If you’re among thewho actually got an last night, you might want to buy a screen protector, like right now.
Apple’s new flagship phone, which starts at $999, £999 or AU$1,579, will cost a bundle to replace if damaged.
The cost for “additional damage that’s not limited to the screen” is $550. Here’s how Apple’s repair costs break down for the iPhone X compared to other recent phones.
The exception is if you elect to get AppleCare+ coverage, which does cover accidental damage to the screen and other parts of the phone. It costs $199 in the US, £199 in the UK and AU$299 in Australia.
Or you could just get a screen protector and a robust case. On a phone that expensive, butterfingers might want both.
