For example, while getting the screen replaced on a Plus-model iPhone (including the iPhone 8 Plus) will cost $169, having the same fix performed on the iPhone X will run customers about a hundred dollars more - $279. That's a big jump from the $399 to get an iPhone 8 Plus fixed, or the $349 to fix an iPhone 8.
Other improvements like the A11 Fusion processor and the addition of wireless charging that were introduced with the iPhone 8 will also appear on the X.
A screen-only fix of the iPhone X will set you back $279, while for other damage you will pay $549.
Apple declined to comment on Best Buy's iPhone X pricing strategy. Apple typically takes a few weeks or months to reach a balance of supply and demand for major new iPhone launches, and the 8's availability just weeks after its introduction may be a result of users waiting for the higher-end iPhone X. While the warranty itself is costly, warranty services fees (which applies only to the cases of "accidental damage" repair) is constant. Like for iPhone 8 if the screen change is needed then paying for the screen change out of warranty would be less costly than getting the replacement done once with warranty. So if the iPhone X is still in warranty a screen fix of $29 can be achieved.
But for the iPhone X screen could be replaced twice under warranty for $257 than for single time out-of-warranty screen replacement for $279. Just wait until you see the fix costs.
