Well it was bound to happen - 10 years of using my iPhones without cases without a problem and two days ago I dropped my 8 Plus when getting out of the car at the petrol station.
Back glass is smashed and the camera lens glass has a crack in it.
Apple want $700 (!) to replace the back. I tried getting in touch with Apple on the phone to plead my case and to ask fr forgiveness and maybe a waiving of the fee, but the Aussie girl on the line was completely unsympathetic and quite rude (a universe away from the US reps I have spoken to).
Does anyone know if there are any third-party options for this repair?
