Ouch, repair fees for the Apple Vision Pro can cost up to US$2,400

Better get the AppleCare+ plan for the Apple Vision Pro.

The Apple Vision Pro is not only expensive to own, it is also expensive to repair. 

Apple shared the repair/replacement fees for the Vision Pro on its Support web page and the figures are jaw-dropping. The company currently provides two cost estimates below: 

Estimated cost without AppleCare+ With AppleCare+
Cracked cover glass US$799
(~S$1,070)
US$299
(~S$400)
Other damage US$2,399
(~S$3,215)
US$299
(~S$400)

To put these figures into better context, the repair cost for the cracked cover glass without AppleCare+ costs almost the same as a brand new iPad Air 256GB (Wi-Fi + Cellular).

For the repair cost of other damage, you can buy a 14-inch M3 Pro MacBook Pro. Though to be fair, the term "other damage" is vague and the estimate is likely to be a worst-case scenario.

Note that AppleCare+ coverage does not extend to the ZEISS Optical Insert replacements as those accessories are covered by ZEISS separately

Similar to other Apple devices, the repair/replacement fees are significantly higher for consumers who do not purchase AppleCare+. 

If you envision yourself owning one when it is available in Singapore, it's highly advisable to also opt for AppleCare+.
