Apple raises the cost of certain out of warranty iPhone screen repairs by $20

According to Apple's service pricing page, the company has raised the cost to repair the screen on certain models of the iPhone. For example, the price to repair a broken display on the Apple iPhone 6s, and Apple iPhone 7 has increased to $149 from the previous $129. Screen repairs for the Apple iPhone 6s Plus and Apple iPhone 7 Plus have increased in price from $149 to $169. Screen repairs for the new Apple iPhone 8 and Apple iPhone 8 Plus will also be priced at $149 and $169 respectively.

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.

Thanks for the news. Really my condolence to apple users but its also really their fault to be making the bad deal one after another. Apple can rise it by 10x and there really no option for their users. Its apple way or the highway.

In Apple world, 3 years go up $500 should be reasonable. In the Android world, $500 can buy 2 to 3 phones for some.

If your iPhone SE or older breaks - wouldn't it be cheaper to get a new one than to repair it? https://www.phonearena.com/news/Deal-Grab-Apples-iPhone-SE-at-a-bargain-price-from-Walmart-on-sale-for-just-129_id98189

DaFQ you talking about... this kinda sucks but I still like iOS... have you seen what it cost to repair a screen on an S6, S7, S8 or S8+. Where do you even go to get it done the same day?

It's a matter of perceptive. One from the iOS user and another from Android user. Its really a futile attempt to get one side to see the other. That's why I inform to iOS brethren not to bother us unless these two conditions are met. 1) Apple opens up iOS to be licensed to other OEM manufacturers and there are iOS devices coming from Samsung, LG, Sony and other 3rd grades China/India OEMs. 2) Apple phone pricing is equivalent or cheaper than an Android phone. I figure the Apple fan is feeling a chill down their spine after reading my conditions. LOL!

€99 at various repair services near me, while you wait.

Dude there are plenty of repair shops that'll replace your iPhone screen and do repairs for $85 and under. Doesn't mean that they're gonna use OEM parts just like your "various repair services". What if I want it done by Samsung themselves? How much would it cost and how long do you stay without your device.

my note 2 from 2012 is still ticking and so is my note 5 from 2015. The only problem I had with a samsung phone was the charging port was damaged in rain and was replaced for less than $20.

You know I had two android phones before I got an iPhone, both broke and there is no way to fix them - no shop has the parts. I bought a cheaper iPhone 5s, it was already a 2 year old model and even though it didn't need repairs - even today that same 4 year old device can be repaired in less than an hour by Apple - so I know the parts are genuine and guaranteed. There's just no easy support for android devices after they were sold to you. Now answer my damn question, where do I take my (hypothetical) Samsung right now to get it repaired in one hour asured they used original equipment parts?

Apple repairs the same day because it's easy to fix a broken toy.
