How much does Express Replacement Service cost?

There's no fee for the express service. Any fees you might pay will be for the replacement iPhone. 

Some iPhone issues might be covered under warranty, AppleCare+, or consumer law. If your iPhone issue is covered, your replacement iPhone might not be subject to a fee. If your iPhone issue isn't covered, you’ll pay the out-of-warranty fee.

AppleCare+ also includes up to two incidents of accidental damage coverage to your iPhone. Because accidental damage isn’t covered by the Apple Limited Warranty, you can use one of your AppleCare+ incidents to replace your iPhone if it gets damaged. Each incident has a service fee, as shown below.

How do I return my original iPhone?

We’ll send your replacement iPhone with shipping materials and instructions. Your replacement will have factory settings. Return your original iPhone to us within 10 business days of your request to avoid paying late fees.

Before you return your iPhone to us, be sure to back up your data and prepare your iPhone for replacement. Your replacement device will not have your data on it, and you'll need to restore that data from your backup.

What are the charges on my credit card?

When you request Express Replacement Service, we put a temporary authorization on your credit card to cover the full replacement value of your product. This authorization will expire if:

  • Your repair is covered under warranty, AppleCare+, or consumer law
  • We receive your original product on time. In that case, you won’t pay late fees or replacement value. 

Late fees and replacement value

When we send you a replacement iPhone through Express Replacement Service, you need to return your originally purchased iPhone to us within 10 business days. After 10 days, we'll charge you the full replacement value. 

If your original iPhone arrives late, we’ll remove the charge for the replacement value. You’ll pay only a late fee. A late return is between 10 and 20 business days after we ship the replacement to you.

If your issue is caused by severe damage to your iPhone or if it's inoperable after unauthorized modifications, or we never receive it, we’ll charge you the replacement value.
