Question of the Day: What is the cost to repair an iPhone screen?

That accidental crack is going to set you back. 

Answer: $29 to $379


  • Have you damaged your phone in the last year? If so, have you gotten it repaired?
  • The cost of AppleCare+ is either a one-time fee of $199 or $10 per month. If you want loss and theft protection too, it’s $269 or $13.49 per month. Is having this insurance a “good deal?” Explain your thinking.
  • Do you carry cell phone insurance? Why or why not?

Here's the ready-to-go slides for this Question of the Day that you can use in your classroom.

Behind the numbers (Consumer Reports):

Have a cracked screen on your 14 Pro Max? Your friendly neighborhood Apple Store will replace it for $379...But if you shell out $199 for an AppleCare+ plan, these problems are a lot cheaper to deal with. The screen replacement deductible will run you just $29. 


The Bummer Arcade game will bring these insurance concepts to life for your students.
