The iPhone 14
Released in 2022, the iPhone 14 is the flagship iPhone release that was released alongside iPhone 14 Plus, the iPhone 14 Pro, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. The iPhone 14 features a 6.1-inch screen, 6 GB of Ram, and a multitude of other features that make it a popular and sought after device.
In addition, the original operating system provided by Apple is preferred amongst many people due to its simplicity. As the iPhone 14 is the cheapest option from this particular range, you will find some of its featured limited compared to its counterparts. However, it is a more than reliable device in its own right.

Is an iPhone screen weaker than others?
iPhone’s screens aren’t designed or intentionally weaker than other phone screens. Modern smartphones use glass in order to achieve the accuracy of their touchscreens. However, the drawback to using glass is that it is sensitive to impact.
There may be instances in which the physical properties of the phone may make it easier to crack or get damaged, such as a folding screen. But all modern smartphones are designed to be as strong as they can be without any accessories.
How can I protect my screen?
When it comes to increasing the durability of your phone, and reducing the likelihood of damages that can permanently alter a smartphone, phone cases and screen protectors are the two most common accessories.
- Phone Case – Phone cases cover the entire body of the phone, excluding the screen, though there are exceptions to this. They can be made from plastic, metal, rubber, wood, and so much more. They reduce the impact that a caseless phone could easily become cracked from.
- Screen Protectors – There are more than one kind of screen protector available. One of that is a thin flexible plastic layer, and the other is a ‘glass’ screen protector.
The first option can protect against scratches or scuff marks, but doesn’t have the capability to prevent a screen from cracking.
A glass screen protector also protects against scratched and scuff marks, but additionally protects the phone screen from cracks by absorbing the damage first. This means that you can have a cracked screen protector, but a blemish free phone screen beneath it.
How much to replace iPhone 14 screen?
We can’t speak with certainty to how much other phone repair services charge for repairing an iPhone 14. However, we can guarantee our level of service and expertise will make our repair the best value for your money. Additionally, we can answer any concerns you have, and provide tips to keep your device in the best condition.
For those curious, here is the process we undertake in replacing a phone screen:
- Firstly, we remove the casing that binds the screen to the phone.
- After this, we carefully remove any connections to the hardware and circuit boards.
- We then assess the internal hardware to see if any glass from the screen has fallen in there, or if the connections are damaged. (If there are significant damages that cause further faults, we will consult you).
- We then make the necessary connections between your current hardware and the replacement screen.
- We test to see if the screen works once connected.
- Finally, we then reattach the casing, and test the screen once again to ensure the procedure was successful.
- We contact you to come and collect your newly repaired device.
Is a bigger screen easier to break than a smaller screen?
The best way to approach this question is to understand that a larger phone naturally has a larger surface area, and as a result, a larger screen. As we established earlier, glass is easy to damage, so by that understanding, a larger phone screen has more chance to be damaged, simply because it’s bigger.
Whether it is easy to break or not is another question. It can be argued that a larger screen with a screen protector and a phone case is harder to break than a smaller screened phone without the additional protection.
Does a glass screen protector break?
A glass screen protector is the most effective form of screen protector available, right now. A glass screen protector will sustain the damage that would have been otherwise absorbed by the phone screen.
It can be cracked, either over a small or large area. Unless the damage that caused it was very extensive, your phone screen should be spotless beneath the protector. In conjunction with a sturdy phone case, you have protected your phone to the best capacity possible.
How can I repair my phone with Apple?
If you own an Apple iPhone, you can get a repair done through Apple. This is done through your manufacturer warranty, if it is still in warranty. If the time has passed from your manufacturer warranty, you can still get a repair from Apple, however, you will be paying for it.
The cost of the repair will depend on the severity of the damage, and the model of iPhone.
If your iPhone has been bought 2nd hand and the warranty was already registered, you aren’t able to access the benefits of the manufacturer warranty.
Apple extended warranty
Apple does have an additional support plan for your Apple devices, called AppleCare+ which greatly subsidises the cost of phone repairs and gives you access to more support services.
Services include 24-hour priority calling, however, you still have to pay a monthly fee of £9.99, this might not be worth it for some, along with a cheaper price to repair the fault at hand.
This is a valid option for anyone who has bought their iPhone 2nd hand.
