Apple announced on Wednesday, September 7th, 2016 the company has updated its AppleCare+ extended warranty plan for iPhones. As first spotted by 9to5Mac, Apple introduced a $99 flat fee for incidental repairs under warranty, replacing the previous $99 repair cost for current-generation devices and $79 for previous generation devices.
But instead of being stuck for $99, AppleCare+ customers in need of screen replacement will instead be charged $29. That will be good news for many as replacing cracked screens is one of the most common repairs arranged under AppleCare+.
The AppleCare+ plan will run customers $129 and cover two incidents of accidental damage, with screen replacement running $29 while all other repairs will cost $99, Apple said in its updated warranty.
