Apple iPhone 8 Rear Glass To Be Very Expensive For Repair

Due to wireless charging, Apple had to replace the rear metal panel with glass on new iPhone models, and with addition of glass, there is a higher risk of breakage in the event of an accidental drop. The only problem is that the repair of a broken rear glass panel costs more than the replacement of screen.

According to AppleInsider, a broken back-glass does not qualify for a $29 screen replacement and instead, users will have to pay $99 for the “other damage” fee, plus tax. After two incidents of accidental damage a higher replacement cost is charged, which is $349 for the iPhone 8, and $399 for the iPhone 8 Plus.
