Genuine iPhone replacement screens are not made available to third party repairers such as fix2U. If you are offered a “genuine” Apple screen from another repairer, please note that you will be receiving a used, refurbished screen rather than a brand new factory-assembled screen.
As a third party repairer, fix2U has the freedom to source its own high quality, brand new, factory assembled iPhone screens that are of an equivalent specification to Apple. In most cases, key components of the screen assembly, such as the LCD panel, are actually the same part from the same manufacturer as those used by Apple. These parts are commonly referred to as “OEM” or Original Equipment Manufacturer specification.
For iPhone models that use an OLED panel (Organic Light Emitting Diode) – such as iPhone X series and iPhone 11 series, fix2U will always replace your screen with a high quality OLED panel. Please be aware that some repair shops use inferior, cheaper LCD panels when performing your screen replacement – we can promise you you’ll notice the difference. When getting your screen replaced on these models, always make sure you are being offered an OLED screen. For more information on OLED panels see our blog post on the subject.
As a result of being able to source our own screens, we are able to provide our customers with screen repair prices that are significantly lower than Apple, backed by our 5 Year Guarantee.
