The popularity and success of the iPhone is unprecedented, with over 200 million iPhones sold since its inception since 2007. Of those hundreds of millions, many have battled with and lost to gravity, shattering screens in the process.

In fact, iPhone owners have dished out a whopping $5.9 billion on iPhone repairs.

Apple provides a one-year warranty on iPhones, but this does not cover accidental physical damage.

People require repairs from third-party companies after dropping their phones and shattering their screens or spilling liquids in and on their iPhones.

The average price of repairing an iPhone screen is usually between $100 and $150.

According to SquareTrade, 11 percent of iPhone owners are okay with using their phone after cracking its screen.

Some people utilize tape and stickers just to hold their phones together.

With the larger screen of the iPhone 5, we will surely see people continuing to drop their phones and needing repairs.
