Apple has unveiled its official repair pricing for its iPhone XR – and it isn’t cheap. If a mixture of slippy fingers and a glass-encased smartphone see your shiny new device kissing concrete, that LCD display will set you back an eye-watering $199 to fix – if you didn’t invest in pricey AppleCare+.

The displays used in the iPhone XS and XS Max are even more pocket-busting. The XS costs $279 for an OLED replacement, while Apple will force you to shell out $329 for the XS Max.

Thankfully, a battery replacement will only cost $69 across all three devices.

If you are hapless enough to shatter the glass back it will cost a shocking $399 for the iPhone XR, $549 for the XS and $599 on the XS Max.

Perhaps consumers would be wisest to purchase the AppleCare+ package which covers two accidental damage incidents at $99, regardless of your iPhone model. A screen repair would then cost a mere $29.

AppleCare+ is priced at $149 for the iPhone XR, 8 Plus, and 7 Plus and $199 for the XS or XS Max and covers two years.

…or you could always wander down Phnom Penh’s Psar Thmey and haggle with the vendors.
