The iPhone X launch is upon us. This smartphone is expensive, will finally make you one of the cool kids, and is gonna be really hard to get before the year's up. But once you finally do get your hands on one, it's not just the phone that'll cost you. On top of the $999 you'll pay to remain on the cutting edge of Candy Crush, you'll pretty much have to clean out your coffers again to replace the screen when you inevitably crack it.
To be exact, you'll be paying a flat rate of $279. That's double what you'd pay for an iPhone 6 screen replacement ($129) and 65% higher than what you'll pay to replace an iPhone 8 screen, as the Verge points out. Apple will also charge $549 for any other damage outside of warranty (which lasts a year). Those are repairs that would cost $349 and $399 for an iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, respectively.
