Did you hear the latest news about the iPhone 15 Pro? Apple has quietly introduced a significant change in the design of the iPhone 14, 14 Plus, and now the iPhone 15 Pro, making repairs easier and more affordable. The big change? They’ve made the back glass removable, and it’s a game-changer for anyone who’s ever had to fix their iPhone.
So, what’s the deal with the iPhone 15 Pro’s back glass repair? Well, the iPhone 15 Pro boasts a brand-new titanium structure that’s not only stronger but also lighter than the old stainless steel design. During the iPhone launch event, Apple highlighted this “new internal chassis architecture” that allows the back glass to be replaced with ease.
Now, here’s the exciting part – the cost. Apple has not only made repairs easier but also more wallet-friendly. According to Apple’s official support website, replacing the back glass on an iPhone 15 Pro will set you back just $169, while the larger iPhone 15 Pro Max comes in at $199 for the same repair. These prices are identical to what you’d pay for the iPhone 14, 14 Plus, 15, and 15 Plus models, as they all share this removable glass back feature.
In contrast, the repair costs for other iPhones remain significantly higher. Take a look:
- iPhone 14 back glass: $169
- iPhone 14 Plus back glass: $199
- iPhone 14 Pro back glass: $499
- iPhone 14 Pro Max back glass: $549
- iPhone 15 back glass: $169
- iPhone 15 Plus back glass: $199
- iPhone 15 Pro back glass: $169
- iPhone 15 Pro Max back glass: $199
Now, if you’ve been savvy enough to invest in AppleCare+ for your iPhone, you’ll only have to part with a mere $29 to replace that back glass if the need arises. Not bad, right?

And here’s another interesting tidbit: Apple has recently thrown its weight behind the Right to Repair Act bill in California. This means that manufacturers, including Apple, will have to provide the necessary parts and tools for customers and third-party repair experts to fix their products. This move towards making devices more repairable is undoubtedly a significant step forward.
But hold on, there’s more news on the Apple front. While iPhone repairs are getting cheaper, Apple Watch battery replacements are going in the opposite direction. With the introduction of the Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2, the price of getting a new battery for your trusty wrist companion has gone up from $79 to $99.
So, there you have it – the latest in the world of Apple repairs. Cheaper fixes for iPhones and a slightly more expensive battery swap for Apple Watch users. It’s all part of the ever-evolving tech landscape.
