Apple raises the cost of certain out of warranty iPhone screen repairs by $2019
On the other hand, those requiring a screen repair pay only $29 if they are a subscriber to AppleCare+. The cost of AppleCare+ for the iPhone 6s, iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 is $129 for two years. For the iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 8 Plus, the cost for two years of Apple Care+ is $149. If you're interested in buying two years of warranty extension for the iPhone X, it will cost you $199.
Besides covering screen repairs for $29, AppleCare+ will cover any other damage for just $99. And battery replacements are free on AppleCare+ (as opposed to $79 out of warranty). Many of you might consider it a waste of money, but if you are the type that is constantly dropping his/her iPhone, it probably would be money well spent.
