Apple significantly reduces the cost of repairing iPhone 15 Pro models with a cracked back glass

By Joe Rossignol

As we reported last week, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max feature a more repairable internal design with a redesigned frame that makes the back glass panel easy to remove from the devices. This change was first introduced to the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus last year, and is now rolling out to the Pro models this year.

We said at the time that a removable back glass would likely lead to a significant reduction in the cost of repairing iPhone 15 Pro models with a cracked back glass for customers without AppleCare+ coverage, and now it confirmed. As Ian Selbo noted, Apple has updated its US website to include repair costs for the iPhone 15, saying it will charge $169 or $199 to repair an iPhone 15 Pro or iPhone 15 Pro Max with rear glass damage. By comparison, those fees are set at $499 or $549 for the iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Pro Max.

The lower fees were also reported by 9to5Mac. For customers with AppleCare+ insurance for their iPhone, rear glass damage can be repaired for $29.

In the US, Apple's battery replacement fee is set at $99 for all four iPhone 15 models, which is not differs from the cost of the iPhone 15. 14 series. For more information on iPhone 15 repair costs, such as rear camera repairs or other damage, visit Apple's website.
