There are three certainties in life: death, taxes and inevitably dropping your iPhone, smashing not only your screen but also your heart into a thousand pieces.
But if recent news from Apple is to be believed, repairing your damaged iPhone screen may be about to get a whole lot easier.
Apple have invented a special machine called the ‘Horizon Machine’ which is designed to fix cracked or damaged iPhone screens.
Reuters reported that this machine was previously only available to Apple employees at only one location in the US, but will soon become available to third-party stores by the end of this year.
Basic cracks and chips will still be able to be repaired by your non-Apple technicians, however the new machine will be able to easily replace more complicated tech features of the phone such as the fingerprint sensor.
Apple haven’t revealed how much they plan on charging you to use the Horizon Machine, but it seems like we won’t have to wait long to find out.
Although the price mightn’t differ too much from the current repair costs, one thing’s for sure: it’s going to be a hell of a lot shorter wait to get your phone back in your pocket… that is until you drop it again.
