Apple Boosts AppleCare+ Costs and Service Fees for iPhone 6s and 6s Plus

applecare+While Apple didn’t discuss AppleCare+ rates as it revealed the new iPhone 6s and 6 Plus today at its “Hey Siri” occasion, the Cupertino company did unveil brand-new prices for the service on its site. AppleCare+ for both devices is $$ 129.99 while its service charge is $$ 99.99. This is a boost from the prices for iPhone 6 and earlier designs, which are priced at $$ 99.99 for AppleCare+ and $$ 79.99 for the service charge. It’s likely the increased costs are due to the new innovation in the new devices, which includes a larger Taptic Engine and the brand new 3D Touch, which Apple is billing as the next generation of Multi-Touch screen.

Earlier today, Apple also announced the iPhone Upgrade Program, which allows those who sign up to trade-in their current iPhone for a new design after 12 monthly installations are made. The program includes AppleCare+ with each iPhone, which may draw some far from carriers’ contract-free prices toward Apple’s alternative. iPhone Upgrade Program pricing starts at $$ 32.41 a month for the 16 GB iPhone 6s and increases to $$ 44.91 a month for the 128 GB iPhone 6s Plus.
