Apple quietly made some changes to its AppleCare+ extended warranty for iPhones today. The updates weren’t mentioned on stage, but didn’t go unnoticed by 9to5Mac. Apple charges $129 to purchase the protection plan for all models other than the iPhone SE, which costs $99 to cover. But the deductible for replacing a shattered screen has gotten much cheaper. Now, you’ll only have to pay $29 if a broken display is the lone problem with your iPhone. Together, that adds up to $158 if you need one screen repair, or $187 if you need a second.
That’s significantly lower than the $99 screen replacement deductible Apple previously had in place for the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus; older iPhone models were subject to a $79 fee for each replacement.
