iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Out-of-Warranty Repairs Sure Aren’t Cheap

iPhone 6 vs iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 5s-4

Just bought a shiny new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus? Congratulations. I hope you also purchased AppleCare+ along with it, because the cost of fixing Apple’s new devices is quite expensive, depending on the circumstances. I’m talking up to $329 to fix accidental damage, which sure isn’t cheap. More affordable than a new device, yes, but you get the gist.

As pointed out by 9to5Mac, Apple’s site has the full break down. Each new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is sold with a one year limited warranty, which covers defects in materials and workmanship in the first twelve months; it does not cover damage, either accidental or by using another third-party product.

So, if in twelve months you do find yourself with an out-of-warranty iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 plus, you’ll be looking at some pretty expensive costs, of which I mentioned above. 9to5Mac notes that screen repairs or replacements for something like the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 now costs $109, as opposed to the typical $129. For other replacement or repair costs, you’re looking at the $329 for the iPhone 6 Plus, or $299 for the iPhone 6. Not cheap.

If you have AppleCare+, however, you are covered up to two repair incidents for just $79 each time, which is not nearly as much; AppleCare+ will cost you $99 up front, so bear that in mind.
