Additionally, Apple fees are subject to tax, which adds to shipping costs if the iPhone needs to be shipped.
Notably, Apple says other service providers can set their own fees.
iPhone service costs estimated using the Get an Estimate tool include $99 for the iPhone 14 (regardless of model), $69 for the iPhone 13, iPhone 12, iPhone 11, and iPhone X, and $49 for the iPhone 8 and earlier through the iPhone 5.
For some MacBook computers and iPads, Apple said service fees will also increase.
