5 Getting It Repaired by a Third-Party
For the most part, you should only take your iPhone to an Apple-authorized repair technician or to Apple itself. That’s true even if your device isn’t still covered under the standard warranty or AppleCare+ — and there are a few reasons to opt for first-party service.
