Following a new store policy in the US and Canada, Apple Store China is going to have the iPhone 5S screen quick fix service in the business premisses. According to MaxX, the Chinese Apple Stores are having the service with effect from 11.8.2014 in their Genius bars. The new store policy allows customers to bring their iPhone 5S in and replace broken and damaged screens to a new one. Before having this policy, customers in the US and Canada were required to mail in their iPhones for screen replacement which takes around 5 working days
As we were told, the iPhone 5S screen replacement is going to cost customers around US$ 149 depending on the warranty status of their iPhone (Apple Care+). Before that, customers had to pay HK$269 in the US. This offers a new way for the store to accept repair task and also bring convenience to people who want to fix damaged iPhone immediately without the need to wait several days for a repaired iPhone. Of course, potential customers may need to know that the trade-off is you need to actually be in the store to receive this service, the traveling cost and time also count.
