AppleCare+ for iPhone 6s costs $30 more than iPhone 6 coverage

AppleCare+ covers your new iPhone in the event it breaks or is damaged, and for the iPhone 6, a year of service costs $100. AppleCare+ for the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, however, will set you back $130. Additionally, the charge for accidental damage is higher with Apple's latest models, up from $80 for iPhone 6 or earlier versions to $100 for iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

Here's how Apple puts it, as spotted by iClarified: "Every iPhone comes with one year of hardware repair coverage through its limited warranty and up to 90 days of complimentary support. AppleCare+ for iPhone extends your coverage to two years from the original purchase date of your iPhone and adds up to two incidents of accidental damage coverage, each subject to a service fee plus applicable tax ($79 for iPhone 6 or earlier models, $99 for iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus)."

During its event yesterday, Apple revealed a new iPhone upgrade plan that includes AppleCare+. In the program, customers can upgrade to the newest iPhone every year, starting at $32 a month for the 16GB iPhone 6s and topping out at $45 a month for the 128GB iPhone 6s Plus. After 12 payments, customers can grab the newest iPhone and start the program over again.
