The iPhone XS Max is not only expensive to buy, it's also expensive to repair!

The iPhone XS Max is not only expensive to buy, it's also expensive to repair!

Screen replacement cost for the Apple iPhone XS Max in Singapore.

When you're buying the iPhone XS Max, do consider adding in the AppleCare+ warranty package if you do not want to shell out a hefty amount for repair fees. 

The iPhone XS Max has surpassed the iPhone X in terms of repair costs; a screen repair for the former will cost S$488 if it is not covered by AppleCare+. The limited one-year warranty does not cover accidental screen damages as well. When you look at the repair fee for other damages (e.g. liquid damage) it increases significantly to S$888! 

In comparison, the repair fees for screen and other damages for the iPhone X are S$488 and S$818 respectively. 

When the iPhone XS Max is covered under the S$368 AppleCare+ warranty, the screen repair and other damages fees drop to S$42 and S$148 respectively.

The repair fee for other damages to the Apple iPhone XS Max.

Similar to what we recommended last year, you shouldn't think twice when buying the S$368 AppleCare+ for the iPhone XS Max. The cost to benefit ratio is definitely worth it; AppleCare+ extends the warranty coverage to two years and provides up to two incidents of accidental damage coverage (S$42 for screen damage and S$148 for any other damage).
