The iPhone 8 back glass is more expensive to fix than the screen .
The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus' most obvious design change is the switch to a glossy, glass back. There was a chance this glass would be priced at or around the same price as a cracked screen under AppleCare+, but that's apparently not the case: AppleInsider confirmed today that a broken back won't qualify for a $29 screen replacement. It'll instead be subject to an "other damage" fee of $99 (plus tax). Apple gives users two screen replacements and two miscellaneous damage incidents at the $29 and $99 price respectively.
