If your are planning to buy the iPhone X, better choose a case/screen protector because if you need to replace the screen, will cost you $279, while repairs for “other damage” will cost you $549. These are prices for screen and overall damages that are not covered by Apple’s standard 1-year warranty.

According to Apple, the screen repair prices apply if:

  • You need to replace your screen due to accidental damage or mishandling. Accidental damage isn’t covered by the Apple warranty
  • Your iPhone screen gets broken while it’s still under warranty and you don’t have AppleCare+ coverage
  • Your screen stops working and your iPhone isn’t covered by the Apple warranty, consumer law, or AppleCare+

Compared to the prices for other iPhone models, the repair price of the iPhone X screen is significantly higher.
