So, the other day, I dropped my phone. Again.
It was such a soft drop, I didn't think for a second my screen would be cracked.
It was cracked. It looked like I had thrown my phone at the floor. There were multiple large cracks across the screen. Frustration ensues.
I'm notorious for dropping my phone. On the floor, in toilets, you name it. Nevertheless, I've never purchased Apple Care.
Apple charges $199 for an iPhone XR screen repair. That, or I try a third party. The research begins. I get a bunch of quotes that are more expensive than Apple themselves (what?). I find a place that would do it for $115 and the reviews are great. Still, I'm nervous they would mess up my phone for good.
I decide to go for it and book it to the place to squeeze in my repair before the long weekend (Canada day!). I leave my precious device in their hands and head to the library for 40 minutes.
When I return, my phone is read and in perfect condition. I fiddle around with it and everything seems to work as expected. I breathe a huge sign of relief. Story of my life.
