iPhone back camera lens glass is not an electronic component and hence it does not carry any guarantee or warranty for the repairs.
Apple started using sapphire over the rear camera lens which prevents scratches on the camera glass with everyday use. On the Mohs scale of hardness, sapphire rates a 9, which is just under diamond at a 10 on the top of the scale. Its hardness makes it resistant to scratches and hence it’s also used by high-end watchmakers and by Apple to cover the home button and the rear camera of iPhone 7 and later models.
Despite Apple using sapphire crystal glass to cover the rear camera on the iPhone, it is still susceptible to crack or break after a fall. In the event of a damaged back camera lens glass, we advise replacing the camera glass at the earliest to avoid any damage to the rear camera itself.
There is also a small possibility that the broken glass pieces of the camera lens lodge between the optical lens and the camera housing which can cause optical stabilization to fail. Delay in fixing the cracked camera lens will also cause the dust particles to enter through the rear camera glass and settle down on the image sensor which will result in having spots while taking pictures.
Cracked or broken iPhone rear camera glass is not covered under the Apple Limited Warranty. You might be able to repair your iPhone for a fee if you are covered under Apple Care+
Not sure if your iPhone is under warranty? Check if you are covered by Apple Care+ by entering the iPhone serial or IMEI number. You would need to make an appointment before visiting an Apple Store or an Apple Authorized Service Provider.
Here are some of the most common questions customers ask about iPhone back glass.
There are two methods to fix the broken glass of your iPhone rear camera.
Replacing the broken rear camera glass without opening the iPhone is risky, involving removing the glass’s broken fragments. In addition, there is a chance that the broken glass fragments can lodge inside the camera module itself, causing it to malfunction. Hence we recommend disassembling the iPhone and removing the camera from the rear case before replacing the camera glass.
Your iPhone will lose its water-resistance if the back camera glass is cracked. There is also a small possibility that the broken glass pieces of the camera lens lodge between the optical lens and the camera housing which can cause optical stabilization to fail.

If you own an iPhone 7 or later, then yes, your iPhone rear camera glass is scratch resistant to everyday use.
