Apple lists price for iPhone XR repairs — and it hurts
Four days before its official launch, Apple has unveiled the price to repair an iPhone XR screen: $199 (over P10,600).
The iPhone XR repair costs seem expensive until you compare them to that of the iPhone X, XS and XS Max; then it seems like you’re getting a real bargain.
On Monday, the service pricing of the iPhone XR, which offiicially releases on Oct. 26, was added to the Apple site: screen repair and other damages will cost you $199 (over P10,600) and $399 (over P21,000), respectively. With the phone itself costing $749 (around P40,000), the damage repair could cost over half of what you paid in the first place, so it’s best to invest in a tough case and sturdy screen protector, especially since the Apple warranty doesn’t’ cover, “accidental damage or mishandling.”
To fix just the screen of the iPhone XS Max, you’ll have to drop over a hundred more than for the iPhone XR totaling $329 (nearly P18,000), and other damage repairs will cost you $599 (over P32,000). However, if you do have AppleCare+, a screen replacement for all iPhone models, the XR, XS Max, and everything else, will only cost $29 (around P1,500) and all other damages will total $99 (around P5,300).
