Apple may be offering a new service for iPhone owners. The chain of retail stores may be prepared to handle a variety of hardware repairs in the near future.

This in-house restoration process will be an expansion of the program rolled out for the iPhone 5 earlier this year. Check the notes below to see what fees you will have to pay for this fix.

-Broken screens will cost $149.
-Faulty batteries will be $79
-iPhone 5C’s home buttons will run up $29

These fees apply for owners who do not have their phone under any warranty. Applecare will protect customers as long as they can prove to Apple that the device has passed all of the necessary tests. Screen replacements would take about one hour in store but the only element that the company may not be able to work on is fixing damaged iPhone 5s sapphire home buttons. The likelihood this starts should be mid-2014.
