IPhone X Screen Repair Will Cost Nearly $300

Posted October 28, 2017

For some of Apple's faithful clients, the joy was being sucked out of a big day - that is, the first opportunity to order the $999 iPhone X.

Pre-orders for the iPhone X opened up at 8am today through the Apple website and the gadget sold out in minutes.

The iPhone X, pronounced "ten" as in the Roman numeral, is Apple's 10th-anniversary smartphone.

Preorders opened at 3:01 a.m. EST for those devoted to having the new equipment in their hands first.

Apple announced the upcoming release of three smartphones on September 12: the iPhone 8, the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X.

IPhone lovers reluctant to deal with a delivery delay could take a chance on getting the top-end model by walking into an Apple Store and buying direct on Friday, Nov. 3.

"The iPhone X includes a new face unlocking feature and wireless charging, but it still can't touch the Note 8 in the sheer number of features".

Apple's flagship smartphone has been beset by production issues, leading Apple to advise customers to "arrive early" to its stores when the iPhone is officially released on November 3. These numbers are significantly higher than what Apple's charging for iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus repairs. The last has an online store and Apple Store app to handle orders.

As expected, the iPhone X is hard to find. iPhone X pre-orders sold out nearly completely and the device's shipping dates have been pushed back into November and beyond.

GBH Insights analysis showed that an estimated 350 million iPhone users are up for an upgrade or will be eligible within the next year, and Ives thinks that most of these users will want to spring for the X.

The sales of Apple's new "mainstream" phones, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, have so far not been overly convincing in the US, shows numbers from analyst firm Consumer Intelligence Research Partners.

During the lead up to the iPhone X launch there have persistent reports Apple has faced supply constraints around the high-tech sensors that support Face ID.

The wait finally is over for eager fans and consumers of Apple i phone as it goes for pre orders on Friday, October 27 in 55 countries including India.

The $549 out of warranty fix actually has the same price of a new iPhone 7. Maxim Group upped their target price on shares of Apple from $171.00 to $180.00 and gave the company a buy rating in a research report on Monday, June 19th. Compare that $80 against the cost of a new iPhone and you have yourself a much better and cheaper option than buying a new iPhone simply because your current iPhone's battery is dying.
