NEW YORK (CNN TECH) Hot tip for anyone running out to buy Apple’s new $1,000 smartphone: Don’t drop it.
The iPhone X, which hits store shelves November 3, is Apple’s most expensive phone yet. But the higher price tag isn’t reserved just for the phone. Repairs are more expensive, too.
A broken screen will set you back $275, according to repair costs posted to the Apple web site. For comparison, a screen repair for Apple’s new $799 iPhone 8 Plus, costs $169. The figures were reported earlier by MacRumors.
Those repair prices come down if you splurge for AppleCare+ — an extended warranty program that adds $199 onto the iPhone X’s sticker price.
