There are however a couple of quick checks that can be done to self diagnose the issue yourself.

1. If the screen is cracked but the light still emits and can still be used, then it is just the front glass which has been effected, this however is not as good news as it sounds as all iPhone screens are one part so the front screen will need replacing.

2. If the screen is cracked or unbroken but the screen is black try taking your phone off of mute and plugging the phone into a charger, if it vibrates and/or makes a sound. Then still bad news but better than the alternative, and this is your front screen will need replacing.
