Did you break the screen on your iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus? If you take it in for a replacement at Apple, you’ll have to spend more than you would have in the past. Apple has raised prices for screen replacements across the board without much fanfare. Screen replacements previously started at $129 for the iPhone 6S.

Bear in mind that customers who don’t have an AppleCare+ warranty plan for their iPhone will have to pay these charges for a screen replacement. Those who have an AppleCare+ warranty program and are within the two year window, their first two screen replacements will cost $29 each regardless of the iPhone model they have.

It merits mentioning here that Apple has also raised AppleCare+ prices for larger models. The iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPhone 8 Plus customers will now pay $149 from an AppleCare+ warranty plan instead of $129.

Reddit users spotted this change over the weekend. They discovered that Apple has quietly increased the cost of replacing the screen on the aforementioned iPhone models.

It now costs $149 to replace the screen on an iPhone 6S and iPhone 7. Customers who own an iPhone 6S Plus and iPhone 7 Plus will have to pay $169 instead of $149 for a replacement.

The price increase isn’t just limited to the existing iPhone models. Screen replacements for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will also cost $149 and $169 respectively. The new handsets will be released to customers later this week.
