The Best Toronto iPhone Repair Shops

There are probably hundreds of places offering to repair your iPhone in Toronto – but not all of them are created equally. When it comes to choosing a Toronto iPhone repair shop, quality is king. Unfortunately, price is often prioritized over quality when choosing a repair shop. While breaking your phone is tragic, having your phone repaired with inferior parts or expertise can make your situation even worse.

Look for marks of excellence: quality parts, quick repairs, and a service guarantee.

Quality Parts

The best repair shops use high quality parts when repairing your iPhone.

There are many cheap, poor quality parts floating around. Some repairs shops may use these cheaper parts to save costs. The problem is that with cheaper parts, you get what you pay for – buttons may break quickly, screens may scratch easily, or other problems such as overheating could result. Before getting your phone repaired make sure you ask about the parts being used – if the question is brushed off or you don’t feel confident in their answer, you may want to take your phone elsewhere.

Speed of Service

Most people use their phones every day – so you probably don’t want to be without it for long while it’s getting repaired. While repairs shouldn’t be rushed, most of them can be accomplished in a fairly short amount of time. Look for places that offer service “while you wait,” or at least within the day. Any longer than that could be a red flag (depending on the repair).

No Upfront Cost

Labour has value, but if you’re paying for a specific repair service (like a screen replacement) then you should only be charged if the repair is successful. If there is a fee to just look at your phone for a common repair, look elsewhere to get it done.

Warranty

While not an absolute requirement, the best repair shops offer a warranty on repaired parts. Not only is this an indicator in the quality of the parts themselves, but you can rest assured that if something goes wrong, they will fix it.

These shops are the best Toronto iPhone repair shops:

Established in Toronto in 2012, CPR Cell Phone Repair is part of a large chain of repair shops founded in 1997. While the chain normally offers a 6-month guarantee for parts and labour, the Toronto location has extended that to a lifetime warranty just for iPhone and iPad repairs.

Getting your phone fixed shouldn’t be a gamble.

    Thank you so much for the list of places to go get my iPhone repaired. I was walking to work the other day and I tripped and fell down. I was texting at the time and my iPhone’s screen shattered when it hit the ground. I will take a look at these businesses and see which one will be best for me.

    The TechKnow Space is good if your downtown, I like Esource parts if I find myself out in Mississauga though. Would like to see a similar post summarizing all the decent places outside of DT.

    Hello I have a broken
    – Iphone 5S screen & a Samsung S4 screen

    I want to find the best deal I can to fix both phones. thank you.

    Stellar Cellular is actually my choice. I have sent many friends there who have also been more than very pleased. The owner is a no bull kind of guy so don’t go in there acting all high and mighty. I know he can be a brute if he feels disrespected but is you’re cool he seems to go above and beyond. They also use original iPhone 6 parts and will show you how you can tell they are legit if you ask. They have some other items but I have only gone in for repairs so I can’t speak for those things.

    Thanks for mentioning CPR Cellphone Repair. Just to clarify, all repairs are supported by a limited lifetime warranty for manufacturer’s defects – not physical or liquid damage – just like every manufacturer. And all repairs are done on-site with most “while you wait” ensuring speed and quality. Each location is conveniently located with ample free parking.
