Most iPhone screen replacements can be done same day or even within an hour onsite at our Brantford shop.
Mobilemend ensures quality when it comes to replacement screens for your iPhone. From the beginning, we have been offering you the choice of Aftermarket quality or Original quality. Mobilemend works daily with suppliers to make sure you are getting the highest available quality of Aftermarket and Original screens. Keep in mind, there are many qualities of Aftermarket and Original screens available and not all repair shops buy from the same supplier: you get what you pay for in our experience. Now when comparing Aftermarket screens to Original quality screens, there some differences you should consider: Resolution, colour brightness and quality of workmanship.
We always recommend Original quality. This is going to be the closest to what you were currently using on your iPhone. If you decide to go Aftermarket, and you are not entirely satisfied, that is no problem: pay the difference and we will change you over to Original at no additional labour charge. Both screens are backed by our Lifetime Guarantee, so if you have any issues, we are here!
Currently for iPhone 8 and iPhone X screen replacements: Ambient Light Sensor (ALS) is disabled due to firmware compatibility with replacement screens. This feature sets the brightness on your screen based on the lighting environment your iPhone is exposed to. This issue should be addressed with the upcoming iOS 12 update. We cannot confirm this. If you would like the feature to work after a screen replacement, your best bet is to go directly through Apple for the repair. If you would like more information please contact your nearest location for information.

• Find a case that suits your lifestyle: Otterbox Defender if you are working construction
