More expensive iPhones mean what? AppleCare + also more expensive of course

Perhaps it has gone unnoticed, given the somewhat frightening (though expected, like most of today's keynote) pricing of iPhone X, the fact that even the new “more modest” iPhones are generally more expensive than before. . Of course, we need to remember that the 32GB model has been filed, and in purely storage capacity, the iPhones 8/8 Plus offer a better value than its predecessors.

Still, in the cold reality of the words, the fact that the smallest amount you will pay to buy an unlocked latest model iPhone in the US is now $ 700 (plus tax), compared to the previous $ 650.

Of course, in keeping with rising prices, another very important element for a number of users would also become more expensive. And the suspicions were confirmed: the extended warranty plans of the AppleCare + even slightly improved their values ​​even on plans for existing iPhones such as the 6s Plus and 7 Plus.

As you can see on the official plan sales page, AppleCare + for iPhone 8 Plus / 7 Plus / 6s Plus costs $ 150 Apple previously asked for $ 130 for the extended warranty on its larger smartphones. This value at least remains for the smaller models: the iPhone 8/7 / 6s Extended Warranty keeps coming out. $ 130 usual.

The biggest shot, as one might expect, is AppleCare + for iPhone X: Apple charges $ 200 to extend the warranty on the device. Indeed, fixing that glorious end-to-end screen should not be the cheapest thing in the world (alas, I'm looking forward to seeing the iFixit take apart the device), but surprisingly, the repair rates for the smartphone have not changed at all. Compared to previous iPhones: It's $ 30 to replace a damaged panel and $ 100 for any other repairs.

AppleCare +, for the unfamiliar, adds a two-year extended warranty to Ma's devices, charging reduced fees for repairing user damage such as cracked screens or liquid infiltration. As we have always noted, although the plans are not yet officially sold in Brazil, Apple already officially serves the AppleCare + covered iPhones here. Just keep in mind that you can only purchase the plans with the purchase of the device or at most 60 days later.
