How To Fix iPhone 14 Pro Camera Lens Crack

Unfortunately, shattered glass can’t be fixed! The lens or the entire camera module has to be replaced.

If you purchased AppleCare+ the fix will cost you an additional $99, as the incident will be labeled as ‘All Other Damage.’ The good news is that AppleCare+ is now covering an unlimited amount of events per year!

Tip: If you broke the iPhone 14 camera lens within 60 days of purchase and haven’t opted for AppleCare+, you might be able to still grab it online and then claim the incident. This has been suggested on Reddit, but it’s unsure yet if the trick will work.

Update: A Genius bar employee confirmed that this works!

“I confirm. Just add monthly AppleCare and make a claim.”

Prevent iPhone 14 Pro Camera Lens Cracks

As you might know prevention is better than intervention and much cheaper I would say! That’s why I recommend you to use protective gear on a $1300 device.

Especially, with the iPhone 13 Pro larger camera module, that exposes the lenses even more than before!

1. iPhone 14 Cases With Camera Lips

A case that comes with 2.5mm camera lips will provide basic protection. The lips will absorb the shock and prevent the iPhone 14 camera lens from cracking when hitting a flat surface. We recommend:

Fact: Camera lens will still break if you’re unlucky and the back camera module has a direct impact with a protruding object.

2. iPhone 14 Camera Lens Covers

To make thinks even safer, you can also add camera lens protectors. Some that we recommend are available below:
