Heads up, prospective iPhone X buyers: that shiny new Apple smartphone will come with a shiny new price tag for AppleCare+ insurance.
Apple also decided to quietly jack up the price of AppleCare+ for all iPhone Plus models by $20, according to the report. That brings the price of AppleCare+ up to $149 for the iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPhone 6s Plus.
Every iPhone comes with one year of hardware repair coverage and up to 90 days of complimentary support. AppleCare+ extends that coverage for another year and adds up to two incidents of accidental damage at $29 for a screen repair, or $99 for any other damage, plus tax. You can get AppleCare+ when you buy a new device or within 60 days of your purchase.
Meanwhile, Apple has also raised the price of off-warranty screen repairs. 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. As MacRumors noted, that's $20 more than Apple used to charge.
The iPhone X starts at $999 and comes in 64GB and 256GB versions and space gray or silver; it will be available for pre-order on Oct. 27 and launches Nov. 3. The iPhone 8 starts at $699 and the Plus is $100 more. Pre-orders begin this Friday and the phones are slated to arrive on Sept. 19. Both come in 64GB and 256GB flavors in space gray, silver, or a new gold finish.
