    I guess this should lower the insurance rates by a bit... No...?

    Is there anything the 6+ does better than the 6?

    Actually it will probably raise the insurance rates, if you look at the way healthcare or gas prices have gone.

    We are a much more healthy, longer-living society; so what happens? health insurance costs have gone up.

    Gas mileage is the best its been ever, and what happens? States raise their gas tax amounts, because they're not getting as much income because consumers are using less gas for the same amounts of travel.

    SquareTrade rates may go up, either because less consumers may insure their iPhones (due to hearing they stay together better) or because they aren't making money with overpriced fixit services.

    Or something like that.

    Well... When you put it that way... But, there are a lot of other parameters to consider in the two examples you have given... Those parameters are missing when you consider insurance...

    Like world crude oil prices when it comes to gas... Also the unrest in the middle east...

    When it comes to health care the equipment and the medicines keep getting expensive... And many such factors...

    Right, but I was specific in hitting on the "gas tax", which is unrelated to actual crude oil prices and volatility.
