That shouldn't come as much of a surprise considering that the iPhone X sports a Super Retina OLED as opposed to the iPhone 8's IPS LCD, not to mention that its TrueDepth camera, which powers Face ID, is at risk when it's dropped. While authorised Apple resellers in India are yet to confirm the cost for replacing the screen of the iPhone X, the price quoted by MacLabz could just be true. Therefore, if you are prepared to own an iPhone X, its best that you consider buying the best possible protection to avoid paying that high bill.

Screen fix for the iPhone X could cost you as much as Rs 41,600 in India, as per a tweet by MacLabz, a Kerala-based Apple reseller. For Apple iPhone 8, iPhone 7, iPhone 6s, and iPhone 6 Plus users will have to pay $149 (roughly Rs. 9,700) for screen repairs.
