Apple hikes repair, replacement & AppleCare+ prices for iPhones

Alongside announcing the iPhone 8 and X, Apple has also raised the cost of some AppleCare+ warranties, as well as out-of-pocket repair and replacement costs for every recent iPhone model.




The cost of an AppleCare+ warranty has jumped from $129 to $149 for the iPhone 6s Plus, 7 Plus, and 8 Plus. For the iPhone X a plan will cost a record $199, likely because of the potential expense of replacing its 5.8-inch OLED panel.

Out-of-pocket, non-warrantied screen repairs for the iPhone 6 and SE are now $129, up from $99, while the cost for the iPhone 6s and 7 is up $20 to $149. All Plus-series phones are $20 more expensive at $169.

Repairs of "other damage" have been made more expensive for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, at $319 and $349, respectively. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will meanwhile cost $349 and $399 to fix.

Apple hasn't said what non-warrantied repairs will cost for the iPhone X, but prices are liable to be substantially higher.

The latest generation of iPhones have become more costly in general. The iPhone 8, shipping Sept. 22, is at least $699, while the iPhone X — arriving Nov. 3 — will start at $999.
