Apple Details iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Out-of-Warranty Repair Costs [u]
After releasing its new iPhone lineup on Friday, Apple updated its support site to include out-of-warranty repair costs for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in the United States.
The out-of-warranty repair costs for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are $299 and $329, respectively. The iPhone 5s/5c/5 out-of-warranty repair costs currently are set at $269.
All new Apple devices include a standard one year warranty which does not cover accidental damage. Customers can choose to extend the warranty to two years with the $99 AppleCare+ extended warranty, which covers two incidents of accidental damage each with a $79 service fee.
If you accidentally damage your screen on your new iPhone 6, Apple will charge you $109 plus shipping to repair/replace your damaged screen If you are using an iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, or an iPhone 5, the company will charge you $129 plus shipping.
Apple has also noted that out-of-warranty battery repairs for all iPhone models, including the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, will cost $79 plus shipping.
AppleCare+ for Canadian iPhone users costs $99 plus tax and must be purchased within 60 days of purchasing your new iPhone. Customers can purchase AppleCare+ directly from Apple’s support site.
Please note that all repair costs listed above are quotes for U.S. customers, however, we expect Canadian out-of-warranty repair prices to be similar (more than likely they will be slightly higher).
Update: According to @ChuckieDiep, Canada’s out of warranty costs for iPhone 6 replacements, according to the Genius Bar is as follows (we have yet to verify these):
- iPhone 6 – $299
- iPhone 6 Plus – $369
@iPhoneinCanada $299 for 6, $369 for 6 Plus in Canada.
