iPhone X UK release – The simple tip that could end up saving you over £250

Apple’s stunning new iPhone X is now available to pre-order with the device finally arriving in stores across the UK from this Friday.

This groundbreaking new smartphone is the biggest update Apple has released in years and it’s sure to be a hugely popular device.

In fact, the iPhone X has already sold out online with fans now facing a 5-6 week wait to get their hands on one.

Apple has confirmed there will be a limited amount of stock available in stores on Friday morning with anyone wanting to be the first to own one advised to get in line early to avoid disappointment.

The iPhone X offers a host of new features including a 5.8-inch OLED edge-to-edge display and facial recognition which will unlock the device simply by looking at it.

Wireless charging, updated dual-lens camera and new A11 Bionic processor are also headline features along with the all-new Animoji charaters.

This works via the iPhone X’s new front-facing camera which captures and analyses over 50 different facial muscle movements, then animates those expressions in a dozen different Animoji, including a panda, unicorn and robot.

With a stunning design and powerful specs, the iPhone X is clearly the best smartphone Apple has ever made but, with a starting price of £999, it’s also the most expensive.

And it’s not just the initial cost that could hit your wallet as it seems this flagship phone is hugely expensive to fix should you drop it on the floor.

Apple has recently updated its repair webpage which includes prices for fixing the iPhone X.

Anyone smashing their shiny new phone will face a bill of £286.44 for a new screen or over £550 if other parts of the device get damaged.

Clearly, this isn’t cheap but there are a couple of simple ways to avoid these huge costs.

A number of case manufacturers have already launched accessories which cover the entire phone.

Companies, such as Nodus, are even offering discounts for anyone ordering an iPhone X cover early with prices starting from around £45.

Along with the obvious case to protect your new iPhone X, Apple is also offering its AppleCare+ plan on its new smartphone.

This insurance costs £199 plus an excess of £25 for a screen repair or £79 for any other damage.

Anyone taking out AppleCare+ is allowed two repairs during the period of the plan.

£199 may sound like a lot of money but even with the £79 excess you could end up saving £278 if your iPhone X gets badly damaged.
