    Add up all the Apple Care costs I did not pay... I could buy two iPhone Xs's from what I saved.
    This logic seems to only work if you've stashed away all those savings in preparation. For many, they may not have the disposable income to drop $1000+ if an accident happens. That's where AppleCare+ comes in handy. Personally why I get it on my phones. I can't always guarantee I'll have $550 available to fix my phone if I accidentally drop it and it shatters. (Knock on wood I've never broken a phone).

    But I'm much more confident that I'll always have at least $29 to fix it. Of course, it's money wasted if nothing happens. But I'd rather be protected than not, personally. If I'm buying a phone for $1150, I don't have an issue with an extra $200 to protect it. Especially since it's my most used piece of tech. I don't own anything that gets nearly as much use as my phone. So it's also more prone to possible damage and failure.

    Different strokes for different folks.
