Web Secret 529: uBreakiFix

Ask any Gen Z person to show you their smartphone and I will bet you over 50% of the time, the screen is cracked.

Badly cracked.

And they don't seem to care.

This is a profound mystery to me.

I consider my iPhone to be a miraculous device, something to be tended too and protected at all times.

In over ten years of ownership, I have never cracked any screen of any device I have ever owned.

But if I did, it would get fixed within 48 hours.

Now here is the rub. If you are still under warranty, you have to make an appointment with the Genius Bar. And they might need to keep it for hours, maybe even days.

If you do not have Apple Care+ or are out of warranty, it will cost you $149 to fix the screen.

I'd rather take my smashed screen to uBreakiFix.

uBreak is a franchise with hundreds of outposts throughout the USA.

There the repair will cost less: $129.99. And the repair will take under 2 hours.

I feel better already.
