But for those of us whose clumsiness have betrayed iPhones in the past, it’s hard not to imagine the spiderweb of cracks that are waiting to creep onto that screen.
On Monday, Apple added the iPhone XR to its iPhone service pricing support page. According to the site, it costs $199 (or £196.44 and AU$318.95) to repair a broken iPhone XR screen through Apple.

So it can be expensive to break your iPhone XR, but that $199 price tag is still lower than the screen repair cost of the iPhone XS ($279, £282.44 and AU$858.95), iPhone XS Max ($329, £326.44 and AU$618.95) and even the iPhone X ($279, £282.44 and AU$858.95).
