This is just one example of how Apple makes money. Repair costs for new gear are through the roof. Buster Hein explains why it’s a no-brainer.
Out-of-warranty costs are so high you could nearly buy an entirely new iPad Pro.
AppleCare+ on both of the new iPad Pros is just $129. That extends the warranty to two years and gives you two incidents of accidental damage like a cracked screen. You have to pay a $49 service for each replacement, but even if you use up both of you break your screen twice the total cost to you would be $227.
Without AppleCare a repair could be $649. Per repair.
