Alongside the iPhone 14 and ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro announcement, Apple today updated AppleCare+, introducing support for "unlimited repairs," up from two repairs per year.

applecare plus unlimited repairs
Apple says that ‌AppleCare‌+ for iPhone "includes unlimited incidents of accidental damage protection," with each one subject to service fees. Screen or back glass damage carries a $29 fee, while other accidental damage carries a $99 fee.

Accidental damage includes physical damage from handling due to unexpected and unintentional events, and it does not cover theft. Apple has a separate Theft and Loss ‌AppleCare‌+ plan that covers two incidents per calendar year. ‌AppleCare‌+ for the ‌iPhone‌ is priced at $79 for two years or $3.99 monthly.

Unlimited repairs are also available for the Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac, with the feature applicable to every ‌AppleCare‌+ plan.

At some point it is better to just put that amount into savings each month and insure yourself.
Can you clarify? The point of insurance is that you pay a manageable amount per month with the understanding that something MIGHT happen, and if it does, you’re not hit with an enormous financial burden all at once. Saving your AppleCare+ payments for 8 months, say, and then breaking your phone and having to buy a brand new one, isn’t really putting you in a better position risk-wise. Sorry if I’m misunderstanding your point.
