If you are considering buying a new iPhone 7, the optional Apple Care+ protection plan will be a more attractive solution than it used to be. While Apple still charges $129 for the plan itself, the service fee you have to pay for every screen damage incident was reduced to $29 from the previous $79 or $99. This however, only applies to screen damage. Any other damage and you will now have to pay the full $99 service fee because Apple also got rid of the $79 service fee you had to pay for previous generation repairs. Instead, there is now a flat rate of $99 and 29$ per incident no matter if your iPhone is this year's or last year's generation.

The Apple Care+ protection plan still protects your device for two years after the initial purchase. For the price of $129 you get two incidents of damage coverage during those two years. Each time you report a damage you will have to pay the service fee. Since screen damage is among the most common smartphone repairs, the new Apple Care+ protection rules could actually save you some money in the long run if you tend to crack your screen often.
