If you’re considering buying AppleCare+ with your new iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, you should know that it’s going to cost yo a bit more this year. Apple typically sold the additional protection for its iPhones for $99, which covered two years of accidental damage with a per-incident service fee of $79, and now that same coverage will cost a bit more.
The new AppleCare+ plans are priced at $129 for two years, and each accidental incident will set you back $99. That’s the fee that you pay should anything happen to your iPhone — like an accidental smack on the concrete or a dip in the water. It’s likely the increase in price is due to the more expensive components, like the 3D Touch display.
Keep in mind that the new prices only apply to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Apple still charges $99 for its standard Apple Care+ plan for the iPhone 6 and earlier.
