The repair costs for repairing the cracked phone screen in a California hospital were $2.1 million and $1.5 million, according to an estimate by repair app Sears Repair Phone.
It’s one of the highest repair costs per phone repair in the country, according the company, which added in some insurance to cover the bill.
“The iPhone repair cost is the highest for any device we’ve seen to date,” said Sears CEO Eric Trenberth.
“We have the most people we’ve ever seen with iPhones in any region.”
For example, the average cost of a cracked phone is about $1,500, according Sears.
Sears said that if the iPhone is sold on its own and does not need a replacement, it will cost $800, but if it is sold with an iPhone 5S or a 5C it could cost as much as $1 million.
The average iPhone repair includes: a screen repair $1k to $3.5k (about 2-3 hours)
