It's worth pointing out that the extra fee is only if you buy the iPhone X from Best Buy upfront; if you purchase the iPhone in installments from Best Buy, the price works out to the usual $999 and $1,149.
Apple has revealed how much it will cost to fix the phone if the screen is damaged.
These include leather and silicone cases in a range of colours from €45, a new iPhone X Leather Folio for €109 and Lightning Docks in colour-matching metallic finishes for €59.
Earlier today, Geskin shared a pair of images that show numerous iPhone X boxes "getting ready to ship".
If your phone has additional damage that is not limited to the screen, the bill could be up at around $944.
Your screen stops working and your iPhone isn't covered by the Apple warranty, consumer law, or AppleCare+.
All iPhones with AppleCare+ pay $49 for screen fix only or $169 for other damages. Apple has now disclosed that the pre-order for iPhone X were unxpectedly very high.
Pre-orders for the much-anticipated 10th anniversary phone started from 12.01 am PT (0701 GMT) on Friday.
"We can see from the initial response, customer demand is off the charts", an Apple spokeswoman was quoted as saying by CNET on Monday. But this order was pushed up by two weeks and is now scheduled to arrive on the November 3rd launch date.
Underscoring the vast interest in the forthcoming iPhone X, a new report from Daniel Ives over at GBH Insights adds that pre-order demand can be categorized as a "stellar success".
I say this because during the summer over a period of many weeks there were little or no second generation iPad Pros in Irish tech stores - but you could still buy one easily online at the Apple website during that time.
The technology giant launched pre-orders in Australia yesterday.
But all of those bells and whistles come at a steep price, both to purchase the phone and to fix it should anything break.
