Right now, Apple Canada is still showing the $49 per incident price but if the Apple Store iOS app now lists an updated $79 price per incident under ‘Tech Specs’ when you navigate to AppleCare (thanks Jordan!):

    So, if I currently have an iPhone 5, which has been discountinued and I need to get it replaced in the next year which phone will they give me? I will be upset if I end up getting a plastic phone!!

    They will give you a regular iPhone 5. They replace it with a “refurbished” one if its standard warranty, but you will still have to pay approximately $229 on any model to upgrade; its always been the case.

    I’m just wondering if the price increase is applicable to new AppleCare Plus only? I got mine last year so I should still be good for the $49 fee, right?
