The price of AppleCare+ coverage for iPhone Plus models has increased

iPhone X's AppleCare+ Plan Isn't Cheap

The Cupertino tech giant is also increasing its fix and replacement prices for its iPhones, making things even more expensive.

For iPhone X buyers, the already hefty price for Apple's tenth-anniversary smartphone will come with a shiny new price tag for AppleCare+ insurance.

Beyond the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus pricing, screen repairs for the older IPhone 6 and SE models jumped for $99 to $129, while iPhone 6s and 7 increased from $129 to $149. However, with AppleCare+, users can broaden the scope of the warranty on their phone, including the extension of the coverage for two years since the purchase of the device and two incidents of accidental damage coverage with a service fee of $29 for screen damage.

Apple offers some basic coverage for new iPhones that includes a one-year limited warranty and 90 days of free phone support.

On its site, Apple also gave slight price bumps to out-of-service repairs for phones that aren't under warranty or AppleCare+ coverage.

Apple also reportedly made a decision to quietly jack up the price of AppleCare+ for all iPhone Plus models by $20. Without a warranty, a new screen will set you back $169 for the iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPhone 6s Plus, or $149 for the iPhone 8, iPhone 7, or iPhone 6s. Apple CEO has said that the price hike didn't affect the sales and the company saw more sales than its expectations.
