Water damage is still counted under accidental damage, and the prices for your two AppleCare+ repairs are the same: $29 for screen replacement and $99 for more substantial damage. Similarly, the cost of an iPhone 6s or iPhone 7 screen fix has gone up $20 to $149, while the cost of fixing the screen on any iPhone Plus model has likewise gone up by $20 to $169. Full replacement for other damage will run a gaudy $399 and $349 respectively.
Whether you choose to look at the iPhone X as "forward thinking" and groundbreaking, as Apple CEO Tim Cook flamboyantly claimed on stage at the company's latest keynote event, or just an Android trend follower, the "all screen" device definitely has a multitude of things going for it. Insurance for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 remains at $129, and the new iPhone 8 can also be insured for the same price.
If you have high hopes of getting your hands on the new iPhone X you're probably considering some warranty - just to be on the safe side.
Previously, buying AppleCare+ for a Plus phone cost the same as a non-Plus model, but this is no longer the case. Buyers will get the same two years of coverage for any manufacturing defects or battery life issues and two incidents of accidental damage cover.
Your screen stops working and your iPhone isn't covered by the Apple warranty, consumer law, or AppleCare+.
