The iPhone X was released on November 3, 2017, and people around the globe couldn’t wait to get their hands on it. Thousands of people formed queues outside stores in England, Japan, USA, China and in many other places. Some were even placing tents outside the shops, spending the night there. Now imagine, the day finally comes, you have the new iPhone in your hands, and then it slips. The screen is shattered and so it’s your heart. Well, that’s what happened to many fans in China, who reported destroying their new phones. They must be pretty clumsy, but let’s hope their phones are insured.
The highly anticipated phone has been redesigned with virtually non-existent bezels and Apple’s latest A11 Bionic chipset. The OLED screen is beautiful, but also highly prone to breaking. If you drop your phone, here are two sides that could end up getting smashed because of the edge-to-edge screen.

This poor guy is probably crying to this day.
The iPhone X is on sale for $999 in the US and, and if by any chance you end up breaking its big screen it will cost you $376.05 to fix it, according to the Mirror. And the Business Insider says that if something else happens to the phone, like a broken speaker or mic you need to be ready to pay $549 to get it fixed.
This is what an Apple store in Birmingham in the UK looked like on the iPhone X launch day.
So, if you aren’t the most careful person in the world (most of us aren’t), and if you don’t like to pay so much money for fixing the phone, it will be better to get it insured. The AppleCare+ insurance program, which costs only $168 for two years of coverage. That means that if you do end up breaking your screen you’ll only have to pay $32 to get it fixed. That certainly sounds better than that paying $376.05.
In other words, sounds like a good investment to me.
