The price to fix your iPhone screens just went up a bit

A day after Apple unveiled its newest handsets, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have been added to the official service pricing list. While we expected the repair and replacement to be a bit hefty, we weren't expecting the price of servicing on older iPhones to jump as well.

Under the new pricing guide, it will cost $169 to repair the screen of your new iPhone 8 Plus, and $149 to fix the iPhone 8. Full replacement for other damage will run a gaudy $399 and $349 respectively. The iPhone X has not as yet been added, but $199 for a screen repair is not out of the realm of possibility.

In addition, the cost of the AppleCare+ warranty increased to $149 for all 6s Plus, and 7 Plus models, as well as the new 8 Plus. The iPhone X warranty will be $199. Older non-plus models will still cost $129 for the warranty.

Beyond the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus pricing, screen repairs for the older IPhone 6 and SE models jumped for $99 to $129, while iPhone 6s and 7 increased from $129 to $149. All Plus models also rose $20 to $169.

iPhone model Screen repair only Other damage
iPhone 8 Plus $169 $399
iPhone 8 $149 $349
iPhone 7 Plus $169 $349
iPhone 7 $149 $319
iPhone 6s Plus $169 $329
iPhone 6s $149 $299
iPhone 6 Plus $149 $329
iPhone 6 $129 $299
iPhone SE $129 $269
iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5 $129 $269

As usual, the following rules are still in effect for these prices to apply:

  • 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+.

The service pricing was not the only cost to rise with the announcement of the new iPhones. Apple also quietly increased the price of its higher-end iPad Pros tablets by $50 to offset the increase in NAND flash memory components.
