Apple today introduced its new flagship device, the iPhone X, equipped with an edge-to-edge OLED display, a new facial recognition system, an A11 Bionic chip, and dozens of other improvements.

All of those high-end components don't come cheap, with pricing on the device starting at $999 for the 64GB version. As it turns out, AppleCare+ for the iPhone X will also be more expensive, at $199.

That's a $70 premium over AppleCare+ for the 8, which is priced at $129, the same price as AppleCare+ for the iPhone 7. AppleCare+ for the iPhone 8 Plus will cost $149, with Apple raising the AppleCare+ pricing for all of its Plus models by $20. Prior to today, AppleCare+ for larger-screened devices was $129, but with the new price change, AppleCare+ for iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPhone 6s Plus costs $149.

AppleCare+ for iPhone X will extend warranty coverage of the device to two years from the original date of purchase, and it will cover two incidents of accidental damage. Apple will charge $29 to replace a damaged screen, or $99 for any other damage. These fees, interestingly, have not gone up in price.

AppleCare+ will need to be purchased alongside the new iPhone X or within 60 days. Coverage includes the iPhone itself, the battery, and the included earphones and accessories.

Out of warranty screen repair costs are not available for the iPhone X as of yet, but for the iPhone 8 Plus, repairs cost $169. For the iPhone 8, repairs cost $149. That's a $20 increase across the board compared to previous repair costs. These new higher repair costs also apply to the iPhone 7, iPhone 6s, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPhone 6s Plus.

The new iPhone X will be available for pre-order on October 27, with the device seeing an official release on November 3.

How awesome would it have been if they included AppleCare with the purchase of the iPhone X. Just a thought.

This really rubbed me the wrong way. It basically makes the iPhone X with 256gb $1400!
