My dads iPhone SE (2020) camera glass cover has cracked and Apple wants to charge me $579 to swap for a refurb unit. I find this absurd, I just need the lens replaced. Is there anyone in Auckland that can do this or am I SOL and pay the $579? Thanks.

Repairs – GoodTech




I bought an Iphone (SE 2022) and it was perfect at an unbeatable price at the time.  They do repairs so while I have no experience repair-wise they were very good on sales.

I've had two really positive experiences with these guys on Rosebank Road and I know two others have as well.
