Apple to start offering in-store replacement of damaged Apple iPhone 5s glass
According to a report published on Thursday, Apple Stores in the U.S. and Canada will start in-store replacements of damaged glass on Apple iPhone 5s units. The service is expected to begin this coming Monday, August 4th. Several stores have already started making these repairs as part of a test program, and Apple is apparently satisfied with the results.

From the beginning of this year, Apple Stores have offered in-store glass replacement for the Apple iPhone 5c, with similar service available for the Apple iPhone 5 since last year.  Apple charges $149 for a screen replacement, significantly cheaper than the $229 that the company charged consumers to have a screen replaced off-site.

By allowing these repairs to be made at the Apple Store, the company can reduce repair costs and wait times. A typical glass replacement could take just 30 to 60 minutes in-store.
