Apple will not replace cracked glass in iPhone and Apple Watch for free

This month,Apple made some changes to the rules of providing free repair under the standard warranty, which no longer covers microcracks on the screens of iPhone smartphones and the Apple Watch smartwatch. According to the changes, microcracks now fall into the category of "accidental" damage, the removal of which is done by authorized service centers for a fee.

Before the mentioned change, Apple's standard warranty  extended to micro-cracks on smartphone screens and the company's smartwatch, provided that there is no other damage to the device or obvious points of influence that led to the appearance of the defect. However, in the near future such a service will cease to be available, as this week Apple has already started sending changes to the rules for providing warranty repair services to authorized service centers.

This means that when contacting a service center with microcracks on the screens of smartphones and smartwatches, you will have to pay for the removal of defects, even if there is no other visible damage on the user's devices. At this stage, these changes only affect the iPhone and Apple Watch. The standard warranty still allows free repairs for iPads and Macs with cracked screens. Why Apple decided to make changes to the rules for providing warranty repairs is not specified.
