-- BELLEVUE, Nebraska (September 27, 2013) AME Computers is now repairing Apple’s iPhone 5. AME is the only iPhone repair center in the Omaha/Offutt/
Bellevue area that offers a lifetime warranty on their screens and a “No Break” Guarantee. Why did it take so long? They have been repairing iPhone 3, 4, 4S, iPod and iPads (http://www.iphonerepairomaha.com/)
since they opened in 2010, but waited until this summer to officially begin repairing the new
iPhone 5. Repairing involves a few steps to ensure it is done with care and precision. Apple, however, radically changed the way it manufactured and assembled its new iPhone 5. When a new Apple product is released, it’s not like a car or IKEA entertainment center; there are no manuals or instructions. Repair sites have to make the repairs first and report it. This usually involves someone risking a new and working device to slowly discover each step. “This in and of itself would only delay us a few weeks, but there was another factor involved: screen price,” said the owner. The cost of a new screen during the first few months of release was roughly 35-45% the cost of a new iPhone. Those who broke their phones early on may have been shocked to see repair prices hovering at about $250. AME Computers now offers the same repair for $150 (as of September 2013).

Why was and is everyone so expensive when it comes to repairing the iPhone 5? The replacement screen has a lot to do with it. When the iPhone 5 was released, Apple was the only company who had replacement screens. As time passed, Apple released the original manufacturers to produce iPhone 5 screens for consumer consumption. That allows businesses like AME Computers to purchase screens to repair your device. Some might say they’ve seen screens on eBay for really cheap. Some screens and some repair shops will offer what appears like amazing prices compared to their competitors. BE CAREFUL! Not all screens are created equal. AME only uses OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer)
repair parts. That means they only purchase from the manufacturers that supply original manufacture screens, no copy or “grade” level screens. Other manufacturers that charge up to 50% less; use cheap materials, short-cuts and subpar equipment. The result is a knock-off screen that has a high chance of breaking or failing in the future. Now that enough time has passed the OEM sellers have lowered prices enough that independent shops can carry screens and not charge an arm and a leg.
