AppleCare+ Costs $199 for iPhone X

Share

In addition, the cost of the AppleCare+ warranty increased to $149 for all 6s Plus, and 7 Plus models, as well as the new 8 Plus. While we expected the fix and replacement to be a bit hefty, we weren't expecting the price of servicing on older iPhones to jump as well. Don't mind the first $29 deductible for screen damage and $99 for any other damage that make these prices even more expensive.

Although Apple has attached a high price tag for AppleCare+ coverage of the iPhone X, some opine that it is totally understandable and acceptable.

If you're getting a new iPhone 8 Plus, or want to take out AppleCare+ for an iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone 7 Plus, the price is now $149.

While the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X offer some solid upgrades over previous iPhone models, some folks are disappointed that they don't support LTE band 71 that uses T-Mobile's new 600MHz spectrum. The devices are sold with a limited warranty and 90 days of free support.

Not that it won't be worth it. AppleCare+ extends the warranty to two years from the iPhone X's purchase, but you have to register for it within 60 days of buying the phone.

Whether you choose to look at the iPhone X as "forward thinking" and groundbreaking, as Apple CEO Tim Cook flamboyantly claimed on stage at the company's latest keynote event, or just an Android trend follower, the "all screen" device definitely has a multitude of things going for it.

On its site, Apple also gave slight price bumps to out-of-service repairs for phones that aren't under warranty or AppleCare+ coverage.

To be fair, Apple isn't singling out the iPhone X either. The iPhone 8 starts at $699 and the Plus is $100 more.
