Broken iPhone X screen = $279

You might want to grab a case when you're picking up your iPhone X as it has just been announced that a broken screen will run you $279 to fix. That's a mighty jump up from the iPhone 6 ($129) and the iPhone 8 ($169). 

Now if you manage to break something else other than the screen, that repair from Apple will cost you $549. 

Maybe you should just leave it in the box and only bring it out on special occasions.

The Verge has the story.

The iPhone X went on sale today, and with it, Apple released some information about the phone’s repair pricing — and like the phone itself, it gets expensive. If you don’t have the extended warranty, a screen replacement will cost $279. That’s more than twice the price of an iPhone 6 screen replacement ($129) and about 65 percent higher than a new iPhone 8 screen ($169).
