They say it's an original Apple screen but is it? How you tell the difference.
We put together this page to explain the difference between an Original Apple iPhone Display.
Some repair centres will offer original Apple Displays when they are either copy screens or ‘OEM’ displays.
It is against the Trades description act to provide a copy or OEM display and state that it as original Apple display.
Copy displays will sometimes have less resolution than an original and poor quality copy screens will have a poor washed out colour and are less vibrant.
We see more and more repair shops that offer ‘Original Apple Screens. While this option is available the screens are never new screens; they are refurbished Apple displays. They are fully functional displays that have had the cracked glass professionally removed and fresh new glass fitted. The investment in equipment is at a high cost, and therefore repair shops usually have to buy the refurbished screens from a specialist company. As long as the screens are processed correctly, then these iPhone screens are perfectly reasonable.
