Apple's new, all-screen iPhone X is coming with its own super-sized screen repair price: $279.
The company posted an updated iPhone service pricing guide on its website Friday, the day its X handset went on presale.
According to the new service rates, a screen replacement job for the latest and greatest iPhone is almost twice what Apple charges to fix iPhone 8 ($169) or 8 Plus ($149) screens, while Apple’s oldest iPhones run $129 for a broken display.
The iPhone X is Apple’s largest iPhone screen yet, so the big bump in repair price is what it is.
But, if you think $279 for a smartphone screen repair is high, please see Samsung's latest Galaxy phones. A broken S8 display could cost you anywhere from $269 to $399, depending on the certified repair shop you choose.
Apple’s AppleCare+ insurance plan price for the new iPhone X is $199 for two years of coverage, and it drops your screen repair price to $29 and ‘other damage’ repairs from $529 to $99.
Of course, the cheapest of all the options that new iPhone owners-to-be have: Put it in a case!
Best of luck on keeping your new, big and beautiful screen in one piece.
