending on a range of factors. MacBooks tend to last between 7-10 years whereas iMacs may last 3-8 years.

Is it worth repairing an old iMac?

iMacs are well-known for having a durable build capable of lasting for approximately 3-8 years or longer. It is worth repairing an old iMac so long as it has the right features and specifications for your needs and the repairs make financial sense.

Since new iMacs tend to cost well over a thousand pounds, it may be worthwhile having your older iMac repaired rather than buying new.

How much does it cost to fix a cracked Apple Watch screen?

A cracked Apple Watch screen may cost anywhere from around £100-£230 to replace. The average cost of repairing an Apple Watch screen according to our iTechs is around £159 for the five latest Apple Watch models.

Note that Apple does not cover accidental damage to Apple Watch screens under the standard one-year warranty. AppleCare+ glass repairs can be serviced for a fee.

Do Apple do free repairs?

You may be eligible for Apple device repairs for free so long as your Apple product is covered by the standard one-year product warranty and the repairs fall under what Apple considers to be manufacturing defects or assembly process issues.

Accidental damage and most other user-caused Apple device problems are not covered by the standard one-year warranty, but they may be covered by AppleCare+ for an additional fee.
