New Delhi, October 30, 2017: Apple iPhone X was witnessed record-breaking demand. The iPhone X, which had been available for pre-orders since October 27 is all set to hit stores for sale globally starting November 3.

In India, iPhone X was completely sold on several e-commerce websites like Flipkart within thirty minutes of going live. If you are among the very few people who have got their hands on this new-age product, you must consider holding on to its tightly. With its exorbitant price and the tough competition to avail it, the iPhone X gives you one more reason why you should be extra careful while using it – the sky-high price to take care of accidental screen damage.

According to reports, in the US, an individual will have to pay a hefty sum of $279 (approx. Rs 18,100) to replace a damaged iPhone X screen. For comparison, screen replacement for the iPhone 6 costs users $129 (approx. Rs 8,300) and the cost to get it done for iPhone 8 is $169 (approx. Rs 11,000).

Additionally, if your iPhone X is out of warranty, any repairs can cost you as much as 549 (approx Rs. 35,600) compared to $349 for the iPhone 8 (approx. Rs 22,600) and $399 (approx. Rs 25,900) for the iPhone 8 Plus.

Authorized Apple resellers in India are yet to confirm the costs for replacing the iPhone X screen. However, users are already anticipating high prices. As far as screen repair cost is concerned, iPhone 8 Plus is placed at Rs 20,000 and AppleCare cost is Rs 4,500.

It is important to note here that Indian iPhone users can only get the screen repaired or the handset completely replaced as Apple does not provide any other damage repair in India. However, iPhone users can avail AppleCare which gives me an additional two-year warranty on the purchased device. This can significantly help lower repair costs.

India is one of the most expensive markets to buy the new iPhone X and looking at current trends, it seems damage to your iPhone X won’t come easy on the pocket either.

“If your iPhone has any damage which impairs the ability to complete the repair, such as a cracked screen, that issue will need to be resolved prior to the service. In some cases, there may be a cost associated with the additional repair,” the company added. (IANS)
