Best way to repair a cracked camera lens on iPhone 6+?

Managed to drop my 6+ yesterday and the camera lens got a huge crack in it. Any idea what this would cost to repair at an Apple store, or if there is a better option?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You can just completely break off the lens with a flat screwdriver. My ipad camera lens broke and i broke the lens off. Now it works just like before

Did you happen to get the extended AppleCare coverage? If not see if you can signup for it without them seeing your phone (often Apple will give you a day or two to decide).

Try that first, if that won't work just walk in to an AppleStore with a very sad face to see if they will fix it Apple often will be nice when the phone is so new as they see it as a PR issue to have a happy customer. If they won't fix it for free see if they have a flat fee for the repair.

I believe the out-of-warranty (aka) drop damage charge from Apple would be $339. I would expect this to be a straightforward repair--if/when the lens becomes commonly available it would be far less to either DIY or have it done at a local repair shop.

Mine happened the same thing, I called apple costumer service and they replaced my phone for free. You should try and explain that you don't know how that thing happened. Mine broke from sudden and I have zero clue how that happened!! I'm glad they replaced it for free.

Apple will not replace your camera. Here's why. Apple cannot simply give out $400 dollar items for free. What they will do is ask you what happened. You cannot even have A DENT or SCRATCH if you want it replaced. They will say no, and make you pay the whole price for the new iPhone. I had this exact problem, and they said no.
