There are a lot of expensive and breakable items in any Apple Store, as a man in Leeds, UK demonstrated earlier this year. He was accused of walking into an Apple retail location and destroying £40,412 ($52,267) worth of merchandise.
Despite the high prices, iPhones seem to be designed for replacement on a specific schedule. After a couple of years, the battery life starts to fade (and that’s assuming you didn’t drop the phone and crack the screen before then).
Even Apple’s extended warranty only covers two years. Do you have to pay $649 — at least — for the latest iPhone every two years just to be sure you have a phone that still works? Not necessarily!
Leaving your damaged phone, computer, or other device at the shop is a guarantee you’ll be wasting a bunch of your cash and time, but we’re left with little choice.
