    But since the back on the iPhone X and the new 2018 X iPhones are glass, dropping them with case on or no case can shatter the glass.

    It seems that there have been a few improvements made to the glass in the iPhone X series and some tests look good but still not recommended to use without a decent case:

    I would still recommend putting a case on your $1,000-plus iPhone XS and XS Max for some peace of mind. After all, it will cost you $279 to replace the XS screen and $329 for the XS Max (without AppleCare+ coverage). But maybe this means you can be a little more confident with them out and about.

    What the heck is that service fee all about? After paying $200 for Apple Care Plus, it seems to me that an additional service fee is what I would call price gouging. I can certainly understand charging a fee after the second or third incident but $39 for using the insurance you paid for?

    By the way, Apple Care Plus which includes lost and stolen items is ridiculous. You would be better off using private insurance like a home owner's policy. Most home owner's policies have a zero deductible for scheduled items.

    I wondered about that as well, but just assumed it was something like an insurance "deductible".

    And as far as our home insurance policy goes, I don't really know what or if anything is covered without some form of deductible. Yet a relative's home window was covered when my son broke it when throwing a dart when we were visiting, but we had to pay about a $300.00 deductible when our boat dinghy was stolen. Not exactly a consistent policy.
