With every new iPhone, the camera glass seems to protrude a bit more, making it more prone to shattering. Many users wondered if there is a way to fix the crashed issue iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro camera glass Or if the entire back of the phone has to be replaced. We’ll take a look at how useful this fix is below.
Can you fix a broken iPhone 13 camera glass?
Whether or not users can replace the camera glass on the iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 Pro depends on the damage. The outer glass is just a protective cover and not part of the camera lens. So, if only this part is damaged, users will have a few options. However, if the camera itself is damaged, users will need Apple to replace it as the camera module must be paired with the phone to function properly.
If the outer protective glass is the only thing that needs repairing, there are a few options:
- Ask Apple to fix it (recommended)
- Ask a third-party repair shop to replace it
- Repair it yourself
Ask Apple to fix it
Users who have AppleCare+ or who are still in the window to sign up for AppleCare+ must do so. As long as the camera glass is only damaged, the maximum should be only $99. For this price, Apple will either replace the entire device or install a new camera glass on the device.
Ask a third-party repair shop to replace it
There are plenty of third party phone repair shops out there, and depending on where the user lives it may be the only option for them. However, not all of them work equally well. If Apple does a repair wrong, they will replace your phone, but if someone else does, you’re still stuck figuring out what to do.
Repair it yourself
The back of the iPhone 13 is a large glass panel, but the camera glass is separate from this. Therefore, users can carefully remove any cracked glass, and heat the lens cap to loosen and remove the glue. There are kits like this available that are supposed to match the dimensions and quality of the original glass:
I highly recommend that most people avoid this route. Removing and replacing the camera glass requires high precision, and it would be very easy to tamper by damaging the camera or accidentally leaving dust under the glass.
