The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus models come with a removable back glass to make repairs easier, according to Tech Crunch and CBS. This makes these iPhone models the first that can be easily opened from the back of the device since iPhone 4S.


To replace the rear glass on the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 models, Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers must open the device from the display side, disassemble the components, and install an “iPhone Rear System” part. which is an iPhone case with all components except the screen and rear camera. This part is attached to the customer’s original rear camera and screen, as long as these parts are not damaged either.

For iPhone 11 and older models with a cracked back glass, Apple-certified technicians simply replace the entire device. The new method for iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus will be cheaper for Apple and more environmentally friendly.

Early teardowns of the iPhone 14 show that the device can still be opened from the display side as well, so screen repairs shouldn’t be affected by this change. Reviewers made no mention of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max having an easily removable rear glass panel, suggesting the change is limited to standard models.

In the United States, Apple Stores will charge $169 and $199 to replace the damaged back glass of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, respectively, for parts and labor. If the customer has AppleCare+ coverage for the iPhone, the fee is reduced to $29 for both models. These fees may vary between Apple Authorized Service Providers.

iPhone 14 orders will start arriving at customers this Friday, while the iPhone 14 Plus will be available from October 7.
