The Apple iPhone X is the most expensive iPhone yet. But the $1,000 price tag is just one thing to consider. CNN reports replacing the screen won't be cheap either. Should you need to replace the screen on the iPhone X, get ready to hand over $275!
Repairs on previous models cost about $150. The new phone comes out November 3. Sure you can lower the impact on the repair cost if you have AppleCare+, but that adds $199 to your cost too. And there are lots of things to consider... like the deductible and the fact that Apple won't cover if you if you have accidental damage often.
So if you're going to fork over all the cash for the new iPhone, spend an extra $10 on a good case.
