Repairing a smartphone or tablet has never been cheap and likely never will be, but there’s no denying Apple charges some of the highest fees in the industry.
the third-generation tablet, Apple has once again increased its prices.
Moving forward, owners of the new 11-inch or 12.9-inch iPad Pro models will have to pay $499 and $649 respectively to repair the tablets, which equates to an extra $50 over the previous service fee. Moreover, battery repairs will continue to cost $99, while second-generation Apple Pencil battery replacements cost $29, just like the original stylus.
The increase in repair costs for the tablets likely has something to do with the new all-screen design that is present. However, as usual, Apple offers its customers the chance to acquire AppleCare+ protection for $129. This lasts for two years and reduces repair costs to just $49.
