In 2017, Apple launched the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus. For the first time, these devices sported glass on both the front and the back of the device. While this certainly gave the devices a great aesthetic, it made the phones even more susceptible to damage when dropped. Apple continued this trend with the release of the iPhone X, iPhone XR and iPhone XS devices.

Solid construction makes for repair headaches

The glass back on these iPhone are bonded to the frame and the internal hardware with a very strong epoxy, meaning it’s basically fused to the inside of the phone. Unfortunately it’s not a simple matter of simply removing the glass back off the phone; you have to dissolve the epoxy either using extreme heat or extreme cold. And when the glass breaks, the individual shards have to be removed individually – they don’t come off together.

How to repair iPhone back glass?

Until recently, the general consensus was to take your device back to Apple for a (very) costly repair. As Apple are also unable to remove the back glass themselves, they basically have to give you a replacement (typically refurbished) iPhone in place of your broken device. This is both expensive and also very inconvenient – and migration of your data is not included.

A better approach

fix2U have taken a new and rather unique approach to the problem of repairing iPhone back glass. At fix2U, we replace the entire phone frame (or “housing”) with a new frame. This is still a time consuming activity, as all of the internal parts of the iPhone have to be transferred from the old housing to the new one. However, it’s faster than trying to remove the broken glass, and the end result is a phone that looks brand new. The price for the repair is far cheaper than doing this via Apple, and you won’t have to worry about moving all your data over to a new phone. Result! Finally, with fix2U, you’ll have the convenience of getting your devices fixed in under an hour in your home or your office, Australia-wide.
