The direct cost for iPhone X is enough to make some people lose the iPhone altogether and have forced some price sensitive individuals to accept that the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus is their destiny for now.
However, for those who have spent $ 999 + on iPhone X as part of a pre-order deal, or who are still planning to introduce it into their lives, publishing Apple's new flat repair price structure for the device might make them seriously reconsider buying , or at least make them wonder if AppleCare + is a must-have purchase for iPhone X.
The updated online document shows that the repair and replacement of the screen on iPhone X will cause the device owner to spend $ 279, and fix other types of damage to the device, whether it is caused by a phone drop or an accidental type of water problem. , will cost the device owner a staggering $ 549. The price level is roughly 54% of XIX's total cost of the new iPhone X20, which is actually equivalent to other Apple device repair costs at the percentage rate. However, if you take that fee and you really see the dollar amount you need to change for repair, it looks rather surprising.
Apple, of course, wants iPhone or iPad owners to buy AppleCare + upgraded packages next to the device. If it already exists, the cost of fixing the iPhone X screen will drop to just $ 29, with other damage fixes that keep consumers coming back with a fun $ 99. The price is definitely more fun than the $ 279 and $ 549 options cited in Apple's flat-cost repair pricing document, but there's also an initial $ 199 AppleCare + purchase to consider. It puts the initial device purchase for $ 199, but it can certainly save money to get ahead for those who are likely to break or destroy the device.
Of course, Apple's protection plan is not the only way forward. Many people have all inclusive bank accounts that offer comprehensive insurance for lost, theft, or property damage, including smartphones as long as the devices are registered with them. There are also third-party smartphone insurance plans that offer affordable premiums, all of which are worth considering and reviewed the pros and cons before pumping money into AppleCare +.
