It's Now Cheaper to Replace a Cracked iPhone Screen

Fresh off the unveiling of the new iPhone 7, Apple has quietly made some changes to its AppleCare+ extended warranty. Though the updates weren’t mentioned on stage, the new changes did not go unnoticed. In the past Apple charged $129 USD to purchase the protection plan which now only costs $99 USD to cover. For replacing a shattered screen, it will now only cost you $29 USD compared to $99 USD Apple previously had in place. However, if the screen is damaged outside of the U.S., customers will still need to pay a fee of $99 USD for replacement and those who are not covered by AppleCare+ will need to pay between $129 USD and $149 USD. Unfortunately, this doesn’t apply to consumers in regions where AppleCare+ is unavailable. With the new iPhone 7 being waterproof, at least that’s one less worry on our plate.
