The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini (stylized and marketed as iPhone 12 mini) are a range of smartphones designed, developed, and marketed by Apple Inc. They are the fourteenth-generation, "affordable flagship" iPhones, succeeding the iPhone 11. They were unveiled at a virtually held Apple Special Event at Apple Park in Cupertino, California on October 13, 2020, alongside the "premium flagship" iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max and HomePod Mini. Pre-orders for the iPhone 12 started on October 16, 2020, and the phone became available in most countries on October 23, 2020 alongside the iPhone 12 Pro and fourth-generation iPad Air. Pre-orders for the iPhone 12 Mini began on November 6, 2020, and the phone became available on November 13, 2020 alongside the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
The major upgrades over the iPhone 11 include the addition of a Super Retina XDR OLED as opposed to the Liquid Retina LED-backlit LCD IPS panel on the iPhone 11 and XR, 5G support, the introduction of MagSafe, Apple A14 Bionic system on a chip (SoC), high-dynamic-range video Dolby Vision 4K up to 30 fps and a new Mini model and the term was previously used on smaller Apple devices such as the iPad Mini and Mac Mini. The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini, like the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, are the first iPhone models from Apple to no longer include a power adapter or EarPods headphones found in prior iPhone models; however, a USB-C to Lightning cable is included; and this change was retroactively applied to other iPhone models sold by Apple, such as the iPhone XR, iPhone 11 and the second-generation iPhone SE.
The iPhone 12 Mini was discontinued on September 7, 2022, after the introduction of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro.

Quality of our Components.
Not all iPhone components are created equally. When we first started iPhone repairs, Apple would make genuine parts available for companies like ours to carry out repairs. But as they have moved more towards pushing people towards replacing damaged devices, rather than repairing them, they have restricted the availability of some genuine Apple parts. Due to our history of our iPhone repair service we have been able to build relationships with the people who make the screens and we are able to fit high quality components in all of our repairs. Put simply, we don't use cheap screens that we've bought from eBay and we didn't learn our craft from watching YouTube videos.
SimplyFixIt uses Apple Certified Technicians to carry out repairs on Apple devices, including the iPhone 12. There isn't anyone else in Edinburgh or Glasgow who uses technicians who have been certified by Apple. We back that up with a 12-month warranty on all iPhone 12 repairs.
iPhone 12 Screen Repairs5-Star Service.
Premium Quality Screen options
The LCD screen offers a really high-quality screen at an amazing value. The OLED screen includes True Tone; a feature developed by Apple that matches the colour and intensity of the screen to the light in your environment. They offer better levels of colour saturation, which improves the way photos are shown on screen.
The Genuine Apple screen is the best possible screen. Of course, it offers the highest resolution and colour depth. Although most people can't tell the difference between our premium third-party screens and an Apple one, some people can. If you're someone who wants the absolute best, this is the screen for you.
12 Month Warranty
Covers faults but not damage. Apple provides a 3-month warranty with their repairs.
We professionally clean the charging ports, speakers, the earpiece and microphone.
Optional Screen Protection
A tempered glass cover can be fitted to reduce the risk of your screen breaking again.

Important Display Message:
A temporary message, that Apple calls an 'Important Display Message', appears on the Lock Screen for 4 days after the repair. The message says that Apple is 'unable to verify this iPhone has a genuine Apple display'. This doesn't affect the usage of the iPhone in any way. This message appears even when a genuine Apple screen is used and is just a ploy by Apple to promote the use of their own screen repair service. See Apple's Paired Component Messages for more information.
Liquids and iPhone don't mix well. I know that there's lots of stories about rice working, and almost every other repair company talks about fixing liquid damaged devices. We want to be honest with you up front. Nobody can guarantee that an electronic device, which has been wet, will work perfectly again. It can be fine for weeks and then fail out of the blue. The best advice we can give is to get any important data off the device — things like photos — and then move to a new iPhone.
If your device has had liquid damage then SimplyFixIt reserves the right to cancel the repair and issue a refund. It's not that we don't like you, but we want to stand by our warranty. If it is possible to get your data off the device, we will notify you so that you can decide how to proceed.
Front Screen Damage:
* In order to carry out this repair, we need to access your iPhone through the front screen. If the front screen is damaged then we this will need to be repaired at the same time.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Apple charge for an iPhone 12 screen replacement?
According to their website, Apple charge £289 to fix an iPhone 12 screen in the UK. At SimplyFixIt, a new screen costs £99. You will save £190 and can still be confident of the quality. You can even split the cost of the repair into 3 interest free payments using Klarna.
Can SimplyFixIt change the battery in an iPhone 12?
The way that all batteries work, not just iPhone batteries, is that over time they lose their capacity. In most cases, if you charge a battery fully 500 times, the difference in performance will be very noticeable. 500 charges on a smartphone are probably done in under 2 years, so if your iPhone 12 is over 2 years old, you will see much better performance with a new battery. SimplyFixIt is cheaper than Apple for all iPhone battery replacements. We also offer discounts if you are replacing the battery during a screen replacement.
Does SimplyFixIt use Genuine Apple screens for an iPhone 12 screen repair?
SimplyFixIt has screen options for every budget. "LCD" screens offer good colour contrast, but they are a little darker than the original screen. The type of screen that Apple used on the iPhone 12 is called "OLED". This type of screen is more expensive than LCD, but the quality is even better — darker blacks, richer colours and a higher maximum brightness. One thing to remember though is that Apple used LCD screens for their iPhones for a really long time, and even the iPhone 11 shipped with an LCD screen, so it's definitely not a bad choice. Sometimes though, nothing but genuine Apple will do. They are the highest quality screens, with the best overall colour contrast and the highest maximum brightness. SimplyFixIt can provide a genuine Apple screen for the Phone 12 for £265, which is a saving of £24 compared to Apple. Plus, we offer a full 12-month warranty for the screen, compared to Apple's 3-month warranty.
Can SimplyFixIt unlock an iPhone 12?
There are lots of shops offering to unlock an iPhone 12. The truth is that they just take your money and use a 3rd party to do it. No shop can unlock an iPhone 12 because you need a relationship with the mobile network and Apple to do it. All they are doing is acting like a middle-man. The best way to unlock an iPhone is to ask your mobile network to do it. If that's not possible, or if they won't unlock the iPhone for some reason, then MobileUnlocks are a reliable option.
