For the base iPhone 12, that's a substantial price increase compared to the $199 you'd pay to fix the iPhone 11's screen, likely because it now has an OLED rather than an LCD display. It was also expected that the iPhone 12 Mini, also the cheapest iPhone this year will drive iPhone sales this year, alongside the iPhone 12, assessing on the success of the iPhone 11 last year, as against the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

A new report has suggested that the Apple iPhone 12 Pro might soon be made in India and Brazil besides China, while the battery capacities for the base model and the iPhone 12 Mini has also been revealed. However for the 12 Pro this $279 price is the same as what Apple's charged for screen repairs since 2017's iPhone X. The price of screen repairs covered by AppleCare Plus insurance plans is unchanged at $29. Then we're on to "other damage" repairs, which is when you end up asking the question of whether it's worth paying for the fix or opting to buy a brand new handset instead. But it looks like there's enough interest in iPhone 12 Pro as well.

The iPhone 12 Pro is rumoured to have a 2,775mAh battery, which is significantly smaller than its predecessor's 3,109mAh battery.

You can, of course, minimize or remove these fix costs by opting to sign up for an AppleCare+ plan.

The tech giant is expected to witness 15 per cent iPhone growth next fiscal year and the primary wave of Apple 5G telephones has placed the ball in carriers and builders' court, research-driven U.S. venture capital firm Loup Ventures has forecast.

Under the category of "Other iPhone repairs", the fee for the iPhone 12 Pro is $549, matching the cost to fix the iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone XS, and iPhone X. The iPhone 12 has a charge of $449, $50 more than the $399 applied to the iPhone 11 or iPhone XR.
