Why is the Screen Repair so expensive?

My daughter’s series 3 watch screen cracked and Apple is wanting to charge more than I can buy a new one from target for. I wanted to replace the screen myself for around $60 but come to find out just the parts for it are insanely expensive too. My question is whether anyone has a guess as to how long it might be for those parts to come down in price now that the series 4 is out.

It has less to do with the series of watch and more to do with the technology involved.

The Apple Watch screen is very tiny. Miniaturization costs money. It uses an OLED display, which is more expensive than other types of displays. The digitizer assembly is laminated to the screen, and the digitizer itself is built into curved glass which costs more money to manufacture.

A good quality replacement Apple Watch 3 screen should cost you around $175 or so.

Thanks! I figured there’s enough tech in there to justify a bit over $100 but when apple wanted $289 or whatever it was to fix it I was very surprised and figure it’s a replacement not a repair. Keeping my fingers crossed that sometime in the near future the series 3 parts come down in price since the series 4 is out.

My Apple Watch 3 screen crashed. In India Apple service Center people asking to surrender it and get it replaced after paying Rs17000/-. A new 3 series watch is Rs.20000/- on line.

Absurd.

I just dropped my Apple Watch and the top of the Apple Watch is pretty shattered so I went on the website I have apple care for it that expires in June 2020 so I thought the right thing was to get it repaired because I must not be expensive for a series 4 turns out to ship it out to Apple and repair would cost $451 CAD with Apple care .Thats absurd so I’m just gonna use it till it breaks and then get a series 5 but it’s insane how my 44millineter series 4 that I have I paid $520 for it and a screen repair is %85 of the total cost like it’s absurd Apple has serious problems there mark ups for repair are crazy it would cost probably $10 for them to repair but no repair shops do it because it’s so fragile but when they repair it it’s a fully automated robot that replaces the broken screen and puts a new one.

No robots! Real people fix them!

Nobody fixes them - when you send a watch into Apple, they simply assess the damage, determine what from the watch can be pulled (battery, board, etc) and they send you an entirely new watch.

At the factory they are done by robot with people doing the tedious work. Sweat shops. Yeah been repairing things for over 30 yrs. Apple has a sucker base, why someone keeps them in business, i will never know. But yeah the screens are made by Canon usually and are made by robots and about 6 bucks of material if that, the oled that they tout is special can be made in 5 to 6 mins at 300 to 400 square ft, Dupont has a machine faster that only cost 30k to make. But Apple has been one of the first to make things cheaper in quality and jack the price up to see how far idiots will go, im surprised that they are getting 3 to 4 good paychecks out of folks these days and steadily going up. Sad thing is the products are getting less for more money while they make you think you got something better? The computers might have been a little slower 15 yrs ago but you got quality , you cant even get physical drives or extra slots now and the main board is a joke now and its 5 times the price.

There is a distinction between the manufacturing of a part, assembly of the finished goods and the subsequent repair of the product.

Apple contracts for the parts to be made, here the OLED screen is made by Canon or other supplier. What they do within the factory is an automated process. The same for the SIP unit and some parts are robotically assembled as in the case of the cables attached to the screen and mounted to the backer or the cable attached to the SIP.

The assembly line which brings together these sub assembles and other sundry parts to assemble the finished watch is all done by hand with help with jigs and even some helping robotic hands.

I don't doubt the manpower is underpaid! As we saw in India the other week the contractor Apple hired tried to steal the hard earned money from their workers Apple Places Supplier Wistron on Probation Following Worker Unrest in India. There is a catch22 here! Assembly line automation reduces the needed man power to assemble the products. We've seen that in the automotive sector. So far the technology is not able to replace the worker fully (its coming!) What happens then?? Before we know it we wont need to work! How are you going to pay the bills?

Repair is a different world! It will be quite a few years more before robots are used. People are still needed and have the required skills.

Zero respect for ultra precise, beautifully crafted mass produced products…that seem to always “just work”. Unlike any other consumer company on the planet. 20 google homes in my house, and the pieces of garbage work correctly 1/4 of the time. Yet my apple HomePods control my smart home stuff precisely as I want them to. And that’s just one example.
