Apple posts repair costs for newly launched iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

September 20, 2014

Following the official release of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus today, Apple has updated its support pages with pricing information for the repair of the new handsets, as noted by MacRumors.

Of course, repair and replacement costs depend on the type of damage, the iPhone model, and the AppleCare warranty that covers it. Each new iPhone comes with a standard AppleCare one-year warranty, which can be extended to two years with AppleCare+ for $99.

For screen damage, which may refer to a cracked or shattered display, the repair cost is set at just $109 for the iPhone 6 and at $129 for the iPhone 6 Plus, the iPhone 5s, the iPhone 5c, and the iPhone 5.

In case of a defective battery, replacement is free of charge under warranty. But for out-of-warranty devices, there’s a $79 service fee for all iPhone models.

For other types of defects and in cases of accidental damage (e.g. water damage) of out-of-warranty devices, the following pricing scheme is implemented:

  • iPhone 6 Plus: $329
  • iPhone 6: $299
  • iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5: $269
  • iPhone 4s: $199
  • iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, Original iPhone: $149

If you have AppleCare+, you can have the repair cost waived as it also covers up to two incidents of accidental damage. Each incident, however, is subject to a $79 service fee.
