Thumbs up to Technospace. I've used them several times and recommend them to all my friends. They've always had my repairs done in the amount of time quoted
An iPhone screen needs replacement when either one of the two screen components has experienced damage:
The iPhone 3G and 3GS come with two separate screens, the outer screen or the glass touchscreen and the inner screen or the LCD.
Replacing the complete screen on an iphone is straightforward and takes as little as 1 hour.
Except for the iPhone 3G and the iPhone 3GS, all other iPhones come with the two screens (outer and inner) fused together as one complete assembly making them impossible to repair individually. Apple has decided to fuse the iPhone screens together for several reasons:
With a fused screen (LCD and digitizer) there is never an issue with dust getting in between the layers of the screen;
The screen is thinner, as there is no air gap between the digitizer and the LCD. This allowed Apple to make iPhones a little thinner;
The replacement of the Screen on an iPhone as one complete part is more expensive, but fixes problems and issues associated with both the outer screen and the inner screen.
Cracked or broken touchscreens, LCDs, and screens are the most common problems with any iPhone. Many people mistakenly believe that the iPhone screen Gorilla Glass is unbreakable, which is not true. Corning Gorilla Glass on an iPhone is a great improvement for smartphones, making it less easy for the digitizer or screen to get scratched, but it is still easy for the screen to crack or break.
Often, the digitizer or the LCD part of the iPhone screen may not be visibly broken, but does fail to work due to repeated knocks, dings and drops. So, while the glass screen has no visible crack, it might be white or unresponsive to the touch. After suffering multiple knocks and drops over time, just the slightest impact may render the screen inoperable. This is a perplexing but common experience for many users who can’t understand why a very slight impact resulted in the failure of their iphone screen necessitating screen replacement.
A damaged screen can also be bleeding the liquid that is sealed within the LCD screen behind the glass. This impact often results in hair-line cracks that are often invisible to the naked eye. Over time, however, repeated knocks can widen and deepen the cracks until the cracks are large enough to seep out liquid.
Using your iPhone with a partially non-responsive or a fully dead screen is very frustrating. It means you can’t access a portion of your apps or nothing on the screen at all! You could work around the issue to do a majority of the phone’s functions by using SIRI. The voice recognition abilities of SIRI would allow you to still make calls and send texts, as well as set reminders and alarms, and even search the Internet.
But while SIRI is clearly an excellent robot helper, wouldn’t you prefer to have full control over your iPhone?
Outer Screen (associated with the iPhone digitizer, glass, or the touchscreen) problem symptoms include:
Your iPhone’s LCD will need to be replaced if you experience of the following:
For any of the above, your screen assembly needs to be replaced. Your only option is to bring your iPhone to The TechKnow Space and let our expert technicians replace the assembly within an hour.
Further Damage not Addressed by a Screen Fix
Typically, your display or LCD gets damaged because of a hit, bang or a drop. When this happens, you are unable to use your iPhone since you cannot see what is displayed on the screen. It is possible that the bang or the ding has also damaged other components on your iPhone, like your headphone jack, loudspeaker, earpiece, wifi antenna, etc. We can only discover these failures once we have replaced your screen, and can observe the behaviour of your iPhone functions on the display. Should we identify any additional repairs needing to be done to your iPhone, we will call you for confirmation before completing any repairs.
In situations where your iPhone screen is not the only problem we may need to perform additional diagnostic work to determine the repair approach which can take more than an hour and sometimes up to a day. (We will always keep you posted during the repair process!)
Sometimes when the drop that damages your iPhone screen causes damage to the frame as well. The iPhone’s case may become dented, bent and otherwise deformed, preventing the new replacement screen from being installed properly.
It is crucial to address the issue with the frame before installing the new screen, as doing the installation on an imperfect frame could cause stress on the glass, and make the screen crack with a minimal amount of force applied to it.
In the event if we find damage to your frame that requires some minor adjustment, we will perform the repair at no extra charge to you. If the frame is severely deformed (and sometimes that can only become evident after the cracked screen is removed) we will call you and inform you of an additional charge (typically less than $20) for realigning the frame and with the costs of replacing the housing entirely.
Again, when we discover any issues with your device beyond just a screen replacement, we will inform you and ask for your confirmation before we do any repairs.

This place offers exceptional service for an affordable price. I've been here twice over the last 3 years (iPhone 4 screen repair & most recently iPhone 5 battery replacement). They quoted me the standard 1 hour service for the repair to be completed, and it was finished within 20 minutes. As we all know, it's imperative to have our mobile devices working top notch, and we cannot be without them for a week while they are sent in to some unknown location to be repaired. TechKnow space is trustworthy, and you will get your device back the same morning or afternoon - 1 hr for phones and 2 hrs for tablets. They even have a customer lounge area with free wi-fi and a large screen TV for you to use while you wait for your repair to be done. Otherwise, you can leave and come back. Always have had great experiences with TechKnow Space, and will continue to be a customer here in the future! :)
The screen of your phone is arguably both the most vulnerable and the most important part. The screens of most modern phones are primarily composed of highly engineered glass composites, which means even the smallest bump or fall can be earth “shattering” (or maybe even just screen shattering ;).
Unless you are an expert, trying to replace the digitizer/touchscreen yourself is an endeavor hazardous to your happiness. These screens are very fragile and expensive. The glass or the digitizer is fused to the display/LCD, and the display is tightly fitted to the iPhone's frame. This screen replacement is best left to experienced technicians.
Unfortunately, we have had a number of DIY-enthusiasts, victims of the many online videos, straggling into our store clutching their newly purchased screens and their iPhone looking for help.
Our experts can fix your iPhone screen in 1 hour.
The screens of all smartphones are made of three different layers:
The three parts of the screens on iPhones are fused together into one component called a screen assembly, and cannot be repaired or replaced separately.
Because the screen is only one piece, you might feel it is an easy part to replace on your own. And while you could possibly be right, do you really want to risk being wrong after you have spent a few hours trying?
Let’s talk about the most popular models out there, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus (not to mention the iPhone 6S and iPhone 7 are even more complex).

OK, now that the phone is reassembled, but the screen isn’t displaying anything? Or the touchscreen doesn’t respond? Well, you can try checking if there’s a loose connection somewhere… But more likely you just received a defective screen. No biggie, just go through the entire replacement process again to uninstall the screen, pay for shipping it back to the seller and hope he will send you a free replacement. You are a determined one, aren’t you?
Another possibility - you try to boot the phone up it gives you a brief blue or red screen before restarting all over again. Good job, you probably did mix up the screws and have now damaged the motherboard of your iPhone. It is now a paperweight.
The iPhone actually booted up and seems to work fine? Except that now you notice that the screen had been obviously refurbished and has visible discoloration spots? Now you’ll have to choose whether to just suck it up and live with the problems or go through uninstalling the screen and sending it back to the supplier. We already covered how straightforward that process is. Ugh.
Make a test call just in case and make sure that the proximity sensor (the thing that makes your LCD go blank when you put the phone against your ear when on a call). If it stopped working – disassemble your phone again and try readjusting it. You might need to tinker around a few times before you get it right. At least next time you do an iPhone Screen Replacement it’ll be a breeze.
There’s another option I have briefly mentioned before.
Take your iPhone to the TechKnow Space for a screen replacement! They have been replacing iPhone screens since the first iPhone launched in 2007, and have yet to encounter a broken or cracked screen replacement challenge they have not tamed!
Here’s what repairing your iPhone at the TechKnow Space is like:
Alas, my adventurous friend, the choice is yours.
For the top layer of any iPhone screen there’s a layer of Corning’s Gorilla Glass. It’s a specially treated toughened glass designed to withstand drops and dings in order to prevent the glass from getting cracked or scratched.
During its manufacture, the glass is toughened by ion exchange. The material is immersed in a molten alkaline potassium salt at a temperature of approximately 400 °C, wherein smaller sodium ions in the glass are replaced by larger potassium ions from the salt bath. The larger ions occupy more volume and thereby create a surface layer of high residual compressive stress at the surface, giving the glass surface increased strength, ability to contain flaws, and overall crack-resistance, making it resistant to damage from everyday use.
Just keep in mind that as resistant as it can be, it is still glass.
The glass is a part of your iPhone’s screen not because smartphone manufacturers want to make phones particularly frail or weak, but because it is an important part of how the screen reacts to touch.
Touchscreens on all cell phones use a technology called “capacitive sensing”. This uses a layer of glass as an insulator (which means it does not transmit electricity), coated with a conductor (which can transmit electricity).
The conductive layer is usually a combination of metals called “indium tin oxide” (ITO). These metals are transparent, so you can see what is being shown on the display underneath.
Because the human body is also an electrical conductor, when your fingers make contact with the touchscreen, the conductive coating registers this as a change in the iPhone screen’s electric field. This is how your iPhone knows where you are tapping or dragging on the screen itself, even if you use multiple fingers at the same time.
Touchscreens use a series of steps to process the information entered by touching your iPhone’s screen:
All of this happens almost instantly. In fact, you probably will never notice a delay between touching the screen and the action happening. Not only can your iPhone do all of that in a nanosecond, but it can also calculate multiple touches at once, like two finger gestures such as zooming in.
You might think that touchscreens having a “multi-touch” capability is new technology. And it is pretty new, relatively speaking. In 1982, a group from the University of Toronto created a screen made of a camera behind a pane of glass which could register any human input. This awkward and hard to use interface was improved by U of T in 1985 with the first version of the modern touchscreens we know and love today.
Apple claimed they invented the multi-touch technology in 2007 with the release of the first iPhone, but both the phrase “multi-touch” and the actual function itself existed well before the rise of the iPhone. However, they are not being completely dishonest, as Apple holds several patents for the mobile device version of the technology.
Apple prides itself on user friendliness, and the iPhone screen interfaces with users in a very natural and intuitive way. The iPhone touchscreen can register your finger or stylus regardless of pressure or surface area. That is to say, the iPhone’s screen is sensitive enough that pressing hard or with a wider stylus isn’t necessary for accuracy or effectiveness.
The gestures accepted by the iPhone touchscreen are also very natural-feeling. Using multi-touch gestures to do a variety of movements, such as scrolling the screen, or expanding or shrinking the screen’s contents are often naturally understood by the user.
Some common gestures you can use with your iPhone:
Single tap – this functions the same as clicking the left button on a computer mouse once.
Double tap – this is a similar function to clicking the left mouse button on a computer mouse twice (usually to open a file or folder).
Scroll – this moves a page up, down, left or right, depending on the direction you drag your finger across the screen. This gesture is sometimes called “panning”.
Pinch – this gesture will make everything displayed on your screen smaller or “zoomed out”.
Expand – this gesture will “zoom in” on anything displayed on your iPhone’s screen, or make the contents of the screen larger.

When my iPhone 6 screen shattered I did not know what to do as I needed it fixed right away. Most companies that I called could only fix it over night. But luckily when I called The TechKnow Space they were able to fix it within ONE HOUR!!! I was so happy! The customer service was great!!! I took it into the Mississauga location and I would highly recommend this fast and affordable company for any repair!!! The work is EXCELLENT!!
Most smartphones use LCD technology for screens because it is thin and relatively cheap when compared to its lifespan.
The display of your iPhone is a high definition “liquid crystal display” or LCD for short. Liquid crystals might sound like something impossible, because how can something be both a liquid and a solid at the same time? But because these crystals can do both at the same time, the result is a screen which can display millions of different colours with no visible delay.
These liquid crystals are laid out in between two pieces of polarized glass, underneath the touchscreen. This layer is then powered by thin wires laid out in a grid underneath the crystals.
The crystals act like shutters, opening and closing above a colour filter composed of tiny red, green, and blue “sub-pixels.” These sub-pixels are invisible to the naked eye, and can be brightened or darkened in over 16 million combinations to create crisp, vibrant images and text.
The crystal component of the LCD is only half of the equation. The liquid crystal layer doesn’t project any light on its own, so your iPhone needs a layer of lighting (usually small, low-powered LEDS). This layer of lights is underneath the rest of the components and is referred to as backlight.
Starting with the iPhone 4, Apple calls the new screen technology a “Retina HD” display:
“Rather than using traditional methods to create the higher-resolution Retina HD display, we developed an advanced process of photo alignment. This involves using UV light to precisely position the display’s liquid crystals so they lie exactly where they should. Better-aligned crystals deliver a superior viewing experience.”
Their new technology promises a few interesting perks, like increased visibility in direct sunlight or with sunglasses on. Another added functionality of the Retina HD display in the latest iPhones is a wider viewing angle. The “viewing angle” is the largest angle that the display can still be acceptably used at.
Apple says the screens can now be comfortably viewed from almost any angle. This is possible because of the screen’s higher contrast and extra pixels.

I brought my iPhone 5 into Tech Know Space in Mississauga when I cracked my screen and they fixed it within one hour!!! I would highly recommend to anyone!! Great service!!
Are there any additional fees or labour charges other than the prices published here?
No, the final price for the screen replacement is what you see (plus HST).
What if something else is wrong with my phone?
We do full testing of your device prior to, during, and after the repair. If we discover any additional problems, we will call you and obtain your consent before proceeding with any repairs.
Can you really do the screen replacement within an hour?
Yes! Our techs are Apple Certified and have been fixing iPhones ever since the very first iPhone in 2007. They have tens of thousands of screen replacements under their belt! It could take longer if we need to do any diagnostics, in addition to a simple screen replacement.
No appointment needed, I can just walk in anytime?
Yes, you can just drop in any time when it’s convenient for you (as long as we have an hour before closing).
Do you get your screens from Apple?
No. And anyone who claims they do are misstating the facts. We do, however, get our screens from an Apple Authorized manufacturer, and thus provide a 60 day warranty on any iPhone screen replacement we do.
I asked around and your price is $10 higher than the guy in the plaza behind LCBO. Why is that?
It is inevitable that our phones will endure bangs and drops. Since we carry them with us everywhere we go, it is impossible to escape this. The best way to help protect your iPhone screen is with a good quality case, such as the Otterbox Defender or the Griffin Survivor. Purchasing one of these cases or another good quality case will give you peace of mind, when you accidently drop your phone.
We always advise our customers to protect their iPhones with good quality cases, though an inexpensive case is better than no case at all. We also alert them that if they don’t buy a case they are doomed to bringing their iPhone in for a second screen replacement.
Unhappily for many of our customers, they have come in for a second and even a third replacement. One customer replaced their iPhone 5 four times with us!!! We are happy to do this when you need it, but we are happier keeping our customers' iPhones smiling and safe.

I dropped and cracked the screen of my iPhone 5 and was dreading having to go all day without a phone in order to get it fixed. I was recommended The TechKnow Space in Mississauga by Square One Mall and had an amazing experience! And it was done within an hour! I will definitely come back if I ever need a phone, laptop or tablet repair again. Everyone should come here!
