Apple just made your iPhone more expensive to fix

Posted by Angelsmith on September 15th, 2017

Apple will charge more to fix older iPhone models, such as the iPhone 6. If you are paying enough money for the new iPhone X, Apple just raised the cost of repairing your iPhone.

It has just increased repair fees for the iPhone not just for new ones, but also for the old models. For example, if you crack the screen on your iPhone 7 or iPhone 6S and aren't covered by warranty or AppleCare+, Apple will charge more than it was previously. Screen repairs for older models such as the iPhone 6 and iPhone SE have been raised, while Apple now charges extra for Plus-sized iPhones.

Apple revealed three new iPhones and it seems to be celebrating the occasion with some stomach-churning pricing. If you want to have Apple's premium products, pay a premium price. Whether this is due to expensive components or limited supply, one thing is certain your wallet will feel.

It also charges a pretty much for other damages, which it says includes all damages not limited to the iPhone screen repair. It will cost your iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 Plus a little higher.

The iPhone X is not yet on the service pricing page, but it can be more costly to repair due to edge-to-edge OLED display and premium components.

If you want to avoid paying these high repair costs, you may want to consider getting AppleCare+ coverage. Keep in mind that it isn't cheap, it costs high to fix your iPhone 8, iPhone 7 and iPhone 6s.

Pre-orders for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus starts Friday, Sept. 15 and pre-orders for the iPhone X starts Oct. 27. If you do try to get the new iPhones as soon as they are available, be sure to take care of them and maybe spend a little extra on a protective case.
