cheaper one-time use compatible display

Hi, today i broke my phone. The display is dead but everthing else is working correctly. I just need to replace the screen to get some of my stuff back because i dont have a backup. So my question is: is there some cheaper display (new its around 400 euro) so i can just get my stuff back? I dont need to fix it in place but just to use it and throw it away. Thanks

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I have seen alternatives for most iPhones at this point, but checking all my usual spots I don’t see any third party screens, only refurbished ones, which are still quite pricey. That doesn’t mean there aren’t any, but they are more likely to be of questionable quality.

The iPhone 13 Pro is still a pretty new device, why not fix it and then resell it if you already have plans for a replacement? I know it’s not a small investment, but it’s still less than a whole new phone.

I have to completely agree. None of my regular suppliers have aftermarket 13 Pro/Pro Max screens.

Additionally, if you're going to go through the trouble of fixing the device with a new screen, spend 5 more euros on a seal, put it back together properly, and sell it for 600 euro instead of throwing it away. It is the only reasonable thing to do.


@erelectronics The problem is that a crowbar fell on it In the camera corner. It's literally split in two in that part so I'd have to change the outer frame as well


@olotek Oh yikes. That’s a bit trickier then. Well. Your best bet might be to ask at local repair shops if that’s a service they offer. Or would be willing to. Provide temp screens, or do “data recovery” for cases like this. Most places have known good components laying around anyway.
