    Was given an iPhone 6, 64gb (4.7") from a family member who has since upgraded. Been told it overheats and bettery doesn't last long. I've booted the phone with sim card which I've since removed and after using like an ipod without sim the phone phone seems to be working fine.

    IOS reports battery at 87% and seems to last a while in standby. Only problem is the glass screen is cracked . Touch pad still works perfectly. Been quoted $89, $99, $100 and $129 at various shops and stalls in shopping centres to replace the screen. Apple charges $208.95 for out of warranty screen replacement.

    Just wondering. Is it worth getting the glass screen replaced on the iPhone?

    battery and screen are cheap online to buy and replace.

    honestly though i'd go to Apple and get the battery done too - however the 6 i reckon is dead in the water, 6S is barely hanging on.

    I think so yes, still a reasonable phone, not too old. Probably wouldn't pay more than $100 to get it fixed though.

    Iexperts do it for $99. Same Apple parts. Not cheap aftermarket copies

    Apple don't sell OEM parts.

    Good price but the phone is kinda old these days. Where are they getting genuine parts from?

    its pretty easy to do it yourself, kits you buy off ebay or wherever come with everything you need. I've done it a couple of times

    I don't know about now, but a few years back they could still be obtained from sources

    Edit: I'd also be hesitant to trust any repairer who said they used OEM parts as well
