    The amount of views this will generate will pay for it plus 10x more.

    It is a 6s as he did show the 3d touch, but as he just destroyed a $650 dollar phone he should have used a better camera

    I guess I miss the point of these every year. Drop glass on concrete or asphalt and see what happens... Shocking results.

    Dude's obviously an Android advocate, you can tell by the tone of his voice and his inaptitude with iOS. He wanted it to shatter to "prove" that the iPhone isn't as durable as it could be.

    Screen replacement:

    $129 ($149 for Plus) for the first screen replacement.
    $258 ($298 for Plus) for two screen replacements.

    AppleCare+: $129 + $99 incident fee,

    $228 for the first screen replacement
    $327 for two screen replacements.

    AppleCare gives you the second year of warranty coverage, plus covers damage to the rest of the device other than just the screen, but I think you can get by without it if you don't think you'll damage more than the screen.

    Covers drops, liquid damage and screen damage. Basically every "accident" you could have.

    3.2 Accidental Damage from Handling
    If during the Plan Term you submit a valid claim notifying Apple that the Covered Equipment has failed due to accidental damage from handling (“ADH”), Apple will, subject to the service fee described below, either (i) repair the defect using new or refurbished parts that are equivalent to new in performance and reliability, or (ii) exchange the Covered Device or Covered iPhone with a replacement product that is new or equivalent to new in performance and reliability (both individually known as a “Service Event”). ADH coverage will expire and all of Apple’s obligations to you under this section 3.2 will be fulfilled in its entirety before the end of the Plan Term when Apple, as a result of ADH claims, has provided to you two (2) Service Events for the Covered Device and two (2) Service Events for the Covered iPhone. ADH coverage only applies to an operational or mechanical failure caused by an accident from handling that is the result of an unexpected and unintentional external event (e.g. drops and damage caused by liquid contact other than as a result of defect in material and workmanship) that arises from your normal daily usage of the Covered Equipment as intended for such Covered Equipment. ADH coverage does not include (a) protection against normal wear and tear, theft, misplacement, reckless, abusive, willful or intentional conduct associated with handling and use of the Covered Equipment, (b) protection against any other act or result not covered by the Plan, as described in Section 4.2 below, or (c) any resultant damage to the Covered Equipment that arises from one or more conditions described in Section 3.2(a) or (b). Apple may ask you to provide an explanation of where and when the accident occurred with a detailed description of the actual event. Apple will deny your claim if you fail to pay the service fee or fail to provide information relating to the accident when asked.
    • Under AppleCare+ for Apple Watch and iPhone, you will pay a $79 (U.S.) dollar service fee plus applicable tax for each ADH claim for a Covered Device.
    • Under AppleCare+ for Apple Watch Sport and iPhone, you will pay a $69 (U.S.) dollar service fee plus applicable tax for each ADH claim for a Covered Device.
    • Under AppleCare+ for Apple Watch Edition and iPhone, you will pay a $1000 (U.S.) dollar service fee plus applicable tax for each ADH claim for a Covered Device.
    • Under AppleCare+ for Apple Watch Sport and iPhone, AppleCare+ for Apple Watch and iPhone or AppleCare+ for Apple Watch Edition and iPhone, you will pay a $79 (U.S.) dollar service fee plus applicable tax for each ADH claim for a Covered iPhone.

    Right, "AppleCare gives you the second year of warranty coverage, plus covers damage to the rest of the device other than just the screen"

    It's just that if you tend to not break your phone, or only damage the screen when you do, you'll spend more money with AppleCare+, and it seems like it's become a slightly worse deal over time. Lots of people will gladly spend that extra for the peace of mind, and it's well worth it for that.
