When the iPhone X, Apple’s re-designed anniversary iPhone, officially launches on Friday, we’ll see the familiar images of people lining up in front of Apple Stores around the world to be among the first ones to get their hands on the new device. Despite the X’s lofty price – it starts at $999 for the smaller 64 GB model, making it the most expensive iPhone to-date – it’s safe to say that Apple could sell a lot more units on Friday than it can possibly produce by then. When the iPhone X became available for pre-order last Friday, it was sold out within minutes and the estimated delivery time currently stands at 5 to 6 weeks.
To all those quick or lucky enough to get an iPhone X anytime soon, our advice is: do not drop it. According to Apple’s official support website, the company’s latest smartphone is just as expensive to repair as it is to acquire. Repairing the screen alone will set you back $279 or nearly twice what you pay for a new iPhone 8 screen. If you’re unlucky enough to break more than just your screen, you’ll be out $549 to get your phone fixed.
