AppleCare+ for the newly released $399 iPhone SE is available for $79, a $50 price drop compared to the $129 AppleCare+ price that Apple charged for the now-discontinued iPhone 8.

The standard AppleCare+ plan extends the one-year warranty and provides coverage for two incidents of accidental damage every 24 months, with the service fee priced at $29 for screen damage and $99 for other damage.

Apple also offers AppleCare+ with Theft and Loss for the iPhone SE for $149, with this plan covering damage and also offering a replacement device should the iPhone SE be stolen or lost. A replacement phone requires a service fee of $149 in addition to the AppleCare+ plan price.

There are monthly payment options for each of these AppleCare+ plans, with the standard AppleCare+ priced at $3.99 per month and the Theft and Loss AppleCare+ plan priced at $7.99 per month. Monthly plans renew automatically each month until canceled.

All AppleCare+ plans need to be purchased alongside a new iPhone or within 60 days after purchase with in-store inspection or remote diagnostic. All of Apple's AppleCare+ plans, monthly and standard, are renewable for the life of the device.

This phone just keeps getting better and better: A13, Water proof, wireless charging, wide camera, wifi 6. Nothing in the current lineup can touch this value.

Definitely going to trade in my iPhone X for $320, use the Apple Card for immediate 3% cash back on the full amount, and call it a day.

Wide not ultra-wide camera, but yeah. Presumably 3GB RAM as well. An incredible value as you say.

I get that you're upset there's no new 4" iPhone, but don't be ridiculous. Owning a bigger phone doesn't mean that your phone is "everything" to you.

That might have been the single most dramatic comment I’ve ever read. 😂 sure it’s a little bit bigger, and it’ll feel weird for a day or two, but you’ll get used to it. I promise. Going back to the iPod touch sized phones now feels like I’m trying to type on a credit card.

I did not get used to it for the entire year of owning iPhone 6 nor the 6 months of owning iPhone 6S. Bought 1st Gen iPhone SE day 1 and I'll never "upgrade" to a larger phone again.

What space in your life was affected by adding .7" to your phone?

For me, running with a larger phone is pretty terrible. My current SE fits snuggly in small zipper side pockets. Can't do that with a bigger phone. I'll stick with my SE a big longer, but eventually will have to look for alternatives since Apple keeps trying to force larger screens on their user base. I'd imagine many SE users would have upgraded by now if they didn't care about the screen size. There have been countless deals offered on iPhones released since the SE, if someone wanted a bigger screen, they likely would have upgraded by now.

Makes sense to lower the AC+ price. Except for the processor and WiFi6 (which customers are unlikely to damage), it's basically the same parts they've been churning out for years now.

That makes perfect sense.

As a runner I can't recommend the watch more.

Maybe thats why apple keeps upping screen sizes...to sell more watches...woah .

Also check out "love handle" single finger can hold entire phone running.

This is a wonderful offer, the best I have seen for an Apple product. I will definitely get this when my current iPhone SE (first gen) breaks down.
